A sea like glass

I don’t remember many times when I have cruised on an ocean that is this flat. Hardly a ripple, easy to see fish, and dolphins pacing the ship for short sprints before veering off on their own business.

The Sunrise was glorious, as was the sunset (which I didn’t photo from our dinner table).

We had also just had another time zone change last night to match Darwin. 30 minutes forward seemed to be beyond most people’s ability. Instead of a line of 8-10 at 0600 at the coffee stop – there was no one other than me. So I was able to enjoy my latte and even get a second without feeling like I was making someone else wait.

There really isn’t much else to tell you about the day. I listened to a couple of audio books, stitched on Lady Penny Witherbottom (the second of the Sheepchester series) and joined two other couples for supper.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
