The rest of our Saturday.

It was a grey and overcast Saturday morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

They had both the panda bear and the train again today…

And they had lots of my new favorite BBQ Chicken flavor ramen…

There were some great balloons this morning too…

We stopped to get our Saturday morning Mad Llama coffee

We had this shelf in our kitchen…

Genifer ordered a new sideboard to go in its place…

It took a bit to put together but it turned out pretty nice…

It took too long for Oscar. He was out…

For lunch, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to check out Northside’s new taco shop called Taqueria 251. It was pretty good stuff.

And good evening from Northside…

And from our backyard…

This evening, we soldiered through the rest of The Reckoning on Netflix. It was just plain bad. There wasn’t one likable character in the entire series. So not good. At all. It was the only down part of a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚πŸŽˆβ˜•οΈβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜€οΈπŸ₯‘πŸ”β€οΈ

Mondays are always hard.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

Not a cloud in the sky all day long. And then we just crashed out…

We just blew through both The Five and Safe. Both of the series were based on books by Harlan Coben and both were really outstanding. They had so many twists and turns. We never would have guessed the ending in either series. They were sooo good.

And that was another Monday in the books. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop

He was so cute and so fuzzy in these photos. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸΎβ€οΈ

I’m really bad at painting.

The trees colors are starting to change up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get Friday morning coffee…

And good evening from Northside…

We had delicious ramen noodles for dinner tonight…

We’ve been working on staining our new backyard fence

It turns out I’m not very good at painting at all…

Thank goodness it’s Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸœβ€οΈ

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

#TBT Pause for paws.

A bunch of photos of Milan have popped up in my Timehop lately…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

This cute photo of Oscar also popped up in my Timehop…

As well as these photos of the immortal cat…

It’s hard to believe that the cat has outlived Milan by almost five years. He’s gone but will never be forgotten.

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

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Home sweet home.

It’s nice to visit new places but it’s also really nice to be home…

And good evening from Northside…

It’s nice to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΎβ€οΈ
