Daily count challenge to agdhani

There's nothing like flipping over the page in the December planner that you've been keeping and seeing that you were supposed to do the Daily Count Challenge last night. (Note to self, the planner only works if you have it turned to the current day/week.)

So instead of writing, last night, I took part in the apartment complex's game night, watched an episode of "Batwoman", and went to bed early.

Tossing this to agdhani and wishing you abundant creativity in the day ahead!
