And the humidity finally breaks just in time for the weekend ...

IMG_20180708_190743_235Hot and humid weather pretty much all week. Ugh. It was so, so hot and humid on most days. The worst of it was in the beginning of the week, Sunday IMG_20180708_191007_883and Monday I think. But the rest of the week wasn't a whole lot better. Eventually on Friday a weather system came through that pushed out the humidity. We had some thunderstorms on Wednesday (on the holiday) as well but that didn't seem to change anything. Just made it even more humid after the rain stopped. 

Wednesday (on the 4th) we went to see "Ocean's 8" at the movies which was enjoyable. Have to suspend belief for a bit of course but it was an enjoyable and fun movie. After the theater we headed to Fairfield to have a late lunch at Flipside. Eventually made it back to Danbury and stopped for a couple glasses of wine at Black Angus to escape the heat/humidity for a bit longer. All in all an enjoyable day. Thursday and Friday was crazy busy at work, mainly due to the holiday and also me covering for manager. Couple crazy things popped up as well. Was definitely glad when the weekend rolled around. 

And just in time for the weekend the humidity broke as well. Saturday it was actually almost cool for July. Only in the 70ies. But a really nice change from the crazy heat. Went to the movies again and saw "Jurassic World". Also enjoyable and not nearly as terrible as some of the reviews suggested. After the movies we had lunch and hung out. Then Sunday we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and spent the day outdoors. Checked out the newly opened CT Audubon Society Sanctuary in Sherman, CT (they only had their grand opening on Saturday) Was fun to be outside & to take a look at some of their trails. We will need to go back and try a few more of their other trails some other time. After we were done there we headed to a vineyard in Amenia, NY called Cascade Mountain. Then made another stop at Millbrook Winery. Weather was perfect so it was great to sit outside with a glass of wine overlooking the pond and grapes. After that we were ready for lunch and stopped at Hurricane's in Poughkeepsie before heading home. So a nice weekend all in all.

Now it's Monday again and another week ahead. Also in less fun news my dad has been in the hospital since Tuesday. They are running some tests to see exactly what's wrong and how to best treat him. Hopefully they will be able to get him feeling better in not too long of a time span. Just need to be patient. For now he's in good hands and good care. Will update as we know more.
