Retirement is a week filled with Saturdays and Sundays interrupted only occasionally by a holiday.

Wearing of the Green's already St. Patrick's Day; in a few days, it will be Spring. Yep, time really does fly by.

Today is also "Library Ladies Who Do Lunch" Day. We missed our lunch in February so we'll have lots to catch up on. I've been searching through my closet this morning trying to find something that's green. I originally planned on wearing a shirt I have but it's long sleeved and it's supposed to be close to 80 degrees today. I am wearing my green-framed glasses today (I nearly forgot I had them) so I guess that will save me from the traditional pinch.

Last night I played computer tech on the phone most of the evening. First I had to help my sister who was having trouble downloading songs from the iTunes website. Now I know most computer geeks don't read manuals and help screens but I'm a big believer in researching when help is needed. Sure enough, I came across a solution to the problem when a I read a message board reply which came up when I was Googling. Then I tried to help a friend with her computer problems when an attachment I had sent her wouldn't display. In turns out, she never set-up her Word program when it was loaded so she has to find that long ID key number from the original box to start the process.

If you noticed the countdown timer on the sidebar, we are getting closer and closer to our Baltic cruise. On Saturday, we met with the couple we're traveling with to do an initial selection of the excursions we want to do in the various port cities. Now we're trying to arrange a meeting with our friend who will be going with us so we can make the final decisions and purchase the excursions on the cruiseline website. Ka-ching, ka-ching...

Hope everyone has a happy and pinch-free St. Patrick's Day!

I hope you find the perfect outfit for your lunch sounds like a very fun thing to do.

and I'm so glad you were able to find the help you needed...computers can be so tricky.

Happy St Patty's day!

If I had known you were in such a helpful mood, I would have looked for something to call you for help with.

I read the blog about you being a dolt. Not so cousin - Uncle Bill thought you were brilliant.

Hope you had a great "Library Ladies Who Do Lunch" Day and that you and the other ladies had a good time catching up!

I'm sure that cruise will be here before you know it!
