Garlic Festival Weekend

IMG_20221009_213941_020And here we are already the second week of October and it's definitely feeling like fall now.  We had a frost warning last night and leaves are turning colors even though they are not that bright which I guess isn't super surprising with the drought we had. 

The early part of this week was pretty dreary with a lot of rain. Finally the sun came out in the later part of the week and Thursday & Friday was even in the 70ies. But the weekend went back down to high 50ies and low 60ies. 

Thursday I had a dentist appointment for a cleaning. Other than that just a busy week with vacation coverage for a coworker and some IT issues with our VPN being down for a while. 

Saturday we  had a low key day with lunch and catching up on some shows. Also spent some time reading and having a quiet night.

Today, Sunday, we went to the CT Garlic & Harvest Festival in Bethlehem, CT which was fun. It's been some years since we have been and it was fun checking out the different stands and trying samples of stuff. We bought some rosemary foccacia as well as some jalapeƱo hot sauce. Afterwards headed to Walker Road Vineyards for a glass of wine. Even though it was cool and a bit breezy it was still nice enough to sit out on the deck in the sun. After we went to the Marketplace in Woodbury for a late lunch. And now we are home watching the Mets - San Diego post season game. Unfortunately the Mets aren't doing so hot and this is a do or die game. Guess we will see what happens. 

Mail Update: All caught up with my mail for once :)
