What a day, what a day, what a day I have had. Yes, I needed to say it three times. Earlier in the week, my sister Cheryl contacted me and told me she had been looking through Mohawk Valley Living magazine and had a full day of Mohawk Valley adventures planned. What else could I do but go along and enjoy?
We did enjoy ourselves! I met Cheryl, we picked up her friend Penny, and we took off. We spent all day riding around hither and thither (or should that be hither and yon?). I have so many things to write blog posts about and/or suitable for articles to submit to Mohawk Valley Living, that I don’t know where to begin!
However, I don’t need to begin right now. In fact, I have found that it is often better to wait and let all my impressions jumble around in my brain for a while. Somehow or other (who can understand the creative process?) (oh, YOU probably can) (you know who you are), my thoughts come to some semblance of order and I can write. How long must I wait? Ah, that is the tricky question, but we need not answer it today. Today my purpose is to make a Scattered Saturday post and get back to enjoying my weekend.
I shall give a brief overview of our day. I’m afraid it won’t be too brief, though, because we hit a lot of places. We began at the Westmoreland Winter Farmer’s Market. I hope to write at greater length about that one for sure, because there were several vendors there I must give a shout-out to. From there we went to the Westmoreland Antique Center.
From Westmoreland we went to Clinton, which I am not very familiar with. Our first destination was the Adirondack Cheese Store. We also hit Dawn Marie’s Treasures and Artisan’s Corners. All three stops are well worth a blog post, as well as a return visit.
After Clinton we drove through Franklin Springs, past Oriskany Creek, through Deansboro and on to Berry Hill Books. Yay, books! You know me and books. After that we found our way to Villa Verona Vineyards. You probably know me and wine, too.
I was plenty hungry for lunch by this time, but first we made a stop at The Olde Kountry Market. Cheryl nicely bought us a snack to hold us over. The delicious late lunch we had at Symeon’s was worth the wait. Incidentally, Symeon’s was the only stop of the day which I had been to before.
It was the most fun day. We’re already making plans for next Saturday! In the meantime, I hope to get started soon writing real blog posts about today.
