It is the moment of my Saturday when I pause in my gyrations for a Scattered Saturday post before returning to the bra off, sweats on, wine drinking, TV-watching, husband hanging out with portion of my evening. And I have scattered it pretty good today!
I did not leave the house till shortly after 10 a.m., when Steven headed out to work. I went to a rummage sale at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Ilion, NY. It was $1 for three bags day. Woo-hoo! I only got two bags worth of stuff but felt I had gotten way more than $1 worth of goods. Back home, I wrote one more post card (I had written four earlier) and walked to the post office. I took the long way home, making for a half hour walk. Remember, if you are too busy to exercise, you are too busy!
After contacting my friend, Kim, via Facebook, and making plans for her to come over, I spent almost a half hour frantically cleaning my living room and bathroom. There is nothing like somebody coming over to motivate one for housework. Did I make much progress? Well, let’s just say that, luckily, Kim is not one to judge. It was about 12:30 when she came over, which we deemed a good time for a mimosa. For one reason, I had a bottle of Prosecco which I purchased yesterday when we went to the tasting at Valley Wine and Liquor.
Our first stop was at an estate sale I had noticed while on my walk. The main thing I like about estate sales is walking through somebody’s house. This was a really nice house! Other than that, I find a lot of the stuff is priced higher than I want to spend and some of it is downright depressing. For example, family photos. Didn’t these people leave behind any family or friends who would want these pictures? Perhaps I am over sensitive about these things.
Next we headed to Ilion to search for costumes for Spring Into Murder (you know, the murder mystery we are doing next Saturday at Morning Star Methodist Church in Ilion? Perhaps I will write a blog post about it tomorrow). First Kim pointed out a shirt she said would be perfect for me for any time. After trying it on, I had to agree. She found a gown we liked for her character for the mystery, then I found a shirt I liked for mine (I already have the purple pants). Then it was on to New 2 Your Consignments, where we almost always have good luck. And there were the perfect shoes for my character! I also found a black tux shirt with rhinestones that I totally fell in love with. Kim found bunch of stuff as well.
By now we had worked up quite an appetite so went next door to Franco’s Pizza. I had never been there before. What a cool place! Good food and retro ’50’s decor! I’ll have to write a full blog post about it. I even took some leftovers home which will be great for my lunch on Monday. Back home, we had another mimosa before Kim headed out. What a great day! I even had time for a nap before I had to start supper for Steven.
I have some great plans for tomorrow, too, including rehearsal for Spring Into Murder and Adventures in Housecleaning. No, the second one is not another play, it is me cleaning my house. I thought if I put it in all caps I could generate a little enthusiasm in myself. I’ll report if it worked when I make my Wrist to Forehead Sunday post. I hope your weekend is turning out as fun as mine.
