Whining

I am still bored with the blocks of color in this particular cross stitch pattern, but I can see progress. I am thinking today of adding the beads as I go, just to provide me some entertainment. I am thinking also that adding in the backstitching on her arms and then her legs just might help as well. With all the stitching so far, I am barely t0 the half-way point. It seems endless. And there are two more in the series after this…

The errands yesterday felt easier than the endless greens. I still need to get to Costco. Yes, we are running low on laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc but I just opened the last jar of Nutella this morning. That needs to be resolved….

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!
