Crazy weather changes and some other mishmash of stuff

Garfield-springThe weather has turned more normal for this part of the season/month but since it has been so beautiful this past week and a half this cold rainy weather really doesn't make me happy. Today it's not raining at least but very windy so it feels even colder. And tonight it's going to drop down below freezing with frost. All the plants that started blooming will be very confused. 

Had to work Saturday but wasn't too bad of a day. On Sunday we originally wanted to go for another nice long walk but the weather didn't really cooperate with that. So instead we decided to have lunch at The Olive Market in Redding. We had a $20 Groupon (only paid $5) for it and our bill for lunch was only $5.50. Not bad. :) After that we stopped at the Little Pub for some dessert and drinks. I always enjoy the atmosphere there and since the weather was cool/rainy they also had the fireplace going which was nice. 

After that we headed back to Danbury. Stopped at Home Depot and Lowe's since we were looking for some new blinds/shades for the living room. We eventually found some nice looking blinds. They are a darker brown, made out of plastic but are supposed to look like wood. The ones made out of real wood were crazy expensive. These ones were still expensive considering we needed three for the three windows in the livingroom. Hopefully they will look nice. I will take pictures when we put them up. For now you can look at the link here. 

Tonight we are going to New York after work so I can attend the monthly "Austrians in NYC" get together organized through the consulate. Haven't been in ages so it will be fun to go and hang out with people. Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment to get some fillings done. Busy, busy. 

Mail Update: Letters went out today to: Jessica/DE and Celia/MA. Received letters from: Kimber/Halifax, Saya/Japan and Charles/TN.

you seem to keep very busy. And I enjoy listening to all the things you do. We stay closer to home, but still do quite a bit. And I don't mind if we don't. I worked for a long time in a very stressful job, and am sometimes just happy to be home.
But keep on talking about the things you do. I enjoy hearing about your life.

Best regards,
