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...

Jacket Fashions from Charlotte Russe

Website is having a sale now!!! Five dollars off orders of $30 or more online.  Tonight I scoped out these really cute fashion jackets.  They won't keep you warm in 30 below zero F, but for right now, they are spot on.  Best of all, the prices are great!  Yeah, these clothes probably won't last 10 years, but on the other hand, if you want today's looks now, it won't cost you an arm and a leg to get it and you can give them away a year from now and take a tax deduction for the donation if you itemize your deductions, darlings!  I would team these jackets with dress slacks or a skirt and dark hose or opaque tights. 

I think looks 1 and 3 could be worn under a heavier coat and stand on their own as an "in office" look.  Looks 2 and 4 are "outdoorsy" but possibly could be worn indoors - it would depend on how thick the material is.  In my office, which is always cold, that would be welcome!  Coat 5, especially would look great over dress slacks or a long black skirt...
