Happy summertime to all blog readers,
I am reminded today, being the last day of August, that the “Summer of 2010” is quickly escaping like sand sifting through our fingertips or like footprints erasing at the shores edge. But we, who love summer so dearly, will hold on to every last moment sincerely and cherish each memory it holds.
We will treasure its charming beauty and bustling flare.
We will cherish its time of family, friends, children and frolic,
Filled with memories pressed like pages in our minds forever.
Memories of Baby showers and Sunday church hours,
Thanking God and thanking loved ones,
Who make all the memories so much more.
Flowers galore and Cotuit’s library house tour,
Boating, kayaking, swimming and more
Barefoot walks, informative talks along the beaches shores,
Seashell finds, more dipping times, ice cream stops, and
Lots of shops are some of our times.
Bicycling more bicycling in the new morning light,
Or simply just in afternoon delight,
Feeling the breeze anytime we please!
Writing, re-writing, Cape Cod Children’s Writer’s team,
Blogging and re-trying at children’s books themes with
Listening, learning, and critiquing regimes
All are part of the summer time things.
Meetings, workshops, conferences and more,
Special Sisterhood and new friends, much fun for sure,
Filled with laughter, giggles, dance and song,
Music, stars and peacefully sleeping all night long.
Commuting, more driving, good eats and BBQ’s,
Birthdays’ and Camelot, just to name a few.
Each Summertime day whether spent on my Cape Cod ocean shores, Martha’s Vineyard, NJ, Whitinsville, Newport, RI, Bedford or Meredith, NH were very special indeed. It was a time, a bright and shiny spot, like Camelot, when the shores expressed their most glorious splendor of sparkle, shimmer and shine, the cool waters, refreshed and revived me body and soul and the sun’s golden ray’s danced to the rhythm of love, romance, warmth and comfort.
I smile…I laugh… I thank each and every one of you for sharing your time and love with me in creating a lovely “Summer 2010”.
Bye, for now….jeannie Purpaleanie
