Tickle Pickle Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we walked to Tickle Pickle for lunch…

When we got home, we were ready to eat our delicious Tickle Pickle. Genifer had her Eagles chicken sammich…

And I had my Bread Zepplin with extra cheese…

Today, we tried Tickle Pickle’s Goetta Van Fleet, their homemade mac & cheese topped with goetta and crushed BBQ Grippos…

We also got a side of their delicious mac & cheese…

And of course, we got milkshakes…

Good evening from Northside…

It turned out to be another pretty low-key day albeit it a very delicious one. We started watching Marcella on Netflix. “Despite marriage woes, a tragic loss, memory blackouts and her struggles as a mom, a London detective excels at what she does best: catching killers.” It’s another really good one. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

And seen and noted…

A great start to a three-day weekend.

We both had the day off work today. I could really get used to four-day work weeks. Genifer doesn’t work on Fridays and I used my very last vacation day of 2020…

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 18 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The lead of the eCommerce group at work dropped off a Christmas gift…

It was pretty amazing that she did this. It’s very appreciated. And the roll of toilet paper is hilarious.

Later, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch. As we were walking down Hamilton Avenue, we noticed a new hair salon has already gone into the location where Helltown Bazaar Workshop used to be…

Surprisingly, Django Western Taco just closed up shop and no longer has a presence in Northside…

And that’s a bummer. We really liked Django a lot. But whatever, it was time for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheeses with tomatoes…

I ordered my favorite chicken tender sammich…

Blue Jay is always so good. It’s nothing super fancy. It’s always just solid. We never had anything but terrific meals at Blue Jay. Afterward, we stopped at Shake It Records

It’s really hard for me to find new and interesting music that I like. I really like reggae. And I like usually music. I was thumbing through the global music vinyl. And found some interesting stuff to check out…

I’m going to check these out on iTunes or Amazon Music and then come back for the ones I like. At some point, I’d like to upgrade our turntable and get some little speakers in our living room as well…

Hi Oscar…

We took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

I had a leftover taco for a dinner snack…

Genifer made this sugar cookie mix..

I thought the cookies were pretty good but Genifer didn’t care for them. They could definitely use some icing. The dogs always go outside one last time before we go upstairs…

Tonight was the final episode of season two of The Mandalorian,..

Now that all the episodes are avialable, we could finally binge-watch the season. And it was amazing! That show is just wow. I wish we could binge watch it every single day. I wish they would make an infinite amount of Star Wars series with all sorts of storylines from around the Star Wars universe. That would be amazing.

In my Timehop today, we ate at Django when they were still in Northside…

And Oscar is a very handsome little guy…

It was a great start to our three-day weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Today was a beautiful day.

Good morning from Northside…

It was such a beautiful morning. Time for Legos…

Day ten of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We made delicious boiler sammiches for lunch today. Mine was Cajun chicken breast with American cheese on Hawaiian bread with Backyard BBQ Kettle Chips…

Both of us don’t have to work tomorrow. It took a bit longer to finish up my projects for the week but I finally got them wrapped up. And then we took the dogs on their walk around the block…

The sky was just so pretty all day today. And it was almost 60ΒΊ today. I guess that’s what happens when it’s not grey and overcast and the sun actually comes out to play.

Tonight, we watched some of the Thursday night football game as the Rams hammered the once great New England Patriots.

When we go upstairs for the night, Mack will come upstairs with us and hang out for a little bit. But then he’ll wander off to sleep downstairs in our second-floor studio office at night…

Most of the time he’ll come upstairs in the middle of the night or really early in the morning. During the day, he wanders off to sleep in our bedroom on the third-floor. He hangs out with us in the afternoon and evening and then he sleeps most of the night in the second-floor studio. We think he just likes sleeping undisturbed without us moving around and waking him up and stuff. He’s so good and doesn’t cause any mischief so we just let him sleep where he wants. But he’s an oddball. And that’s like we like him so much. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸΎπŸ“ΊπŸˆβ€οΈ

And it was a rainy Sunday too.

Bleh. Good morning from Northside…

When I was putting this blog post together, I had a hard time figuring out if these were photos from this morning or yesterday evening. It all just looked the same… very, very grey and awfully damp…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

Lowe’s had all their Christmas stuff out in full force…

Christmas trees are silly expensive at Lowe’s…

It must be the frosted tips or maybe the lights…

We got our artificial Christmas tree for a fraction of that a couple of years ago. We found it on one of those deals and discounts websites after Christmas. And I guess we got a really good deal. I liked this wreath…

We’re thinking about replacing the carpeting in our bedroom with this embossed wood plank laminate flooring in Seaside Chestnut

We want to remake our third floor bedroom to have a coastal cottage feel. Genifer wants to paint our bedroom. Here’s the colors she’s thinking…

And I really liked this rug…

And then we went back to Biggby for coffee

I tried this new Biggby maple waffle breakfast sammich…

It was really good. I would definitely eat it again.

And after some football, it was good evening from Northside…

We watched my Minnesota United host their first home playoff match tonight against Colorado Rapids. Andhe Loons earned their first playoff victory with a 3-0 win over Colorado led by two goals from Kevin Molino…

Take that, Stan Kroenke.

Two years ago, we were in Dallas for Thanksgiving. And I ate the spiciest chicken sammich I have ever eaten. It was so delicious but soooo spicy…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop.

It was just a low-key weekend with all the rain. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸŽ„β˜•οΈπŸˆβš½οΈπŸ¦•πŸ”πŸ”₯❀️

Our Election Day.

We got up extra early this morning to walk over to North Presbyterian Church on Hamilton Avenue in Northside so Genifer could vote…

I dropped off my absentee ballot at the Board of Elections last week.

The polls opened at 6:30am this morning. We got there just a little before 6:00am and Genifer was second in line…

As we stood waiting for the polls to open, the line steadily grew behind us…

Genifer got to cast her vote. And we were over at Sidewinder to get coffee by 6:45am…

Sidewinder had cinnamon rolls this morning too…

My office was closed today for the election so everyone could vote. And Genifer had a pretty light day with her work. So later, we walked back down Hamilton Avenue to Blue Jay for lunch…

Genifer had a five-way and fries for lunch…

And I had Blue Jay’s chicken tender sammich with cheese…

I love that dang sammich. Blue Jay is so good. We don’t eat there enough.

We enjoyed the rest of our Election Day by not doing much of anything. We played in our backyard for a bit…

And we went on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, I ate a carry out five-way and a cheese coney I got from Blue Jay…

This evening we went out of our way to avoid any news about the Election. I don’t think we’re going to know the final results any time soon. I just hope everything turns out for the best and that competent adults start running the country again. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ—³οΈβ˜•οΈπŸπŸŒ­β€οΈ

Burger King and some whaaaat?

Good morning from Northside…

We were so lazy today. We laid around all morning. Finally, we started to get hungry and ventured out of the house. On our way to get lunch, we stopped to get gas in Finneytown…

And there was this sticker on our pump…

And then it was onto the Home of the Whopper. We ordered a BK feast through the Burger King App…

Usually, Burger King is reserved only for road trips. But it just sounded really good today. And we ordered a bunch so we’d have snack for later.

I’m just going to leave these scores here without comment…

😳😬😲 What makes it even more nuts is when you combine today’s Liverpool and United results with last weekend’s thumping of City by Leicester…

It brings me great joy whenever United or Liverpool lose. And to have them both great thumped on the same day, just makes for a really great Sunday. Now I have a couple of matches to go back and watch to see just what the heck happened.

Good evening from Northside…

And we finished our Sunday with ball in our backyard until it got too dark…

We had a very nice, lazy and relaxing Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ‘‘πŸ“Ίβš½οΈβ€οΈ

Covington Yard & Holiday Spirits.

This afternoon we headed out to cross the river over into Kentucky…

On our way, we drove by the new soccer stadium in the West End…

It looks pretty nice. Too bad the team that will be playing in the there is so terrible. We also drove by our old apartment building

And then it was over the river into Kentucky…

And then we were at Covington Yard

Genifer had a sangria slushie…

There are three shipping containers restaurants at Covington Yard: Mr. Bulgogi Korean BBQ, Django Western Taco and Yardbird…

We can get delicious Django tacos whenever we want and Mr. Bulgogi wasn’t open so we shared their delicious chicken sammich and fries from Yardbird…

That chicken sammich was really delicious.

Genifer had a bourbon slush and I had a Mango Cart…

Covington Yard is so fun. On our way back home, we stopped in Over-the-Spirits at Holiday Spirits

We talked about all the trips we’d like to take when the pandemic is over.

And we watched a Black Lives Matter march go by on Liberty Street…

There was the new stadium again…

And we’ve come full circle. We had a really fun afternoon. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸ»β€οΈ

Oven pizza hoagie party.

We were pretty lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We made a Home Run Inn oven pizza for lunch…

I think Home Run Inn makes on the best frozen pizzas around.

And it turned out to be a pretty nice day…

Good evening from Northside…

And we had an NYPD hoagie party for dinner. Again..

We’ve been all about the NYPD lately. We like it a lot. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ₯ͺ❀️

Hello there, Pumpkin.

HAPPY LABOR DAY! We’ve had a really great long weekend so far…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

And it’s that time of year again. pumpkin spice everything…

And they didn’t have the bear OR the train in the international aisle…

And we had to get our coffee from Mad Llama

We didn’t get pumpkin spice anything. Genifer got a caramel latte and I got my beloved caramel java whip. Mad Llama’s coffees are so good.

Later, we started clearing all the ivy from our fence…

Our backyard fence is finally getting replaced this week! We’re so excited.

And once we cleared as much of the ivy as we could, it was time to reward ourselves with an NYPD Hoagie party

NYPD Hoagies are so delicious. And the cheese fries were really good too!

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty nice Monday to wrap up the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Starting the holiday weekend with Tickle Pickle.

Tonight, we started our long four-day holiday weekend by walking to pick up dinner from Tickle Pickle

Genifer’s new favorite is the Eagles chicken sammich…

And I my go-to Buns ‘n Roses burger with extra cheese…

It’s so messy but soooo good! We also shared a side of their mac & cheese because it’s just plain awesome. And of course, we also got milkshakes. Genifer loves the vegan Oreo Speedwagon, made with vegan coconut milk ice cream. And I got my usual Flan Halen dairy strawberry shake. We love Tickle Pickle. It was a delicious way to start the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ₯’πŸ”πŸ”β€οΈ
