Flu 2

More importantly than doing my presentation today, or finishing up our conference. was buzzing back over to the office in the middle of the day. You see, I am planning on using up a few more days of leave. And to do that, it always helps to have the paperwork in ahead of time.

There are several of us in the same situation – more than 60 days of leave on the books – and the clock resetting to 60 days on the first of Oct. Plus, I have an AF Resident coming in at the beginning of Oct. It would be really nice to have everything planned ahead of time so that I can keep him fully and gainfully employed while he is here. Especially, as it turns out, since I have a couple of TDYs now scheduled.

Anyway – we finished up the program and got people on the road punctually. After leaving home at 0600 for a second day in a row, I am glad to be heading home today close to on time. The dog has been having the lonelies during the day, manifest in paper shredding.


Plyed and skeined. Around 450 meters (around 200 gm). Now to decide what I want for a project. I like the yarn, but there is too much brown in it for my personal use.

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!
