Today is much cooler here in MA. Yesterday we were literally melting into puddles and today I could easily be comfortable in pants.
I did have to wear a jacket and pants when I went out for my run this morning. My hands were even a bit numb when I got back to my house. It was a great 6.5 mile run and honestly I much prefer running with a slight chill in the air. I do enjoy the warmth of Summer but Fall is my favorite time of the year.
Breakfast this morning was rather Fall inspired – Apple Cinnamon Oats.
I added cooked chopped apple pieces to the oats during the cooking process. I left the skin on the apple this time and it did not cause a funny texture. The end result was very palatable.
Since it is so breezy out this morning, I have my windows open. I love the fresh air streaming through the house. It is a great day for baking as well. I have my latest bread dough experiment rising. We will be sinking our teeth into freshly baked bread today – yum!!! I am looking forward to the aroma of baking bread penetrating the house. As I said before, it is one of my favorite smells.
Do you have a favorite scent? Is it food related, floral or do you prefer a more exotic smell? I love the smell of lilacs and lavender. I also often find myself gravitating toward the exotic smells of jasmine and coconut.
I hope you have a fabulous Thursday.
