Day 5 – Symphony of the Sea

The first bit of good news today: no time zone change. That more than happily worked for me. Mostly what I am trying to do is make sure that I know the “official time zone,” not as related to any city but in terms of GMT.

Looking at our current positions doesn’t really help. While it has position and ship’s time along with temperature and humidity – there is nothing, absolutely nothing that places anything relative to GMT. Why do I care? Because I am trying to calculate time differences for messages, Zoom calls and just general sanity. 

I went back to my other current stitching project which I can’t show until the pattern is released. From there, I probably should return to my LongDog sampler rather than start another new project. But shiny is calling to me ….

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!
