desert like dessert

We've arrived in the desert for a few days: get some sun, soak in the mineral-water pools. A complete rejuvenation session to start the new year with. Even though the pools can tend to feel like you're sharing a huge bathtub with total strangers...once you get into it, you actually end up either totally relaxing due to the anonymity of it all or chatting it up with some really great people.

This time around though, I think it's just time to totally relax.
I even bought an itsy bitsy teeny weeny black bikini for the occasion. Who'da thunk it? I haven't worn a bikini since I was a kid (and, for one brief moment, on my honeymoon) but it feels great! I also got a book for Christmas called The Four Agreements, so, between soaks in the pool (and, sometimes, even in the pool), I'm reading that.

hello dessert happy!
