It was another rainy day.

It was another rainy day in Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

A grey day to be back at Grey.

It was a very grey and rainy day to be back downtown at Grey

But it was a wonderful really long thirteen-day holiday break. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Holiday break.

I won’t be here for the next thirteen days…

I have a vacation day tomorrow. And then Grey Midwest decided to close the office from December 23rd until January 2nd. Thirteen days off with nothing to do and nowhere to go. This is going to be a very relaxing staycation. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Grey counter volcano.

Not to make light of what’s happening in New Zealand but this paper-mache volcano has been sitting on a counter at Grey Midwest

I really want to watch this volcano explode. But I don’t want to bust up someone’s fifth-grade science project but also I don’t want to clean up the mess. πŸ˜€πŸŒ‹β€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

When I was on the Metro17 bus coming home, I managed to grab a pretty blurry snap of the building at the corner of Main and Eighth Streets. It has windows and siding on the front facade now…

I wonder what the apartments will look like on the inside. I heard somewhere that the building won’t be offering any on-site parking. And that’s kinda odd to me. πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

Dixie Terminal.

After I posted photos of various Christmas trees around downtown someone told me that Dixie Terminal had a Christmas tree as well. So I stopped to check it out this evening on my way to catch the bus…

And there it is. It’s a pretty one too…

Dixie Terminal is one of the true gems of downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸ¬β€οΈ

Window washers are brave.

The window washers are back. This time on the building across Plum Street…

Ugh. As I’ve said before, I do not do well with heights. And I’d be terrified that this would happen. No thank you.Β πŸ˜¬β¬†οΈβ€οΈ

302 Festive fun.

This afternoon I got to celebrate the holidays at 302 with festive fun!Β  The company that manages 302 West 3rd Street hosted a lunch catered by Out of Thyme

There were Chicken Cordon Bleu sammiches (roasted chicken breast, applewood smoked bacon, swiss cheese, horseradish mustard on side), salad and broccoli cheddar soup…

The little sammiches were really good and broccoli cheddar soup is my favorite. And there’s nothing I love more than free lunch. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ͺ❀️

Downtown details.

It was a really pretty afternoon in downtown Cincinnati. It was a little bit windy but the temperature was pretty nice for the beginning of December. So I ran out to get something to eat this afternoon. I walked over to The Banks. Along the way, I stopped to admire The Skystar Wheel with the Roebling Suspension Bridge in the background…

It’s become a permanent addition to The Banks. We still need to go ride on it. I bet the views are pretty spectacular. I ended up getting this sammich from Burgerfi

It was okay. I also stopped to admire the Rose Lavelle mural on West Freedom Way…

And when I was leaving work, Paul Bown Stadium was all lit up for some reason…

I love all the unique sights in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

Another lost shoe.

I saw another lost shoe this afternoon just outside of the office…

I really don’t understand how someone can lose their shoe. But my guess would be that it fell out of a bag or something. But I still don’t understand. πŸ€”πŸ‘ β€οΈ
