A quick post from the high seas

This will be very short because the on-board computer is so darn slow, and it costs 42 cents a minute. So help me, if Blogger eats this post I'm gonna throw a hissy fit.

The cruise has been wonderful. Can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed and stress free. The food and service are ridiculously terrific and I wonder how I'll ever assimilate to life back home when we disembark. :( The islands are heavenly. We kayaked in Haiti, horseback rode (in the ocean) in Jamaica (and I have a photo disk of pictures of me looking petrified to post when we get back home) and yesterday we snorkeled in Grand Caymen. Tomorrow is SHOPPING on Grand Bahama Island. I don't want to come back. (I would throw in some exclamation points - but that key doesn't work . . . so imagine them at your will).

In knitting news, I started my first sock for Socktoberfest. I successfully knitted in the round on five size 2 DPN . . . but then made so many bad mistakes I frogged the whole thing and will start again soon. I also have almost finished the body of Tie One On (which I wasn't planning to pack, but did at the last minute). I hope to finish binding off and knit one tie today. Then if I can do the second tie on Saturday I can wear it to dinner on Saturday night. That's the plan, but we've really been too busy to knit . . . which I know is a good thing. Not to mention it's too windy on deck to do any knitting.

Okay, I'm off to find Sweetpea and go lie by the pool and read. More on the trip and lots of pictures to post when we get back. Oh, and did I mention, I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME (insert 12 exclamation points here).

I know you don't want to be home yet, but I'm so glad to have you back!! (online, that is! :-)) I'm so glad to hear you had such a good time. Being too engrossed to want to knit is a VERY good thing. Your vacation sounds so surreal- kayaking in Haiti, horseback riding in Jamaica and the one I'm most jealous of- snorkeling in Grand Caymen!! That must have been an out of this world experience. I can't wait to see all the pics! Hope you get a couple days of downtime before having to go back to work. (Pictures! Lots and lots of pictures!! hint,hint :-))
