Today’s Bloganuary prompt: What fear have you conquered? Since it’s so fresh in my mind because I touched on it yesterday, I wish I could answer that I’ve overcome my fear of flying.

Today’s prompt: Write about the last time you left your comfort zone.
Making sourdough bread.
As with most things, I often find I’m late to join the party. It took me forever to join ICQ, only to have most people already moving to MSN Messenger. Then there was MySpace, but I never got on that train. Facebook came out and I held out for about 4 years before finally buckling,Continue reading “Making sourdough bread.”
Getting my daily steps each day for a full year.
Wow. A whole year. This is a memory I added to the list early in the Spring, months after I initially compiled it, when it dawned on me that not only could I actually be able to accomplish such a feat (ha! who doesn’t like a good homophone?!), but it was also something that IContinue reading “Getting my daily steps each day for a full year.”

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
I hadn’t necessarily been in a rush to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but I just wanted the peace of mind of having it done. Obviously, I wanted to make sure that those at highest risk got their shot before me. In Florida, vaccination sites are abundant, thankfully. Many pharmacies are offering them, and at theContinue reading “Getting vaccinated against COVID-19.”
