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!) The world's gone crazy, maybe. So tell me three good things! They can be large or small or anywhere in between. 🙂 I'll go … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: August 10, 2020
What "momversations" look like these days w/my mom-friends...
One thing I know is this: if you get a chance to leap for a brass ring, even if you're absolutely certain that everyone else is in a better position to make the jump and has longer legs than you do besides, take the leap anyway.

Hey there! How are you? Surviving Monday? It was almost unseasonably warm here today, at 45F! As nice as it was to walk outside without a coat, I won't mind when winter returns Wednesday night or so, and am hoping we get every bit of the snow they're predicting on Thursday and then some. I've … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: February 24, 2020
