Humid Weekend - Wine Tasting and more

Pixlr (2)Monday morning again and I am not quite awake. Went to bed semi late after catching up on some recorded TV and was woken up by crazy thunderstorms a bit after 4am. I don't generally mind thunderstorms but this was crazy lightning and thunder and especially at a time where it was close enough to the alarm going off that it made it hard to fall back asleep. The storms didn't stop till close to 5 I think. One of our cats is absolutely terrified of storms so she begged to come into the bedroom in an absolute panic so she could hide in the back of our closet. She's still in there and it's now close to 7.30am. 

The weather has been a bit weird over the weekend. 70ies (22C) on Saturday, only mid 60ies (18c) on Sunday but really humid on both days. Not normal weather for April. And I guess the humidity is also what made the storms happen in the night. Again not normal April weather. We usually get thunderstorms like that in the summer. But yeah climate change isn't a thing right? Ugh. I guess don't get me started on that topic. 

Anyway, the weekend was good all in all. Saturday we went to lunch at 121 in Oxford and then the store on our way back to stock up on necessities (mainly cat food, kitty litter and some other basic stuff) I spent the evening getting stuff together for my Europe trip this week. I haven't quite wrapped my mind around the fact that I will be back on a plane on Wednesday. Been trying to get all my work stuff in order which has mostly worked out ok. But the next couple of days are definitely going to be very busy. 

Sunday we went to Millbrook,NY. Did some wine tasting at the vineyard and then enjoyed a glass outside on their deck overlooking the vineyard. They now have Gruener Veltliner which I thought was pretty neat. After that we headed to downtown Millbrook and had lunch at Canoe Hill which was a neat place. Strong hipster/hippie vibe but delicious food and drinks. On our way back to CT we stopped at Rosy's to meet our friends John and Jana. Hung out with them for a bit before heading home to catch up on TV. 

Sherlock is doing well. She hasn't worn her cone at all but she has been good about leaving her incision area alone. She's been doing well, eating, drinking, playing. Of course I haven't been able to prevent her from jumping as the vet asked but she seems in good spirits and doing totally fine. This week Friday (4/19) will be the 2-week mark which is when she would normally get her cone off.
