Cheeseburgers & thunderstorms.

Good morning from Northside…

We went to get Biggby Coffee

Biggby Coffee is so good. We like it a lot.

We had to run some errands up north today, and afterward, we found ourselves out in Lebanon. We stopped to fill up our gas tank at this Marathon station…

It was just across the street from this train…

And we were presented with an unusual fuel option…

πŸ€”

We decided to just go with the plus. On our back home, we stopped at Quatman Cafe in Mason for lunch. We’ve been to the Quatman in Norwood a couple of times but we’ve never been to the one in Mason before…

Quatman always has a daily special. Today’s special was a cheeseburger, fries or onion rings and a drink for $8. Two, please…

Those onion rings look delicious…

And those burgers were as delicious as they were big. And they were huge! I don’t know why we don’t do to Quatman in Norwood more. Their burgers are terrific and it’s really inexpensive to eat there. We really need to change that and eat more Quatmans.

Quatman was sooo good. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk around the block. There were some ominous looking storm clouds that had just passed us…

But as soon as we got around the block and up to the top of the hill at the end of our street, it started raining…

And when we got home and looked out in the backyard, it was pouring…

It seemed fitting that it would rain on the end of our weekend. It was a great Monday. It was a really great long weekend. And now we only have to work four days this week to get to our next weekend!

Coasting into the weekend.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Kroger to get a few groceries. I noticed these crazy striped peppers in the produce section. I’ve never seen anything like them before…

And of course, we stopped at Biggby Coffee…Β 

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this vegetable tikka masala over rice…

For just a little pouch you warm up and serve over rice, it was really outstanding. Next time we’re at Whole Foods, we definitely going to have to get some more. It was really surprisingly good for how easy it was to prepare.

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty good Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ›β€οΈ

Happy Father’s Day.

Today was Father’s Day. We hope all the dads had a wonderful day. Genifer The dogs got me an awesome new BBQ utensil set and a super-cool new Reds t-shirt for Father’s Day. It was really very unexpected. She’s the best wife. They’re the best dogs.

Good morning from Northside…

One of the little bushes we planted in our front yard is full of little blossoms…

We ran over to Kroger this morning…

Someone bought the train that was full of jello cups in the International aisle. And now there is this jello cup filled panda bear…

Every time we go to Kroger in Oakley, this baby cart is in the cart corral…

After we were done at the grocery, we got the Audi washed at Mike’s Carwash…

And while we were over in that part of town, we had to stop for our weekend edition of Biggby Coffee

We were so mad. We forgot to bring our reusable straws today…

But our drinks were delicious as always!

Laters, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

Taft’s was having a Father’s Day special…

A large short rib pizza, caesar salad, a loaf of cheesy bread, and a growler for just $45?

YES PLEASE! I like watching the world go by through Taft’s garage doors…

While we were waiting for our pizza to arrive at our table, we watched the monsoon that had just started dropping sheets of water out of nowhere…

And there it is! Our delicious pizza…

We just ate on the pizza. We took home the cheesy bread, caesar salad, our growler and about half of the pizza…

When we were getting ready to head out, I super long train started rolling by Taft’s too…

Trains are so cool. I could sit and watch the trains go by all day.

On our way home, we stopped at Second Place for a bourbon slush…

When we walked the dogs, the asphalt in the parking lot atop the hill at the end of our street was steaming…

Good evening from Northside…

And we ended our weekend by hanging out in our backyard…

It was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Dinosaurs & cheeseburgers.

I’ve started doing these posts on our blog that just sums up our entire day in one post. I like them especially on days where we don’t do a lot. But I’m really struggling with what to call them. I was just titling these posts things like “Our Friday.” but that’s as boring as what we actually did today.Β 

We both had today off work for Juneteenth. Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to start our day with some Biggby Coffee. On Fridays, it’s free shot Friday at Biggby. You get a extra shot of coffee in your drink… for FREE…

We ran to Whole Foods to get some groceries and we also swung through Home Goods…

And then we were pretty lazy for the rest of the day…

Until we went on a walk with the dogs. There were some really pretty clouds tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

After we dropped the dogs off at home, we kept walking…

Down to Tickle Pickle

For burgers and milkshakes to go…

Our burgers were delicious…

It was a great Friday with plenty of time for quiet reflection. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Our Friday morning.

Good morning from Northside…

Before I started work this morning, we ran to Kroger to get some groceries…

Kroger had restocked their Shining Stars

I noticed some more oddities while we were grocery shopping…

And then we went to Biggby for coffee…

And today we had a Biggby coupon for half off their Bragel breakfast sammiches…

What a great way to start a Friday before getting to work. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Sunday funday.

This morning we ran to Lowe’s and then to Kroger. We saw this patio set…

The social distancing warnings are kinda getting out of control…

Also out of control are star-shaped waffles…

And then we got Biggby beverages as a reward for running our errands…

We worked on our front yard some more this afternoon…

We added another stepping stone path and some more flowers along our bricks…

And then we slowed down and grilled….

We made BBQ-Jerk chicken, sausages, burgers and first time, we grilled salmon…

The salmon was so good. We stood in the kitchen and ate the whole thing…

It was a pretty good Sunday, a little low-key but still a Sunday funday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Our Friday.

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started working this morning, we ran over to Oakley to get gas from the Kroger Fuel Station. We had enough Kroger points to get 30Β’ off each gallon of gas…

And then we stopped at Biggby for beverages and I tried their sun-dried tomato, ham and swiss bragel. Their bragel breakfast sammiches are really good…

From Biggby, we ran over to Whole Foods to get some groceries…

For dinner, we made this pizza we got from Whole Foods from dinner tonight…

And good evening from Northside..

That was pretty much our Friday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Another good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at Biggby for our weekend morning coffee…

We ran over to Home Depot to get some more stuff for our front yard…

Like this tomato and citronella…

This was our first trip to Home Depot in a long time. And it was also our last trip to Home Depot after we heard they pledged to back Orangey McLiarface’s bid for re-election in November. I should have guessed it with all the orange at Home Depot. We’ll just be shopping at Lowe’s from now on.

On our way back home, there was a train going by overhead…

We got this cute little shrub and planter at Home Depot with our gift card…

After working on our front yard, we fired up the grill…

Those burgers were from Whole Foods and they were out of this world good.

I think it would be interesting to do a coffee table book about the alleys in Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We also planted some little purple flowers in front of our bricks…

Our front yard is looking a lot better than it did a year ago…

We had another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Running around on a Friday.

Before I started work this morning, we ran over to Whole Foods at Rookwood Commons in Hyde Park to get some groceries…

The grocery aisles at Whole Foods are one-way streets…

Someday, we’ll have to try Ninja Squirrel Sriracha…

And some of these Bearitos…

And this spicy chicken noodle soup…

Summer must be here! Because we found a mini-keg of Bell’s Oberon!

Whole Foods has some really good stuff! And speaking of good stuff on our way back home from Whole Foods, we stopped for some delicious Biggby Coffee

After I finished all my work for the day, we walked down to Higher Gravity for a beer…

Later, we walked the dogs around the block…

And we got to see this ScareCorona all lit up…

And finally, good evening from Northside…

Today was a good day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ›οΈβ˜•οΈπŸΊπŸ¦ β€οΈ

Our Sunday funday.

We woke up early this morning to take Oscar to Petsmart to finally get his haircut. But first, we stopped to admire our front yard again in the morning light…

We were running a bit early for his appointment so to burn a little bit of time we stopped through the drive-thru at Biggby for some delicious Biggby coffee

Then it was time for to get his haircut…

While we were waiting for Oscar to get done with his grooming, we stopped to do some grocery shopping at Kroger…

Holy margarita display…

And it worked. We bought a bottle of peach margaritas. But this giant iguana in a tree didn’t get us to buy anything…

Oscar was ready to come home with some new toys…

And he looked so handsome again…

After we got home with Oscar with put away our groceries, we sunk our stepping stone into our front yard…

And then we rewarded ourselves with one of those margaritas in our backyard…

As we sat on our patio in our backyard, the skies started to look a bit ominous…

And was pretty much our Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ“…β€οΈ
