My Spirals

Perhaps you are wondering why I haven’t mentioned socks or knitting in the last couple of days?

The suitcase got unpacked the day we arrived home and I started some laundry. Opening up my backpack, the computer came out and was plugged in. Last night I thought about knitting, but was just too tired.

After surviving Physical Therapy and a few hours at PM, I came home and thought about taking some photos. Like the Spiral Socks from from Sockmania that I knit on the trip and the newly started Ganseys from 6SKAL.

My Spirals are among the missing. So are the Love my Gansey’s.

I had finished up the Spirals on the plane Saturday night/Sunday morning and started the Ganseys. I had listened to my small MP3 player till it ran out of juice. Since the plane was full – it was too much of a pain to get out my computer in an attempt to charge it up. It is slow to charge under the best of circumstances and being in a middle seat….

Having gone through my backpack twice, then a third time I am about to panic. The Slugs (age under 20 and still on vacation even tho their Dad and I are making clean-up noises) deny any and all knowledge of me and my hobbies. They have no clue what one ball of yarn looks like compared to another. Unless it is something for them. Or a scarf. Then they notice and have opinions.

This is not yarn -my dears. It a half a sock, a pair of socks and an MP3 player.

No joy on finding a phone number for China Air that even closely resembles a lost and found.

Work is not thrilling, but after tomorrow I am taking another couple of days leave.

Otherwise, it is laundry and housecleaning. We are full of tile and plaster dust from the renovation.

Not knitting and desperately looking for the library books which are now overdue.

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!
