Beautiful Weather Weekend (finally!)

IMG_20180825_141509_625What a nice weekend. The weather has been so crazy all summer (so much rain, humidity and heat) that it was a really nice surprise to have a IMG_20180826_165058_911beautiful weekend. Mostly sunny/partly cloudy but not too hot and not humid. The whole week was actually pretty nice. There were some days that actually almost felt like fall was around the corner with the brisk blue skies. But now this week we are back to the heat, temps in the high 90ies (35C) and humidity. Today is supposed to be when it starts and then tomorrow and Wednesday are going to be the worst of it. So at least just three days I suppose. We will see what next weekend brings. We will be in Washington DC for 2 nights over Labor Day weekend so that should be fun. 

So this past weekend, on Saturday we went for a walk/hike at Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining, NY. We went there one other time and enjoyed the area and trail so we decided to try a different trail this time. Enjoyable to be outside, getting some exercise and looking at the pretty scenery. Due to the weird weather this summer I feel like I haven't gotten much exercise at all really. Usually we like to go for walks/hikes on the weekends when the weather is nice but it really hasn't been possible on a lot of weekends this summer. 

Yesterday, Sunday we continued to take advantage of the weather and had lunch outside at the Hopkins Inn. Another thing we like to do once every summer and usually earlier in July. But again there really hasn't been that much opportunity for nice weather to sit outside where it wasn't either oppressively humid or storming/raining or both. So it was nice to be able to go there and enjoy a delicious lunch sitting outside enjoying the scenery. Stopped into Hopkins Vineyard for a glass of wine as well. 

Then last night we caught up on some recorded TV shows. I feel like we're really behind this year. Still catching up on TV from last season. The new seasons start up in mid September mostly. Oh well. Anyway now it's Monday again and another week ahead. I have a feeling it's going to be a busy week with Labor Day coming up. Well, guess we will see how it goes.
