Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails.
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil, worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
I trust in Thee.
--Ann Kimmel

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

A Quick Note

Yeah, right...

No, really! I will be brief, I promise.

Over the weekend I discovered that the new camera sucks the juice out of batteries quicker than Popeye swallows spinach, so today I dashed to town for a battery recharger and a supply of rechargeable batteries. Right now the first pair are still charging (about 6-7 hours per pair is what it takes) so I won't be posting much in the way of photos or adding new items to Etsy until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a rainy day kept us pretty well tied to the house, so I asked my son to come up with a new shop banner for MelmacParadise. I told him I wanted something that wasn't formal, but rather would let buyers know I gear the shop mostly to the kitsch and the offbeat.

Well, he did. He certainly did. So, for the time being, I have a bizarre new shop banner. Feel free to check it out.
