DawnHere's the back lawn at sunrise on an early September morning. This is the best time of year here with the tourists gone home (I know I know, I'm a "summer person"myself) though it means the Lobster Pound has closed for the season and the summer theater is dark now as well.   Birds are still singing (and cawing) early in the morning, and flowers are still blooming in the gardens, but somehow things are quieter, slower, as Summer winds down and Fall moves in.


And next week I will go back to real life and to a schedule that includes too much traveling, as always. One brief trip to Chicago, though, is to an event that celebrates (wrong word)..acknowledges...Banned Books week; many authors who have been banned will be there, each speaking/reading briefly. Among those I know will be Judy Blume and Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, so it will be good, as it always is, to be with colleagues.  And we will be there together for the first (September 26th) Obama-McCain debate. Judy and Phyllis are both passionate Obama supporters as I am  (I wonder whether it will come up during the Banned Books event that Sarah Palin tried (and failed) to have books removed from her town library).

I just discovered (after checking a small fact with an educator friend, who had to call upon some other experts and finally got back to me) that I wrote an error into the February Gooney Bird book that I'm currently working on, and now my task this week is to go back, remove it, and then smooth the narrative around it. A nuisance. But better to find out now, while the book is still being written, than much farther along.

In the midst of puttering with that today I also have to take the dog to the vet for a booster shot, and make an apple pie because I volunteered to take dessert to a dinner party at the home of friends (also summer residents who have stayed past Labor Day before they return to NYC) tonight.  

Tom the Exterminator just called to say he will be here Monday with his potions intended to ward off the Fall influx of mice as they retreat from the fields and stake out their winter dwellings. Time to invoke my annual rodent poem:

Welcome to you, little mouse!
Please come in my cozy house!
Want some goodies? Take your pick:
Cyanide, or arsenic!

The book is actually titled "The Geography of Bliss." I know because I'm reading it right now for my bookclub. Glad to be in such good company!

I've personally had such a fantastic time reading through the Lois Lowry's Blog. I've just read the rushessay.com review which has considerably assisted me in knowing about how good early morning sunshine is for the body. There are many benefits to it than one might think.

Vita Vea, Washington: A freakish athlete,NFL Jerseys Vea actually played as a 350-pound edge rusher at times two years ago due to the team's injuries at the position. He can stand up double-teams and attack ball carriers.NFL Cheap Sports Jerseys Being part of a rotation at the next level will help him stay fresh, maximizing his talents. Maurice Hurst, Michigan: A quick first step makes Hurst the most dangerous penetrator in this group.Adidas NHL Jersey He plays strong for his size (6-foot-1, 292 pounds), as well. He was diagnosed with a heart condition at the NFL Scouting Combine, Adidas NBA Swingman Jersey but was later cleared by doctors to participate in Michigan's pro day and was not asked to return for the combine medical recheck, which was a good sign. Da'Ron Payne, Alabama: Payne's disruptive play in the College Football Playoff gave him a boost heading into the draft process. Stitched NCAA Hockey Jersey He
demonstrated that quickness all season, though, and at the combine, too. CFL Jersey Teams seeking a nose tackle with quickness to challenge gaps on a consistent basis will look his
way early in the draft.Taven Bryan, Florida: Bryan was not the most productive player during his time at Florida,Flex Base Baseball Jersey especially in his first two years. However, his natural ability is evident, as is his motor. At 6-5, 291 pounds, Soccer Club Jersey Bryan might fit best as a five-technique. Harrison Phillips, Stanford: Phillips is a strong defender who's difficult to move.Women Jersey His agility and nose for the ball in traffic are exemplary; it's rare for a tackle to lead his team in tackles, as Phillips did last season with 103 stops, even if two-thirds of the tackles were assists.
