Vancouver -> Hawaii – Day 4

Haven’t I been on the ship forever?


Well, obviously I have already settled into a routine. Easy Peasy – get up, find coffee, find enough light to stitch by. Set alarms so when there is some program or another than I want to listen to I don’t miss it.

In between there is visiting with friends, meeting the occasional interesting person. Ignoring “special luncheons” and heading back to the cabin by noon…

Today’s examples of conferences  included the update on Long COVID out of UCSF (which you can now find on You Tube) and Lecture #2 in Maryland’s Cary Law Center on Health Care Law & Policy.  There is something fun and wonderful about learning as a choice. 

Otherwise – I put a few stitches here and there and now have Haunted Library completed through part 5.

which includes the Poe/Raven shelf as Part 4 and Dracula hanging upside down with his book as part 5. 

on Deck 5, aka the Royal Promenade you can sit on a throne…

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!
