Garmisch (& Partenkirchen)

This is another table top exercise related to Pandemic Influenza Planning. At least that is the schedule for the afternoon. If I had gotten the correct word about not needing to be here until 1300 – I could have stayed in Heidelberg last night, sleeping in my own bed.

But then I would not have had a lovely train ride with yarn in hand,


knitting the Peapod with merino superwash the colour of mixed fruit sherbet. Nor would I have been able to enjoy sitting on the balcony of my room and enjoying the mountains.



It would have been even nicer, had I Internet connection for the day without walking over to the library. But since that was my only option I draft now with the plans to upload the pictures and free the draft later.

Just spent the evening knitting, read most of a paperback by Catherine Coulter (a spin off on her FBI series) and went to sleep early.

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!
