Almost July ... hot summer ahead

Hot summer_1200x626And it's almost July. I really don't know where this year has gone. I know, I know, I feel like I do say this every year but this year has just been extra bizarre. 2020 has not shaped out in any normal way. But I guess it is what it is. The weather forecast looks like we will have an extra hot summer here in the Northeast. Joy. But I guess at least it is summer and we can enjoy time outside and now that indoor dining has somewhat opened again in CT we can also escape inside into the AC for a bit at times. Just making the best of it.

The weekend was pretty low key but of course flew by. Saturday we drove down to Westport to have lunch at Rizzuto's. Yummy pizza. Hung out for a while before heading back. Then stopped at Charter Oak Brewing in Danbury where our friend John Fazio was playing. The weather was pretty iffy with thunderstorms but it all worked out where he was able to play outside. Hung out listening to him play and eventually headed home to binge some more "Ozark".

Sunday we slept in and had a local lunch at Rosy's. Then went to the grocery store and back home, binging some more Ozark. Stayed up late and now it's Monday morning and I am dragging. Well, oh well. Such is life, right? 

This week we have the 4th of July - Independence Day Holiday coming up on Saturday. I have Friday, the 3rd off, since the actual holiday falls on a weekend. We have a reservation for 2 nights in the Finger Lakes. Pretty sure we are going but haven't decided 100% yet. The reservation is cancel-able up until the day before so we do have some more time to decide. I think we should be ok. Upstate New York and the Finger Lakes region seems to be doing ok. Connecticut is actually doing very well, thankfully. We are in a nice bubble here and have come out of this mess pretty well. I definitely would be very hesitant to go to quite a few states at the moment. 

Anyway, we will see how it goes. First need to get through this work week. I am covering and holiday weeks always tend to be a bit crazy so let's see how it goes.
