What do they say about best laid plans?

We watched soccer this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We planned to drive up to Waynesville to check out the Waynesville Fall Fest

But it looked a lot smaller in person than it did on the map, there were so many cars in the parking lot, and we didn’t see any masks on people walking in to the fest….

We decided to add Waynesville Fall Fest to the list of things to do next fall along with the Waynesville Sauerkraut Festival. So we decided to walk through the little shops in Waynesville again…

But first coffee…

I actually got a non-dairy maple shake instead. And it was pretty amazing…

But Genifer got coffee…

The cow painting that I love was still there…

We found three oil paintings here at Lilly’s Corner Mall….

And I almost got this one for the studio office…

If it’s still there the next time we come up to Waynesville, I’m going to get it.

Last time we were in Waynesville, we were told that this building is haunted by two spirits; a little girl and an older man in a top hat. And that they can sometimes be seen looking out the second floor windows…

So now we always stop to look to see if we see anyone in the windows…

Waynesville is always fun. We enjoy wandering in and out of all the little shops. On our way home, we stopped at Genntown Farms to get a couple of little pumpkins…

We stopped for lunch at Doc’s Place in Lebanon…

Genifer had a turkey burger…

I ordered this huge fish hoagie…

We stopped at a little bakery in Lebanon and got cupcakes for later and stopped for coffee at Kidd Coffee in Mason….

Here are our cupcakes….

And here are the paintings we found today….

We took the dogs around the block and Chloe was our in her front yard…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished Only Murderers in the Building on Hulu. It was pretty cute…

It was a really good sports day too. Michigan thumped Northwestern 33-7 and #2 Cincinnati squeaked by Navy 27-20. In soccer, Louisville City knocked off Memphis 901 3-1, Minnesota United drew with LAFC 1-1 and FC Cincinnati lost to Inter Miami 5-1. FC|C’s loss virtually guarantees they’ll win their third wooden spoon in three seasons in MLS. The wooden spoon is awarded to the team that finishes with the lowest point total in MLS. Three for three. At least they’re incredibly consistent.

We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ–ΌοΈπŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

We finally finished it.

It was a rainy Tuesday morning…

We took the dogs on a walk once it stopped raining…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack brings me random dog toys throughout the day…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Chicken Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats with couscous, tomato and herbs…

Ohmigosh. It was delicious. This evening the sun came out…

Good morning from Northside…

There was a little bunny at the bottom of the hill…

And tonight, we finally finished Game of Thrones. We’ve powering through all eight seasons, usually with three episodes a night. That show what seriously stressful. We were worried about the ending. We heard people were upset about it. But it kind of wrapped everything up with a neat little bow. It was a really good show but we’re pretty glad it’s over. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ°πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

We had a pretty low-key Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We got lunch from NYPD…

I forgot to take a photo of our lunch. I think we ordered hoagie sammiches.

Good evening from Northside…

And we watched Minnesota United beat Houston 2-0

And then we watched the last full day of the Olympics. It’s hard to believe they’re almost over already. But we sure have enjoyed watching them.

And we just had a pretty low-key Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸŸπŸ“Ίβš½οΈβ€οΈ

Our Wednesday.

Our HelloFresh meal this evening was Kickin’ Sheet Pan Orange BBQ Porkloaves with cheesy potato wedges and roasted broccoli…

We watched FC Cincinnati play to yet another scoreless draw. And that was pretty much our Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Hello August.

Good morning from Northside…

Early this afternoon we ordered Domino’s for lunch…

I like Domino’s. I think they make a good, solid pizza pie. And Genifer loves their cheesy bread.

we sat out on our back patio and watch some of the Olympics.Track and field was on tonight…

And then we switched over to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final: Mexico versus the United States…

The United States beat Mexico 1-0 to lift their seventh Gold Cup. And they beat Mexico for the second time in less than three months!

What a great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ“Ίβš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Today was a hot one.

Good morning form Northside…

It was a hot one today…

Our first HelloFresh meal of the week was Jalapeno Business Bacon Mac & Cheese with with crispy breading topping…

Holy geez. Every single one of these meals is delicious. I would definitely eat this one at least once a week. It was so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We were watching more of the Olympics tonight. We couldn’t locate the remote after the coverage concluded. And while we were looking for it, we were subjected to the local news…

Apparently, it’s going to be hot on Thursday as well. But oppressive? Really? There wasn’t another word they could have used? We were reminded again that there’s a reason we don’t watch any of the local news broadcasts.

And I recently tallied my 81,000th check-in on my Swarm

It was good Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ‘οΈπŸ½οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Saturdays are the best.

Good morning from Northside…

For lunch, we had our last HelloFresh meal of the week. This one was Sesame Soy Pork Bowls with sriracha mayo, cilantro and crispy onions…

These meals are delicious. This was one was no exception. But it was a little on the spicy side. It was the first one that we had to take breaks from eating because it was so spicy. Still, it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We walked back down to Gulow Street for some noodles…

Genifer order some Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese with garlic bread…

And I love garlic bread. Ohmigosh. We love Gulow Street so much. Everything is so good. We’re so happy they decided to become part of our Northside.

And later, we watched the Olympics in our backyard…

I forgot to take a photo of our projector set-up this evening. I think our set-up is pretty cool. I love the weekends when we can sit out on our patio and enjoy our backyard. And Saturdays are the best. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸœπŸ“ΊπŸ†β€οΈ

The Tokyo Olympics are underway!

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we watched the Tokyo Olympics Open Ceremonies. I thought they were very poignant yet exceptionally beautiful. For me, he most spectacular part was the amazing drone display…

Such pageantry. We’re really excited for the Olympics. With still working from home because the pandemic, it’s a quite opportunity to get to really deep dive into the Tokyo games and have them on in the background all day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ†β€οΈ

Also, it’s hard to believe there isn’t an emoji for the Olympic rings.

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
