Why are Mondays always so grey?

It was another overcast and grey Monday morning. And they were already getting to work on our street…

Good morning from Northside…

They were cutting our street this morning…

Y0u kn ow what brightens up a Monday? Grilled cheeses and chicken nuggets…

Guess what? when we took the dogs for their evening walk, it was still overcast…

Good evening from Northside…

When they were working on the street earlier, they must have pushed the dumpster up into the empty lot at the end of our street…

And that’s actually a pretty good thing because it had been creeping further and further out into the street. And we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ₯ͺ❀️

An afternoon in Waynesville.

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on our street this morning…

Early this afternoon, we headed up to Waynesville

They were having a little street faire that we wanted to check out and we wanted to wander in and out of the all the little shop in the “antique capital of the MIdwest…”

Waynesville has a lot of very historic buildings…

We were going to eat at Stone House Tavern

So we walked back down to the end of the street faire to one of the food trucks…

They had Canadian Poutine…

Believe it or not, we’ve never had poutine before. And it was delicious…

We stopped for a espresso milk shake…

When we were done shopping, we ordered a pizza to take home with us…

And Genifer got and coffee and I got a strawberry smoothie for the ride home…

Good evening from Northside…

They didn’t make much progress on our street…

The pizza was delicious! Waynesville was a lot of fun. We were looking for old paintings to hang in our dining room. We found a few paintings to get us started. It was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸ›οΈπŸ–ΌοΈπŸ•β€οΈ

A tour of Northside eats.

The sunrise was pretty this morning…

We had to move our cars this morning because they were supposed to start working on our street…

Before we moved our cars, we stopped for coffee at Sidewinder

We found parking spots for both of our cars around the corner on Pullan Street…

And then we took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

I got a cinnamon roll for breakfast at Sidewinder…

At lunchtime, there still wasn’t any work taking place on our street…

We walked to back over to Morsel & Nosh for lunch…

We saw on their Instagram that they had a Cubano sammich as a special today. And it looked delicious

It was every bit as delicious as it looked. We love our lunches for Morsel & Nosh.

And for dinner, we walked down to Gulow Street

We met our neighbor friends at Gulow Street. And while we were there, we ran into our other neighbors and got to talk to them for a while. Now we have two neighbor friends on our street.

Good night from Northside…

We love our neighborhood. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ₯ͺπŸ”πŸΎβ€οΈ

There’s going to be road work.

Good morning from Northside…

It looks like they are going to be working on our street for the next couple of days…

Good evening from Northside…

I wonder what the plan is for our street. I guess we’ll find out soon. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§β€οΈ

Hello October.

It’s pretty crazy to me that today is the first day of October…

For still being in the middle of a global pandemic, stuck at home and not really being able to do much of anything, this year certainly has flown right by. I would like my 2020 back, please. I think we should all get to take a mulligan for this year and get to try 2020 over again next year.

They weren’t working on our street this morning. So we got to go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street and say…

Good morning from Northside!

This is what the street looked like in front of our house this morning…

But a little while later, they filled it in with asphalt…

And good evening from Northside…

We ordered hoagie sammiches from NYPD

And after we stuffed our faces full of delicious NYPD hoagie sammiches and french fries, we played ball in our backyard and we watched the beautiful sunset clouds….

It’s just really nuts that it’s already October. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺ🍟❀️

T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒˆπŸΎβ€οΈ

A day of pretty skies.

The clouds were really pretty when we woke up this morning…

But it was getting pretty gray when we were taking the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on our street again this morning…

I’ve really enjoyed watching all the machines from our WyzeCams

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. We had the Stroganoff Pork Meatballs with potatoes and peas again…

The stroganoff sauce was so good we had to have this meal again. And it was another really delicious dinner the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

It was sprinkling a little bit as we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

The sky was really pretty this evening…

It was a really beautiful blue-gray.

And the sunset was even prettier from our backyard…

It was just a day of very pretty skies. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈβ€οΈ

We watched Enola Holmes on Netflix tonight. It was cute and pretty good.

Constructing Northside, finally.

The day got off to an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

They started working in front of our house again this morning…

There was a lot going on for quick second on our street…

And that’s the progress they made today…

Good evening from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were all tuckered out…

It’s not everyday construction equipment rips up your street, let alone your front yard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸΎβ€οΈ

Or maybe tomorrow?

They showed up bright and early to start working on our street again…

And the drilling started in front of our house…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we popped our flowers out of the ground…

It was well after 1pm and they still weren’t working on our house yet…

And they must have accidentally hit the water main…

Because all of a sudden, our street was a river. Again

And that was all they managed to get accomplished today.

Good evening from Northside…

Our street is a patchwork quilt of steel plates right now…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Stroganoff Pork Meatballs with potatoes and peas…

It was another really delicious dinner. The stroganoff sauce has always been one of my favorites. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

Maybe they’ll work on our house tomorrow. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸŒŠπŸœβ€οΈ

Constructing Northside?

Can you believe today is already the first day of fall?

Good morning from Northside…

It looked like they were going to make it to our house to start working on our water line this morning…

So we pushed our rocks back and pulled up our bricks…

But by this afternoon, they still hadn’t got to our house yet…

It seems like our house is littered with clusters of dog toys…

We had delicious Ramen noodles for dinner tonight…

I stumbled upon these incredible Korean BBQ Ramen noodles at the grocery. They’re so tasty and good, and a little spicy.

Good evening from Northside…

Maybe they’ll start working in front of our house tomorrow. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸœβ€οΈ
