More special deliveries.

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning. And when we got to Lowe’s, it started pouring down rain…

Like torrential downpour rain…

Believe it or not, we needed more stones. But this time, we got more river peebles…

And when we were on our way to our car, still raining…

And we stopped for more Mad Llama coffee

I had forgotten how many llamas were inside Mad Llama…

Mmmm… Java whip…

When we got home, the rain had let up and we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

So grey…

We were expecting another special delivery…

Later in the afternoon, the sun decided to make an appearance…

Good evening from Northside…

To celebrate the sun coming out, we walked to NYPD to pick up a pizza party…

And we hung out in our backyard…

Part of our special delivery were these flamingo lawn ornaments…

And since it was a bit cool from the rain, we made our first fire pit…

And another of special deliveries was this projector for our back patio…

The screen from our projector arrives tomorrow.

We’re starting to really love our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ•πŸ¦©πŸ”₯πŸ“ΊπŸ€β€οΈ

Coffee. Inside?!

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Mad Llama to get coffee…

And today, we could actually go back inside to get our coffees…

It was pretty exciting to be able to get coffee from inside Mad Llama again…

It’s the little things.

It was looking very dark off in the direction of home…

When it got home, it started pouring…

Once it was done raining, we set our new little fire pit out in our backyard…

We had one HelloFresh meal left for this week. So we ate Meatball with Bulgogi Sauce and roasted carrots, ginger rice and sriracha crema for an early dinner…

It was another delicious meal. There hasn’t been a bad meal yet. They’ve all been really good. We can’t wait to try our meals next week.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched the Copa America final…

It was pretty tremendous to see Messi finally lift his trophy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβš½β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Over-Ready Enchilada Chicken with southwestern rice & beans plus red pepper crema…

These meals are just amazing. I really look forward to them every night.

We watched Minnesota United beat Austin and FC Cincinnati beat Chicago…

It’s remarkable that both teams won considering had not good FC Cincinnati is still.

And there was an almost full moon tonight…

We made it through another Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ“Ίβš½οΈβ€οΈ

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad out there…

Good morning from Northside…

Today was the first day of summer. And there wasn’t any rain in the forecast today so we got to work on our backyard…

We dumped 15 bags of pea gravel and 15 bags of river rocks and 15 drainage rocks in our backyard this afternoon…

I think we’re going to need a lot more rocks.

We got cleaned up and headed over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Today, Taft’s had a specialty cheesesteak pizza for Father’s Day…

And it was delicious! Everything they do is amazing.

Good evening from Northside…

Two of the best words in all of sports… GAME. SEVEN.

We’re so happy with how our backyard is progressing. And any day that involved Taft’s pizza is a really good day. This was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸΎβ€οΈ

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❀️

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

Burritos, berries and Ragnarok.

It was another grey and overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Drunken Tacos through DoorDash for lunch…

We ordered the Loco Pollo Burrito with chicken, refried beans, lettuce, queso fresco and topped with queso blanco…

And we ordered the Bulgogi Burrito with marinated Korean beef, grilled onions, jalapeΓ±os and topped with spicy mayo…

And we ordered a couple of tacos…

The tacos were pretty good. But the burritos were just out of this world!

The sun made an appearance this afternoon after we were done eating…

Good evening from Northside…

And our side yard sidewalk was covered in berries again. This was after sweeping them all up earlier this morning…

This evening, we finished Ragnarok on Netflix. And now we’re going to have to find something else to watch.

Thursdays are for pizza parties.

I think it rained all night and it was still raining this morning…

And it started sprinkling again just as soon as we got to the top of the hill.

Good morning from Northside….

Genifer was painting our hallway…

When we were leaving to go on our evening walk, it looked really ominous…

Good evening from Northside…

As soon as we got on front porch, it started pouring…

And then we ran over to pick up NYPD Pizza in the pouring rain…

Our pizza was amazing…

We hadn’t had an NYPD Pizza party in a minute.

And then we watched more of Ragnarok on Netflix. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸ•πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

It was just a rainy day.

We only made it up to the end of the street…

And it pretty much rained all day. Genifer made cauliflower and chickpea curry for dinner tonight…

It was really good. She always finds the best recipes.

After we were done eating, it almost stopped raining long enough for us to get out and around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

And then it started raining some more. Ugh. It was just one of those rainy days.

We watched a few more episodes of Ragnarok tonight. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸœβ›ˆοΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Hello June.

Good morning from Northside…

This letter to Northside was tacked to a streetlight on the next street over…

Across the street the sofa was gone…

Good evening from Northside…

We have more blooms in our front yard…

Even one of our little ground coverings has a bloom on it…

We started watching Ragnarok on Netflix. It’s pretty good so far. But it’s really hard to believe that it’s already June. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒΌπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ
