And in NYC

the birthday box arrived in plenty of time with clear instructions not to open till today

special for the 6th


Miriam actually waited until her birthday to open it.


I figured the birthday girl needed a tiara, and every young woman needs a unicorn headband. Both together?  She is living & working in NYC and having a good time. According to her note, I think a few of the items wound up at work providing entertainment all around.

My day at sea was relaxing as always. Tomorrow, since all the family birthdays are past till July, it will be back to the regular cruising natter….

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!
