And more rain

really, I shouldn’t complain at all. The ski areas are enjoying bountiful snow. I don’t have to worry about watering anything. We might even be increasing the reservoirs by a centimeter or two.

The Eldest had hail at her house yesterday. We just had rain yesterday and rain today. And wind, can’t forget the wind. Along with the projected rain for tomorrow.

Other than errands – I baked scones to take with me to the infusion center tomorrow and Shana baked chocolate chip cookies. The dogs were really interested in what was on the counter and managed to snag a couple of the scones. I think they would have rather had the pot of chili, but I didn’t give them that option.

I made more progress

which leaves me under 1500 stitches to go. It is getting easier as there are more areas where a color is used for several squares. I am making a few adjustments as I go, but it is close enough to make me happy.

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!
