Look up in the sky.

Compared to yesterday, today was very pretty downtown…

I really like my window view at work. But tomorrow, I have to change desks and most likely won’t have my spot by the window anymore. And it’s a bummer. 😀🏙️🌫️❤️

Thunderstorms.

Some storm clouds rolled through downtown this morning…

And holy geez, did it get dark outside…

Yikes. 😀☂️❤️

Checking out the WyzeCams.

We had an extra WyzeCam just laying around the house so I took it to work with me and pointed out the window at my desk so we could watch the sky over Carew Tower

It’s a pretty nice view. Good morning from downtown Cincinnati. 😀📷🏙️❤️

Sunday funday.

This afternoon we went downtown got an Uber to see this afternoon’s Reds game…

They were playing the Pirates in a doubleheader today…

We had tickets way back at the beginning of the season for the Reds second game…

But it got rained out which led to the FC|C monsoon game

There’s this new outpost bar out by the Wiffle ball field at GABP…

They’re always adding something new at the ballpark…

And the Reds lost 8-5. But of course, they won the second game 8-1 with a Jose Iglesias grand slam in a six-run first inning. And Puig and Double D went back-to-back in the 7th. Figures. After the game, we passed through Taste of Cincinnati…

Soooo many people. We also walked by our old apartment building. They built a whole brand new dog area in front of Sycamore Place…

It looked really nice. It smelled a bit like dog pee when we were walked by but it was a much better use of the space than when it was just a silly ten space parking lot…

And we kept walking up in OtR to have lunch at The Pony

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed for home. It was another really fun Sunday. 😀⚾️🐴❤️

And a cherry on top.

On our way home from work tonight, we stopped at Northside Distilling Company for a happy hour drink…

I’m in love with their White Russian called The Dude. It’s one of my favorite drinks in all of Cincinnati. And it was an Old Fashioned for Genifer. She love’s a good Old Fashioned…

I finally got a few decent photos of one of the cherries for our drink being carmelized…

Northside Distilling Company makes some pretty outstanding cocktails. 😀🥃❤️

Dream big & Fly high.

I ran out to get something for lunch. (I got a caesar salad from MidiCi at Race and Sixth Streets. It was really good.) On my way back to the office, I noticed this new-to-me mural for the very first time…

I don’t if it’s really a true mural though. It kind of looked like it was painted on board or some sort of substrate and then mounted to the building’s facade. Nonetheless, it’s pretty neat. 😀🖌️🎨🐷❤️

And it was a rainy morning.

Yesterday’s rainy evening carried over into this morning. It looked really threatening when we were taking the dogs out on their morning walk before work…

On our way downtown, it didn’t look any better…

And by the time I got upstairs to work, it was raining again…

But the good news is, I made myself this breakfast sammich croissant at work…

It was delicious. And later, there was strawberry birthday cheesecake at work…

So it’s all good. 😀☁️🌧️🥐❤️

Beautiful day, rainy evening.

It had been pretty sunny all day until it was just about time to go home. Then it got all grey and overcast and started to rain…

Bleh. 😀☁️☔️❤️

#CincyStreetBots 🤖

When I was walking around downtown Cincinnati today, I stumbled across another one of those little (what I’m calling) #CincyStreetBots

But it was so long ago and I’m sooo far behind on our blog that I can’t remember where exactly in downtown Cincinnati that I saw this one. And that’s a bummer. 🙁🤖❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

I went out to lunch today to Taste of Belgium in The Banks with some coworkers. And I had this grilled ham and cheese sammich that was a lunch feature…

It was ham with Gruyère, Havarti, goat cheese, caramelized apples & shallots, and béchamel, whatever that is. And it was amazing! That’s all. It was just an amazing, amazing sammich. 😀🥪❤️
