Heading out

Luck was with me this morning. After sitting all morning listening to a number of necessary but blatantly uninteresting subjects, I was released from the requirement to attend the afternoon session. Instead of finishing at 1700, low flying vehicle down the autobahn, rushing around and trying to make my 1915 train, I had time.

Put it to use figuring out what to take with for knitting:
 making the journey
and redid the suitcase contents. I know I have a couple more tops than really needed; and I might just go and take them out. There is plenty of room left over. I have knitting projects (three orphan socks, or is that four?) plus some new skeins to try out. I have my new Sox Stix from Lantern Moon.. And on the 3 1/2 hour train ride to Zürich I should be able to finish up at least one sock pair.

Then there are all the electronics. Laptop, mp3 player, cassette player, camera. Oh, and batteries.

The dog is not pleased, but I am out the door and she will have to settle for the eldest coming by regularly for food and company.

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!
