The Premier League is back!

Well, it’s almost back. The Premier League season begins again in earnest tomorrow with newly promoted Brentford playing host to my Arsenal. In anticipation of the new season, here is the new Premier League Matchday Intro for the 2021/22 season. And it’s absolutely magnificent…

Welcome back, Premier League. I simply cannot wait for tomorrow. And come on you, Gunners! πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ˜β€οΈ

Hello August.

Good morning from Northside…

Early this afternoon we ordered Domino’s for lunch…

I like Domino’s. I think they make a good, solid pizza pie. And Genifer loves their cheesy bread.

we sat out on our back patio and watch some of the Olympics.Track and field was on tonight…

And then we switched over to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final: Mexico versus the United States…

The United States beat Mexico 1-0 to lift their seventh Gold Cup. And they beat Mexico for the second time in less than three months!

What a great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ“Ίβš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Sloppy Josephs are good.

Good morning from Northside…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Old-School BBQ Pork Sloppy Joes with pickled onion, potato wedges and chipotle ranch…

Sloppy Joes are so good. So good in fact that I completely forgot to take a photo of my Sloppy Joe before I inhaled it. And it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a bunch more Olympics tonight. We’ve really been enjoying them. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Coffee. Inside?!

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Mad Llama to get coffee…

And today, we could actually go back inside to get our coffees…

It was pretty exciting to be able to get coffee from inside Mad Llama again…

It’s the little things.

It was looking very dark off in the direction of home…

When it got home, it started pouring…

Once it was done raining, we set our new little fire pit out in our backyard…

We had one HelloFresh meal left for this week. So we ate Meatball with Bulgogi Sauce and roasted carrots, ginger rice and sriracha crema for an early dinner…

It was another delicious meal. There hasn’t been a bad meal yet. They’ve all been really good. We can’t wait to try our meals next week.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched the Copa America final…

It was pretty tremendous to see Messi finally lift his trophy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβš½β€οΈ

A special delivery.

Good morning from Northside…

We heard a delivery truck coming down our street and checked our street-level WyzeCam

We had a special delivery today…

Jeannette ordered a bunch of beers and had them sent to our house for their visit next weekend. We can’t wait to see what she ordered. Special deliveries are fun.

Our second HelloFresh meal this week was One-Pan Bahn Mi Style Chicken Tacos with pickled cucumber & srircha mayo…

Geez. These dinners are just incredible.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we watched more Game of Thrones. It was a pretty good Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

BLTs & more work on our yard.

It was kind of hazy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We stopped for coffee…

We added some landscape edging and decorative rock border to our front yard…

When we were finishing up in our front yard, a guy jogging by stopped to ask where we got our bricks. After chatting for a minute and as he started to walk away, he said, “Yeah, I gotta work on my front yard and try to get it up to this level.” It was such a nice thing to say. And it made us feel so proud of our front yard…

Hopefully, we van get our backyard up to the level of our front yard. We pulled all the grass and weeds out of the front third of our backyard…

I tried to dig out an old concrete post anchor next to our backyard path…

And that was clearly a mistake. I put it back in it’s hole and filled the hole back in…

Our next step will be adding rocks…

We went upstairs to take some showers. Hi Oscar…

We had BLTs for dinner….

BLTs with wedge fries…

Good evening from Northside…

Our front yard looks so nice…

We sat out on our back patio for a bit…

We watched the Louisville City thump Memphis 3-0 and listened to some music…

We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯ͺ❀️

Happy Memorial Day!

Today was Memorial Day…

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country…

We got up early this morning to run over to the grocery…

And we got coffee…

We took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We trimmed our front yard grass…

Geri came over for lunch. And Genifer made Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken

It was delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. And there was Carvel’s original ice cream cake…

We hung out in our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

We have some more blooms in our front yard…

It was so pretty today, we hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a very nice Memorial Day and a wonderful long holiday weekend.

Today was Genifer’s birthday!

Happy birthday to my beautiful wife. I love you so much, Genifer. I hope you had a wonderful, special day. πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ₯°πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽπŸŽ‰β€οΈ

Thanks, USPS.

Back on November 27th, I mailed a package from the post office in St. Bernard. I was sending two Lego City Advent Calendars out to our niece and nephew in Boston. I sent it Two-Day Priority Mail because I forgot about the box that was sitting on the sofa in our studio office…

It was expensive but that’s fine. It was still expected to arrive on November 30th…

If figured even if it was late, the package would still arrive on December 1st or 2nd. And everything would be just fine. I started tracking the package online because that’s the fun part of sending packages, tracking their journey. My package disappeared twice with no updates, once for four days and then for another eight days…

On December 2nd, the package was still in Cincinnati. When I checked the tracking number this morning, it looks like my package is finally going to be delivered today… SEVENTEEN DAYS LATER.

And our package was delivered today, December 14th at 5:26pm…

At least, the package finally arrived, and we’re really happy about that. But still… Seventeen. Days. Thanks, USPS. πŸ˜ πŸ˜‘πŸ€¬πŸ“¦πŸ“­πŸŒβ€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
