A Warm Breakfast For A Cold Morning



I woke up freezing this morning -- 22 degrees outside and cold in the house as well. After I let the dogs out, I fixed my breakfast and as I looked at the oatmeal, nuts, ginger, bananas and milk in my Fiesta ware bowl with coffee in the Winnie and friends cup that Rachael gave me, I thought it looked so pretty that I had to take a picture and share.  


Today, I have to do some work I really don't want to do but that has to get done. One project is dealing with this 90-day pharmacy our health insurance requires us to use. I'm having a dispute with them involving just a small amount of money, but they are so screwed up that I am not letting them get away with it. I also have this urge to show them how dumb they are. Have you ever experienced that? I'm not so bright either, acting on it, because it will take a few hours of my time, but still. The urge is there. Then, or rather before that, I have to do some work on a project for my husband that also involves analyses and letter writing. In the old days, I used to love projects like these. Now, however, I much rather clean house! Or blog, of course.




Have a great day everyone!

  1. Inger... Oh boy, are you getting a taste of what's ahead, too? There was ice in the bird baths for the past few mornings. Fiesta ware. I love those bright colors. Do you have a set? I don't know Winnie and Friends... Is that Winnie the Poo? I'm sure it warms up during the day, for you. Keep warm.... not so much house work!!!!!!!! Ha

  3. Ugh nothing is worse than dealing with insurance/pharmacy issues! I'm having a Whirlpool technician come to my house this afternoon to try yet again to fix this piece of garbage oven I bought in June. Even tho a technician has been over 5 times and done two major fixes, Whirlpool is only counting it as one visit. And they won't replace an appliance until 3 distinct visits. So this one counts as 2, and I'll probably need one more and then I can get a refund on this awful stove they sold me that doesn't work.

    So there, that's my rant for the day. I should probably have just written a post about it right?

  4. I'm kinda doing the same thing. I have to help my dad straighten out an insurance mess. I also said I'd write two book reviews.... I've read the books but just haven't gotten around to doing the writing.
    Instead, I'm doing some sewing! My guest bath will have a valence and a dolled-up shower curtain by the end of the day - maybe!

  5. That's one of the secrets of our long term marriage. My husband takes care of all the insurance garbage & I do all the hard work--drawing pictures & writing funny stuff. Oh, the sacrifices we must make!

    Your breakfast looks so yummy I'm going downstairs to make myself o bowl of oatmeal now--instant, of course.

  6. It's supposed to go down to freezing here tonight...maybe some snow. Oatmeal weather.

    Stick to your guns with that pharmacy.

  7. brrr. and i'd just let things slide - if it's only a small amount of money, it's not worth your time and stress in dealing with it... much happier ways to spend your time - but that's just my opinion. :)

  8. Your breakfast looks like a good hearty one to start your day with, and to start your battle with the insurance company!! I've had a similar thing happen, and I know all too well how hard it is to navigate the maze of insurance coverage, co-payments, etc. I hope you've been able to figure it out, and have had a good day--Stay warm!!!

  9. Good luck with the pharmacy - hope you straighten them out. Hey, I'd rather do anything other than house work!

    We were 9 degrees this morning.

  14. Yes, it is that Winnie -- just didn't know how to spell Pooh, is that right? Oh, fishducky, our situation is the reverse, my hubby does all the hard work and I all that boring stuff. texwisgirl, it was a small amount of money but some unbelievable errors on these people's part, like payments that were removed from statements, or applied to stuff paid back in 2009. Couldn't let it ride. Sandy, please, please do adopt a donkey. There are no better animals. I'm lucky to have them close by. Thanks for all your other comments everyone. It is getting chilly at night but still warm during the day.

  15. That is a lovely breakfast, indeed. I bet it warmed your innards all day long.

    I hate those scuffles with medical insurance people. They're always wrong, and they never want to admit it. I hope you win, and teach them a lesson.
