Bye Bye August
Tomorrow is already September. I really can't begin to comprehend how that happened. I mean time always flies but this year is just extra weird with everything going on. I think it just feels like summer never happened. Yes it was hot and humid but there wasn't anything much we could ever do. No concerts, no baseball games, no city trips, sightseeing, museums, movies, nothing. Luckily we have been able to hang out at wineries so that's a small blessing but everything else has been rather dull.
This past week on Thursday we brought Mindy to the vet. Dropped her off for the day so they could get an urine sample from her. And luckily the crystals in her urine have disappeared. They want to keep her on the special urinary diet food for the next 3 months and then re-check her. Overall she is pretty much acting normal again so hopefully all will be ok when we re-check around Thanksgiving.
On Saturday the weather was super humid and rainy for most of the day (leftovers from the hurricane coming through) so we went for lunch at Rosy's. Later in the day the weather cleared up a bit and we stopped at Centrico and were able to sit outside and it actually turned into a rather nice evening. Not bad at all.
Then yesterday, Sunday, we drove down to Westport and took advantage of the nicer, less humid weather. Went to Sherwood Island State Park. Mike and his sister used to go there with their parents when they were kids when they went to the beach. I actually had never been there, neither Mike or I are big "spend the whole day at the beach" people. But it was fun to check out the area and the different trails and paths. Walked 3.7 miles according to my FitBit so that was good. After we were done there we headed to Rizzuto's for lunch (only a 10 min drive from the state park) Had a nice leisurely lunch and eventually headed home to binge on more Schitt's Creek. Oh, Saturday night we watched the new Bill & Ted movie. As expected it was pretty dumb but in a fun way.
Well now it's Monday again and we'll see what this week brings. Tomorrow I am meeting up with my friend Susanna for dinner after work. We used to work together and haven't seen her since Feb or March in before COVID times. So will be nice to catch up.
