Goodbye August

Pixlr_20220831213923661How is it September tomorrow? How did that happen? I guess I have been wishing away the summer all summer long with being so busy at work. And somehow the summer did fly by I guess even though it didn't always feel or seem that way along the way. 

Anyway here we are. August 31. Not really all that much new. Was another busy week. On Saturday we went for a walk at Tarrywile Park in Danbury which was nice and then had lunch at Rizzuto's. And after that met up with our friends John and Jana at Centrico. It was Centrico's last day, kind of sad but at least all the staff we know and care about will be at their other location in Newtown, the Quarter. 

Sunday we had brunch at Broken Symmetry which was nice. Perfect weather for sitting outside. Went to Dr. Mike's for ice cream afterwards and then went to the Quarter before going home and catching up on TV. Finished the Orville and now started the 2nd season of "Upload". 

Just trying to finish up things and trying to get ready for leaving for Austria this coming Sunday. That has also come up way faster than I thought it would. 

And besides all that I am also worried about our cat Mindy. To be fair she has been hanging in there longer than we thought. She is severely anemic and there isn't really anything to be done about it. The underlying cause is likely some type of cancer or other disease, nothing that can be cured. We have been giving her steroid shots and it seems to perk her up for a little while so hopefully it will work again this time, fingers crossed. The earliest appointment I could get her is Tuesday next week so Mike will take her as I will already be in Austria. Keep her in your thoughts for me!

Another week

FB_IMG_1531271692905And here we are another week later.Really not all that much has happened I suppose. Another busy pretty standard week. Today is Saturday and we went to Rizzuto's in Westport for lunch and now just chilling at Edison in Bethel for a bit. 

Started watching "The Gilded Age" on HBO Max. I think I am up to episode 4 now. Has anybody else watched it? It was created by the same person who created Downton Abbey and I can certainly see the similarities. Enjoying it so far. Mike and I have been watching the new season of the Orville which has also been fun. Completely different of course. :) 

Tomorrow we have plans to go to the movies to see "Emily the Criminal" (new movie starring Aubrey Plaza) followed by lunch and then probably catching up on some TV. 

It's barely 2 weeks now until I leave for Austria. Time is just flying by. Crazy. 

All in all I am just tired. I feel like it's been a long and busy summer but then that's just how it goes in the relocation industry I suppose. I do have some time off to look forward to while in Austria so that should be a bit of a relief. :)

Winery Weekend

Pixlr_20220814183643277Ugh.Skipped a week with updating so here we are two weeks later. I don't know how that happens. Been dealing with a crazy heatwave that finally broke this past week. This weekend has been beautiful in the low to mid 80ies with almost no humidity which was a nice relief from the crazy 90ies and high humidity we had for a week and a half. 

Not really all that much else new to report. August 3rd we had a work happy hour at Stanziato's which was a lot of fun. Other than that it's just been the same old stuff. Last weekend was crazy hot so we didn't do much. I think we just had lunch at Rizzuto's on Saturday and on Sunday we went to see "Bullet Train" (new Brad Pitt movie) which was pretty fun and entertaining. 

This weekend we went to Sherwood Island for a nice walk on Saturday and then lunch at Rizzutos's. Later I made some yummy food for myself at home and chilled. And today we did a winery Sunday, going to Gouveia Vineyards and Paradise Hill Vineyards. Stopped at Jersey Mike's on the way there so we had some tasty sandwiches to snack on. Was the perfect weather to hang out for a while and sit outside. 

And now we are at the Quarter in Newtown. Just hanging out before heading home and continuing watching "The Orville". We also binged the second season of "The Flight Attendant" on HBO recently which was a lot of fun. 

Otherwise not that much new. Just plugging along.
