I spent today driving around the desert alone, and it was perfect. I went really back and forth on going into work for the morning for our board meeting, and I’m so glad I skipped it. I got breakfast at Cheeky’s in Palm Springs and bought my favorite harissa olive oil. I went to the Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain, and Slab City. I got a date shake in Dateland, Arizona. And I went on a mini sunset hike in Phoenix, before getting dinner at Whole Foods and picking my friend up at the airport and driving down to Tucson! I also listened to about half of my book club book (An American Marriage) as an audiobook, which is a totally new experience for me (verdict is still out on how I feel about the medium).
