Bodensee Bound

The PTSD conference ended in time for me to walk to the train station with time to spare.

A bit over 3 hours later George was to pick me up in Singen . Since I had a choice, being able to avoid train chages means that I can really settle in with my knitting and MP3 player. (This particular town dates from Herzog Burkhard III 919-973).

Traveling on to Bodman-Ludwigshafen, there is this lovely little hotel overlooking the water. Even more impressive is the restaurant at the Immengarten with wonderful food, presentation and not the big city prices.

It was dark, late and I had eaten a sandwich on the train, mores the pity.


I finished up the Wyvern on the train.


And then started the Sept Peacocks from Chameleon Colorworks


I adore the colours which are peacock and the pattern makes the eye of the tail. I think this is one of the most reasonable sock clubs going and the dying is superb.

Audio Books

Short Straw by Stuart Woods finished only 15 minutes before arrival. It is amazing how fast you can get through 6 disks when you are hiking 45 minutes three mornings in a row plus a train ride.

I went back to Fluke to start disk 7.

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!
