this week

I spent pretty much every moment I could outside this weekend. I watched my daughter and son play together which, due to their vast age difference, doesn’t happen very often. They were playing in the sandbox creating, and then destroying, sandcastles. It was a snapshot of their childhood that I consider myself very lucky to have caught. Moments like that are gone in a flash. I think this summer will be one of the best!

I will also spend my 39th birthday on Thursday doing what I love the most - traveling around and telling stories! Hopefully it will be beautiful and I can spend all day enjoying the weather, telling tales and then retreat to home for some cake. Sounds perfect to me!

I can only say this: I never blamed my mistakes on my own pet.  Of course, we also didn’t have a cat growing up so… can’t say for sure I wouldn’t have TRIED to blame them.

A few weeks ago I mentioned seeing a Pileated Woodpecker at the Science Center in Norwell.  I said I would post a pic - so here it is:


Also, if you click on the image it will bring you to the SSSC blog where they mention that the woodpecker has been spotted for a few years now - and that this was the third spotting this year!  Pretty exciting stuff for a birder like myself!

Hope all the Mothers out there enjoyed their day this past Sunday! As you can tell by the inactivity on this site I had have non-stop stories to tell! I was all over the map last week going from Walpole to Falmouth - then to Bridgewater and to Dartmouth! Like I said, I was all over the place! I did enjoy a bit of down time this weekend, mostly spent with my family as we enjoyed the beautiful weather we were having. Even more so, I was out birding almost every day and catching a peek at all the summer birds returning from their winter homes.

Now that I have a moment to spend in my office, here is a peek at what is happening this week:

this week

I am not sure how anything can top last week!  While telling stories in Norwell at the Science Center I spotted a pileated woodpecker - one of the largest woodpeckers has to offer!  I will post pics later, but I also saw Age of Ultron and thought it was incredible!  The whole family then took a trip to NJ to visit family and for me to have a chance to work at Zapp Comics for one of my best friends in the world during Free Comic Book Day.  If that weren’t enough I met Mike Mills of R.E.M. (Check pic of the week this week!) on the way home!  It was too much to handle!

But, it’s back to work now - and I have a few schools to visit this week!

I know the week just begun but I doubt anything else will top this - I just met Mike Mills at a rest stop in Conn!  Mike Mills was part of the amazingly talented band R.E.M. (they retired in 2012) a band that I have always been a huge fan of.  In fact, this past week I was at Zapp Comics in NJ and saw the R.E.M. figures that the Simpsons just released.  Out of all the coincidences in the world - Mike Mills came to the exact rest stop my family decided to eat lunch at!  I was amazed and humbled to meet a man whose songs I’ve idolized for SO many years!  He ever signed my Mike Mills figure as seen below:

What a way to start the week!
