and errand running. The day before a two week vacation doesn’t leave a lot of time for knitting, spinning or reading.

I am taking along a number of books on the computer – mostly from Baen Free Library plus Audio Books by Rex Stout, Rochelle Krich and Sue Grafton. I have more on the computer – but this little toy of an MPT (as it calls itself) player only has a couple of gigs.


Yarn selected, I spent a bit of time winding this evening into center pull balls. And selecting patterns to take along. I have a number of interesting ones, but will likely wind up doing a fair amount of mindless socks – easier to do while flying, as I normally do not do well on tracking when there is a lot of action going on.


My suitcase is packed, the kids have finally quieted down. We are planning on a 1000 or so train to Frankfurt where we board an Air China flight for our adventure. I am assuming that I might get to email a couple of times while we are gone and will upload posts as I get a chance. Since I am the custodian of both the laptop and the camera, I plan on making the most of everything.

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!
