Warm, cold ... crazy weather
This weather is absolutely crazy. Spring, where are you? Come on, you can do it!! We had nice weather on Friday and Saturday with temps up to 70F (21C) but today it's back down to 40F (4-5C). What the hell! And the weather doesn't look too promising for this upcoming week either. Looks like mostly temps in the 50ies (10 C) with lows in the 30s (around freezing C) for some nights. Brrrr. I am really over it.
At least we were able to enjoy the nice weather yesterday and went for the first walk of the season. Between my ankle injury back in November and the colder weather, ice/snow, we haven't really been out and about much since last fall. I am definitely out of shape. But it was nice to be outside walking. We walked for about 4 miles on a paved trail in Cheshire/Meriden we go to a lot. It runs alongside a river and lake and has some pretty scenery. Plus it's flat and paved. So just the right thing to get back into walking. We had a nice walk and then lunch in Oxford at 121. You could feel the temperature dropping, getting windier etc. Today it's really windy, gloomy and cold. Total opposite from yesterday.
Well, one more full work week plus a half a week and then I will be on the plane to Europe. I don't know if I am ready. Well I know I am not. Haha. Between work (I still need to cover for a co-worker for 3 days while she is on a mini vacation) and just getting ready on a personal level, no nowhere near ready. I do have a bunch of things accumulated and set aside that I need to bring with me when I go. Just need to try and make sure not to forget anything. I have contacted a good amount of friends already to try and set up gettogethers. Won't really be in Austria for very long (just 3 days) Most of the trip will be in Croatia. Originally it was going to be Piran, Slovenia but my dad now switched to a different hotel across the bay in Croatia. Either way, the food and wine will be delicious. I am flying into Trieste, Italy (about 1 hr 15 min from the hotel) Leaving on April 25 and returning on May 7. I am sure it will fly by super fast.
Not too much else going on right now. Just taking it easy today. Going to drop off some clothes I want to donate and then heading for lunch. Going to catch up on some TV shows when we get back. And well then it will already be Monday again. Time just flies by too fast, especially on the weekends.
Letter/Mail Update: A letter went out on Monday to: Celia/MA. Received letters from/owe replies to: Nina/WA and Tiffany/OK.
