Happy Memorial Day!

Today was Memorial Day…

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country…

We got up early this morning to run over to the grocery…

And we got coffee…

We took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We trimmed our front yard grass…

Geri came over for lunch. And Genifer made Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken

It was delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. And there was Carvel’s original ice cream cake…

We hung out in our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

We have some more blooms in our front yard…

It was so pretty today, we hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a very nice Memorial Day and a wonderful long holiday weekend.

A really good Sunday.

Today was much prettier than yesterday and it actually felt like spring again…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer ordered this planter bench…

And just by chance, it’s pretty much the same color as our fence…

We took all the packaging materials out to the trash and Mack was watching us through our side door…

We ordered China Food through Door Dash again for lunch…

Our receipt had our order in Chinese on it…

Ohmigosh. It was so good. We were so full afterward.

On the next street over from us is this house…

For the last two weeks on the sidewalk in front of that house has been this sofa…

The sofa’s cushions disappeared about a week ago.

Good evening from Northside…

We sat out on our back patio and watched basketball while we listened to musics…

We ate the rest of our China Food for dinner…

And as we were getting ready to head inside for the night, we could hear Memorial Day fireworks off in the distance…

We had a really good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿกโค๏ธ

It’s still spring right?

It was overcast and surprisingly chilly this morning…

Today’s high was only 56 degrees. That’s not really the temperature that comes to mind when I think about Memorial Day weekend…

In years past, we’ve been sweating buns off as we’ve wandered around Taste of Cincinnati downtown

Not this year. It feel like we skipped right over summer and went straight to fall.

But still, a chilly good morning from Northside…

There was a little bunny up at the top of the hill…

We were up super early this morning. After walking the dogs, we walked to Blue Jay for breakfast. But much to our surprise when we got to Blue Jay they didn’t open until 8am. We got to stare down this little alley between Blue Jay and Shake It Records for about ten minutes…

We had never noticed this little alley before today…

And then Blue Jay was open…

Breakfast at Blue Jay is always really good.

Later this afternoon, we walked down to Urban Artifact…

We met our friends Mehwish and Ben and their new little baby Aria. We hung out with the them, had a couple of beers and ate a bunch of Wildfire Pizza Kitchen pizzas…

On our way home, we stopped at Northside Tavern for a drink…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we sat on our back patio and watched Minnesota United draw with Real Salt Lake and the Grizzlies lose game three to Utah Jazz.

And other than the sports scores, we had a pretty good Saturday.

The start of a long weekend.

Today was the start of a long, four-day holiday weekend…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We got Mad Llama coffee…

We also stopped at Home Goods…

And we got Potbelly for lunch…

Ohmigosh. Potbelly is so good…

I put my new little stool in our studio office…

We spread some more pea gravel on our side yard…

It started sprinkling on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And it really started raining just as soon as we got home…

Whenever it really rains, there’s always a waterfall cascading from the gutters and down off the side of the neighbors house…

Somehow the water always seems to drain pretty quickly. But it doesn’t really cause us any problems. I’ve just never seen a gutter waterfall like that.

Right now, Oscar’s favorite toy is his hedgehog…

He’ll hide it and then forget where it’s been hidden…

And then he gets so excited when he finds it again…

We dodged the raindrops and went out in the backyard for potty breaks…

We watched Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse on Amazon Video. It was pretty good. And we finished Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix. For a super hero series, it was the slowest burning show I think I’ve ever seen. It was ten episodes of nothing but back story and character development. I bet the second season would have been pretty good if it hadn’t already been cancelled.

And that was our Friday. It was a pretty good one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Already tired of the cicadas.

Good morning from Northside…

Is there such a thing as an albino cicada?

Ugh. We’re pretty done with the cicadas already.

We had panini sammiches again for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered noodles from China Food via Doordash…

We ordered chow mein on the left and lo mein on the right.We thought the lo mein was better than the chow mein. But both were really tasty. And that was pretty much our Thursday…

Oh. And we started watching Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix tonight. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

There’s more than one water bowl.

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar and Mack always drink out of the same water bowl at the same time…

There’s another water bowl right next to Mack.

The cicadas are starting to be everywhere outside…

I forgot to take my little fisheye lens with us on our walk again this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had sausage with sweet potato and apple bake for dinner tonight…

And then it was upstairs for the evening…

And we watched the Grizzlies lose game two of their first round playoff series against the Utah Jazz. Bummer. But other than that, it was a pretty good Wednesday.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Hopscotch and club BLTs.

It was a very pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I forgot my little fisheye lens. Again.

It was also pretty nice this evening too…

Good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs for dinner…

I made mine into a turkey club…

We had a pretty good Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

Mondays.

I had a busy morning of meetings and we get didn’t take the dogs on their morning walk until later. When we did take them out, I left my phone on the desk in our office studio. And that’s a bummer because it was a very pretty morning. But it was also very pretty this evening as well…

Good evening from Northside but I forgot my little fisheye lens tonight…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one wasย French Onion Beef Meatloaf with peas and peppersโ€ฆ

It was another great meal.ย We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot. And even though it was a super busy work day, it was a pretty good Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Sunday funday.

We ran over to the grocery store early this morning even before we walked the dogs…

And then we stopped for Biggby Coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from morning…

We headed down to The Banks to go to our fourth Reds baseball game of the season…

We got a DORA drink before heading into the ballpark…

Welcome to the Great American Ball park…

Our tickets were in our favorite section of the ballpark, The Fioptics District…

Apparently, Fountain Square has a new stage…

We walked up to Queen City Radio in OtR to see if they had their amazing Whip burgers. They did not. So we hopped in an Uber and stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern…

And then we came home to hang out in our backyard for a bit with our new little lights…

And while we were sitting out on our patio, we watched the Grizzlies win game one of their first round best of seven against the Utah Jazz.

It was a terrific Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ’กโค๏ธ

Stuffed crust and backyard lights.

Our Saturday morning was off to an overcast start…

But when we got to the top of the hill at the end of our street, the sun came out…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to St. Bernard to pick up some Pizza Hut for lunch…

We got some stuffed crust pizza, a pan meat lovers and cheese bread…

Good evening from Northside…

We strung some little lights around the top of our backyard fence…

We can’t wait to see what they look like when it gets dark.

One year ago, we worked on transforming our front yard…

And seven years ago, someone left their Tonka truck at Lytle Park…

I hope they found their truck. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿก๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿššโค๏ธ
