Random Thoughts

Pixlr (2)Yup - still hot. We had some slightly cooler weather but now it's back to 90ies and a heat advisory for 2 days straight. Ugh. The storm last week that came through on Tuesday wrecked all sorts of havoc all over the area as well. Luckily we didn't lose power at home (it flickered a few times but that was it) and no trees down on our street. But there were so many people in the area with their power out, trees down everywhere, wires, trees tangled with wires, roads blocked and closed. There are still people without power and it's now been almost a week. it's really crazy. I know people are getting quite agitated with the electricity company. We had a lot of people out at work too, especially when it first happened. Things are slowly returning back to normal now. 

Over the weekend we went to Rizzuto's in Westport on Saturday. They were operating on a generator. Sunday we went to Rosy's for lunch and later finished the rest of season 2 of the Umbrella Academy on Netflix. Stayed up till past midnight but it was definitely worth it. I hate that it's probably a year till new episodes come out though. But I guess that's the way it is when you binge a show like that on Netflix, Amazon, etc. 

Other than that really not a whole lot new. Been cooking twice a week. Today i made a really delicious "Calabrian Shrimp & Orzo Pasta" dish from Blue Apron. So good. I have tried Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, Sunbasket and Home Chef so far. Next I am trying Martha & Marley Spoon (the meal kit by Martha Stewart) Tomorrow I have my follow up appointment at the orthopedist to check on my fracture in my finger. I think everything should be fine as it definitely does feel better but we will see what they say. Mindy has also been doing much better and seems to be responding to the meds and the special diet food we have been giving her. She has her next vet appointment in 2 weeks. So we will know more after that. Hopefully we can stop giving her this med and I also hope she can go back to eating regular food because the special urinary diet food is quite pricey. 

I am so behind with my mail and letter writing. Can't really explain why. But eventually I will catch up again. I am determined. I'll blame the heat. I just don't feel like doing anything when it's so hot. Ugh. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Nina/WA, Lotte/Denmark, Celia/MA and Kimber/Canada.
