Out my window

From the plane on take-off prior to me forgetting – I could see both the Bay and Golden Gate bridges, the ridge which separates South San Francisco from the rest of the peninsula. And water. Lots and lots of water for hours on end.

From my window in my shiny modern hotel I could be almost anywhere in the world that has elevated motorways, streaming traffic and interesting architecture.

Day with bright transport

light up at night

Facing the roadways on the fifth floor I can narrow the options down: the cars are all driving on the left side of the road.  I ventured out for only a short time before deciding that warm and humid held no interest for me.

A nap? Oh, that might be really nice.

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!
