Calmer, blue seas

the weather seemed to break sometime last night. Certainly this morning the skies were clear although a steady march of waves was clearly visible. We are cutting across them at an angle while contributes to the occasional bump and shift.  It must be calmer, I am certainly seeing what are new to me faces among the passengers.

0200 brought another time zone change. This was our third? fourth? I am clueless at this point as it doesn’t really matter. I am on ship’s time which I am assuming will wind up with US East Coast by the time I dock.

I headed to the main dining room again for supper. Most notable was an incredible beet salad. Yes, I know that many people don’t care for beets. I do, so ….. tiny minced bits with a few nuts and some citrus. Whipped goat cheese on top.

Made good progress on the right upper lion –

It feels like I should be further, but at least I am past the 50% point. There are a lot of stitches in those lion bodies and the bottom two are rather large.

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!

    Joy is waking up after a stormy night under a deep blue sky with the sun glinting off a top deck covered with salt.

    According to my calculations you should be almost in Freeport as I write this.
    I approve of the owl on your latest artwork. All fairly quiet here. Helen and I did some serious gardening on Sunday and I have just (reluctantly) done some more.

      there is the owl, and the cat, and rabbit, and squirrel.

      We stopped today in Hamilton – to rain…
