MSC Sinfonia – Day 17 – at Sea

5 Dec 2007 – MSC Sinfonia – Day 17 – At Sea

We are at sea, traveling toward Rio. Spending the day in a 12th Floor lounge, it was quiet for most of the day. Imagine my surprise when, right around sunset, I heard hebrew behind me.

Jewish Holidays

It is the first night of Channukah and I had my menorah in my room, planning to light the first candle fairly soon.

As it turns out, I was preempted by a sizable Argentinian contingent who invited me to participate along with a couple of Italian members of the tribe and some ships security personnel who happen to be Israeli.

I am essentially finished with the Mein Weg fronts, freeing up my only 3mm needle. Means I am out of excuses for the second Kauni Facing.

Wanting shorter books today, I went back to Michael Connelly – The Last Coyote and Trunk Music

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!
