Boy, I feel like I'm in a holding pattern right now. We're leaving for Fripp early next Monday, and somehow I don't feel like I can really commit to anything when I have another trip over my head. I know, it's a personal fault. But we've been gone so much this year (relatively speaking) that I just haven't gotten much done. And I don't feel like things will settle down till next week is over.
I'm still researching kayaks. I'm now officially in Information Overload. The latest question: sit-on-top or sit-inside? Most of my admittedly limited experience with kayaks has been with sit-inside models. That's the model that really says "kayak" to me. We did rent a sit-on-top kayak in Hawaii. It was fine, but I confess to being a little nervous about not having a shell around me. But for the type of kayaking I'm most likely to do (warm weather/warm water, calm water) it may make sense. And sometimes I'd like to take a dog with me. That may be more practical with a sit-on-top. But they're not much more affordable than the plastic sit-inside models. Bummer.
I need to stop thinking about this stuff for a while and let it all gel together in my brain. I also need to find a venue where I can try some different models out and find out what I like better.
I'm writing all this like I can actually AFFORD one of these things -- HA!
Oh, and since it's Dear Robert's day off, we'll probably go see Spiderman 2 today.
Daily Knitting Report:
I made it down to one of the intown SnB meetings last night. Yay! It was nice to see some of the folks I know, and to meet some other folks I don't. And I've finished knitting the edging for another swirl on my grey shawl. Only three more swirl-sections (240 sts/480 rows, but who's counting?) to go!
News from the Dog World:
Cammie seems to have stopped coughing, and appears to be feeling MUCH better. Yay for the Bot!
