A Busy Saturday So Far

I pause in my activities to make a Scattered Saturday Post. Check it out: I am making a Saturday Post ON Saturday!

We got up stupidly early as usual (not as early as when I work, but still, you would think I could sleep in once in a while). I went for a short run, wrote a few post cards, called my Mom and Dad, all the usual stuff. Then Steve and I set out on a few minor adventures.

First we went to Collis Hardware in Herkimer, NY. We dropped off a basement window frame to have plexiglass put in it. I am embarrassed to tell you how long we have been putting this off, so I will keep that bit of information to myself.

They were very nice there.

Next we went a little ways up the street to Mohawk Valley Community Market. We spent some time looking at the various vendors.

Renewed and Rescued is the store that started the Market.

I asked if I could take a picture of the staff, because they looked so cute in their Halloween costumes.

They graciously posed.

After that we were feeling peckish so went to Honey Brook Bakery for a treat.

After a brief interlude at home, eating our treats, we drove to Ilion. First we went up Otsego Street so I could show Steve some of the great yard decorations I have been enjoying on my way home from work. Then we went to the Thrift Store in search of materials for our Halloween costumes.

Our last stop was at New 2 You Consignments, where I scored a baggy of bead necklaces. They may not be right for my Halloween costume, but then again, I may stretch a point.

We are now relaxing at home, but soon we will begin getting ready for a Halloween party at the Frankfort American Legion, featuring our favorite band The Posers. Yay!

Ice Cream for Supper? Yes, Please!

Steven and I did a rather naughty thing by having ice cream for supper. I had a good excuse. You see, I had submitted an article about Honey Brook Bakery in Herkimer to Mohawk Valley Living magazine, only I neglected to take any exterior pictures. I suppose I could have taken the pictures and not eaten any ice cream, but what fun is that?

It had been raining, so we did not take advantage of the outdoor seating. Perhaps another time.

I checked: the chairs were almost dry, but not quite.

We both got sundaes. Steven’s had a brownie and hot fudge. Mine had a cookie and caramel sauce. We both had chocolate ice cream. Yum! We could not finish them. I put the extra in a couple of bowls in the freezer. I love leftovers!
