Occasionally not stupid

There are those days where I can astonish even myself. Not on being bright, no claims there. Rather, the rare time according to everyone around me when common sense prevails.

I have mentioned the season ticket to the Right Field Diehards section? AKA the right field bleachers section 149 at the Oakland Coliseum? Yesterday’s game was rained out, actually called early enough to spare most fans the trip to the park. The visiting Astro’s by rumor went to the Warrior’s game. Anyway, Noah & I didn’t stop while on our way home fron OAK. The lucky kids avoided having to haul my suitcase along with his while I made a frolic and detour.

Tonight it was chilly and had been raining off and on for most of the day. I was planning on going to the game, I really was. Early afternoon I was tempted by a nap. I awoke with plenty of time and a new tambourine (thank you Amazon).  Then I really thought about it. Barely two days without a fever. Sitting outside, in the cold.

Yes, I can be nuts, but elected not to be stupid. I watched the A’s lose on George’s iPad, comfy with my pillows and duvet.

I’ll go tomorrow night

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!
