Hola!

Today is the Super Duper Blue Red Full Eclipse Partial Eclipse Moon, depending on where you may be viewing from.

Three years ago this day was my last day of working and I retired after 46 years of full-time work. I've enjoyed every single moment of my retirement since then - three years and hoping for twenty more, we'll see how things go...

February and March can be cruel months in southeastern Wisconsin where I live. January itself was nutso here weather-wise, with two separate thaws. I don't ever remember getting two January thaws before, and many years none happened at all.

Before I know it I'll be headed to Las Vegas to visit my friends and celebrate some sunshine and warm weather, and see a show (I always try to squeeze one in). Meanwhile, I am continuing, slowly, to make this smaller retirement ranch into a home that makes me smile in every room. I still have lots to do, including major painting projects. I keep putting them off. Seems at 66 I'm not so keen on painting as I was at 36. Gee, I wonder why...

Eco-Fashion, Sustainable Fashion, Animal-Humane Fashion

I haven't vetted any of these websites other than checking out Vaute Couture the other day (see post below), but here is a list of brands with online presence that promise to be eco-friendly, sustainable and animal humane

Here is the home page for Eco Fashion World

Interestingly enough, this evening when I got home I discovered in the mail a catalog from sonsi.com.  Sonsi doens't promise to be eco-friendly, sustainable or animal-humane but while looking through it I did find a plaid pea coat from Lane Bryant that I fell in love with - and - NO WOOL!


Cotton/polyester/acrylic blend, $169.95.  Now, if it had been a red plaid, I would have bought it...
