But now, for an hour every day, I have think time. While I swim. I do listen to music but it's mainly the same stuff over and over again so it does not take thinking. Sometimes I listen to podcasts but usually only for about 20 minutes or so of the hour. The rest of the time or the whole time, I think.
I remember stuff. I create stuff. I solve stuff. Some days I don't do much and some days I'm on fire. Today was mostly sewing. How the Project Runway people put together projects as opposed to how I do it. What projects would be fun to conquer? I do want a new bag. I have a million of them but making my own would enable me to make the exact perfect one for me. How would I do that?
What have I got for dinner? Do I need anything else? I could stop at Trader Joes (just across the street from the gym) and still make it home avoiding traffic. Lettuce. Oh and potato chips. Oh and a potato.
Would I put a zipper in that bag? Or not? Make my own straps or buy them? Shoulder or cross body?
Do I have enough eggs?
Oh I've been at this for an hour... Let's do 10 more minutes and wrap it up.
It really is a lovely way to spend an hour.
All the gates at the baseball stadium had rapidly growing lines. Already at 9:30. The Taylor Swift people were laying low yet but I just went down to the garage and came back on the elevator with a guy who reported that now (11:30) the lines where growing there, too.
I at the other egg muffin and have 4 more in the oven. The dishes are clean and put away and the kitchen is clean. Nice.
