Hiiii! How's it going? Can't complain here. Winter came early though -- 7-11" of snow expected by 9am tomorrow and I can believe it! My wind chimes are going crazy right now. (It was snowing enough that they canceled choir rehearsal tonight, and they don't do that for a few flurries around here. We're tough … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: November 11, 2019
La la la la la...you want me to what??
Ugh, this day. Here, have some photos.
Something feels wrong -- I don't know what it is, but something is off. Don't you hate that feeling? The world just seems to be spinning off-kilter somehow; there's a discordant note in the song somewhere. (There's a lot that's wrong if you look at politics and world issues, I know...it's easy to write it … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 30, 2019
Hi, y'all. 🙂 How's it going? It's been a busy week here, as we're down to the last days before school starts. I'm trying to work out the wake-everyone-up schedule to maximize sleep but minimize the hassle of getting three kids out the door. Two of mine will ride the same bus, even though they … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 2, 2019
Alright, let's talk about that craft show. I was stunned by how poorly I did this weekend. I didn't expect to sell out or anything, but I didn't even make my booth fee back! Yes, they say you have to have/spend money to make money, but we're not the kind of folks with money to … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 26, 2019
Hi, y'all! It's been a nice day here; hope you can say the same! Any day that starts out with time on (or in) the water is good by me. We went on a boat tour today, on the St. Lawrence River. It's gorgeous. (That's a castle through those trees!) And now I'm happily mid-chainmaille … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 12, 2019
Hi! Big changes are afoot for me this week. On Saturday, I had my annual eye exam. No major changes in my Rx (enough that I need new glasses, as per usual, but my nearsightedness is slightly less terrible -- apparently that can happen in your 30s. I'll take it!)...but I have to go back … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 29, 2019
Hi! How's your Monday been? I woke up to pleasant temperatures (thank you, rain!) and no headache for the first time in a few days, so that was a good start! I don't get headaches often, especially not recurrent-for-days ones, so when I do I'm a big baby about them. It's been a sleepy kind … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 22, 2019
Strawberries and neighbors and other random things
