Let's play catch-up!
February's poetry continues.
Hi! It's August 24th! In two months, I'll be 38. Two months after that is Xmas Eve, for those who celebrate religiously and/or secularly. And a week after THAT, 2020 will be ending! I don't know many people who will be sorry to see it go, although I can't pretend it hasn't had some amazing … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 24, 2020
Been a rough couple of days around here; I think *gestures expansively * all of this is just getting to me a bit. All good though -- we're almost to ALBUM RELEASE DAY for the charity EP and I can't wait! (You can still pre-order here.) Other than that, there's not a lot going on … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 17, 2020
Hi, Saturday Songwriters, Twitter pals, and other folks wandering by! How are y'all tonight? (Well, it's night here; it's the next day for some of you, I know...good morning/day to y'all!)

Hi, y'all! Did you have a good weekend? We did; yesterday we celebrated my oldest child's FIFTEENTH birthday!! Where does the time go?? Other news: I'm working on getting my Etsy shop up and running again after spending my mask-making time with it in Vacation Mode; I want to list my pendants and chainmaille bracelets. … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: June 15, 2020
I've been keeping a Covid-19 diary (not particularly faithfully; slightly less often than once per week at this point) with stats and my impressions, etc. just in case it has historical value/interest someday. The entries are usually hurried, more of an afterthought, but life is kind of like that these days, scattered and demanding, so … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: June 8, 2020
(Not going to address The Day, since I have an international readership, but if you're in the USA and offended that I didn't, pretend I did. :-p) Hi! How's it going, y'all? The weather's heating up here, so we've become popsicle fanatics again (no air conditioning in our creaky old-but-wonderful house). Later in the week … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: May 25, 2020
