#RochesterLife 63: Woodchucks.
On a farm, they’re dangerous. If a tractor wheel goes into a hole, the tractor or wagon could tip and endanger the farmers. When I was a kid, my grandfather was on top of the hay wagon when it hit a hole. He fell about ten feet when it rolled over.
Here in my back yard, however, it’s fun to watch them twitch their little noses and nibble weeds while I drink my morning coffee. #nature #ruralliving

#RochesterLife 62: Raspberry Jam.
Made by my mom and sister with berries picked by my kids, niece, and nephew. (And this is only our share of the bounty!) #yummy #RuralLiving
Woods Hole Draw Bridge.
I was in Woods Hole today to do some early research for a new project. I’m just digging into this one, so I won’t be sharing any details, yet.
I also signed copies of #FlyingDeep at the @woodshole_ocean Science Discovery Center. They have plenty on hand, as does @eight_cousins_books if anyone is seeking signed copies. #STEM #STEAM
A little snippet from yesterday’s Old Time Fiddle Session at Brick (wood-fired pizza) in New Bedford, MA. Thanks to Jeff Angeley from @southcoastlessons for organizing. #livemusic #familyfriendly
Seeing my book on display will never get old.
And look, @skortch ... yours, too! #FlyingDeep #STEM
Here are some images from my program at the Joseph H. Plumb Memorial Library on Monday. We had a nice mix of familiar faces and new kiddos who attended. These first few pictures feature kids examining the 3-D printed model of the sphere that keeps people safe inside Alvin. Others show kids peeking out the Alvin view port or listening to me read and share insider details. #STEM #STEAM #KidLitWomen #Epic18

Gorgeous sky yesterday.
#RochesterLife 61: Cervelli Farm. I’m so happy every year when Cervelli Farm stand re-opens each May. Today’s purchases included local tomatoes, corn on the cob, and Great Hill Blue Cheese (made in the next town). #buylocal #nofarmsnofood #locavore
My “office” for a few hours today. Yes, I kayaked a little and floated a little, but I DID get some work done, too. I set-up my research notebook for a new project and read a bit of one of my resources. I didn’t get as much work done as I would have at home, but it’s been pretty busy around here and the break was nice. I’m home now and back to reading. #amwriting #amresearching
