Snapped to Svengoolie, What’s Next on Scattered Saturday?

I guess I did enough stuff today to qualify for a Scattered Saturday post, but I did not take any pictures, so it will not be such an exciting post as it may have been.

I went for a run this morning.  I have been running all week, but I hope not to be so remiss in the future.  For one reason, I am registered to run the Boilermaker 15K in July.   Training for that will no doubt rate a Running Commentary post.  We shall see.

Later on, my friend Kim and I went to Stella’s Styles in Dolgeville, NY.  I have been there a few times, bit Kim never has.  Alas, we were so busy shopping that I neglected to take any pictures.  This means we must make another road trio to Dolgeville, right?

Back in Herkimer, we went to my house to pick up my husband, Steven.  While we waited for him to get ready, Kim drank a 1911 Hard Cider which Steven and I had purchased after a tasting at Beer Belly Bob’s Route 51 Discount Beverages in Ilion, NY.  I sipped a glass of Black Ink Red Blend, purchased at Ilion Wine and Spirits.

When Steven was ready, we went to Salvatore’s Pizzeria and Restaurant in Herkimer for a yummy dinner.  We love that place!

Now we are sitting here watching Snapped.  We may move on to a DVD’d episode of Svengoolie.  In any case, at least I have over 200 words.  We’ll try for some pictures tomorrow.

 

Moody Monday Moment?

I keep thinking it is Tuesday, because I am so damn tired I want to make a Tired Tuesday post.  Why am I so tired?  I’ll blame the weather.  We had some glorious cooler weather over the weekend, then it got hot again today.  Not as dreadfully hot and humid as last week, though, so I will count my blessings.

We had an adventuresome morning.  We drove to Dolgeville, NY, getting just a little lost when we had to detour for road work.  We visited Stella’s Styles, the Dolgeville-Mannheim Public Library, and The Sweet Spot.  Yes, these are all excellent blog topics for Mohawk Valley Girl.  I hope to get to them soon.

Back home, we watched a couple more episodes of Columbo on DVD.  I loves me some Columbo!  Naturally we got a bit peckish while we watched.  Finally Steven called Carney’s Corners here in Herkimer and ordered a chicken salad sub and some chips for delivery.  Yum!

After eating I sat here seriously considering taking a Blogger’s Sick Day.  I’m not just tired, I’m sad.  I hate to admit that. For one reason, many people have things a lot worse than I do.  When I think about it, I have a lot to be thankful for, and I AM thankful. Most of the time.  Well, don’t mind me; I’m just having a moment.  Moments pass.

So here I sit, waiting for my melancholy moment to pass.  In the meantime, I feel marginally better about myself because I did so write some semblance of a blog post.  And tomorrow is another day, for more adventures and a better blog post.  As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.

 

Scattered Saturday: St. Patrick’s Day Edition

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!
