Look up in the sky.

I took this photo with my Instagram on my way home from a cold, snowy and grey downtown this evening…

Later, I ran the same photo through some filters and made some adjustments in Flickr, and actually like this result better…

By the time I got home to Northside, the sun was out. And the sky was really pretty from our backyard…

So I guess, a ‘good evening from Northside’ is also in order.Β πŸ˜€β˜οΈβ›…οΈπŸ“·β€οΈ

A snowy day in downtown Cincinnati.

It was cold and snowy day downtown Cincinnati this afternoon. The forecast called snow squalls throughout the day. I don’t know that we everΒ really got snow squalls. But it would snow for a bit. And then the sun would come out. And then it would get all grey and start to snow again. It was a really interesting day as far as the weather goes. I grabbed a video of the snow on my Instagram as well as a couple of videos of the snow with my little Polaroid CUBE because I found myself just staring out my window at work watching the snowflakes fall…

It’s nothing like the snow they’ve been getting out in Boston but still pretty “brrrr.” nonethlesss.Β πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

Mondays are better with pizza.

Mondays are better when they end with pizza. Especially when it’s a huge half cheese and half pepperoni pizza and NoNo BBQ wings from Chameleon pizza

YUM! And all of a sudden, the Monday right after the spring forward portion of daylight savings time isn’t so bad.Β πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Preseason FC Cincinnati soccer.

FC Cincinnati finally returned to Nippert Stadium this afternoon in preseason form. FC Cincy was playing host to the USL’s Sacramento Republic FC. Did I mention it was at Nippert Stadium? Last Saturday, FC|C played host to Nashville SC at University of Cincinnati’s Gettler Stadium.Β Gettler Stadium is the home for both the UC men’s and women’s soccer teams, as well as the men’s and women’s outdoor track and field teams. We had tickets to last week’s friendly but skipped it and adopted a dog instead. With today’s friendly being played in the friendly confines of beautiful Nippert Stadium, how could we stay away? FC Cincinnati soccer is back at Nippert! Let’s go!

In what has become a prematch tradition dating back to the beginning of last season, we stopped at Mac’s Pizza PubΒ in Clifton before the match to get some lunch and watch UC’s basketball game against MemphisΒ in the semi-finals of the American Athletic Conference tournament. Mac’s was packed full of Bearcat fans cheering on their basketball team. I don’t really care for the Bearcats basketball program much at all but the atmosphere was pretty infectious, the food was just great as always and the draft beers were only $1 during the Bearcats basketball game…

Just look at that monster of a burger…

After the Bearcat’s punched their ticket to the championship game, we walked over to Nippert Stadium for FC|C preseason soccer…

We spent the first half standing in the sun behind The Bailey. It felt really nice when you were in the sun…

We spent the second half of the match watching from behind our season ticket seats. And it was pretty darn chilly when you weren’t in the sun. FC CINCINNATI GOAL!!!

Both Genifer and I missed FC Cincy’s goal. And there wasn’t any video so no replay…

Bummer. Did I mention it was pretty chilly when you weren’t in the sun?

And the match ended 2-1 to Sacramento

It was really great to be back at Nippert watching some FC Cincinnati soccer again.The team looked pretty good. With FC|C signing 17 new players in the offseason and with only 9 returning players, I imagine there are still so kinks to be worked out trying to get the team toΒ gel. We can’t wait for FC Cincinnati’s home opener on April 7th at 7pm against Lousiville City FC. Hopefully, it’ll be a little bit warmer in a few weeks. But I’m not going to hold my breath.Β πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ”ΆπŸ”·β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Oscar was wearing one of my scarves this morning…

Meanwhile, Mack was crashed out in our guest bedroom…

That is all.Β πŸ˜€πŸΆπŸΎβ€οΈ

Mack’s first vet appointment.

There are a handful of vets that offer a free first veterinary check-up within the first seven days of adoption of a pet from SPCA. This afternoon we got Mack into the vet for his first check-up. We took him to Monfort Heights Animal Clinic on North Bend Road. They were so nice! And we’re happy to report that they said Mack is in great health with no issues. He got his rabies shot updated and everything else was pretty much good to go. It was a really big day for him. Being in the car really freaks him out. It’s like he thinks we’re taking him back to SPCA Northside. When we got home, he crashed out pretty hard and was all tuckered out for the rest of the evening…

If only he was this chill every evening.Β πŸ˜€πŸΆπŸΎβ€οΈ

Seen and noted.

What the what?! There just aren’t words.Β πŸ˜€πŸ–ΌοΈπŸ–ŒοΈπŸŽ¨πŸš—β€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

Here’s what it actually looked like this morning fromΒ our third-floor bedroom window…

And here’s what it looked like in my head, knowing that I was going to run it through a couple of filters and make a bunch of adjustments in Flickr…

Good morning from Northside on the last Friday morning before we spring forward with Daylight Savings Time late on Saturday night.Β πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made another one of the delicious Prep+Pared meal kits for dinner tonight. This meal kit was forΒ coconut curry chicken with lemongrass chutney, toasted rice and green beans

And this one was delicious too! We’ve really enjoyed all the Kroger Pre+Pared meal kits from Kroger, except for one.Β πŸ˜€πŸ₯₯πŸ”πŸ›β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

It’s been a pretty big adjustment having a new friend living in the house with us…

But we’re trying the best we can, and it’s been going okay so far. Mack just has a lot of energy and play in him.Β πŸ˜€πŸΆπŸΎβ€οΈ
