Goodbye, Linden Avenue School…

Yesterday my son Daniel was part of the Linden Avenue School Second Grade Promotion.  There was song, poems, and fond farewells.  Everyone had a great time and excitement was in the air!  Today Daniel moved up to his 3rd grade class at Ridgewood Avenue Upper Elementary for the last day of the school year. Goodbye, Linden Avenue…you were our first school (and second home!). You will be fondly remembered.





Visions of Slip Stitches and Sailing Ships

I finished my Prism Socks and they’ll be just the thing to keep my feet warm when the snow falls.  It snowed a little here in Glen Ridge last Saturday, just enough to make me go dashing for the snowbrush for my truck. It cleared up in 15 minutes tops, so arming myself with a snow removal implement  seems to have warded off the white stuff (except for the white flurries cascading across my blog).

Here’s Prism – my November entry in Sock Knitters Anonymous on Ravelry. I used Louet Gems in teal for the main color and leftover Cherry Tree Hill for the accent color. This is a great way to use up those little balls of sock yarn that inevitably pile up in your stash bin!

The Glen Ridge Cub & Webelo Scouts had their first “Rain Gutter Regatta” on Monday night. I’m proud to say that my son Daniel came in 2nd in the Wolf Cub Division.  It was a blast to see all the kids blowing their catamarans down the PVC path with drinking straws and a lot of hot air! Daniel was just so excited and he missed getting 1st by a hair (or in this case, a puff of air).
