Over land and sea

The trip back home takes a long time. Several audio books, a few pictures, lots of sock knitting and hours upon hours. Departing Vancouver at 0850, we are chasing time zones.  About five hours again in the air before Toronto, and three hours for time zones. Leaving Canada, add almost nine hours, and six more hours on the clock.

That means that it will be over 24 hours on the clock before we get off the plane in Frankfurt to face the train ride home.

Bed? Not a chance. The bath and tile places are only open until 1300. If I want a say about our new bathroom, Saturday is my only opportunity.


From my foot tour, an out of the ordinary public building.
Headphones back on – Roberts and Patterson still to go.

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!
