In an effort to not buy a box of cereal and eat the whole thing in two-three sittings, I started eating oatmeal for breakfast and continued that for about 2 and a half years - only stopped after I moved to NYC and didn't have a kitchen suitable to cooking. Now that I have counter space and it is clean(er - almost to my standards) I may go back to the oatmeal mixed with granola breakfast.
That is one of the things that make me feel cozy in the mornings - even in the warm summer months.
Another thing is my college track and field sweatshirt. I love it and need to bring it back from StL
if I can get back there for Thanksgiving. When I told the track crew my size, I was still in my oversized clothing phase, so, despite my growth since those years, it is still huge on me. I must have really looked crazy when I was in school, much smaller and swimming in that sweatshirt.
Coziness is also the feeling of being in my BFs arms. It just feels right and safe - even though I know that there is so much craziness going on around me.

It's amazing how comforting a bowl of oatmeal can be. It does have a tendency to make you feel safe because it's healthy and it makes you feel all cozy and warm inside, too. Looks like you're blessed with many things in your life that make you feel good about life; that's what it's all about. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
It really is a winter comfort food. And thanks, I am pretty blessed with some things in life.Delete
Thanks for visiting!
I have a wonderful oatmeal recipe for the microwave (no space needed). Shoot me an e-mail if you want it and I'll forward it to you. Sporadicpublication@me.comReplyDelete
I must hear this!Delete
And now I want some oatmeal!ReplyDelete
I know. I haven't had any in over two months, but will start back again tomorrow morning.Delete
I love maple and brown sugar oatmeal and use to eat it year round when I was a kid.ReplyDelete
That was always my favorite when I got the prepackaged kind!! So good.Delete
Mmmm warm Porridge (oatmeal) and cosy cuddles love them both!ReplyDelete
Cosy cuddles are great! I used to love reading stories where they called oatmeal porridge!Delete
I'm a fan of oatmeal as well. You're right it does make you feel cozy. Also, thanks for reminding about oatmeal and granola, several coworkers have been raving about it. Time to try it :).ReplyDelete
Oatmeal and granola is so great!! I would normally break up the Nature's Valley ones, but tomorrow I'm going to start trying a different granola cereal to just pour right in... hopefully it is good!Delete
Oatmeal is definitely a great comfort food - though I doubt I could eat that for breakfast everyday for 2 1/2 years. :)ReplyDelete
Great post. Makes me feel all warm and cozy.
I didn't think I could go that long doing it, but I guess I just got used to it.Delete
"Coziness is also the feeling of being in my BFs arms" too cute *grin*ReplyDelete
Not a huge fan of oatmeal. But wearing the man of the house's huge-for-me Navy sweatshirt always makes me feel warm and cozy! (and connected to him even when he's out of the house)ReplyDelete
I don't know why it is that oversized clothes make us feel so comfy! I guess it's like having a person's arms around us... or something.Delete
I love oatmeal and sweatshirts---woohoo! Found you from Jana's place & SOC!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping in and sharing your own cozies on your blog!Delete
Oatmeal is the ultimate cozy breakfast.ReplyDelete
Definitely! I am going to go back to it tomorrow morning.Delete
I've never been able to work out how to make oatmeal. No matter how many times I try it turns into a gelatinous mess.ReplyDelete
Haha!! Perhaps you need more water when you mix it, or you could add some sort of milk.Delete
Mmm... I love oatmeal! And now I need some in my pantry!ReplyDelete
I know! I had to go buy some granola today so I can start making some oatmeal again tomorrow morning!Delete
I've never really been a huge fan of oatmeal but every now and then I crave it. It is something that seems warm and cozy.ReplyDelete
Sometimes, there is just something about it. Especially when you find a great flavor combination. I used to be drawn to the maple brown sugar.Delete
