I Forgot to Eat, Today!

Ever have one of those days where you forget to eat? I haven't, at least not in a long while. I've had days when I didn't feel like fixing anything, but it's been months -- maybe years -- since I actually forgot to eat. And I have to tell you that it's a good feeling.

For me to forget to eat, it means that I am engaged -- immersed -- in something that I like, that intrigues and invigorates me; something important to me that holds my total attention. It's been a long while since I became that engrossed in anything or series of things... that I forget to eat -- not like I couldn't afford to skip a couple of meals, anyhow. LOL.

Today... I was engrossed in photo shoots -- fun shoots! -- one of which was a stunning young lady who needed senior portraits, and I did a great job of it. Earlier in the day, I photographed a very cute baby for his 1 year old portraits, then later another senior portrait session. In between, I was engrossed with communications with various friends, and all in all... it was a great, fun, productive day, and I now have something to look forward to tomorrow -- like processing and uploading all those images...

Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh. I like my life today. Life is good.

Have you forgotten to eat lately? Well, if not... here's hoping you find something in your life soon -- something awesome -- that makes you forget to eat, and that will be an excellent day.

Incidentally, if you're remotely interested in my various photo projects and commissions, then mosey on over to my photo blog at Sign up to receive email notification when I do a new post there. Otherwise, I'll e-talk to you next time. Who knows, maybe I'll forget to eat again tomorrow. Two awesome days in a row? I can only hope.

Have an awesome day.

Soft Crusted Honey Apple Oat Bread...

Sometimes, life is best epitomized by simple pleasures. I'm not a big bread eater these days, due to my relatively low-carb life style -- note the "relatively" part. But if one is going to veer from the low carb path, it should at least be in favor of high fiber and /or multi-grain, which I'm told are good for me.

I thank whoever in Danny Wegmans' empire came up with Soft Crusted Honey Apple Oat Bread. This stuff is so good I'm surprised it's not illegal. Baked fresh each day, wrapped lovingly. Take a loaf home, slice it thinly... put it in the toaster... when it pops, put some real butter on it (butter has zero carbs, so I'm there in spirit) and when it melts...slip that baby in your mouth and take a little bite. Don't rush... savor that. Oh yeah (was that an Herbal Essence commercial?)

Yup... the simple pleasures in life. You gotta give that a try. When you do, tell Danny Wegmans that I sent you -- maybe he'll send me a coupon for a free loaf.

Have an awesome day.
