It’s a sign.

It looked like Cr-zy Monk Asian Eatery is almost open for business on Main Street in downtown Cincinnati…

I’ll have to try to check it out sometime really soon. 😀🥡❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

It looks like they finished the support structure for the first floor of the building they are constructing across the street...

😀🚧❤️

Good evening from Northside.

Here’s the original photo I took…

And here’s how it looked after I ran it through the ol’ Instragram filters…

Good evening from our backyard in Northside. Taken with Instagram. 😀🌄❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken…

Ohmigosh. It’s so good. And we had Trader Joe’s Potstickers too…

It’s as good if not better than almost any takeout Chinese food we’ve had. It’s quickly become one of our very favorite meals. 😀🥡❤️

Garter snake.

Look at this little garter snake we saw on our dog walk this evening…

I was really happy that our dogs didn’t notice it. Mack eats bees in our backyard. So I could only imagine what they would have done to this poor little snake. Funny enough, we saw a little garter snake like this in our backyard about a week ago. All this time in Northside and we’ve never seen a snake. And then we see two in a little over a week.

Fantasy basketball 2019.

I played NBA fantasy basketball again this year. I can’t find any mention of last season on our blog but I’m pretty sure I played fantasy basketball last season. But anyway. I played five teams this season. My Bouncy Balls went 17-3 during the regular season…

They made the playoff winners bracket as the two seed…

And in the championship matchup, I finally defeated an undefeated team…

My team Fire Balls were the three seed in the playoffs but lost by just eight points in the championship. Eight…

My Shot Clock Violators went undefeated through the 20-game regular season…

And they continued their unbeaten run in the first round of the playoffs…

And they claimed their championship by having a perfect season…

In every fantasy season, I always do an auto draft team. My Team Action Auto Draft team made the championship but got thumped in the final round…

My fifth team was called Sneaker Heads. They went 10-10 on the season but somehow entered the playoffs as the two seed. Figure that out. They lost in the first round of the playoffs but finished third. Fantasy basketball is pretty dang fun. 😀🏀❤️

I still love my Swarm.

For just the sixth time, I went over 3000 points for the week on my Swarm…

And I hit 100 days in a row at neighborhoods again

And I still really love my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Sporting Kansas City.

FC Cincinnati was playing host to Sporting Kansas City on yet another cold and rainy Sunday. Remember when soccer used to be played on Saturdays?

And the match would end in a 1-1 draw. 

After the match, we hopped in an Uber to get back to Northside to get a slice of pizza at Chameleon and then we walked home…

And the slices were pretty much the best part of the evening. Standing around on another cold and rainy Sunday watching a lackluster performance. I’m getting pretty tired of these Sunday matches. If I wanted to watch mediocre football on Sunday afternoons, I’d go to Bengals game.😀⚽️❤️

Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up and moving and headed over to Trader Joe’s in Kenwood…

We love Trader Joe’s. We’ve become kind of obsessed with their stuff especially their Mandarin Orange Chicken. It’s better almost every takeout Chinese food that we’ve had. And it’s only $4.99. It’s so dang good.

Then we stopped by the new At Home store in Norwood…

I felt like I was in that last scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark

From there, we headed out to The West Side to collect our taxes. We got money back on the federal but we owed the state and city. But we came out ahead. After we got our taxes, we stopped into Menier’s Fine Meats…

I wanted to try their World Famous Chicken Salad

We a little container of the chicken salad (it was awesome), a little bit of their pasta salad and a couple of these awesome buffalo chicken egg rolls…

Meiner’s has really great stuff. And their meats looked out of this world. We’ll have to go back when it’s a little bit warmer outside when we can grill a bunch of stuff. After we were done at Meiner’s, we stopped a BDubs to share some boneless wings for lunch…

Oh, and mini corn dogs. I love their mini corn dogs…

On the way home from The West Side, we saw this sign for Chester’s Chicken at a Shell gas station on Boudinot…

That chicken is so darn cute. I wonder how the chicken is? It was a really good Saturday morning. We got a lot accomplished and we were still home by one o’clock.

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside. 😀🌄❤️
