New books and stories


Just picked up from the library today:
Scots on the Rocks – Mary Daheim
The Tell-Tale Horse – Rita Mae Brown
High Noon – Nora Roberts
A Wrongful Death – Kate Wilhelm
Hard Row – Margaret Maron

And in audio – Kyle Smith’s A Christmas Caroline the first disk of which has reminded me of why I don’t bother with chick lit, self absorbed fashionistas and other totally irritating characters. They may exist in the world, but I am glad that mine is populated with real people who have better things to do with their lives than worry about commenting on other’s fashions.

But then again, I belong to that lovely segment of society that finds pleasure and ease in knowing what I am putting on for clothing each and every day. Aka – a uniform that means something.

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!
