Memorial Day Weekend

IMG_20180528_140451_782And here we are. Long weekend already gone and over again. Why does time fly by so fast? Oh well. Had a nice 3-day weekend though so no complaints Pixlr (1) there. Well the weather could have been a bit nicer but oh well what can you do? Saturday we were close to 90F (32C) with a pretty high humidity. We went wine tasting at Brotherhood Winery and then had lunch outside at Captain Jake's in Newburgh. It's on the riverfront overlooking the Hudson River. You sit in the shade so it was bearable to be outside. Still very humid though. We made the best of it and had a yummy seafood lunch. Later in the evening I did some reading while Mike caught up with some friends at Two Steps. 

Sunday the weather was the total opposite. Dreary, rainy, cool and just barely 60F (15C) as the high. So we decided to go to the movies and saw "Solo", the new Star Wars movie. Was an enjoyable and funny movie. I am not usually a huge Star Wars fan but it was a good movie. After the movies we had lunch at 121 in Oxford and then stopped at Rizzuto's to meet up with John & Jana for a bit. So that brings us to Monday. The weather was a bit better on Monday, at least no rain. Temps were supposed to get up to 70F (21C) but I am not sure if they really did. It was overcast and a little damp but we made the best of it and went for a short walk through the trails at the Audubon Society in Fairfield. Everything was super green and super lush, a bit damp but cool and nice in its own way. Had fun walking around for a bit and then went to lunch at Flipside in Fairfield. Later we stopped at Terra at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury to check it out. It's pretty close to home and we've been meaning to go since they opened but just never did. Had a good time hanging out for a while. Good Happy Hour too. Then caught up on a few shows on the DVR when we got home. 

And well here we are, now it's Tuesday morning and back to reality and work. Ugh. Not sure I am ready for it. I will sip my tea for a bit longer before I have to leave for work. Our cat Mindy has decided to go sit on my lap which is not very motivating either. Guess I will get through it somehow. We will see what the week brings. I am sure it will be busy, no doubt. Now that Memorial Day is over we have officially entered the crazy period at work. :)
