Hi, y'all! What's on your mind tonight? Stuff is getting real with the craft show; it's this coming weekend! Setup is Friday afternoon, and then Saturday from 9-5 and Sunday from 9-3 it's "showtime." (Kind of a big deal for this introvert...I really hope I can be "on" for everyone. I love the stuff I … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 19, 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
Hey, y'all! Not a lot of cohesive thoughts here today, just random snippets. (Didn't sleep long enough or well; one of those things was my own fault.) A smattering: -Board games are good at riling even the most normally-harmonious family members (although Machi Koro is still much less divisive/enraging than Monopoly imx). -I'm going to … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 8, 2019
Ahh, summer. 🙂
Green isn't my favorite color...

I burned the back of my neck walking to pick up my youngest kiddo from school today (I had long hair for most of the past decade and although it's been shorter for almost two years now, apparently I still forget to sunscreen back there until the first … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: April 22, 2019

Partisanship doesn't regulate friendship very often here. (Most people keep their politics … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: March 4, 2019
We are natural, but we've forgotten.
Hello, dear ones! Here we are in February! How have you fared over the past week? I'll have something more profound to say next week (we're closing in on a date with great personal meaning), but today is another "simple pleasures" kind of day. It was an unusually warm day here, for February (50F!). We've … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: February 4, 2019
This past week or so, I've been getting acquainted with a whole new level of cold weather. It was rare to even go below freezing in TX -- same for eastern NC where I grew up. But here in NNY? Yeahhh-- we've been below zero quite a few times here, and this weekend had seriously … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: January 21, 2019
