July starts

with garbage trucks. That is not as dire as it seems. Our weekly pickup for garbage and recycling is Monday morning. And that is regardless of rain, shine, or public holiday.  In my min I see this parade of trucks leaving their home to venture out with various lines and groups peeling off in different directions as they hit major city junctures. We are at the start of the service. The first truck through comes up our section of Euclid, a left turn from Eunice at 0630.  Euough said.

I made a morning coffee run to Peet’s and now am pretending to plan out a productive day. Or week. Or month? Right.

process on the second mushroom girl. I hope to get back to her after completing a couple of SAL sections that drop on Monday mornings.. Otherwise, just a normal day*

*and hopefully I haven’t jinxed myself

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!
