Just time to make a Scattered Saturday post before I am off on more adventures! I slept in till a leisurely 6:30 a.m. and had an equally leisurely morning. My one bit of ambition was to write a few post cards and walk to the post office and mail them. As usual, I walked a long way home to get more exercise. It was a nice walk, and I considered making a Pedestrian Post to get my blog done earlier in the day. Unfortunately, I had waited too long for the walk and did not have time.
Steven’s and my good friend, Tracy, arrived around Steven’s lunch time. After I got him back to work (I dropped him off, because we intend to pick him up later), Tracy and I visited for a while then took off on some Mohawk Valley Adventures!
We started at Valley Wine and Liquor’s, for a tasting of wines from Thousand Islands Winery, which incidentally, is near where Tracy lives. We had a nice chat with the young man pouring as well as sipping a little wine. I was delighted to hear that the liquor store will begin carrying my favorite Thousand Island wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, next week. I was also interested to hear the winery is coming out with a dry red blend soon. I’ll be looking for that!
Next, Tracy and I went to Little Falls, where we made several stops: Prima Donna’s Boutique, Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts, Rochette, Little Falls Antique Center, and Huckleberry Letterpress. We had lots of nice chats and saw lots of nice merchandise. I found myself mysteriously not in a mood to buy anything, but Tracy made a few purchases.
Back in Herkimer, we were feeling peckish so went to PK’s Pub, where we both had yummy salads. Tracy had a slice of homemade Peanut Butter Pie for dessert, but I managed to behave myself. For now. No promises for later.
Keeping one eye on the time and the other on my word count, I think I must end this post now. We have further adventures to enjoy! I hope everybody’s Saturday is going as well.
