Happy 7-1!

Today is July 1st! Happy 7-1 to all that celebrate…

It was another rainy morning…

On our walk this morning, we only made it to the stop sign at end of street…

But when we went on our walk this evening, the sun was out…

Weather. Go figure.

Good evening from Northside…

We haven’t seen very many snails on our walks so far this year…

Our third and final HelloFresh dinner of the week was Pecan & Walnut Crusted Chicken with BBQ-spiced sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple…

Have we said that we really like the HelloFresh meals?

When we got upstairs, it started pouring again…

And now we have a long four-day holiday weekend…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Dang. Still more rain.

Good morning from Northside…

The sun was out and the skies were blue with wispy white clouds this morning but by lunch time it was pouring down rain…

Mack and Oscar were waiting patiently for me to finish up with work…

Good evening from Northside…

Our second HelloFresh meal for the week was Sheet Pan Pork Sausage & Pepper Flatbreads with Monterey Jack and mozzarella…

I just don’t know what to say. All the meals are so good.

After dinner, it started raining again…

And it kept raining all night. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸΎπŸ½οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Another grey Monday.

Why does it seem like every Monday so overcast and grey?

Good morning from Northside…

It started raining again this morning…

This airplane was flying east to west which was weird because we see a lot of planes over Northside but they all fly north and south, not east and west. It was kind of odd…

Good evening from Northside…

Mondays are just so bleh, especially when they are all rainy and grey. But these photos from my Timehop made today a little sunnier…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

A rainy Saturday morning.

It was raining again this morning…

The waterfall from the neighbors gutters was in full effect…

Oscar did not want to go out in the rain…

Eventually, the rain stopped long enough to go on a quick walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We didn’t have a big puddle on the side of our house…

We put together this little entryway table…

We got sammiches from NYPD Pizza for lunch…

NYPD is so good. After we were done eating the sun came out….

Good evening from Northside….

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

There was an almost a full moon tonight…

Today was also my 1100th Timehop in a row…

And there were photos of these two in my Timehop today…

We had a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸ₯ͺ🐾❀️

Friday night thunderstorm.

There were a bunch of ants on the sidewalk…

Good morning from Northside…

Hi Oscar…

And, Hi Mack…

Mack must have been trying to hide his new hedgehog toy from Oscar by putting it in the bedroom trash can…

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered an elevated dog cot for our back patio…

Oscar wasn’t real sure about it at first…

But I think he likes it now…

It was a very pretty evening…

But while we were sitting on our back patio this evening, out of nowhere we could hear lots of thunder but we couldn’t see any lightning or even dark storm clouds…

It was exact opposite of when we were out on the deck in the Outer Banks, and there was all sorts of the lightning but no thunder. Both were kinda odd. But we had a really good Friday.

Already three times this year.

As we were getting up and moving this morning, there was a loud pop that we could hear over our sound machine and then we lost power.

Oh. And it’s still grey and overcast…

Good morning from Northside…

On our way home from our walk, Duke Energy was already arriving on our street…

They had our power back on a little before 9 am. But I think this was already the third time we’ve lost power this year. And that’s a little worrisome. The Duke Energy website said there was an animal on the line. Poor squirrels.

Anyway, we have a lot of blooms in our front yard…

We had cheesy turkey wraps on the panini press for lunch …

The panini press has become one of my favorite little kitchen appliances.

After we finished our work day, we went on our walk and the sun was out!

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered El Taco Veloz through DoorDash…

Genifer gets the kids quesadilla with a side of beans and rice…

And I love their ground beef chimi…

El Taco Veloz is sooo good. I love that there is a service that will bring me a chimichanga whenever I really need one. What an amazingly wonderful world we live in.

If you look really close just above the leaf in the dirt, there was a little baby bird in the back corner of our backyard…

I don’t think the little bird had mastered flying yet, it would flap it’s wing but wouldn’t go anywhere. Eventually, it hopped through a gap in our fence where the side meets the back. Hopefully, it figures out how to fly pretty soon.

When we got upstairs, I was looking out our front window and I got the impression that tonight’s sunset might be really pretty…

I went back down to check it out in our backyard…

But it was just an okay sunset. But it was a really good day. We watched a couple more episodes of Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. And I’m super excited because the Euro Championship starts tomorrrow afternoon! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ«”β€οΈ

Another rainy day.

Guess what? It was overcast and raining again this morning…

It’s like we live in the Pacific Northwest or something…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar was getting so fuzzy…

He got a haircut today at Petsmart and now he looks so handsome…

We made it through our Wednesday and then it was time to walk the dogs again.

This is Chloe…

She lives down the street from us…

Hi Chloe!

Good evening from Northside…

It looked like there was another storm rolling in…

It also looked like Mack was watching the soccer game…

Meanwhile, Oscar was just using the footrest of one of our dining room table benches as a pillow…

It doesn’t look like the most comfortable pillow. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ

Hello June.

Good morning from Northside…

This letter to Northside was tacked to a streetlight on the next street over…

Across the street the sofa was gone…

Good evening from Northside…

We have more blooms in our front yard…

Even one of our little ground coverings has a bloom on it…

We started watching Ragnarok on Netflix. It’s pretty good so far. But it’s really hard to believe that it’s already June. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒΌπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Soccer Saturday with some yardwork.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s to get some stuff for our backyard…

We listened to the FA Cup final while we almost finished staining our fence…

But we ran out of stain. Again. And we put some little pea gravel down on the other side of the path in our side yard…

We walked to Tickle Pickle to pick up an early dinner…

I’m not certain but I think Tickle Pickle might have got a big new sign…

But they have fries now!

BAM!

And the fries were delicious…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll go get some more stain for our fence and some flowers for our side yard…

Later, we watched the ladies of Racing Louisville play to nil-nil draw…

And we watched Minnesota United snatch a 1-0 win in the 95th minute

It was a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ–ŒοΈπŸ”πŸŸβš½οΈβ€οΈ
