What "momversations" look like these days w/my mom-friends...
I wasn't planning on it, but I'm going to be dragging out my sewing machine (Jolene, my modern gal, although I may see about going antique for part of this), dusting out her innards, and putting her to work again on masks. More. Masks. I've already made over 800 of them. Some of these will … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 20, 2020
Happy Pride Month -- and...
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
#BLM #BLACKLIVESMATTER #JUSTICEFORGEORGEFLOYD Black lives matter. The job of the police force is -- or should be -- to protect and serve the citizenry, the banner of which absolutely always must include every citizen of color. Good police officers de-escalate confrontation. They are willing to put their own lives on the line rather than cross … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: June 1, 2020
I don't really have it today...I thought I was going to write something witty, but then something happened that bumped my brain right out of creative mode. I know better than to try to force it right now, so I'll save that thought for another day. I did end up writing a bit on Facebook … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: May 11, 2020
(I'm NOT going to say it. I hate Star Wars.) Hi! How's it going? No, really, how are you? These days are not easy. Doing alright over here; lots of mask-making and gardening. I applied to be a contact tracer for my state. It seems like a decent job (dunno what they pay yet) and … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: May 4, 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
Hi! It is/was Monday, right? 😉 How are you? (How you are, no matter what form that takes today, is always OK to be/feel. I know sometimes it seems like there's an expected way-to-be or how to feel, but we're not all the same person; we don't all process life and various events the same … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: April 6, 2020
