My vacation officially kicked off at 6:30 last night as we were invited to be a part of a cruise on the St. Croix River. It was all a part of a friend's celebration of the 25th anniversary of her ordination. So her congregation sponsored a dinner cruise for her and her family, as well as some of the members of her congregation. They had a great dinner, a fun program honoring her (my husband wrote a song in her honor) and a three-piece dixieland jazz band. My husband and I liked them so much, we started calling out the songs we wanted them to play (It Don't Mean a Thing, St. Louis Blues, Washington Square). Then toward the end of the cruise they came over and serenaded us.
I finished up a pair of bright blue cabled footies as a little present for my friend. I actually put the finishing touches on the toe while we were driving out to the party.
This morning my husband made breakfast. I started knitting a washcloth using a cotton blend yarn. (I am avoiding the sweater.)
