A morning trip to Trade Joe’s.

Good morning from Northside…

We ventured out to Trader Joe’s this morning before work, and on the way across town the sunrise sky was so beautiful…

It’s been a minute since we’ve been to Trader Joe’s…

And Mad Llama is right around the corner from Trader Joe’s (kind of)…

When we got home, we finished up our work week before having Trader Joe’s delicious Mandarin Orange Chicken for dinner…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we all crashed out…

It was another long week. Thank goodness it’s Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

A low-key Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We’re always up and moving pretty early. We don’t really sleep our days away, even on the weekends.. We ran over to the grocery early this morning. We like to get in and out before it gets too busy…

Kroger had both the panda AND train today in the international aisle…

Afterward, we stopped for our Mad Llama coffee

And later, we had an NYPD Pizza party with french fries…

Good night from Northside…

We had a very low-key, relaxing Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

Apparently, the construction crew doesn’t work on Fridays because it is very quiet on our street this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to get Sidewinder to get coffee…

Our little shrub in our front yard had a couple of pretty little autumn looking flowers blooming on it…

We walked to the Helltown Bazaar Workshop

It was their last day. They were going out of business tomorrow…

It’s not super surprising that they are closing their doors. They had really strange, very sporadic hours. Like Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 to 3. No real wonder they went out of business.

We got a vintage coffee mug and some new masks. Today was National Quesadilla Day. Then we continued on to Django Western Taco to pick up dinner…

We shared a jerk chicken quesadilla and some tacos and chips & salsa…

We also got some churros and caramel sauce…

And a slice of lemon cheesecake…

And good evening from Northside…

It was a great Friday in Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ท๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

International Space Station Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery. They always have different balloons

I like looking at the balloons. And then we got our Mad Llama coffee

And we got our delicious Mad Llama bagel turkey sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sammich on an Asiago cheese bagel…

Tomorrow, they’re going to start working on the water mains on our street again. I went out to move the Jetta up to the end of the street and it wouldn’t start. Again. I just had a new battery put in it the last time they worked on our street. I think it’s probably the alternator but we’ll see. This morning, AAA came out to take it to one of their repair centers…

And there it goes. I hope it isn’t too expensive.

Oscar was just hanging out…

It’s Sunday. We must be going to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

We got to watch the crazy end of the Cowboys game

Taft’s is such great stuff. And today, they had fried mushrooms….

The sky was so pretty this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

We asked the two people standing on the hill what they were watching for, and they said the International Space Station was just about to fly over

And suddenly, there it was…

It was just a little pinhole of light. It almost just looked a star but it was really moving quickly across the sky…

And there it went…

How neat was that? Just being in the right place at the right time.

It was a really cool way to end a great weekend…

Next week is probably going to be another crazy one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

It’s starting to feel like autumn.

Here’s another photo of our new little side yard…

And our new little garden hose post…

Good morning from Northside…

The sky was so hazy again this morning…

We walked to get coffees from Sidewinder

When we were out in Duck, I got this huge tub of cheese balls. And today with lunch, I ate the very last cheese ball…

It was kind of hazy all day long…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made the autumn sausage veggie & apple sheet pan.
It’s one of our favorites…

And it’s actually starting to feel like autumn again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‚โค๏ธ

We have a side yard now!

This morning we woke up early to get over to Lowe’s…

We wanted to get a big drum of stain for our brand new fence. It’s so exciting. After we chose our stain, we headed over to Mad Llama for our Saturday morning coffee…

I bet about half of our runs to Lowe’s and the grocery have just thinly veiled excuses to run across town to get Mad Llama coffee because it is so good…

When we our new fence was installed, we had them move our gate up to the street side of our side door. It gave us a little side yard space that is actually usable now. This afternoon we worked on cleaning up on newly formed little side yard space…

When they ripped up our street to replace the water main, they left a pile of the bricks on the side of our street. It turns those bricks were the original cobblestone bricks from back in the day when Beech Hill was a brick cobblestone street. We grabbed as many of those bricks as we could and stacked them by our air conditioner on the side of our house. We weren’t sure what we were going to be using them for until today. We used them to line the path in our little side yard…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

With our new fence…

And our new little side yard…

It’s a sign.

When we were walking back to our hotel, Genifer noticed this sign for a coffee shop across Sixth Street. And even with all the thousands of times that we walked down Sixth Street when we lived downtown, we couldn’t remember if this was an old sign or a new sign for a coffee shop that’s coming soon…

It got us talking about all the times we walked down Sixth Street to Fountain Square and all the fun we had downtown. And how much it’s changed and how much it’s still the same. And how much we like our Sidewinder Coffee in Northside.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ
