Scattered Saturday it is! For one reason, I can type this in quickly (I hope) and get back to the relaxing portion of the day. Just a note of background: today is supposed to be a major winter storm. The weather people have been talking about it for days now. Right now is the part of the day we are supposed to be hunkered down, waiting till it is time to go out and do some major shoveling tomorrow. I suppose I can make a blog post while I hunker, but I would rather be watching a movie or true crime television. On with the blog post, so I can get back to it!
We got up early today, having gone to bed early last night. I felt rather ill-used to have a headache first thing in the morning. I hadn’t even had a Friday night libation! I wondered if too much sleep was to blame. YES, I slept a lot on Friday. I had a migraine, remember? At least, regular readers will remember. For sporadic tuners-in who missed yesterday’s lame post, I had a migraine yesterday. I sought exercise as a cure: first I drank two large glasses of Gatorade, then I ran in place on the mini-tramp. The headache wasn’t gone, but I could live with it.
After my usual call to Mom and Dad, I wrote a few post cards. I was puttering around getting my act together when Steven went out to brush off the cars. We feared the winter storm had started early, but it was merely a dusting overnight. I got outside in time to help with the brushing, then I was off to Ilion.
My mission in Ilion was to get my work shoes for the year from Melfe’s. I will no doubt write a blog post about that; I usually do. My plan after that was to go to Moose River Coffee for a cup of the BEST coffee. I could sit and write while I drank it. Alas, they were not open. A sign in the door said they were doing a tasting at Little Falls Food Co-op. Well, I love Little Falls Food Co-op but was not into driving to Little Falls.
As I pulled into the parking lot for Ilion Wine and Spirits, I remembered Honey Brook Hobbies. Maybe they had coffee! Alas (again), they did not. I bought a few cookies, though, because they looked really good (they were; I ate one right away). Then I went to the liquor store and got a couple of bottles.
Back home I thought I was in for the day. After all, it was already snowing. However, my friend Kim needed to go to the liquor store and get something to see her through the storm. Naturally I went with her to Valley Wine and Liquor in Herkimer. After all, I still had my bra on (do NOT say TMI!) (you know who you are). We tasted some wine and purchased some as well (oh, don’t shake your head or your finger at me!) (or even your booty, although that would be less of a problem) (it’s not like I’m going to drink it all TONIGHT!).
I cooked a pretty good dinner (not early enough to call it supper) while we looked at a Dateline I had DVR’d a while ago (judging from the taped commercials). Now it is over so I must find something else to watch. I see I am over 500 words, which I call more than respectable. If you are in the path of the storm, I hope you are hunkered down. For all others, Happy Saturday!
