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.ย 

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Slow down and Memorial Day.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester for a Memorial Day cookout…

I got to work the grill today, and it was the first time I ever grilled on a propane grill…

Propane was just okay. It’s definitely not charcoal. And it took a really long time to cook everything. But the burgers and dogs were delicious! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

We ate this.

Genifer made crescent roll vegetable pizza for lunch this afternoon…

I love crescent roll vegetable pizza. It’s one of those things I never get very often for whatever reason. Crescent rolls with cream cheese and vegetables,ย  what’s not to like? And there was extra broccoli. Broccoli is one of my very favorite vegetables…

For dinner, we fired up the grill again…

YUM! Everything always tastes better on the grill. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Smile for burgers!

I had an early afternoon meeting. When my meeting was over, Genifer got home from work super early. And we got to have lunch together. We had leftover cheeseburgers from the grill from a couple days ago

My cheeseburger had a smile one it…

And we had some curly fries with burgers…

YUM! What a great lunch. Especially since I got to eat cheeseburgers and french fries with my baby. For lunch. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Afternoon in our backyard.

It was so gorgeous outside this afternoon. The weather tablet in our office said it was an unseasonably warm 87ยบ outside…

Oscar’s groomer was deemed non-essential when the closed all the Ohio businesses. He’s gotten so shaggy over the six weeks. And you could tell lately he’s just been really warm and uncomfortable…

So this afternoon we tried to give Oscar a haircut…

I’ve cut my hair twice so far during the stay home. It’s turned out pretty nice both times.
I thought, “How hard could it be to cut Oscar’s hair?”

It turns out that cutting Oscar’s hair is a lot harder…

I didn’t do a very good job. At all…

Dang. Sorry, buddy. I have a new respect for the amazing job Lauren at VCA College Hill does with Oscar.

Later, we fired up the grill again…

Those burgers were just out of this world. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

UPDATE: Oscar’s groomer has started to take appointments again starting May 13th and he has an appointment for Friday, May 15th. So he won’t have to be uncomfortable for much longer and maybe she can even out the mess I made of his coat.

It’s not Thursday.

Almost every Thursday on our way home from work, we stop at Queen City Radio for a beer and one of their amazing Whip Classic burgers. This week we couldn’t wait and decided to stop at QCR on a rainy Wednesday…

I’ve also been really liking their cheese coney lately. I think their Whip Classic is one of the absolute best burgers in all of Cincinnati.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

We ate this OR it’s what’s for lunch.

We stopped at Nine Giant in Pleasant Ridge for lunch today. We shared some deliciously spicy Wu-Tang wings…

And we shared one of their burgers that I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about…

And it was indeed an incredible burger! We also shared a donut from Starlight Doughnut Lab, the new startup from Nine Giant’s kitchen wizard Ben Greiwe…

We tried this amazing chocolate peanut butter donut for dessert…

What a great lunch in Pleasant Ridge! Thanks, Nine Giant!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฉโค๏ธ

Wednesdays are for Second Place.

We stopped at Second Place again for half-priced cheeseburgers tonight. Genifer ordered her burger with a side of fries…

And I got my burger…

With chicken wings…

Second Place Wednesdays are the best!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
