this week

Here is the final week of summer shows and while I am looking forward to the small break afforded me in September I am always sad to see the summer events end! I had probably a total of 70 or more lobster rolls… and I’m not kidding - those things are so delicious! Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year, though, so all I can envision are pumpkin and the taste of pumpkin in everything, cool fall nights and the leaves changing. It gets me so excited!

Birding has taken a small break over the summer - due to so little free time and more foliage providing more cover for our feathered friends - but I decided to share a few shots of these two. A Yellow-Rumped Warbler and a Royal Tern.

I can’t imagine this summer being any better! I’ve been so busy but also so enjoying this past couple of months! My favorite part thus far is being able to have my daughter join me for some of the library shows. Tonight, while saying goodnight, she told me she really loved the Drive-In. This was fantastic to hear because it is a tradition to visit the Wellfleet Drive-In - one that I am pleased to have my daughter join me.

We’re still scheduling for the Hulk themed Building Stories at the Kingston Library! It takes place on Aug 24th at 6:00. If you’re interested please call the Children’s Room - and here’s a link to their site right here!

I am always so thankful to get cards from the schools and children that I get to share my stories with. Even if it’s from the teachers or the children themselves - the card above is from a fantastic school in Groton that I love to visit and the card below the children made themselves.

It’s never expected and always appreciated to get cards like these - knowing that the schools regard the shows past how much the children enjoy them. I always give my 100% at shows and will continue to do so forever so it’s nice when I get a reminder about how much

I will say, last week I took advantage of this beautiful weather and brought my daughter with me to P-Town for my show last Friday. After the show we were able to go on a Whale Watch and we saw so many of these ocean mammals! One of the whales breached right out of the water and my daughter was amazed! When we arrived back home the bitter reality of school shopping was upon us - thank fully my daughter loves school and can’t wait for it to start up again.

I think this might be the best summer ever so far! I have been traveling all over Massachusetts telling my tales of Amy saving George from his rogue flying bicycle. I certainly think I’ve had the best crowds I’ve ever had at most of the libraries I’ve visited! This is from early July and the wonderful crowd at the Holmes Library, an easy favorite of mine to visit!

Between the howling laughter from the kids and the giggles from the adults in the back it’s always a pleasure to entertain the families of Halifax!

Even my son Antone was able to get into the action during the “Popsicle Song”. I think my favorite submission was the “trash” popsicle one of the children suggested. Gross humor is always quite funny to them!

I hope everyone out there is enjoying there hot days of summer and figuring out ways to stay cool! Plenty of time is left though - so make sure you fit in all of the events you want to, like eating ice cream, a boat ride, a beach day… and of course, a trip to see Big Ryan!
