MSC Sinfonia – Day 4 – At Sea

22 Nov 07

Days End

The water is relatively smooth, even given the rain showers that are alternating with a bit of sun. One of the stewards mentioned that the ship can carry up to 2200 passengers but there are only around 1300 on board.

So why are there herds of people (grey haired clinging to walls or stumping along with canes) every where I go?

and otherwise knitting and listening to audio books.


Past the arm splits on the Peapod, I like the bright, cheerful colours. Although this is destined for a baby girl, it might work for a small young man as well.

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!
