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...

The Sensible Way To Arrange Wall Art - Duh!

After the last post, I had a brain storm while preparing supper and finishing up the laundry.  I took down the large bird print and traced it on newspaper, ditto the small framed bird print - times three.

Duh!  Should have tried this from the beginning, but it didn't occur to me until after I finished my previous post.  No more fruitless nail holes in the walls; no more laying out arrangements on the floor where you really don't get the full potential effect...

I took my cut-outs to my bedroom and taped them to the wall in a few different configurations -- more, perhaps, to follow.  This makes so much sense!  And I know it's crazy, but I'm liking putting all my current stuff on this one wall, and doing something else on the other wall next to the triple dresser:

  1. What a great idea! This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" things!
