Friday Frolic

Share Button

It’s Friday.  I’m home.  It’s warm (my car told me it was 70 just a bit ago).  I’m happy.

Lots to catch up on and a busy weekend ahead.  I came home from Cleveland earlier today and the taping of the third season of Knitting Daily TV.  More on that this weekend.  Because there are a couple of things more important at the moment.  First, is this:

Those are buds (I know, I’m sure you could’ve figured that out for yourselves).  Not just any buds mind you.  Those are buds on a plant in my yard!  Folks, I think we’re going to make it!  You have no idea the joy this brings me.

Next, there is a SUPER cool event happening this weekend in Northampton.  If you live in the area and/or are looking for something fun to do with the family tomorrow, I’ve got the plan for you!  Tomorrow is the first ever Meltdow – The River’s (as in WRSI 93.9) Family Music and Book Bash at JFK Middle School in Northampton (less than 10 mins from WEBS by the way).  From 10-4 there will be children’s musicians performing, authors doing book readings and lots of other fun things.  A certain little bead shop and a particular yarn store I’m familiar with will also be on hand :)  WEBS Beads will offering kids a chance to make a beaded project (they are bringing several options to accomodate boys/girls and a range of ages up to teens) and WEBS Yarn will be helping kids make felted balls out of wool and stringing them into a necklace!  There will also be food vendors and our favorite radio station here in the Valley, WRSI will be there!

The event is free (although I’m not sure that the food is) and it runs from 10-4pm.  I’ll be there for a bit in the morning and again later in the afternoon – tomorrow is little league skills assessment for the boys so I’m going to be zipping up and down the Valley most of the day :)

Also, if you are looking for a camp option for your kids this summer, we’ll have information regarding our Kid’s Fiber Camp!

Happy Spring!

    Not just any random children's musicians–Katryna & Nerissa Nields! With a full band! The first full-band children's show! Wish I could be there. It would be nice to see a casual pic of WEBS with a Nields CD in the background like there's a pic of Katryna with a WEBS bag in the background.

    Oh my goodness, I must run to my yard RIGHT NOW to see if I have any buds — hooray for Spring!!

    Always nice to see new growth at this time of year. And the robins are back! And it's still light out when I come home from work. Ahh, spring.

    Yay, buds!! I have an *inkling* of just how much this means to you, Kathy, to see signs that the Cold is passing away.
    I hope your guys get onto teams they'll enjoy playing with. Happy spring to you, too!
