and rambling notebook writing.
Alex is out of town this weekend so I'm, by default, filling up quiet time in the house with solitary thoughts and ponderings.
I awoke hankering for some protein pancakes, but when I discovered we were fresh out of eggs, I went on a mission.
Apparently eggs and pancakes were just not in the cards this morning after traveling to 2 different locations and leaving empty-handed (the first because they were out of eggs- how does that happen? and the second because they didn't carry any that were free range or organic. I'm picky about my eggs).
I was in a hurry to meet with my new scene partner in (duh duh duuuuh) the valley, so I jumped back in the car and ended up making a pit stop for breakfast.
I was starving!
So I enjoyed 2 scrambled eggs, a bowl of grits (YES!), whole wheat toast and an "ultimate pancake" (granola, nut and wheat filled)
All that was left on the plate by the time I finished was 2 bites of grits and 1 bite of toast.
TOLD YOU I was hungry.
After a very successful meeting with my scene partner, I ventured into Samuel French for a bit of splurge-tastic time (O GEEZ!) then headed home, THINKING again.
I discovered today that when I'm alone with my thoughts, I tend to THINK myself out of taking ACTION- for fear of failing, the act being a waste of time... whatever the case may be.
But I also realized the instances I've felt most content and accomplished are those when I'm DOING something and not THINKING so much- committing myself to writing this blog is a prime example.
Therefore, I'm going to start making a mindful (though not too thoughtful) effort DO more often.
Off to the gym before work.
Be back tomorrow with a lengthy pantry post and future blog plans.
