Hi. I'm Melodee (Mel to my family and my oldest friends); Wife, Mom, Grandma
I'm a Photographer, Artist, and Creator-of-stuff-that-I-think-is-cool. I like to fix my computer (total Mac diehard from the beginning) making me a total geek. I'm a tad (HA!) on the ADD side and somewhat (HA! again) domestically challenged. Sometimes it's hard to tell where the messes end and the projects begin. I write when I'm able to carve time out for myself.
I LOVE decorating my house when the mood strikes me, making my house look homey and changing my furniture around a lot. My husband thinks I do it to maim him because sometimes he works nights and comes home in the dark and may, perhaps, trip on things I've moved while he was gone. I swear, it's not on purpose. I get bored easily with things staying the same.
I treasure moments with my grandchildren sitting in my lap while I rock them or read to them, the spark I feel when something I see begs me to photograph it, the feeling I get when I know a photo I took is just right, my husband grabbing at me because he thinks I'm still hot (even though I'm at least 20 pounds overweight). I love to watch my dad watch over my mom, knowing how he's giving back to her everything she's given to the whole family over the last almost 60 years. I enjoy being with my four brothers and sisters and all of our families, laughing until we cry, and watching my three daughters laugh together because I know that they really do love each other.
I started this blog as an outlet for writing. When I can do it, it's still that, but it's also a place for me to let the world know how we're doing. I'd also like it to be more of a place where I can upload old graphics that I've scanned from the plethora of old books I have and make those available to others.
When I have time . . .
