Field Duty – Graf spots

Shapes repeat across the landscape in early morning. Some peaks for the body, some for the spirit.

It has kicked off, the Mission Readiness Exercise for 1AD. Rather than being a rated exercise, this is designed to help a unit find the holes in their policies and procedures and fix them before deploying. There is also the small issue of the non-reality of exercise play while the real world continues over-laid on the actions being handled.

I am hoping to be able to get out and upload pictures again tomorrow.

Over all, we are working well together. With the way the shifts are running, I should be able to even make Shrek 3 at 2000.


I am around the corner on second pink/orange stripe sock of the pair that I started yesterday
Broken Rib
Then it will be back to the Rib on the side and deciding what comes next. I have some lovely tiger colorway, a multi-color blue, and then…. I really should get back to Sockapalooza!

Audio Books

I have listend through Nora Robert’s Eastern Shore Trilogy plus Chesapeake Blue. And have started on Evanovich’s Thanksgiving. I have to pull the other five cases out of the car and start loading them. It is so nice to have choices.

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!
