I do not like routine. It’s plain, boring and too predictable. I want adventure and change. Even as a child I would rearrange my room just for the fun of it. But routine is necessary, especially for this hypoglycemic, ADHD girl. I start each morning at 5:30 am. A cup of coffee and a quiet, sleeping house. It it is most wonderful hour of the day. I read my Bible, I walk through the garden, I watch the sun rise. Honestly, this is one of the few routines I anticipate.
By 6:45 I’m up and having breakfast. Scrambled eggs and toast. Every day. Every. Single. Day. Because if I don’t my blood sugars get so out of whack that the rest of the day is a loss. I’m so sick of scrambled eggs; but they seem to be the only protein that starts my day off right. So lately I’ve been trying to liven them up a little. I’ve used cheese in them for months so that’s getting old. I added bacon bits for awhile but wasn’t overly impressed. So for the past few days I’ve really stepped up my game. I’ve started adding garlic powder, crushed red pepper and a little Italian seasoning. It’s SO MUCH BETTER! And then today I remember there was a just a bit of garden fresh zucchini left in the refrigerator. I pulled it out, sautéed it with some olive oil and mixed it in with my eggs. Ya’ll! It was SO GOOD!!!
It was so good I had to take a picture and share it with you. Don’t mind the Ronald McDonald plate!
So at least for breakfast I was able to step out of the dullness of routine. I still have to grind the coffee and prep the pot for tomorrow. I still have to make sure the trash gets out every Tuesday. I still have to feed the boys at 7:30 every morning. I still have to wash and fold laundry every time the hamper is full.
But at least for today there was a happy break from the mundane. Cheers to new adventures!
