Last night started the overnight blackout period with Decks 4 & 10 off limits. Deck 9 remains open but the lighting is limited. Same with any of the lounges with windows that can’t be completely covered. It is not that I mind sitting the dark. It is just that I like to be able to see food, drink and cross-stitch.
During the day, Jill and I spent time again in the Viking Crown stitching. There are always people stopping by. Mostly but not always women with comments. From the crew it is about their mother or grandmother who stitched and/or taught them. From fellow passengers it is usually comments about the pieces. So far, ID rate on cross-stitch is running 80%. Actually better than knitting which non-fiber folks get right only about 50%! After all, if you can chose between knitting and crochet why not make a random guess?
There were star fruit and passion fruit in the Windjammer last night and I am about to eat the last of the pomegranates.
Since it is pull the drapes and keep the lights down time (along with another time zone change tonight) I am thinking about an early bedtime.
