Eurovision + Mother's Day

IMG_20180512_202043_200And it's already Monday again, a whole week since my flight back to the US from Vienna to JFK last Monday. Where does the time go? The flight back IMG_20180513_140936_193was relatively uneventful. Some turbulence but nothing too crazy. Immigration took forever but all my luggage arrived safely (nothing broke, spilled, leaked etc -- so that is always a success) Work has been busy since I got back. Pretty much a combination of trying to catch up from being away as well as just the busier summer months looming just around the corner. You can definitely feel the "summer craziness" as we head towards Memorial Day (end of this month) - the unofficial start of summer in the US. 

This past weekend on Saturday we went to the movies in the morning to see the new Avengers Infinity War movie. I wasn't so sure at first if I liked it (to be fair I am not usually a big super hero fan to begin with) but having let some days pass and looking back at it I did kind of like it. I guess I am curious to see where it all leads in the next installment. After the movies I headed home to watch the Eurovision Song Contest. Not something that is really popular here in the US but something I grew up with in Europe so it is sort of a nostalgic thing. It started at 3pm here (9pm in Europe) so I spent the afternoon watching it. Austria took third place which was very surprising but in a good way of course. Israel won, Cyprus took 2nd and Germany was 4th (also surprising as Germany hasn't done very well in recent years) After Eurovision I puttered around for a bit, straightened out some stuff and then read some more of my latest Teashop Mystery book (finished it Sunday morning)

Sunday we slept in (the weather really was not very nice) and then headed to lunch at Rosy's. It was pretty busy there due to Mother's Day (happy belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there and most of all mine of course) After lunch we headed back home and caught up on some recorded shows. Got a bit behind since I haven't been around for two weekends so we had a lot to catch up on. A lot of the season finales are coming up now so at least we will be able to catch up with some stuff over the coming weeks/months before the new seasons start in the fall.
