Rads & Fads

It was back to work today – in time to take the test for credit for the MEIR course (nothing like missing all of yesterday’s lectures). The lecturers for the course were good (defined as knowledgeable, entertaining and willing to give me a certificate based on the few hours that I attended along with passing the exam. Lets get real, the course is required and it would be really painful to have to do it again). Especially since not much has changed on the planning and occ med front in years, lots of years.


I am finished with this –


placed in the middle of the chaos that is my studio table to give me encouragement. It is a bit more pink than I originally had thought.

Other than that, the planning meeting for Yom Kippur that we held after services and Oneg tonight has us pretty well organized for next Friday/Saturday. We have patched together the Torah readings, but won’t be using the actual scroll – since reading without vowels (and with the right melody) is beyond all of us.


Meanwhile, please think about those deployed from their families – it is a hard time of year.


Shabbat Shalom

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!
