Winery Weekend

PixlrAnd it's Monday again. Why do weekends always fly by so fast? I guess it's nothing new. We did have a nice weekend even though it went by too fast of course. On Saturday we slept in and then I took care of a couple things at home (put a new bed set on the bed - always such a nice feeling to have new, clean sheets on the bed - I wish that feeling could last forever) Afterwards we headed to Oxford for lunch at 121. Then came home and watched the last episode of "Carnival Row" (it took me a bit to get into the show but now I am kind of sad it's over - hopefully they renew it for a 2nd season). After that we started "Mindhunter" on Netflix. I wasn't too sure on that one either, took me at least 2 episodes to get into it, but after that I was more or less hooked. Good news with that one is that there is already a second season out so once we finish season 1 we can also binge season 2. 

Not too long from now the regular fall season for all the network TV will also start so we'll have plenty of stuff to watch in the near future. Yesterday, Sunday, we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and went on a vineyard tour of the Hudson Valley/upstate NY. We started at Stoutridge and from there headed to Benmarl. We actually ended up not staying at Benmarl cause they had some sort of fall event going on with hayrides and an admission charge. So we skipped that and headed to Clinton Vineyards and from there on to Millbrook. At Millbrook we got a bottle of their unoaked Chardonnay and sat outside on their deck. Well, we sat outside for about half of our bottle. Eventually I got tired of the wasps and we ended up going inside. But it was still a nice day all in all.

From there we headed to Centrico and hung out with our friends Cait and Pat for a while. I had some delicious mussel and sausage appetizer and also a soup. The soup was especially delicious. It had chorizo, shrimp and avocado and was really amazing. So good. Eventually we headed home and watched a movie on Netflix. And here we are - it's Monday again.
