Cheeseburgers & thunderstorms.

Good morning from Northside…

We went to get Biggby Coffee

Biggby Coffee is so good. We like it a lot.

We had to run some errands up north today, and afterward, we found ourselves out in Lebanon. We stopped to fill up our gas tank at this Marathon station…

It was just across the street from this train…

And we were presented with an unusual fuel option…

๐Ÿค”

We decided to just go with the plus. On our back home, we stopped at Quatman Cafe in Mason for lunch. We’ve been to the Quatman in Norwood a couple of times but we’ve never been to the one in Mason before…

Quatman always has a daily special. Today’s special was a cheeseburger, fries or onion rings and a drink for $8. Two, please…

Those onion rings look delicious…

And those burgers were as delicious as they were big. And they were huge! I don’t know why we don’t do to Quatman in Norwood more. Their burgers are terrific and it’s really inexpensive to eat there. We really need to change that and eat more Quatmans.

Quatman was sooo good. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk around the block. There were some ominous looking storm clouds that had just passed us…

But as soon as we got around the block and up to the top of the hill at the end of our street, it started raining…

And when we got home and looked out in the backyard, it was pouring…

It seemed fitting that it would rain on the end of our weekend. It was a great Monday. It was a really great long weekend. And now we only have to work four days this week to get to our next weekend!

A Thursday that feels like Friday.

Today is Thursday but it’s kind of our Friday. We both have four-day holiday weekends for the Fourth of July. Let’s get this party started. Good morning from Northside…

We walked to get Sidewinder Coffee this morning…

We went on the rare lunchtime dog walk around the block…

And we went on our evening walk as well…

Good evening from Northside…

And to celebrate the start of our long holiday weekend, we started our weekend with an NYPD Pizza party

We got boneless wings and a large Station House pizza with banana peppers…

NYPD’s pizza is sooo good. And there was an almost full moon tonight…

Bring on the long holiday weekend! #MURICA ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

Coasting into the weekend.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Kroger to get a few groceries. I noticed these crazy striped peppers in the produce section. I’ve never seen anything like them before…

And of course, we stopped at Biggby Coffee…ย 

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this vegetable tikka masala over rice…

For just a little pouch you warm up and serve over rice, it was really outstanding. Next time we’re at Whole Foods, we definitely going to have to get some more. It was really surprisingly good for how easy it was to prepare.

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty good Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ›โค๏ธ

Happy Father’s Day.

Today was Father’s Day. We hope all the dads had a wonderful day. Genifer The dogs got me an awesome new BBQ utensil set and a super-cool new Reds t-shirt for Father’s Day. It was really very unexpected. She’s the best wife. They’re the best dogs.

Good morning from Northside…

One of the little bushes we planted in our front yard is full of little blossoms…

We ran over to Kroger this morning…

Someone bought the train that was full of jello cups in the International aisle. And now there is this jello cup filled panda bear…

Every time we go to Kroger in Oakley, this baby cart is in the cart corral…

After we were done at the grocery, we got the Audi washed at Mike’s Carwash…

And while we were over in that part of town, we had to stop for our weekend edition of Biggby Coffee

We were so mad. We forgot to bring our reusable straws today…

But our drinks were delicious as always!

Laters, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

Taft’s was having a Father’s Day special…

A large short rib pizza, caesar salad, a loaf of cheesy bread, and a growler for just $45?

YES PLEASE! I like watching the world go by through Taft’s garage doors…

While we were waiting for our pizza to arrive at our table, we watched the monsoon that had just started dropping sheets of water out of nowhere…

And there it is! Our delicious pizza…

We just ate on the pizza. We took home the cheesy bread, caesar salad, our growler and about half of the pizza…

When we were getting ready to head out, I super long train started rolling by Taft’s too…

Trains are so cool. I could sit and watch the trains go by all day.

On our way home, we stopped at Second Place for a bourbon slush…

When we walked the dogs, the asphalt in the parking lot atop the hill at the end of our street was steaming…

Good evening from Northside…

And we ended our weekend by hanging out in our backyard…

It was a really good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Dinosaurs & cheeseburgers.

I’ve started doing these posts on our blog that just sums up our entire day in one post. I like them especially on days where we don’t do a lot. But I’m really struggling with what to call them. I was just titling these posts things like “Our Friday.” but that’s as boring as what we actually did today.ย 

We both had today off work for Juneteenth. Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to start our day with some Biggby Coffee. On Fridays, it’s free shot Friday at Biggby. You get a extra shot of coffee in your drink… for FREE…

We ran to Whole Foods to get some groceries and we also swung through Home Goods…

And then we were pretty lazy for the rest of the day…

Until we went on a walk with the dogs. There were some really pretty clouds tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

After we dropped the dogs off at home, we kept walking…

Down to Tickle Pickle

For burgers and milkshakes to go…

Our burgers were delicious…

It was a great Friday with plenty of time for quiet reflection. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

It must be Thursday!

Before starting work this morning, we ran down to Camp Washington to get some coffee drinks from Sunny Blue Coffeehouse

Because it was customer appreciation Thursday again that means free turkey sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sammiches for everyone!

We love Sunny Blu Coffeehouse!

I stopped to peek at CampSITE again…

I find Camp Washington is such an intriguing little neighborhood. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

Reminder.

Tomorrow is free breakfast sandwich Thursday again at Sunny Blu Coffeehouse! Thursdays are my new favorite day. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

Another Tuesday.

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to get Sidewinder coffee this morning. They’ve made some progress on the Schaeperโ€™s Pharmacy mural at the corner Hamilton and Chase Avenuesโ€ฆ

And there was another mural around the corner on Chase Avenue…

Mmmm, Sidewinder Coffee…

Sidewinder coffee is so good…

On our way home, we saw more sidewalk chalk art

We walked back home and got all our work done. Later, Genifer made orange chicken for dinner and it was delicious…

Good evening from Northside…

It was another pretty good but relatively uneventful Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ

Our Friday morning.

Good morning from Northside…

Before I started work this morning, we ran to Kroger to get some groceries…

Kroger had restocked their Shining Stars

I noticed some more oddities while we were grocery shopping…

And then we went to Biggby for coffee…

And today we had a Biggby coupon for half off their Bragel breakfast sammiches…

What a great way to start a Friday before getting to work. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Sunny Blu Coffee is back!

We noticed on the social media that Sunny Blu Coffee had reopened after an extended hiatus during the COVID-19 shutdown. So before we started working this morning, we ran down to Camp Washington to start of the day with some delicious Sunny Blu…

On Thursday mornings from 7-9am is Sunny Blu customer appreciation. They were giving every customer a free turkey sausage egg and cheese croissant with purchase…

You can’t beat that! I’m so happy Sunny Blu is back open. Genifer had a caramel latte and I had an iced hot chocolate. Their stuff is sooo good.

On our way back to the car, I finally got to check out CampSITE

And when we got home, we tore into our free breakfast sammiches…

YUM! I know where we’ll be next Thursday if we don’t make it back over to Camp Washington before then. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ
