But first coffee.

Thankfully, Biggby’s drive-thru is still open for the time being…

Would a weekend without delicious Biggby beverages even be a weekend? 😀☕️❤️

I’m sure COVID-19 keep us from getting our weekend morning coffee at some point.

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

Two years ago.

Two years ago today, I had my six-week post-operation checkup from my first total hip replacement surgery…

Everything is still feeling really good with my new hips. It’s pretty bonkers that it’s been over two years since I had my first hip replaced. It’s also pretty bonkers that all that hardware is in my body.  😀🏥❤️

Panda Express.

So believe it or not, we’ve never eaten at a Panda Express. This afternoon we found ourselves out on the Westside at Western Hills Plaza, and we decided to try Panda Express for the very first time…

It was odd trying a place for the first time during a pandemic. There were blue tape lines on the floor so everyone knew how far to stay apart…

It was our turn to order. And there were so many delicious looking options…

We learned that at Panda Express you choose your meal size: a bowl (1 entree & 1 side), plate (2 entrees & 1 side) OR bigger plate (3 entrees & 1 side). And then you choose your entree and side. Panda Express has a bunch of different entree choices…

Genifer ordered a bowl of the Kung Pao Chicken with fried rice. I ordered a plate with Orange Chicken and Mushroom Chicken with fried rice…

Panda Express was really, really good stuff. I think we just found a new place to stop for lunch whenever we find ourselves over on the Westside. 😀🐼🥡❤️

There still aren’t any paper products.

We stopped at Target out on the Westside this morning and there were still no paper products like toilet paper, paper towels or even napkins. Just empty shelves…

We didn’t need any. Thankfully, we had a good supply built up well before there was ever the thought of a pandemic. It’s just crazy to me just how little is available now. People are pretty ridiculous with their hoarding. 😠🧻❤️

Today felt like spring.

Yesterday was the first day of spring. But today actually felt like spring. While I was working from home in our office, I had the windows open and there was such a really wonderful breeze. Mack kept standing on the step and looking out the window…

I’d try to get him to go outside and he would run upstairs to the third floor…

He’d just sit at the top of the stairs and  look at me. I guess he just wanted to enjoy the breeze and look out the windows. Oscar hung out with Genifer all day. 😀🐾❤️

I really enjoyed my first week of working from home. Everything worked really well.
I think I could get used to this.

It’s what’s for dinner.

Even though today was the first day of spring, Genifer made us another incredible Autumn Sausage Veggie & Apple Sheet Pan for dinner tonight…

It’s one of our favorite dinners regardless of the season. I could easily eat it once a week. It’s so good. 😀❤️

And we made it through the entire winter without any significant snowstorms at all.

Pause for paws.

Oscar hung out in Mack’s crate all day today while we were in the office…

I guess he was thinking that since he never really has to go in a crate that he would hang out in one today. He’s a little silly head. 😀🐾❤️

Also working from home: Day 3 is in the books. It was another really successful, good day without any real problems.

The Big Dipper is back.

The Big Dipper is back at Pizza Hut for a limited time. And after a little badgering, Genifer finally agreed to let me order it for dinner. And tonight was the night! I ordered it from the Pizza Hut in St. Bernard and we ventured out to pick it up…

Odd enough, this photo from the first time I ever had Pizza Hut’s Big Dipper is my most favorited photo on Flickr. Kind of weird that’s the photo people liked the most.

I was so excited as I loaded it into our car, and it took up almost all of the entire back seat. We hadn’t had a Big Dipper in almost five years…

And there it is…

The Big Dipper…

It was really good stuff. But holy geez, that’s a lot of dippers. 😀🍕❤️

And now, I’m good on Big Dipper for another five years.

Working from home: Day 2.

Mack seems to have taken to me working from home pretty well…

He just crashed out on his dog bed in the office for most of the day while I worked on my stuff. He’s been really good hanging out with me so far. Genifer is at home too on Tuesdays. Oscar got to hang out with her all day. Oscar probably likes hanging out with her better because he gets to hang out with Genifer in one of the bigger rooms away from Mack for most of the day. 😀🐾❤️

Working from home isn’t too bad at all. Everything is going pretty smooth so far.
