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...

Homestead Simple and Apple Pie

I don't do this very often but today I made an entry at one of those "linky parties" Erika and Rowena's Homestead Simple;   I don't really know much about linky parties but do enjoy visiting them. 

I am a great fan of Homestead Simple.  I like the mix of subject matter and down-to-earth approach .  I am happy to see that more and more people are joining up with their linky parties and (I assume) visting the blog!

My entry there is an old one from 2011 - and it's a mixed bag, but the point of it was for the apple pie recipe, not the info about the family tree stuff or cutting the lawn stuff, LOL!  It occurred to me after the fact that I should have created a post here first with the recipe that I wanted to share, and THEN do the linky thing.  Well, duh Jan! 

Live and learn.  I will do it right the next time, I promise!  Meanwhile, I hope you will enjoy Homestead Simple and the linky party!
