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...

Ooooh, I Like It, I Like It...

More things I want (and cannot afford):
Jones of New York kimono sleeve cowl-neck cableknit sweater
$129 (currently less 15%) at Macy's.  Love everything about this sweater.
I love this sophisticated look. Black and white are
always chic.  I'm not into leggings, though.  I'm
still trying to find a pair of fashion boots I can
wear with my new sweater dress and tights!

Kensi color block sweater $88 at Macy's.
Love the detailing and the texture.

I've been shopping online for wide-width fashion boots - the kind to wear with knee-length skirts, sweater dresses, etc.  I've found about five pair at One Stop Plus - may pull the trigger on a purchase or two later today, depends on how the Packers game and the Brewer game go!  If they're winning and I'm happy, I will buy buy buy...

I also decided I want a bright red winter coat - better yet, a coat with a zip-out lining I could wear three seasons.  I need something that's a plus size (like 16W) but cut for a femme under 5'4" or a more generous "petite" cut like LL Bean features -- except they didn't have any red coats that I liked, boo hoo.
