So yesterday I thought I was coming down with something and today I am pretty sure I am. It would not be such a big deal if I could keep from being such a colossal baby about these things. Or if I could just quietly take a day off from posting. But, as they say, I gotta be me. However, instead of whining for 200 or so words about how crappy I feel, how about I give a brief overview of Steven’s and my Monday morning adventures.
We began by fueling up at Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner in Herkimer, NY. Then we headed for the big city of Utica. I drove, as I had slightly more of an idea where we were headed. That is, I had been there. I had not driven there. However, after a wrong direction and only one turn around, we got to the So Sweet Candy Cafe on the corner of Columbia and Varick streets. Yay!
After that we had wanted to check out Adirondack Distillery, which is handily located right across the street. The message on their answering machine said they were open Monday through Friday. This Monday, they were not. Rats! We walked down Varick Street, just because we were there, then back to the car and headed on. The Other Side Gallery was also closed. I had not even checked their Facebook page, so I suppose that served me right.
We found Off-Center Records & Collectibles with very little problem. A parking spot presented a little more problem, but we got one not too far away. After a fun interlude there, we checked out New York Connection, which I had never heard of but noticed a couple of doors down. Those are both stores I mean to write more about.
On our way home, we stopped at Juliani’s Produce and Greenhouse in Schuyler. I got and immediately ate a chocolate half-moon cookie. We also got fixings for a salad, which I later made (I believe I mentioned it in yesterday’s post).
We enjoyed our little jaunt very much, although I was ready to get home and relax. I am ready to relax now. I guess it is Tired Tuesday after all.
