Looks Purple

I thought this was a day of a lot of meetings. Turned out they all had been canceled or put off. So instead I spent the day polishing up a lecture that I am giving on Wednesday.

In case you are wondering why I am so far ahead of the curve, it has to do with the admin person for the course wanting to burn off the CDs this afternoon. Additionally, since we can’t use thumb drives anymore, it is not like I can take it with me. In fact, as it turned out, I could not email it over either. I wound up having to post the stupid thing on the shared document file space so that Beth could pull it. Then I found out that any one can post things. But once they are there, only certain people can kill them. That special, secret membership does not include the person who loaded the file in the first place.

Another improvement for computer safety and productivity. I just love “Data At Rest” new procedures.


At least Book Crossing is not on the banned site list, leaving me able to log in another half-dozen books before dropping them on the library swap shelves.

I also returned Hit Parade and picked up Hit List (Lawrence Block). After listening to part of a Anna Quindlen and being bored out of my head (I find nothing interesting about rich people in New York and could not get past the first chapter. This might be a good book, but I need something more than characters who are so wrapped up in sibling issues and their own angst that they do not see others. But these two were just boring. I was surprised to see Elizabeth Berg and Anne Tyler suggested as similar writers. Both of them write interesting novels about relationships and real people, not plastic mannequins.

Finished up an old Iris Johanson from the old Loveswept Series- An Unexpected Song that was in the library on CD. Just the right thing for spinning: reasonably clear plot line while not too complicated. Which meant no need to pause for this and that.


And it is the second bobbin.


Remember it is Azur Sky. Certainly looks purple to me!

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!
