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
Hey, friends! How are y'all tonight? I hope your Monday hasn't felt too "Monday"-ish. I guess the biggest "news" here is that I've decided to release my next poetry collection in Esperanto first, then English (maybe both simultaneously, but I doubt I'm up for that!). The poems weren't composed in Esperanto though (I'm not quite … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: May 18, 2020
Hi! How's it going in your corner of the world? It's been a blustery, wet day here, with wind howling around the house and trying to open, rattle, or tip over anything it can, spattering rain almost angrily against windows and walls, roof and concrete. But I...am oddly content right now. (I got a Thing … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: April 13, 2020

Now, it's probably a false alarm/there may be more winter yet, but soon enough, spring will reign.

That would be great and all if we didn't currently have about 8 small trails of water … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: March 2, 2020
Well, that didn't go as planned, but what ever does?
We're almost through the first week of 2020!
Hi, y'all! What a whirlwind of a week it's been. We had our next-to-last choir rehearsal tonight for "Messiah." We're sounding pretty decent for the size of the choir! I can't wait to rehearse in the concert space; acoustics are always different. It'll be a treat to hear the orchestra, too! (And I'm only mildly … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: December 9, 2019
Shows and snows and holy cats, it's December!
Hi! (Monday again, already??) How are you? I'm still waiting for a weekend; I had craft shows back-to-back this weekend so I hustled the entire way through. I purposely did not schedule one for this coming weekend so I could actually have a break (though I will work both days to some extent; most artists … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: November 18, 2019
