Ibis Budget

There are those who need fancy hotels. I am not one of them. Now, I won’t deny that staying at a high end hotel or upper end medium like the Hiltons isn’t nice. But rather that I am fine at Budget Ibis, La Quinta and others of that ilk.

All I really require is a clean bed, a secure door and facilities inside the room. The fact that I have wifi with no seeming limit on the number of devices is just icing on the cake. I donl’t have anything on the agenda today. Other than get organized (switch things in the suitcase around) and read.

I would consider a nice long walk if the weather wasn’t so freaking cold.

Mind you – it is not Minnesota cold or winter cold, but I have been cruising along in temperatures a significant bit above these and don’t particularly enjoy the wind blowing….

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!
