It is Saturday morning, and I am flustered. Today is the date of my (wait for it) Halloweddinganniversaweenary Party. I have to shop! I have to cook! I have to finish cleaning! I have to figure out my costume! I HAVE TO MAKE MY BLOG POST!!!
Today is going to be an all-day event, with out of town friends arriving and much fun planned. I really wanted to make my blog post later, since the aforementioned shopping may take me to various Mohawk Valley spots. However, later I might be visiting with friends. I remember trying to type in a blog post on the deck with two friends and Steve present. I felt I was missing all the jokes then. What will it be like later today?
So I guess this is kind of a pre-Scattered Saturday post. Perhaps in typing out my plans I can consolidate exactly what I intend to do and I will end up by feeling less flustered. But I’m not counting on it. For heavens’ sake, Cindy, it’s a blog, not a miracle!
I need a few more veggies for my veggie tray, so I intend to stop by T & J’s Fruits and Vegetables in Herkimer, NY. Just as a side note, I was greviously disappointed when I learned that crudites were nothing more than chopped up raw vegetables. To this day, I refuse to say I am serving my guests crudites. I have a veggie tray.
A fall favorite I felt I must have is apple cider. I intend to go to Parker’s Cider Mill in Ilion for that. I may check out the Farmer’s Market while I’m there. I have not been to the Ilion Farmer’s Market at Clapsaddle Farm on Otsego Street (just to sneak in the address in case anybody needed it) all summer. I used to go with Tabby, my late beloved schnoodle. She loved it there. I felt a little too sad to go without her but always knew I would go sooner or later.
OK, I guess those were the only two real local places I had thought to visit. I also might go to the dollar store for paper plates and the grocery store for stuff not available at T & J’s or the Farmer’s Market, but those places don’t have the Mohawk Valley cachet I crave.
On the brighter side, I’m over 350 words. That’s pretty respectable for a flustered kind of post. And I don’t think I did a whole lot of whining. Not an excessive amount. If you think this was an excessive amount, well, I just might whine about that too. I’ll save it for Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
