In lieu of my usual Monstrous Monday, I thought I would make the Scattered Saturday post I did not make on Saturday. We did a few things before we tasted wine (that is what I made my blog post about on Saturday, in case you did not tune in) and, anyways, I don’t have any new monster pictures (note to self: find some new monster pictures).
It was quite cold in the morning, so I opted not to run outdoors. After considering going to the Mohawk YMCA when it opened at eight, I decided to run in place on the mini-tramp. I watched a Snapped On Demand while I did (regular readers may recall I also did that on Sunday. That may be my weekend thing for the winter). After a shower and calling my Mom and Dad (I have called them on Saturday morning for many years now), I wrote a few post cards to my regular people. Steven and I spent a good amount of time discussing our plans for the day but it took a while to come to any conclusions.
Steven wanted to get his beard trimmed and decided to try Custom Cutz in Herkimer (where we live). They took him as a walk-in, although we had to wait a few minutes. I used the time to make a few notes on the murder mystery I am writing for Morning Star Methodist Church in April (preview of coming attractions). We were also amused by two little boys getting hair cuts. The first sat very still with a solemn look on his face. The second seemed a little more ticklish. He kept scrunching up his face and trying to brush off little pieces of hair. I can certainly identify with that!
When we left the barber shop, I suggested we stop into Pete’s Tavern for a beer. After all, it was after noon and Pete’s is only a couple doors down from Custom Cutz. We enjoyed a draft. I did a scratch off lottery ticket but did not win anything. We only stayed for one, because we were headed for the wine tasting at Valley Wine and Liquor, which I wrote about on Saturday. I guess I already mentioned that. What do you want from me on a Monday?
