Still Spinning

After spending most of the morning in the dental chair (we will skip the next few hours of patients and friends) I came home and thought about how much knitting I am not doing. I am still spinning.


And reading. And listening to Audio Books.

Books & Audio Books

A quick read and quite funny – The Sleeping Beauty Proposal by Sara Strohmeyer. This is not Literature, but she does deal with a number of issues that are probably important for the single woman of today. I have my frog and I am keeping him (grin).

On tape – Jennifer Crusie. I picked up a couple of her books on MP3 and cassette from Audiobookstand. Getting Rid of Bradley is one of her best. Originally published in one of the Harlequin/Silhouette series (hey, hanging out on BiH bases in the late 90s- after a while you expand your selection by reading just about everything on the shelf) it proves you can write good books without either vampires or werewolves.


The shower, we are done.

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!
