And I dug out my dulcimer to take along with me. If you don't know what it sounds like - click here. The scenery at the beginning of that clip looks just like where I'm goin'. Cool, huh! I haven't played in a few years, but since I'll be in time for the annual folk festival, I'm sure I'll find someone that can get me started again. They'll be jammin' the old time folk music on every street corner in town. I bought this dulcimer years ago on a visit to my dads - it was made by a local craftsman and has a wonderful sound and I'm kind of excited to get started again.
So I'm pretty much ready. I just pray for good weather, plenty of caffeine and a good signal on my Garmin. I'm also prayin' to find my darn camera charger before I leave... although I've searched everywhere and then some. Doesn't it just figure... but I'll look again tomorrow. ::crossing my fingers::
Monday Update: I FOUND it! And good thing too since I've gone to four stores and none had a charger... the only way I'd get one would be to order online and by then it would be too late. So i walked in the door after work, went to my drawer of bento supplies (planning to make some bento box snacks for the trip) and there it was!!! And trust me.... I searched that drawer no less than THREE times... yet there it was today. Amen for the miracle. After a truly crappy day with the whole move situation... among other things... I really needed that little bit of happy - and you'll get MUCH better pictures when I get back. *grin*
