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...

I Want This Jacket!

I just saw it over at Vogue patterns:


It's by Koos van den Akker: V1277 Misses' Reversible Jacket
Advanced - meaning waaaayyyyyy out of my sewing abilities, looking at it makes me dizzy!  But I LOVE it.  The cut is fabulously figure-flattering and it looks so warm and cozy, and I LOVE the pattern combinations and the fact that it's totally reversible.  Wow. 

I'm on lunch right now at work - just had to blog about this, couldn't wait until I get home tonight to do it!
