Microbrew weekend

Good morning Revolutionists! Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope so! Mine was great, but not long enough. I could have used a lazy day to relax a bit! Friday night I did a little clothes shopping (apparently I’m still a Size 4, hooray!) and then I went to the “Racino” in Saratoga, which is a combination harness track and electronic slot machine facility. I love people-watching there! I lost about $10 over the course of about 3 hours (not bad), and I hit a really fun 50-free-spin game!  Everyone kept staring at me though; I felt really self-conscious. Did I have a booger hanging out of my nose? Toilet paper on my shoes? Weird. So I left and went home.

Tuesday I went to Peekskill, NY with a friend for a small brew festival. It was at the Peekskill Brewery, and they had several different breweries’ beer, some craft vendors, and some live music. We went to hear the Folkadelics play–what a great band! The beer was good, the price was good, the weather held out, and we made a few friends…a successful outing!


Beforehand we stopped for lunch at 12 Grapes.  I had a glass of Austrian wine (not good) and a crab cake (delicious). Unfortunately my band was giving me problems, so I ended up barfing up all the food.  Some days are good, some days are bad. Go figure.  On the way home we hit up a new brew pub in Catskill, NY call the Crossroads Brewery. Again…good beer, great venue, and a fun live band!  I would definitely stop by this brewery if I was going through the area again!

By the time I got home it was late, so I went to bed. I think we missed dinner….

Yesterday I went over to a friend’s house for a homemade card-making class, put on by a Stampin’ Up consultant. We made 20 homemade Christmas cards, and they turned out so cute! My friend had a great spread of food, and oh! The quiche! I had two slices! Piggy me! I was super hungry, which is no surprise after the day I had previously. I had lots of water, a few fresh veggies & dip, and a few crackers and cheese.  Super fun!


Scale today was 128.0. It’s a much-needed coffee kind of morning!

What did you guys all do this weekend?

    Sounds like a fun weekend. I chilled for most of the weekend but hubby and I went hiking yesterday afternoon. It was good exercise but nerve wracking because of all the people on that trail. Lots of rowdy kids. Still, it was better than sitting on my can all day.

      Are the fall colors in full bloom where you live, Karen? I hope you took some nice pictures on your hike! I love hiking this time of year. The scenery is beautiful and the temperature is cool. Perfect! Way to get out there and get moving!

    Sounds like a nice weekend.  My daughter had homecoming Saturday and we had some people over to watch football on Sunday.  Very nice, but goes by way too fast.
