Last weekend was a much needed patio date night. I wanted to go to Birches on Long Lake, but could only get a 4 pm or 8 pm reservation, and neither time seemed great. I knew I wanted to go eat somewhere in that area, so I randomly picked Primo’s Plates and Pours. While they aren’t lakeside, their patio is small and social distanced, and they have planters so that you don’t feel like you’re just sitting on pavement.
I had the best italian sandwhich of my life, and tasted the best beverage, prosecco topped with limencello. I’ll definitely be recreating that drink at home in the future. But I’ll also be visiting Primo’s again. Part of the bonus of going to dinner and it being summer, we had a gorgeous sunset drive home.
I’m typing this Thursday morning because my company nicely gave us both Friday and Thursday off for the 4th of July. While our country is far from perfect, I am glad I live here. This summer had the potential for a week in Canada that I am pretty sure won’t happen at all, but it will just make me more excited if the opportunity is available next year. And at this point I have so many vacation days available, there could be a lot of 3 and 4 day weeks for me in December, and maybe November.
In the health insurance world, January 1 effective dates are common, and typically August is when we start reviewing those cases, but instead I’ve already reviewed a dozen or so, and am sure next week there will be even more. I’m not sure what this fall will bring, but I hope for good things.
Since today is Thursday, and I’ll schedule this for Sunday, I have no idea what all will happen this weekend. My hope is that everyone stays safe, and that any fireworks delight those who love them, and stay silent for those who aren’t fans.
Are you a fan of fireworks? Or would you rather just watch a silent sunset?
