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...

What is it your town can do really well...

....hmmmm, we can sew!  Yes, we can sew...

OH MY GODDESS!  A little while ago to catch up, I visited one of my favorite sewing blogs (yes, I can sew, no, I'm not very good at it, and yes, I love it anyway, just like I play chess :)   10,000 Hours of Sewing.  I love Victoria!  Please check out her blog.  Meanwhile, I hope you will enjoy this film clip from "The Three Amigos", aptly entitled "We Can Sew!!

  2. Jan,

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend!!
    I will try to take a better picture of the clock on the wall in the Dining Room for you and add it to my next post on all the Dining Room decorations which will be posted tomorrow... Joe bought it for me in J.C.Penney a few years ago....

    Minerva reminds me of the family in Meet Me in St. Louis going to church at Easter..... I do have fun playing with dressing her up....

    I am very pleased with the New Pope. He does seem like such a humble and inspirational man and that is what this world needs whether you are Catholic or not.....

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for always having such nice things to say.... Your comments always make my day and i better be careful that I don't get a big head!! LOL!!

    Have a great Sunday... We are predicted to get 4 inches of snow tomorrow!! UGH!!!

    Hugs,
    Deb
