For those who can abide the suspense no longer, I present myself here and now to put your minds at ease by informing you that I went to sleep without pills last night, and I did not suffer from night heat and/or night sweats. Contrary to recent experiences, however, my first few hours were not fitful but relatively peaceful. The second half of the night was more restless, however. Counting the initial going-to-bed, I only made four bed-switches last night. Actually, I seldom make more, but there is often more wakefulness involved than there was last night.
I was a little less cranky today but still not on top of my game. However, we still managed to enjoy a 50k ride. I took the photo of the yellow field (below) today after having noticed it for several days but being reluctant to interrupt my incredible Lance-esque pedalling rhythm. I speculate that this is a canola field although it seems awfully early in the season.
The top photo was taken on a recent trip within the past few days, but I forget exactly when. If I were Swamp or Rurality, I would tell you the name of those roadside wildflowers (or escaped cultivars) at the top, but, alas, I am a urban twit and not a rural wit.
