Woke up around 8:00 but lay in bed reading my book. Everyone slept in and we had a lazy morning and a nice breakfast. The coffee tasted really good and the granola bars tasted predictable. We quit doing breakfasts with syrup when no one wanted to wash the dishes. We actually like oatmeal in the morning but a change would be nice. Maybe next year we will do cereal and milk.
