A snowy Thursday.

We got more snow overnight…

And a snowy good morning from Northside…

The roads were clearer this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

It was very snowy in our little side yard when we were putting the trash out…

And tonight, Michigan made it two for two after their COVID-19 pause with a solid win over Rutgers…

Michigan remains the only Big Ten basketball team to never lose to Rutgers. And the Michigan athletic program has the best-combined football/basketball record against Rutgers since the Scarlet Knights joined the Big Ten. Go BLUE! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ“บใ€ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

The sun was out and it was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside….

But this evening, it was overcast again…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer made buffalo chicken pasta for dinner tonight…

With garlic bread…

And we shared this slice of rainbow cake for dessert…

We watched a couple of movies on Amazon Prime Movies again. We watched Alex Cross. It was pretty good but it turns out we had already seen it and Nocturne. It was pretty bad. We need to find a new series to watch on Netflix. The sooner, the better. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A winter wonderland.

It was very snowy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Work, work, work, work… And then the sun was really pretty this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Piri Piri Chicken and Feta with citrusy green beans…

It was another really delicious meal. The feta chicken was really good. And the green beans were topped crispy onions straws. It was really good. We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

Tonight, we watched Super 8 on Amazon Prime Video. It was good. Super cute. But you could tell it was an actual movie, not the typical low-budget schlock that you find on Prime Video. And that kind of takes some of the fun out of watching a movie on Amazon Prime. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Hooray for Saturday!

Hooray. It’s Saturday! We were so lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

And we ate fruit from our Edible Arrangement too. Both were so good…

Speaking of so good, we watched Leicester City drop three goals in seven minutes on Liverpool. And it was awesome.

Later, we ordered lunch from Dragon City through DoorDash

Genifer ordered Pad Thai…

And she got some dumplings too…

I ordered Chicken Egg Foo Young…

I also ordered these chicken teriyaki skewers…

I accidentally took this photo of our ceiling fan…

Good evening from Northside…

It looked exactly like it did this morning…

This evening we watched Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel on Netflix. That show was pretty crazy. But we weren’t crazy. We were just pretty lazy today.

We made it to Friday!

The sunrise was pretty this morning…

But then the grey skies started to win again…

There was a pretty deeper blue-grey in the sky this morning just above the horizon…

And by the time we were out on our morning walk, the sun was long gone…

Good morning from Northside…

The very pretty blue-grey in the sky was more pronounced up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Today was a great day to celebrate. It was Friday. We made it through another week. And this morning, our Edible Arrangement was delivered for Valentine’s Day…

It’s pretty amazing how expensive shipping gets the closer you get to Valentine’s Day especially when it falls on a weekend…

But if it was delivered today, it was free. So here we are…

And our arrangement came with a box of a dozen little cookies…

It looks delicious. We can’t wait to dig into the fruits. And the cookies.

We had grilled cheeses with turkey for lunch. In some circles, they call that a Super Bird. But whatever you call them, grilled cheeses are pretty darn good…

I really like dipping my grilled cheeses in barbeque sauce…

And for dinner, we had an NYPD Pizza party…

NYPD Pizza is sooo good…

Snow bear? Snow mouse…?

Snow hamster?

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished watching Wanted on Netflix. We had a really good Friday. And especially since it’s the start of a three-day holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

It’s cold outside.

It was really cold this morning…

Good morning from Noerhside…

When we came back from our walk, I noticed my Bombas were on the wrong feet..

The breakfast of champions: Strawberry Toaster Strudels and hot chocolate…

And SURPRISE! It was still snowy this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had Sloppy Joseph’s for dinner tonight…

We played in the backyard for a bit…

And then it was back to work while we watched more of Wanted on Netflix.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ›ทโค๏ธ

Here we go again.

It was an overcast start to another work week…

The sun started to make a brief appearance this morning before getting enveloped by the clouds…

The sky looked really pretty. Good morning from Northside…

This evening it was just overcast and grey…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. We had the Asian Sesame Pulled Pork with broccoli and jasmine rice againโ€ฆ

It was so good again. The Asian glaze on the pulled pork was just amazing. At the grocery, we got a delicious little carrot cake to share for desserts this week…

It was the start of what’s going to be a crazy busy work week for me. I have two projects that both have deadlines on Friday morning. But I’ll get it all get sorted. Somehow.

While I was working on my stuff, we started watching Wanted on Netflix. It‘s wildly improbable and a bit ridiculous but very entertaining. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Superb Owl Sunday.

Happy Superb Owl Sunday!

We were up super early this morning, even before the sunrise…

Good morning from Northside…

And we were off to run over the the grocery…

We always go to the grocery early, but we wanted to get over extra early this morning. We thought it might start to get a bit nutty with people stocking up on supplies for The Big Gameโ„ข…

It looked like Ice Bear was rescued from the claw machine…

He used to be right where the zebra is now. I hope he went to a good home…

Both the panda and the train were out of stick in the International Aisle…

And there were still a few balloons left but no owl balloons…

Just lots and lots of hearts…

As is tradition, we stopped for coffee after the grocery…

Here’s another photo of Genifer’s new desk. She moved it over in front of the window…

It looks really nice in there.

And good evening from Northside…

I was cheering for Tom Brady in The Big Gameโ„ข…

And there you go. We had a whole bunch of chip and dippers while we watched the game. It was a pretty great Superb Bowl Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Free birthday wings!

Happy Saturday! Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch this afternoon…

I had a free snack-sized wings for my birthday through their app. We picked up our BDubs out in West Chester and took it over to have lunch with Geri…

BDubs is such good stuff! We don’t have it often enough. And it was great to get to hang out with Geri for the afternoon.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we ate our BDubs chocolate fudge cake…

Ohmigosh. That cake was really good. It was sooo fudgy. I think I’m going to be good on chocolate cake for a while. We watched The Dig on Netflix tonight. I thought the movie was so good. Genifer thought it was just okay. But we could both agree that we had a pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅฎ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ
