This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Whats your kind of oatmeal?
I just tried Steel cut oats. Not that keen............

I got these at the Amish store. I thought they might be healthy. Well I know they are healthy but do I like them? I love porrige. I love oatmeal. I don't like cooking it so usually get instant. Well I thought I would get some of the real stuff. So here's todays breakfast. Tristen liked it.
Cover the oats with enough water to soak in as it boils down.


Cook it down until it thickens and when the spoon is used to mix it, the oats do not feel hard


It will thicken and should be mushy, well it was not mushy enough for me. I dont like sugar so I used honey. When I get the Scottish oatmeal I will use the natural (raw)sugar I bought awhile back for topping cakes.


It looked good.......just pour on the milk and honey and give it a taste. Not bad but just not for me.


Well it was an experiment but I think I will buy some Scott's porridge oats tomorrow.
Or Irish oatmeal.


  1. I like oatmeal too....with cream and brown sugar, yum!
    I like Steel cut oats and sometimes I use the oatmeal that is done in 3 minutes :)

    Hugs to you,

  2. I love oatmeal, I have it every morning ;o) I just eat mine plane with some fruit ;o) I really try to have it healthy ;o) For a treat, I love it with cream and brown sugar! Very bad for you, but oh so good! LOL! We use Quaker Oats ;o)
