Time for Scattered Saturday

It is time for a Scattered Saturday post.  I feel it is better than waiting till tomorrow and hoping to make two posts (never a sure thing, however early I make the first post).

I ran this morning, making a long enough run to keep myself confident for the Reindeer Run 5K, a mere week away (yikes!). I even had some good in-head narration for a Running Commentary blog post.  However, that was not to be.  I shall instead try for a Scattered Saturday.

Our friend Kim picked up me and my husband Steven shortly after noon.  We went to Herkimer Original Cheese, where we sampled and purchased some yummy stuff.  We went to the Mohawk Reformed Church, where we bought some used books and jewelry.  We stopped at Side Streets for a drink.  We went to the Lutheran Church on Henry Street in Herkimer for a vendor fair, bake sale and basket raffle (Steven won something!).

Our last stop was at Valley Wine and Liquor in Herkimer, where we sampled some wine and also purchased some.  We adjourned to our house for a libation and to make plans for further Mohawk Valley Adventures next week.

I realize I can make better blog posts about these stops.  Perhaps I will at some later date.  For now, I shall return to enjoying my Saturday. Happy Weekend, all.

 

Love Those Googly Eyes!

One of the Mohawk Valley Adventures Steve, Kim and I had on Saturday was to go to the Basket Raffle at Mohawk Reformed Church.  We love basket raffles!

Kim and some people I don’t know browsing.

We each got ten tickets for $5 and walked around five tables of baskets.  So hard to decide which ones to try for!  I considered getting more tickets, but I was trying to be frugal.

The drawing was not till Sunday.  As the afternoon wore on, I sadly accepted that we hadn’t won anything.  Then the phone rang!  I had won the Now That’s Crafty basket.

“The one with the googly eyes?”  I asked.  Yes!

I went to the church after work to get it.  I told the ladies I was very excited about the googly eyes.

“And there’s a $10 Michael’s gift card,” one of the ladies said.

“I forgot about that,” I said.

“You can buy even more googly eyes,” she said.

I just might!

See the googly eyes?

Now I can get all kinds of crafty for Christmas.  I’ll be sure to write blog posts about it when I do.
