I pause in my Scattered Saturday gyrations to make my blog post. Actually, I was pretty much done with the gyrating and on to the house cleaning and laundry doing portion of the day. Unfortunately, I got an upset stomach, probably from indulging in too many treats (don’t judge me). I am trying the effects of a cup of tea and sitting on the computer while I drink it.
The treats are from Click’s Cakes in Herkimer, NY, my last stop in the morning’s jaunt. I paused and had an eclair, then selected a few yummies to take home and share with Steven. Apparently a chocolate pustie is not a good substitute for a nutritious lunch. Ooh, was it good, though!
My stop at Click’s was after a trip to Dolgeville, where I had planned to visit two places recommended to me by a work friend. The first, Stella’s Styles, was excellent. I did not find a fabulous outfit for Secrets at Suiter House, but I did purchase an Easter (or something) present for… somebody. From there I walked up Main Street to the Motor’s In. I had a snack and wrote a few notes on my next murder mystery.
I confess to feeling a little sad this afternoon. I wonder if I shouldn’t be somewhere with friends, drinking green beer or something, or maybe have gone to the parade in Utica. I saw some of the coverage by WKTV News, it looked fun. I’m wearing green, but I lack anything really showy, like a green feather boa or sequinned scarf. My friend, Kim gave me a pair of earrings of a green top hat (I’m only wearing one; I rarely wear matching earrings). However, now I am sitting at home, what fabulousness I could muster wasted. I suppose not entirely, if I enjoy it, so I content myself with that.
Having reached 300 words in my blog post, I now must roust myself from my funk and get back to my Saturday. For one reason, I believe the laundry is done. My tea is gone (it did help the tummy), and adventures in cleaning and organization await. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody!
