Not  because I have anything against having a cell phone. In fact, for most of us, it has become a way of life. A handy little gadget that serves to handle photos, email, finances, directions, games, group discussions, texts…. That list seems to grow every day. Oh, yes, and passively watch things or listen to anything from books to podcasts, to sporting events, news programs,,,,

Nope, I am phoneless at the present as a matter of common sense. The Eldest’s phone developed a serious issue. The screen is blank, A dark, nasty looking black blank. The phone still works, but without being able to log in or answer calls that phone is not doing her any good. And, without a phone, it is really hard to call tech support….

We found one positive thing – since she is completely on Apple products, she was able to message me over her computer. The end result of my driving over was that I left my phone with her. I drove for years without a phone in the car. I can safely do that now. She has a toddler in the house. I think it is more important that she has a phone.

Tomorrow, we will take her phone to one of the Apple places and swap it out if they can’t fix it.

So today – no pictures as I don’t have my phone and using the heavy SLR is just a lot of work for an update photo. But I made progress on the three on-going daily projects to the tune of a total of ~1500 stitches today.

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!
