Daily Fiber

Lately I've been pretty good about spinning on my Lendrum spinning wheel everyday. I've found that if I sit down to spin first thing in the morning then I can get about 20 minutes of spinning time.

Here's how I do it: I set the kitchen timer for 6 minutes which is how long it takes for the saucepan of water to boil. I start spinning.

When the timer goes off I walk into the kitchen, add the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats and raisins to the boiling water, lower the heat to medium, and reset the timer for another 6 minutes.

After a few moments, I stop spinning and walk back into the kitchen to make sure I did lower the heat and the oatmeal hasn't boiled over out of the pot. Restart the timer.

Restart spinning. When the timer goes off I turn off the stove, stir in a bit of milk and reset the timer for 6 more minutes. During this period the milk warms up and the oatmeal gets nice and creamy (and I get more spin time).

When the timer goes off for the last time I spin for a few more minutes.

Breakfast is ready, I leave the wheel, and my day begins.
