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. 😀🌄❤️

Special delivery: Octonauts.

I got a package in the mail from JJVE this evening…

And there were these awesome plush Octonauts inside…

Captain Barnacles the bear, Kwazii the kitten and Peso the penguin…

They’re sooo awesome! Thanks, JJVE! 😀🐙❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

They make progress every day at the construction site across the street

😀🚧❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made pesto tortellini for dinner tonight. And there was garlic bread…

It was so good. Genifer always makes the best dinners. 😀🍲❤️

Whoa. What the heck?!

We saw this crazy semi-pickup hybrid on the way home from work…

I wish I could have got a better photo of it. But I’ve never seen anything like that before. 😀🚚❤️

Ron Hamilton Photo.

Today, we got to take a tour of Ron Hamilton’s new photography studio on Main Street where the old Ace Hardware used to be…

On the second floor are their offices…

And on the third floor is the studio space…

I love backsplash tile in their kitchen…

What a great space…

Color me jealous…

And how cool are these prints?

They did an incredible job renovating the space. It’s such an incredible place. I hope I get to see it in action sometime soon. 😀📷❤️

NYPD pizza.

On the way home from work tonight, we stopped to pick up a delicious NYPD pizza

YUM! We love NYPD pizza. 😀🍕❤️
