George’s turn

and today he had his first cataract surgery. It is so much easier when it is me doing the medical “whatever.”   I figured us as lucky, he was the first case which meant checking in before 0730 but he was ready to be picked up by 0900 which suited me just fine.

The rest of the day was consumed with laundry, checking in on George (who was “resting his eyes”) and trying to decide if anything sounded good to eat. My go to recently has become single egg microwaved omelette rolled up in a tortilla which whatever veg happens to be around.

And stitching.  I am working on the current addition to Vampyrum, having finished the first wing and needing to complete the second plus four little motifs.

plus making a serious dent in Treasure Island. Especially that Island. I have decided that I really don’t care if there are names on different seas or portions of the island. I just want it done – one pirate and 2/3rds of the Island to go.

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!
