It is late

one this particular Friday morning Well, for me it is late; 1000 to be exact. My day was supposed to have started early with a Webinar put on by University of Denmark, Copenhagen. But 1500 their time is 0400 in mine. Usually not an issue, except when on has the phone on silent. Instead of getting a buzz, this little reminder just flashes on the screen. Not particularly helpful if you happen to be asleep.

On the good side, we will be having another lovely day without excessive heat, wind, or humidity. Also, please note that we have had a complete absence of thunderstorms or tornados.

So, I have managed computer games, some computer solitaire and a perusal through a few author sites that I occasionally follow. And then it is going to be back fighting with the stitching.

1) I started the second of the three Mushroom girls yesterday. And seemed to spend more time in the frog pond (rip-it, rip-it, rip-it, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the terminology).

that is almost 600 stitches and doesn’t look like much of anything.

Disgusted – I pulled out Sapphire’s in Sunshine and started Part 4. It is a bit trickier than it might appear since I substituted the called for with silks I had on hand. Then wanted the sections to balance and mirror each other.

Today I get to stitch more nasty coral on the Deadly Aquarium SAL and then think about either 324 or a bit more on No Time Like the Present.

Or I could clean. Do laundry. Or tackle some completed but not displayed cross stitch.

Computer games?

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!
