Yes, I am making my Scattered Saturday post on Sunday morning. You may judge me, and I will neither protest nor defend myself. Never mind that, on with the post.
I was missing a Girl’s Day in the Finger Lakes with my sisters and Mom, because Monday is the deadline for Mohawk Valley Living magazine, and once again, I am behind the eight ball (that is a cliche for “I don’t have my act together,” but I thought I would sound cool by referencing billiards) (go ahead and tell me pool and billiards are not the same thing; I deserve it for using a cliche to try to be cool). Where was I? Ah yes, looking for something to write about. I feel a little uncomfortable admitting I write these things so close to the last minute, but that behavior used to get me all A’s when I wrote papers in school. Why would I mess with success? Or how can I fight nature? But I digress.
Steven and I drove to Little Falls, NY, one of my favorite places, in search of a distinctive, fun local business I have not written about. Unfortunately, I have written about a lot of them. We parked on Main Street and took a slow walk down it. It was a lovely day for a walk, at least. We stopped into Designs by Shelly, a flower and gift shop.
I sadly noted a couple of places no longer in business, giving Little Falls’ Main Street something in common with Herkimer’s. I would have liked to stop into Meeples Mug House, even though I already wrote about them, but they were not open yet.
We did stop into White Rose Bakery, which I have written about, and had a cup of coffee and a treat. Yum! We considered continuing down to Paca Gardens or Fall Hill Bead and Gems, both of which I had written about, but decided against it. We headed back to Herkimer, in search of other adventures. Did we find any? That will have to await future posts.
