Thanksgiving

Today was spent at sea with fairly rocky seas. I used the day as a chance to finish catching up with my sleep deprivation. George spent the day (I think), after a nice breakfast we shared, reading, going to the gym and being a bit bored.

As it turned out, it was also the second formal night of the cruise. Not that I minded skipping both the dressing up and the main dining room or anything. Deciding that room service was more than adequate about mid-afternoon, I returned to my in depth examination of my pillow for most of the rest of the day taking the time only to roll over, check my watch and return to dreamland.

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!
