Linking with Laura for Macro Friday at Blogging from Bolivia where I'm imaging it is warm and sunny. Doesn't matter if it is or not, I'm imaging that for my own well being.
I make hot oatmeal for breakfast most everyday. I love it especially in winter when it's cold outside. My Dad used to say something totally un-romantic about oatmeal like "it's good for ya; sticks to your slats." I tend to view it as more wholesome and hearty and good soul food to start the day. My favorite way to have it is with fresh strawberries and milk. With the berries it needs no added sugar-not that I wouldn't love to have brown sugar sprinkled on it the way Mom used to let me when I was a kid. Perhaps I'll treat myself to that smidgen of decadence sometime soon.
This morning while the oats were just beginning to simmer I glanced at the soon to be sliced berries in the weak morning sunlight and got that urge to grab the camera. Here are my close-ups to share this week.
