We are planning on going camping/floating in a couple weeks and I can't decide where to go. I think a slow river would be best, and also a raft would safer and more conducive to floating with a toddler. However, I remember taking a raft one time on a floating trip when I was a kid. My brother, my two cousins, and I were in it and it was soooooooooooooooooo slow. The rest of our families (in canoes) reached the end point hours before us, and by the time we arrived we were practically ready to drown each other and ourselves out of sheer frustration over a way-too-long day on the river. So, to avoid that this time, maybe we should choose a faster river? I don't know.
Working on the log cabin quilt has inspired me to knit more blankets. I got a great book, 200 Knitted Blocks, from the library and it's definitely going on my must-buy list. Right now I have four blankets on the needles. If only there were more hours in a day, I might ever actually finish one of them.
