Hiking, Or Some Such

We tried to go hiking today, at the ankles or perhaps knees of Mt. Hood, jaylake and T and Dog-of-T and me, but lo, the hard-packed and slippery snow on the trail was not suitable for Witch feet. (Dog-of-T, being a Husky, had no idea what the problem was, and was quite baffled when we aborted the hike after only a few minutes.)

We did retreat to lower elevation and had a nice walkabout along the Sandy River, including meeting several other Huskies for Dog-of-T to frolic with, so the day was not a total loss. But the Witch did regret not being able to take the intended hike, because the area was gorgeous.

Also, the Witch needs a better hat. One that covers her ears. Otherwise, she was properly dressed for 35 degree weather. Not bad for a Californian.

Hobgoblin writing continues marvelously. Some good stuff happened today, and by that I mean I did awful things to two of my characters, ha-ha. :-) 68K words in; nearly halfway through the outline. Yeah yeah. I'll cut in the edit...

I tried melatonin last night. It produced a very weird night's sleep, with a jillion little wake-and-sleep cycles. I understand that it takes a few days to come into full effect, so I'll take it again tonight, and for a while. Also, I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, and will ask about the sleep. At least last night's sleep was better than the night before, when I basically slept from 6am to 8:30am, though I do remember seeing 7am in there somewhere...
