January 31, 2018:


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...

New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs

I've been receiving email updates from Vogue about the goings-on in NYC, along with links and some photos.  I looked through 49 of 56 photos and saw very little that I thought was commercially marketable.  Without the ridiculous "Cat In The Hat" hats and gauche scarves, and those shoes - with socks? - I HATE the look - there were some possibilities.  Does a professional woman - does any woman - really want to look like a 5 year old from the 1950s?  Who are these designers designing for? 

If you would like to see more upscale bag lady fashions from Marc Jacobs, here's the link to the slide show at Vogue.
