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!
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
Hi! How goes it? October continues to chug onward at max velocity, or so it seems to me. How is it already Monday again??

Hi! How's the week starting off for you? Anything interesting going on? It's been a bit quiet here thus far, and I don't mind a bit. I have to file my first quarterly tax return by Friday, so am planning on doing that tomorrow. Fun! :-p I made entirely too much inventory for the craft … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: September 16, 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
What a beautiful day it's been! Not too terribly hot (warm, certainly; the fans are blowing all through the house right now) -- I don't like the days when I stay covered with a thin sheen of sweat, especially at night when I'm trying to sleep. I've been crafting in my spare time, mostly, and … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: July 15, 2019
What are you up to these days, Mel? You sure aren't writing much. Au contraire, mes amis...I have so many projects (writing and otherwise) in the works right now that I'm finding it difficult to post as often as I'd like to for this blog. Works-in-progress at this time (not a complete list): -My second … Continue reading These Days
