Day 7 – Symphony of the Seas

I am at the point where the sea days are starting to blur together and keeping track of where and and when is almost more trouble than it is worth. Other than my last trans-Atlantic on the Star Legend, even most transatlantic crossings don’t have this many sea days in a row. But anyway – this is Wednesday and marks a week on the ship.

Two things of note with the Symphony –

There is one stairway that is supposed to look like piano keys. Walking up or down triggers  lights on that step and starts/continues one or another bit of classical piano music.

Then there is also this bit of “art” in one of the stairwells.

which isn’t exactly either related to symphony or art – but one has to look for themes some place or another..

I still am not spending much time out and about in the ship.  I tried the Solarium this morning, but there was a rather cool wind blowing so I went down to Central Park

for breakfast at Chops. Like many of the other food venues on the ship, it was fine but not excellent and certainly not worth waiting till 0730 when they open.

Cynical much am I?

Today’s location –

If I haven’t mentioned it – I have moved on to a new cross stitch – this is Back to the Grind from Silver Creek Samplers. The fabric is one of the fabric of the month @ 16 ct from Ship’s Manor.

and yes, I do drink coffee. I also have a lot of coffee patterns in my stash and am contemplating that it is time I started stitching them….

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!
