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...

180 Degree Turn!

Hola!

I've decided to change the focus of this blog to include decorating and also my quest to research my family tree as well as this curse, or blessing, or whatever the hell it is, the re-awakening of an interest in looking stylish, too.  And being bitchy about it all.

I don't even know where to begin but begin I shall - later on.  Right now I'm watching "Who Do You Think You Are" and after that I'll be watching "Grimm" and after that I'll be entirely rearranging my bedroom :)  I shall try to remember to take "before" and "after" photos!

But first and foremost, I'm starving and I've got a "diet" (gasp!  I said a bad word!) frozen entree in the microwave and it just beeped at me.

Later, darlings!

P.S.  New template being used. That is a photo of my house, Maison Newton, taken in I think April, 2011.
