Quiet at Sea

and busy in California.

I can happily report that not much of anything going on here. It was sunny and humid, then it rained. and rained and rained some more complete with thunder and lightening. It cooled off a bit and I spent a wonderful afternoon sitting with Jill in my cabin with both of us working on Cross stitch.

Meanwhile in California – College Guy celebrated his birthday (#26) prior to heading off to work closing shift at CVS. So much for giving him a birthday off.  Two of the girls contributed some pictures –

Maus and Noah a couple of years ago

Shana & Noah – Vampire Ball Heidelberg ~ 6 years ago

along with him opening presents this year –

I’d left a sack ‘o stuff for Dani & Shana to bomb his bedroom (lights, glitter, streamers) so far I don’t have know if it actually happened. Given that there are currently a couple of dogs in the house, I’m thinking that they probably limited the mess to inside his room……

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!
