I've given up on going kayaking today. No one will come with me, and I don't think I'm well enough to pull myself in a boat if I dumped. This probably means I shouldn't be kayaking at all. I have, however, succeeded in finding alternate entertainment: tulip shopping! Basically this is an expedition to Mount Vernon, where we will buy tulips (but sadly not at Lefeber tulips - I'm so sad to hear he gave up the business but really glad that he kept his farm) after we have lunch at the Mexico Cafe and before we eat ice cream at the Golden Scoop (or whatever it's called). Happily, this will all keep me from doing dishes or otherwise being productive today.
