I think maybe I need to get back in the habit of daily posts, or at least multiple times a week, even if they are short entries. For one thing, my right wrist has been bothering me and it’s irritating not to ba able to check back entries and see when this started. I know it was a problem during our vacation, but don’t remember if it happened before that.

Speaking of vacations, things have been happening and I need to write about them! We had a gorgeous 11-day cruise on a sailing ship in French Polynesia, to islands like Ranigora, Bora Bora, Tahiti and Moorea, and we have amazing photos I need to do a long post about that, including how wonderful the ship’s crew were (and how I wasn’t that imporessed is the booking office, on land). That might all go into the other more public blog (which has been suffering even more from attrition) but I will link it here.

On the way back I was able to do my Global Entry interview, so now when I travel I can go into the TSA Pre-Check line – yay! THis will be good becauswe we do have another flight this month – we’ll be traveling to California for a weekend to attend Ted’s grandfather’s 100th birthday party. (I enjoy his family, so am looking forward to this.)

Work was extremely busy for several weeks there but seems to be a little calmer now. My manager has moved on and as part of the resulting reorgs, they seem to want me to take a more senior role in the group now. We will see how this really materializes, though. (It’s a chain reaction, with every change having to depend on some other change happening.)

Meanwhile, knitting has been happening, and rowing – we went to the lake house both of the last two weekends. We might go again this weekend – when we were away for a month due to the Polynesia trip, all our blueberries withered. Deep watering has fixed that, but they’re not ripe yet and with the family trip coming up in a couple of weeks we don’t want to leave them for too long. Right after that we’ve having a knitting retreat, and I’d like to be able to have fresh blueberries to offer! If they won’t wither on the bush, we’ll have a bumper crop this year.
