Hopkins Inn Lunch ... and general updates

IMG_20220731_191846_055Almost August. This year is truly just flying by. I don't want to be wishing away the summer but at the same time I am looking forward to fall/autumn and hopefully work calming down a little once we get past the peak summer season. I also just booked my next trip to Austria. I will be gone September 4 to 26, 3 weeks straight. I will be working for a good amount of time while there, probably about half of the time, and taking time off for the rest of the time. So September will be a blur, that's for sure. 

Not too much else new. Tuesday night I had a massage appointment which was nice (signing up for the membership at Massage Envy in 2020 was honestly the best thing I have ever done for myself) Other than that it was a regular busy week. 

The weekend was nice and uneventful really. Yesterday we had lunch at Rizzuto's and then stopped at Edison and ended up watching "Back to the Future" when we got home. I hadn't seen that movie in ages so that was fun. 

Today we had lunch at the Hopkins Inn at Lake Waramaug. Always a treat going there. We usually go about once a year and it's always so nice to sit outside on their huge patio/porch overlooking the lake eating delicious food. We had escargot to start (my favorite part is dipping the bread into the garlicky buttery sauce - so good) and I had Cordon Bleu for my entree and a Toblerone Sundae for dessert. Way more than I usually eat for lunch but I have leftovers from the cordon bleu which I think I will devour for dinner. 

We will probably watch some TV in a bit. Not sure what show we are going to start on next. There are still so many that we have been meaning to catch up on. Declensions, decisions. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to: Celia/MA, Nina/WA, Eunice/Malta and Kimber/Halifax.
