A special delivery.

Good morning from Northside…

We heard a delivery truck coming down our street and checked our street-level WyzeCam

We had a special delivery today…

Jeannette ordered a bunch of beers and had them sent to our house for their visit next weekend. We can’t wait to see what she ordered. Special deliveries are fun.

Our second HelloFresh meal this week was One-Pan Bahn Mi Style Chicken Tacos with pickled cucumber & srircha mayo…

Geez. These dinners are just incredible.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we watched more Game of Thrones. It was a pretty good Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

A rainy Saturday morning.

It was raining again this morning…

The waterfall from the neighbors gutters was in full effect…

Oscar did not want to go out in the rain…

Eventually, the rain stopped long enough to go on a quick walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We didn’t have a big puddle on the side of our house…

We put together this little entryway table…

We got sammiches from NYPD Pizza for lunch…

NYPD is so good. After we were done eating the sun came out….

Good evening from Northside….

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

There was an almost a full moon tonight…

Today was also my 1100th Timehop in a row…

And there were photos of these two in my Timehop today…

We had a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸ₯ͺ🐾❀️

Now we’re ready to rock & roll.

Good morning from Northside…

Our backyard is ready for some more love…

And early this morning, our delivery from Lowe’s arrived…

We moved all the bags of rocks to our side yard…

And we tried to place all the bricks and pavers as we moved them…

We were almost done moving all of stuff when the skies started to get really dark…

We had two little paver stones left as it started to sprinkle…

And we moved the empty palettes to the side of the house just as it started to rain. You’d never even know there were just three palettes of landscaping material on the sidewalk just a little bit ago…

I have a feeling that our backyard is going to be pretty incredible once all this is done…

The side yard waterfall was in full effect…

But right now, it’s all just turning to mud…

It pretty much rained all day and then the sun came out this evening…

Surprisingly, all the rain didn’t make that much of a mess…

We also put down a bunch of rocks next to the front corner of our house…

Then we rewarded ourselves by walking to Chameleon to get some pizza…

Mmmm… Chameleon pizza…

Chameleon just started doing a deep dish pizza too…

We took our deep dish pizza home with us…

And then we sat out on our back patio to admire the progress we’d made…

We’re so excited. We think our backyard is going to be so nice soon…

But I could feel Genifer eyeballing my deep dish pizza…

And it turned out to be absolutely delicious. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸ»β€οΈ

Five years ago today.

There were a bunch of berries on our sidewalk this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight’s HelloFresh dinner was Bulgogi Pork Tenderloin with roasted carrots and lime rice…

These meals are so delicious.

Tomorrow, we get a delivery from Lowe’s, and we’ll make some more progress on transforming our backyard…

Five years ago today, we closed on our house…

It’s hard to believe we’ve already been in our house for five years. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Thanks, Turntable Lab!

Good morning from Northside…

I had been waiting on this turntable package that I really liked from Turntable Lab. The only problem, it was out of stock for quite a while. I told myself that as soon as it was available again, I was going to order it.

It was finally available again. I ordered it. And today it arrived…

It sounds soooo good. Now we just need to start to get some more records.

Good morning from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had our second HelloFresh meal. This one was Open-Face Pork Sausage Sammiches on cheesy garlic bread with green bell peppers and onions…

These meals are really delicious! I could really get used to eating these meals all the time.

In my Timehop today, there were these photos of water in our basement after a storm…

But even with all the rain we’ve been having, our basement is still dry now…

And speaking of Timehop, today was my 1095th Timehop in a row. Three years of checking my Timehop…

We can’t wait to listen to some music. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŽΆπŸ½οΈπŸ’§β€οΈ

Hello, HelloFresh!

The morning got off to a really pretty start…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar was sitting like a sir…

Good evening from Northside…

In the mail today, I got a free limited edition Dribble sticker pack from Sticker Mule…

I love stickers. And these are some really neat ones.

We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals so much that Genifer tried HelloFresh. HelloFreshΒ delivers step-by-step recipes and fresh, pre-portioned ingredients right to your door. And our first meal kit also arrived today….

Here are the three meals we chose to try this week…

The first meal we tried was Hey, Honey! Salmon with potato wedges and zesty green beans…

Ohmigosh! It was such a delicious meal and it was so much food. I think we’re going to really like HelloFresh a lot! We can’t wait to try the other two meals.

In my Timehop today were these two photos of Genifer and Oscar hanging out in bed back when Genifer had to still wear glasses…

We had another great Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

A Sunday pizza party!!

Our front yard is still looks pretty nice…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a Sun day pizza party…

We shared a house salad and a white pizza with chicken, cherry tomatoes and arugula…

Their special item today was mozzarella sticks…

Ohmigosh. Taft’s is so good. It’s one of our favorites…

And it was a beautiful Sunday evening so we hung out on our back patiio for a bit…

We can’t wait to keep working on our backyard. It’s going to be so awesome…

We had a really good Sunday.

BLTs & more work on our yard.

It was kind of hazy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We stopped for coffee…

We added some landscape edging and decorative rock border to our front yard…

When we were finishing up in our front yard, a guy jogging by stopped to ask where we got our bricks. After chatting for a minute and as he started to walk away, he said, “Yeah, I gotta work on my front yard and try to get it up to this level.” It was such a nice thing to say. And it made us feel so proud of our front yard…

Hopefully, we van get our backyard up to the level of our front yard. We pulled all the grass and weeds out of the front third of our backyard…

I tried to dig out an old concrete post anchor next to our backyard path…

And that was clearly a mistake. I put it back in it’s hole and filled the hole back in…

Our next step will be adding rocks…

We went upstairs to take some showers. Hi Oscar…

We had BLTs for dinner….

BLTs with wedge fries…

Good evening from Northside…

Our front yard looks so nice…

We sat out on our back patio for a bit…

We watched the Louisville City thump Memphis 3-0 and listened to some music…

We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯ͺ❀️

Friday night thunderstorm.

There were a bunch of ants on the sidewalk…

Good morning from Northside…

Hi Oscar…

And, Hi Mack…

Mack must have been trying to hide his new hedgehog toy from Oscar by putting it in the bedroom trash can…

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered an elevated dog cot for our back patio…

Oscar wasn’t real sure about it at first…

But I think he likes it now…

It was a very pretty evening…

But while we were sitting on our back patio this evening, out of nowhere we could hear lots of thunder but we couldn’t see any lightning or even dark storm clouds…

It was exact opposite of when we were out on the deck in the Outer Banks, and there was all sorts of the lightning but no thunder. Both were kinda odd. But we had a really good Friday.

Already three times this year.

As we were getting up and moving this morning, there was a loud pop that we could hear over our sound machine and then we lost power.

Oh. And it’s still grey and overcast…

Good morning from Northside…

On our way home from our walk, Duke Energy was already arriving on our street…

They had our power back on a little before 9 am. But I think this was already the third time we’ve lost power this year. And that’s a little worrisome. The Duke Energy website said there was an animal on the line. Poor squirrels.

Anyway, we have a lot of blooms in our front yard…

We had cheesy turkey wraps on the panini press for lunch …

The panini press has become one of my favorite little kitchen appliances.

After we finished our work day, we went on our walk and the sun was out!

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered El Taco Veloz through DoorDash…

Genifer gets the kids quesadilla with a side of beans and rice…

And I love their ground beef chimi…

El Taco Veloz is sooo good. I love that there is a service that will bring me a chimichanga whenever I really need one. What an amazingly wonderful world we live in.

If you look really close just above the leaf in the dirt, there was a little baby bird in the back corner of our backyard…

I don’t think the little bird had mastered flying yet, it would flap it’s wing but wouldn’t go anywhere. Eventually, it hopped through a gap in our fence where the side meets the back. Hopefully, it figures out how to fly pretty soon.

When we got upstairs, I was looking out our front window and I got the impression that tonight’s sunset might be really pretty…

I went back down to check it out in our backyard…

But it was just an okay sunset. But it was a really good day. We watched a couple more episodes of Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. And I’m super excited because the Euro Championship starts tomorrrow afternoon! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ«”β€οΈ
