Memorial Day Weekend

IMG_20210530_140925_703Happy Memorial Day! :) Having a long weekend which is nice but the weather has been absolutely dismal. Considering we had 90F (32C) a week ago this weekend was cold and raining pretty much every day. 55F (12c) and rain was really not what I had in mind for a long holiday weekend but I guess you don't get to pick the weather, do you? So yeah that was Saturday and Sunday. Today is a tiny bit better. It's not raining right now, although it is completely overcast but is supposed to warm up a little bit by late afternoon. We are heading to Hawk Ridge Winery in Watertown, CT. They have a covered deck so even if it decides to rain again we should be ok.  Still not really the weather I was hoping for but we'll make the best of it. 

Saturday we went to Rizzuto's in Westport and afterwards saw "Cruella" at a theater close by in Norwalk. Was a lot of fun to go to the movies again. It's been a while since we actually went to the movies. Last movie we saw was 'Wonderwoman 1984' on Christmas last year and the one before that was "Emma" in March 2020 before everything shut down. And typically we would go to the movies almost every or every other weekend as our routine so it's been kind of weird. 

Yesterday, Sunday, we decided to check out the Aldrich Contemporary Museum in Ridgefield. Had never been and thought might be something nice to do on a rainy day. The museum wasn't bad but out of the three galleries they had only one was open (the other two were being set up with new exhibits) so we were done super quickly. They also had a small sculpture garden outside so we ventured out into the drizzling rain for a bit but yeah, wasn't a super long visit. Oh well. Afterwards we went to the Barndoor restaurant for brunch. Bottomless mimomas - yay. And later stopped at Rosy's for a bit before heading home and catching up on some recorded TV. 

So today we are leaving for the winery in a bit. Later also need to stop at the grocery store for some items and will see what else we will do. And well tomorrow it's back to work. I am sure the day after the holiday will be busy so not really looking forward to it but oh well. That can be tomorrow's worry. Right?
