New Year, New You (and me, and us, and Us, and U.S.)

#goalsetting #growth Dec 29, 2021

It’s been a December to remember here behind my eyelids, with ups and downs and all arounds.  Most recent news - I got the Rona! - from my Honey Bear.  She came down with symptoms on the second day of a getaway trip we took to Palm Springs in early December, which was kind of a bummer, as it’s rather limiting to the activity options.  We made the best of it though, took a couple nature walks (oases are really cool - literally - at least compared to the heat of the surrounding desert!) and we did some driving around, including nearby mountain ranges and Joshua Tree National Park.
