Good morning, Everyone. It is a cool beginning to this mid-November day on the south shore of Long Island. The yard retains its colors since we have not had a frost yet. Pour your morning brew. Let’s catch up.
If we were having coffee together, I would continue on the weather theme. Matt and I attempted one more jaunt to Davis Park on Fire Island with the motorboat. The boat ran great all season but on that balmy autumn day, the outboard sputtered and alarms blared. We limped back home.Matt diagnosed electrical problems. He’ll address it in the spring. Now that it is nearly Thanksgiving, he examined the trailer and found a multitude of structural issues, so he is now deep in a project.
We made it to the beach on my sisters and brother-in-law’s boat. It was warm enough to sit on the shore and fish. I attempted a polar bear plunge and, although chilly, the undertow kept me from getting too deep. Venturing to the beach in the middle of November is a treat but, let’s face it, our home planet is too warm and there are and will be consequences. We need to pay attention and take action.
If we were having coffee together, I would list my up coming podcast interviews:
I was invited to the Virtual Moonbeam Children’s Book Award where cutout Lily and I Zoomed in for the celebrations.
If we were having coffee together, I would announce that my LIVE Book Signing event at the local Cool Beans Coffee Shoppe in West Sayville was a grand success. Dear friends and my wonderful family came to wish me well and buy books. My publisher, Stephanie Larkin of Red Penguin Books, joined the celebration. I was so happy to meet the cover illustrator, Penny Weber. My talented daughter, Sara Antoinette Martin designed the easel. Two local papers took pictures, and the young men behind the coffee and bake goods counter worked non-stop. Thank you to My Everyone, who are my greatest cheerleaders.
That’s it, Everyone. Thank yous go out to Natalie the Explorer who keeps the Weekend Coffee Share percolating each week.
Have a good week. Make it FUNTASTIC!
Enjoy ❤️. Like 👍. Share 😊.
