Break away from the comforts of the cabin

Friday, March 21, 2014 - Updated: 6:56 AM

With spring now officially here and the desire to get outside reaching a cabin fever pitch, we can't blame you -- as we are in the same boat -- if you've been scouring the events calendars, looking for good excuses to blow off housework this weekend and go find something to do.

Never let it be said we do not feel, or share, your pain. There is a virtual slew of things going on around here this weekend, begging you to get out and enjoy the above-freezing temperatures. The following is only a partial list of what is planned in the area.

The students at St. Mary's Institute will present the play "My Son Pinocchio Jr." tonight, Saturday and Sunday. Also tonight, there is a concert at the Glen Reformed Church.

On Saturday, the Century Club is hosting an aptly named cabin fever barbecue, St. Mary's Church is serving up a pasta fagioli dinner, the Amsterdam High School chorus is hosting a vendor fair as a fund raiser, Creative Connections has some wonderful art on display and some music to enjoy it by, the SPCA is raising money with its annual bowlathon, a lasagna dinner is planned at the Fonda Reformed Church, and for those looking to take a short drive, 100 antique dealers will be showing their wares at Schoharie Central School.

And on Sunday, the Century Club will host an Amsterdam Reads event, featuring Judith Redline Coopey, the author of this year's book, "Redfield Farm." The Northampton United Methodist Church will host an afternoon of folk music, the Wells Library will feature a bluegrass music program, and the Schoharie antique show will continue.

All of these events are detailed in the happenings calendar on Page 5 today.

And if none of this tickles your fancy, you can still avoid responsibility by heading to your favorite sports-themed eatery to soak in all the college basketball that will be pouring from its banks of wall-sized televisions.

The dust and dirt will still be there when the weekend is finished. And new dust is sure to accumulate. The armoire will still need refinishing. The oil in the Buick will still need to be changed. And the dreaded re-arranging of the living room furniture will still be staring you in the face.

So it makes no sense to waste valuable energy tackling these chores on spring's opening weekend. Get out instead and have some fun. You'll thank us come Monday morning.
