Sixth Night

Another candle supplying a glow of light while snow continues to drift down outside.

Not much snow, but the reaction here to the faintest breath of snow is similar to what one sees in many of the warm weather locations.  According to the gossip, there has been a major run on Marks & Spencers as well as Tescos for supplies.

In Minnesota terms – that much is nothing.

As you can see, work on the cardigan continues. Now that I have heat, I suppose that I no longer have an excuse about sewing the steek. I still have to decide what I want as an edges finishing. Might just go with I cord up the front and around the collar.

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!
