Ok, it is also Valentine’s Day. The ship seems to be attempting to turn this particular commercial holiday into something special. The first positive thing turned out to be some small ducks hidden around the ship. One couple found one, then gifted it to Lev.


Later in the day, we ran into a crew member who was decorating the atrium in red and white. There were balloons tucked here and there – none of which were accessible to Lev. We asked if we could have some when the decorations came down. Instead, she headed back to the office, coming back with balloons plus this particular bit of decoration left over from the Super Bowl party on Sunday.

Other wise, I had a relatively quiet day – most people seemed to be occupied here and there on the ship which is not at capacity which makes a huge difference.  I went to the lounge on Deck 14 forward this morning and had quiet before all the games/quizzes and other insanity started up. 

Cup of Frida is finished. –

Tomorrow we are in Cabo San Lucas. Unless something changes, I am not really planning on getting off the ship.

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!
