In this case, basketball was fine. The Cal women won on Friday evening although they struggled a bit in the middle. The Cal women won again this morning. The game, being at 1030 in the morning was better attended than I expected. Since there was another apparently important game scheduled this afternoon – they had moved the time up to accommodate the men’s team needing to get in their game against Colorado. TPTB were so concerned that they offered free admission to the afternoon game to anyone who came to the women’s game.

We stayed to watch the men. It was a good game. They won. The Straw Hat Band was more than entertaining

This was followed by errand running and back to the house. I never did get back to the cross stitch but spent sometime figuring out my next stitching project while starting another knit hat.

I’ve house clean up to do, more boxes to sort and perhaps some socks to match up.

Gee – isn’t my life so thrilling?

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!

    It is the mundane and beautiful in retirement.

    Sometimes thrilling is Not what I want….
    Calm is frequently underrated.

    Sometimes it is nice to have non-thrilling stuff going on, rather than juggling knives and chainsaws all the time.
