I pause in the midst of my adventures for a Scattered Saturday post. I went for a run this morning, the first run since the Reindeer Run 5K last Saturday (don’t judge me). It felt pretty good. I was going to do a Saturday Running Commentary, but I had other things on my mind. I wrote my post cards, called my Mom and Dad, and Steven got ready to get moving.
First we went to a big box store that needs no plug from Mohawk Valley Girl. For one reason, it is the only place around here I can get my yarn. Then we went to Cash for Cans Redemption in Herkimer, where we cashed in some cans we have had for longer than we meant to. With a little bit of cash in our pockets, we went to Ilion to Moose River Coffee for a little breakfast. Yum! It is the BEST coffee!
Then we came home and hung out till the afternoon, when we got together with our friend, Kim. The first stop was Valley Wine and Liquor for a scotch and bourbon tasting. Kim did not taste, but Steven and I did. We kind of liked a couple of them, but we bought a little wine instead. For one reason, the Werewolf Chardonnay with glow in the dark label was on sale for $5.99.
Next we went to Ilion to another tasting at Beer Belly Bob’s. Bob had told us about it when we were there for the tasting last night. We tasted several beers and a couple of sodas. Fun and tasty! Then we went to the Municipal Building to see if we could get one of the horse and carriage rides. They were almost done giving them, and a number of kids were still waiting, so we tactfully retreated. We walked to the Knights of Columbus, where I had heard there was a Chinese Auction. The auction was over, but there were a few booths from the craft fair still operating. We enjoyed looking over some of the goods.
Now we are home, but only for another hour or so. Then we are headed to the Ilion Elks Lodge to hear The Posers, one of our favorite bands! I hope to do a LOT of dancing! I may be too tired to do even a Wrist to Forehead Sunday post tomorrow.
