Finishing up

Since I have spent more than a few days on cruise ships which translates to having to disembark at the end, I have always appreciated having the final day of the cruise be a sea day. It makes for leisurely packing and a chance to spend a few more minutes with friends. And more hours of knitting (or cross-stitching) if you want the real bottom line. But it simply wasn’t working for me today.

After picking stitches back out of a small area for the third time, I hung the idea of getting anything useful done. I had also pretty much packed the night before. Repacking to include the fractal (or fractured) clock just didn’t take all that much time. I wound up setting for an attempted nap and solitaire on the iPad.

There might have been a large goodbye at the end of each theater segment, but I am as likely to go to that as to spend time drinking in a bar. I read for a bit after supper and will leave  the electronics till morning…

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!
