Old-fashioned oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg to start the day. A perusal of the Sunday paper, a visit with our youngest. A satisfying lunch of roast chicken, baked acorn squash and apples. A brief outing to enjoy the breezy, sunny day filled with the tints of autumn. A friendly call from overseas. A break in the bathroom remodeling with the end in sight.
