I thought I left my allergies here:
I’m not quite sure what has happened but this morning I woke up and simply cannot breathe. My eyes are itchy, my nose is stuffy and I can’t stop sneezing for the life of me. Oh, California! Why must you keep surprising me? When I first moved here I was under the impression that Northern California was the promised land. It didn’t rain here, it didn’t get cold, there were no mosquitoes. humidity or spring allergies. Oh, and wine flowed like water.
(Wine actually does flow like water).
But as for the rest…..all I can say is false advertising.
Still, there’s nothing quite like the perfect Sonoma spring day, when the sun is shining high in the sky and a gentle breeze is blowing through the vineyards. Okay okay…maybe I’ve been reading a bit too much Willa Cather lately?
Speaking of reading, I meant to tell y’all that I finished Prep. I liked it but I liked American Wife much more. Prep reminded me of one of my other favorite books, I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe, which I liked much more. If you haven’t read I am Charlotte Simmons, you must. Its another one of those compulsive-I-must-read-in-24-hours type of books. It’s super long but equally wonderful. I’ve read it three times I think!
And now, on to my oats. Overnight oats today!
Check out the original recipe here! I love randomly going back to 2007 and seeing what I ate for breakfast.
