Hello May

IMG_20200502_201054_357And it's Monday again. I should be thinking about packing my suitcase and getting ready for my trip as my flight to Europe would have left on Thursday. IMG_20200503_191249_936I was supposed to fly to Trieste, Italy where my parents would have picked me up and we were going to spend some time in Croatia before heading back to Austria. Needless to say none of that is happening. My parents have cancelled their Croatia trip. Actually they postponed it for September. Maybe, just maybe I will be able to go and see them then but it's all a bit up in the air right now. I have tried requesting a refund for my flight but since my flights were booked as a non-refundable fare the best I can do is receive a travel credit (to be used by January 2021) minus a $100 processing fee. I guess it's better than not getting anything at all. 

This is the last week before I go on furlough for three weeks at work. And needless to say it's going to be a busy week. A lot to finish up and take care of before the end of the week. 

This past weekend we had some gorgeous weather so that was something at least. On Saturday we went for a walk at a nature preserve in New Preston, CT and on Sunday we did our weekly grocery shopping in the morning and then headed to Millbrook Winery in Millbrook, NY. They have a pretty picnic area by a pond with very well spaced picnic tables so it was the perfect place to sit outside, drink wine, enjoy the beautiful weather and still be socially distanced. 

It was still pretty nice today but going to get quite a bit colder again for this coming week. Well let's see what this week brings. Kind of weird it's May already. All of this quarantine stuff started in mid March here in CT so we have basically been at home since then. Let's hope we can get back to some kind of normal at some point soon but I am really not too sure when that will actually be.
