Packing up

While US residents are indulging in overeating turkey with various trimmings, I was enjoying the views of the Pacific Ocean (yes, to the East) and avoiding the contents of my suitcase, the bed, the floor…. oh yes, and the need to accomplish some laundry.

But, by the time all was said and done, I was checked in for my flight tomorrow, the suitcase was packed, backpack organized and the duffle repacked. That duffle had been just about empty before a “few bags” courtesy of Royal had been added Since these are the really sturdy nylon bags with reinforced bottoms and rope handles, I am loath to ignore them. They make such wonderful shopping bags etc. And gifts, let us not forget that sharing is caring while lightening my load.

I am otherwise being a responsible stitcher and just working along the frame on the WitchyStitcher Supernatural SAL. Since the Ghost has been completed, I really have no excuse. I would like to see how many finishes I can have before I get home…

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!
