It’s Skyline time!

This morning it was really overcast, dark and rainy. Good morning from Northside…

But by lunchtime, the sun was out…

We ran over to St. Bernard for lunch and we saw this funny looking truck…

We picked up some Skyline for lunch…

It’s Skyline time!

Skyline is so good. Genifer had a deluxe burrito. I had a 5-way and two cheese coneys while I finished up my work for the week. And then it was overcast again when we went on our evening week…

Good evening from Northside…

We shared our Cinnabon cheesecake we got with our lunch…

Then we headed upstairs for the night and we finished Collateral: Limited Series on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Just up the road?!

It was another rainy, grey, overcast morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Penn Station for lunch today online…

And we ran up Hamilton Avenue into College Hill to pick it up…

Ohmigosh. It smelled so good on the way home. Genifer ordered her favorite chicken teriyaki…

And my favorite is the cheesesteak…

Penn Station is so good. And they have the best fries. When we lived downtown, there was a Penn Station just around the corner from us. We’d get it quite a bit. It was always delicious. Since we moved to Northside, the closest one to us is over on the campus of University of Cincinnati. But getting to it is a pain and the parking is next to impossible. We had no idea this other Penn Station was so close. Now we know this one is literally just up the road from us, we can start getting Penn Station more often again.

And good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished season three of Marcella on Netflix. And tomorrow, we have to find another movie or series to start watching. Finding a new series that we can get into is always the most difficult part. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Tickle Pickle Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we walked to Tickle Pickle for lunch…

When we got home, we were ready to eat our delicious Tickle Pickle. Genifer had her Eagles chicken sammich…

And I had my Bread Zepplin with extra cheese…

Today, we tried Tickle Pickle’s Goetta Van Fleet, their homemade mac & cheese topped with goetta and crushed BBQ Grippos…

We also got a side of their delicious mac & cheese…

And of course, we got milkshakes…

Good evening from Northside…

It turned out to be another pretty low-key day albeit it a very delicious one. We started watching Marcella on Netflix. “Despite marriage woes, a tragic loss, memory blackouts and her struggles as a mom, a London detective excels at what she does best: catching killers.” It’s another really good one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

And seen and noted…

Urban Artifact + Kitchen Factory.

Good morning from Northside…

Day 20 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Good evening from Northside…

Shannon ordered us some Urban Artifact beers for Christmas. This evening we ran over to UA to pick up our order. We were really excited to see what she got us…

And there’s our order…

On our way back home, we stopped to pick up dinner from The Kitchen Factory

When we got home with our dinner, the sunset looked so pretty from our backyard…

And tben it was back to our dinner from Kitchen Factory…

Genifer ordered their Veggie Meatball Hoagie…

I ordered the Baked Chicken Pesto Hoagie…

We both ordered the pasta salad as our side. And it came in a condiment container…

It was less of a side and more of a mouthful of pasta salad. Still, it was really good. We just wished there was more of it. We also ordered a side of their Famous Vegan Mac & Cheese…

Our dinner was sooo good. The hoagies were amazing! We’ll definitely be ordering from Kitchen Factory again. We’ll have to order a couple of their pizzas sometime as well.

Genifer made some incredible seven-layer bars for dessert…

Now that our bellies are full, let’s take a look to see what Shannon got us…

Wow! Those sound like some delicious beers! We placed them under our Christmas tree. And we can’t wait to try them! Thanks, Shannon!

We’ve been watching Mindhunter on Netflix. It’s about the origins of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit in the late ’70s. It’s been a really good show so far.

And we had a really good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A Wednesday NYPD Pizza party!

There were more altocumulcus clouds hovering over Northside this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was time for day nine of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The sun actually came out today…

And then we had the ultra rare Wednesday NYPD Pizza party

We ordered a large Station House supremiumโ„ข pizza…

And Nightsticks with extra cheese…

NYPD Pizza parties are so good. Especially on Wednesdays. They never happen on Wednesdays. And after we were done eating all our pizza, we headed upstairs…

We watched Michigan thump Toledo and Xavier thump Oklahoma. Both teams won by exactly 20 points. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

NYPD + MNUFC.

Good morning from Northside…

I’ve been having hot chocolate almost every morning. Most of the time, it’s in one of our #TeamFiona mugs

Once I had my cocoa, it was time for day three of my Lego City Advent Calendarโ€ฆ

The Lego City Advent Calendar has been pretty cool so far.

Good evening from Northside…

And tonight, we had an NYPD Pizza party!

It’s been a minute since we’ve had an NYPD Pizza party

We ordered cheese garlic bread but they gave us an order of Nightsticks instead and they were really good…

And then we had to get upstairs…

Because tonight was the second round of the MLS Cup Playoffs. My Minnesota United was playing away to Sporting Kansas City, the top-seed in the Western Conference…

United scored three goals in twelve minutes, and knocked Sporting out of the MLS Cup playoffs of the MLS Cup Playoffs…

Minnesota United will play Seattle Sounders on Monday in the Western Conference finals…

What a match! It was an amazing end to a terrific day. But any day that includes an NYPD Pizza party and a MNUFC Loons win is a really good day on our blog. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ•โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Our Election Day.

We got up extra early this morning to walk over to North Presbyterian Church on Hamilton Avenue in Northside so Genifer could vote…

I dropped off my absentee ballot at the Board of Elections last week.

The polls opened at 6:30am this morning. We got there just a little before 6:00am and Genifer was second in line…

As we stood waiting for the polls to open, the line steadily grew behind us…

Genifer got to cast her vote. And we were over at Sidewinder to get coffee by 6:45am…

Sidewinder had cinnamon rolls this morning too…

My office was closed today for the election so everyone could vote. And Genifer had a pretty light day with her work. So later, we walked back down Hamilton Avenue to Blue Jay for lunch…

Genifer had a five-way and fries for lunch…

And I had Blue Jay’s chicken tender sammich with cheese…

I love that dang sammich. Blue Jay is so good. We don’t eat there enough.

We enjoyed the rest of our Election Day by not doing much of anything. We played in our backyard for a bit…

And we went on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, I ate a carry out five-way and a cheese coney I got from Blue Jay…

This evening we went out of our way to avoid any news about the Election. I don’t think we’re going to know the final results any time soon. I just hope everything turns out for the best and that competent adults start running the country again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ—ณ๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Our new dehumidifier.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we worked on reorganizing our basement…

Now we just need more shelves. And we finally got to turn on our new super industrial strength dehumidifier…

If we turned the dehumidifier in too soon, it could have pulled the moisture out the setting concrete and it wouldn’t have cured correctly…

And that would probably have been bad…

But omigosh, I was so excited to finally get to turn this thing on. And it drains straight into our new sump pump. It’s all so excited. We’re hoping the dehumidifier pulls all the moisture out of the air in our basement and eliminates that old musty basement smell. But we finally get to see how it works.

Later, we ventured out to West Chester, and we picked up Sonic for lunch…

We took our Sonic over and had lunch with Geri. Sonic was surprisingly good. We had cheeseburger meals. And Sonic also has corn dogs. I got a couple of corn dogs for a snack later. Gosh, I love corn dogs. And corn dongs can be surprisingly hard to find. The corn dogs from Sonic were really good.

Back in Northside, it’s starting to look a bit like autumn…

It was so gloomy, grey and overcast all day today…

And good evening from Northside…

This evening we planned to watch my Minnesota United play Dallas but the match was postponed due to positive tests for COVID-19. So we watched FC Cincinnati lose 1-0 to Toronto instead. FC|C is really tough to watch play anymore. It seems all they do is defend, eleven guys behind the ball and then park the bus. It makes for really boring soccer. And I’m really surprised they could pull over seven minutes of highlights out of this match.

But other than that, it was a pretty good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿƒโšฝ๏ธ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

Starting the holiday weekend with Tickle Pickle.

Tonight, we started our long four-day holiday weekend by walking to pick up dinner from Tickle Pickle

Genifer’s new favorite is the Eagles chicken sammich…

And I my go-to Buns ‘n Roses burger with extra cheese…

It’s so messy but soooo good! We also shared a side of their mac & cheese because it’s just plain awesome. And of course, we also got milkshakes. Genifer loves the vegan Oreo Speedwagon, made with vegan coconut milk ice cream. And I got my usual Flan Halen dairy strawberry shake. We love Tickle Pickle. It was a delicious way to start the long holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
