Once again I pause in my gyrations to make a Scattered Saturday post. Steven and I are waiting for some people to come over tonight. It is a Thanks for the Mayhem party for people who participated in our murder mysteries in the past couple of years. Oh dear, I hope I did not neglect to invite somebody who reads my blog. I do not have the most reliable memory, and I have done quite a few murder mysteries. Anyways, I have to have another party, because a lot of people can’t make it tonight.
I began my morning earlier than expected on a Saturday, but that was OK, because I had gone to bed earlier with a stomach ache on Friday (perhaps you read my blog post about it). My stomach felt better, so I had some coffee and listened to the rain fall. I do not usually go running in the rain. And right after the rain, there a lot of puddles I do not necessarily enjoy running through. However, when the rain stopped, I ran anyways and just did not worry about the puddles. I wore an older pair of running shoes.
Back home, I wrote a few post cards. I was delighted to have some new ones to send. My Mom and Dad went on a bus trip with their church and picked me up a bunch. I rarely travel myself, but I am fortunate to have family and friends that do. By now it was raining again, making a walk to the post office ineligible. That was all right, though, because Steven and I had several errands to run.
After a stop by the post office, we went to Cash for Cans on South Washington Street in Herkimer, NY (where we live, in case you didn’t know) and redeemed a LOT of cans and bottles. Then we went to AmeriCU Credit Union to deposit a check (we like credit unions), then to Hannaford for groceries and party munchies. Back home, we cleaned industriously, although my coffee table is still quite the mess. Steven nicely said we would call it a Work in Progress and it could be a topic of conversation. I do like to entertain my guests.
Around 11:30 we went to Route 51 Beer Belly Bob’s Discount Beverage Center in Ilion, to taste and purchase beer. Brown’s Brewing Company of Troy, NY was there. We had a great time and bought some yummy beer. I want to do a whole blog post about it. I also plan to return to Beer Belly Bob’s when Brown’s is back sometime. Oh, as well as returning when I run out of the beer I bought. Beer Belly Bob’s is where I get my beer!
Since we also drink wine, we made a quick stop at Ilion Wine and Spirits for a bottle of Barefoot Pinot Noir. I had a craving for some Barefoot Pinot Noir. I will be delighted to open it in a few hours (oh, do I have to wait a few hours? Maybe I can start sipping a little early).
Wow, I did a lot. I haven’t even talked about the fixing, mixing, and chopping I have done so far. I will just mention that I enjoyed a cup of iced coffee flavored with just a touch of Mohawk Valley Fire Moonshine from DikinDurt Distillery of Herkimer. Just to give another shout-out.
So I think this has been a pretty good Scattered Saturday post (or do I flatter myself?). Now I’ve got to get back to finishing my fixings. I do love to entertain. Happy Saturday, everyone.
