Breakfast Routine

I know I’ve talked about how I like change, how quickly I get bored with routines, how I thrive on reaching for dreams. But there is one routine I need. It’s a way to start my day off right.

Time to Eat…

I enjoy breakfast foods of all kinds. I like to try new breakfast ideas. But I have a confession to make. I enjoy experimenting with breakfast novelties for DINNER! When it comes to breakfast, I eat the same thing every morning.

What keeps my interest, you ask? What routine has stuck around for more than 10 years? Well, here it is…

Every morning, I sit somewhere comfy and cozy and eat…6 graham cracker squares spread thickly with smooth “Simply Jif” peanut butter. I take a drink of hot tea with cream (well, that part has changed…it used to be coffee with soy milk), take a bite of cracker, take a drink of tea, take a bit of cracker, and continue until it is all gone.

And while I eat, it is time to think. I ponder what is on my to-do list for the day. I contemplate new ideas, creative projects, and people to meet with. I savor the tastes and I savor the pause before the day really starts.

Time to Think…

Okay…I admit it, sometimes routines are comforting. Sometimes routines are good. Sometimes I like the same-old, same-old; the old stand-by; the reliable things…

Shhh! Don’t give away my fuddy-duddy secret…okay?!
