CT Wine Festival Weekend

Hanna-winefestivalAnd already Monday morning again. I hate when weekends fly by that quickly. And this upcoming week will be a 6-day week too due to the fact that I have somebody out on vacation. Oh well I guess.

The past week wasn't too terrible. Wednesday I had the day off and worked in the yard for a few hours. Always feels like a battle against nature and somehow I think nature is usually winning. :) But nonetheless it's still nice to be outside for a bit. Was also going to rearrange my closet/dresser but after working outside for a while and coming back in, taking a shower, having a late lunch, I just couldn't be motivated anymore.

Saturday I worked in the morning and in the afternoon we went up to Bradley airport in Hartford, CT to meet up with an old friend. Found out that he was having a 5 hour layover there while bringing his kids back who spent the summer in Texas with him. Was nice to see him and catch up. It's been a few years since we have last seen him. He used to work at the same company Mike & I work but moved away quite a few years back.

Sunday we slept in a bit and then went to the CT Wine Festival. Always fun to go and try the different wines they have. Also bought some yummy rosemary garlic dipping oil. The weather has been pretty unstable lately. Rained the whole time we were at the festival. Luckily all the wine vendors are indoors (in a kind of barn) and the rest of the vendors set up under tents. Once we left the festival we headed to the White Horse Pub which was on our way home. Met up with our friend John there and hang out for a bit. Yummy food. Nice sitting outside by the stream too. The rain had also let up but we also were sitting under an umbrella just in case.  

Mail Update: No letters have gone out. Received letters/still owe a response to: Lotte/Denmark.
