A Day With The Girls!

An early birthday celebration with the girls yesterday! My wonderful friends arranged for a girls day and drove me to the most charming Village of Sharon Springs where peace and quiet beckons. It was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop! The quaint shops and the employees were just so sweet! We started the day with breakfast at the Black Cat Cafe where I enjoyed their white omelet (egg whites, tarragon and goat cheese).

 Sharon Springs is renowned for its unique architecture dating back to the time when the village was an internationally famous health spa.  I think I read that the population is somewhere around 500+ now. So quaint! 

Here we are at Beekman 1802 Mercantile.

And here are my wonderful friends, waiting for breakfast at the Black Cat Cafe.

The Fabulous Beekman Boys were busy making goat cheese at the farm, so we didn't get to meet them. They have their own TV show on the Green Planet Network.  They are two guys from New York City that bought a farm in Sharon Springs (upstate New York), and have a herd of goats and produce the most amazing artisanal goat cheese and soap. I have never tasted anything like their goat cheese. I bought a sixth month supply!  

I just want you to know that I wore a black and white top so I would coordinate with the decor at the cafe and the Beekman Mercantile. LOL
Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Love goat cheese, which is rare for me since I'm not a big cheese lover.
    Buy any loot????

  2. What a wonderful day you and your friends had. I love goat cheese and living close (1 1/2 hrs.) from Vermont the stores around my area get some pretty decent cheese. I just posted on your delicious lemon brownies. They were a huge hit.

  3. What a charming place, Debbie! You have wonderful friends :)

  4. Thanks for using the time and effort to write something so interesting.

One Bitcoin A Day Competing globally in countries that would like to be more insular comes with negative ramifications, however the usage of the net and the ability to transact in a very presumably untraced fashion during a global marketplace will enable competitive pricing for voters to receive the goods and services required.
