Vacation Time!

Tomorrow afternoon, my best friend arrives in Portland from Reno. We've known each other since we were four years old and although our lives have taken vastly different routes and we've sometimes been out of touch for several years at a time, we've always remained best friends. It's such a blessing in my life to have her around!

Anyway, she arrives tomorrow afternoon. We're then staying at an airport hotel (she's very allergic to cats, so my house is out of the question), then catching a 6:30 a.m. (!!) flight Saturday morning for Miami via Atlanta. We'll stay overnight at the Miami Airport Hilton and then, on Sunday, board the Carnival Victory for a seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruise! This has been in the works for about six months, and you'd think I might be all organized and prepared, but I'm so not! As I type this, I have my clothing packed, but not my knitting, my shoes, my toiletries, my electronics (is it possible to travel without a digital camera and an iPod? I think not) and various and sundry other things, like books. I think it's going to be a late night. That's okay, though, because we'll need to go to bed early tomorrow night to be able to make our butt-crack of dawn early-morning flight.

I will try and post a picture or two from the ship's computer lab. Until then, happy knitting!
