sad little snowfield

I feel so terrible that I’ve neglected my blog for so long. I think I just needed a bit of a break. Maybe I still do. I don’t know. I do know that I have thing to post, It’s just the doing that I’m having trouble with at the moment.

My dad stayed at Timberline Lodge a couple of weeks ago and I took him on a hike up there. Then we had lunch at the fancy tavern upstairs.  Then we did the tour. We were exhausted by the end of the day but we had lots of fun. It was so good to see him. I’ve really missed him since I moved to Sandy. We used to go on hikes together in Spokane and I’ve missed doing that.

I was sad to see the poor, pitiful amount of snow up on Mt. Hood. It seems Mt. Hood should have snow, you know? It doesn’t seem right to see the mountain so bare. It seems the tide has turned though. Winter has arrived on the mountain!

If I was into winter sports I’d be stoked. Sadly I’m not. No more hiking up there for me until spring. 😦

In other news, I signed up for NaNoWriMo. Gulp. I have no idea what I’m writing about. I’ve never written a novel before. I’ve always wanted to write a novel though. So I thought I’d just go for it. The past three Novembers have not been very conducive to this sort of thing (what with all of the cancer and death) but I’m hoping that I will have a nice, calm, November this year. :crossing fingers:

Also, in blog news, I changed the look again. I wasn’t liking the other one. It was pretty but not exactly what I like in a blog.
