Hi! How are you? Today felt like spring here! It was gorgeous. I love winter, but I can also appreciate why people look forward to this season. Now, it's probably a false alarm/there may be more winter yet, but soon enough, spring will reign. I can't wait until my spring bulbs and plants start arriving! … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: March 9, 2020

Holy hats; it's March already! How's it going? Are you starting to see signs of spring where you are? We are, I suppose. My town received almost three feet of snow Thurs/Fri, but today it's 45F and raining. That would be great and all if we didn't currently have about 8 small trails of water … Continue reading Mel’s Monday Musings: March 2, 2020

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.

Springtime is not Kind
Today is the first official day of spring. Blessed Alban Eilir (or Ostara, or Spring Equinox if you prefer). I've returned from my little hiatus; my mom and stepdad have gone home. While they were here, we lost an uncle on my father's side after a long battle with cancer (melanoma). I can't do this … Continue reading Springtime is not Kind
