It’s Skyline time!

It was very pretty this morning. A little chilly but still a very pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We were pretty lazy this morning…

We went to St. Bernard to get some Skyline chili for lunch…

We used our #15 gift card that we won from a Skyline Chili virtual parachute drop on Twitter during one of the Xavier basketball games a while back…

That gift card didn’t last very long. It’s Skyline time!

Mmmm… Cheese coneys…

And we ordered a slice of Cinnabon cheesecake to share…

We ate our lunch, watched Arsenal beat Brighton & Hove Albion, puttered, and took the dogs on their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we watched a couple of terrible movies on Amazon Prime Video. Terrible. I don’t remember what they were called but they were so bad that I’m not even going to look them up to see what they were called. Ohmigosh. They were so bad. Movies, bad. But our day off was really good. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ­πŸ§€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Happy Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated the day after Christmas Day. It originated as a holiday to give gifts to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants, and the day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families. Today, it’s a great day of soccer from the UK. Early this morning, we watched Leicester rally twice to draw 2-2 with Manchester United

And we watched my Arsenal…

Arsenal lifted the funk they’ve been in recently with a 3-1 win over Chelsea

That’s two in the row for the Gunners. They actually looked like the formidable Arsenal of old today.

It was a very pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had stuffed mushrooms that we got at the grocery…

Stuffed mushrooms are delicious. And then we had a frozen oven pizza…

Later, we started watching Hinterland on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

We had a really good Boxing Day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βš½οΈπŸ„πŸ•β€οΈ

Special deliveries!

When we woke up this morning, we found Northside got a dusting of snow…

But there wasn’t much snow on the hill at the end of our street…

Time for Lego City Advent Calendar day 15…

Genifer ordered Chipotle delivery for lunch….

Chipotle was delicious. I hadn’t had Chipotle in forever.

Both Arsenal and Leicester played at the same time this afternoon. I kept an eye on both of the matches while I was working…

And both of my teams lost. Arsenal is really in a death spiral right now.

We got a couple of special deliveries today. The first package was from my parents…

And there was a wonderful box of Christmas cookies in their package…

There were so many delicious cookies in that box. We cant wait to try them all. And now we also have presents under our tree…

Thanks, mom & dad! Our second package was from TastesOfChicago.com

And inside were two Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas…

And two huuuuge chocolate chip cookies…

Thanks, JJVE! We can’t wait to try our pizzas and those cookies look terrific!

Later, we took the dogs around the block. It was kind of misty outside this evening…

We couldn’t even see the hill across the way on the other side of the highway…

The hill was just barely visible…

Good evening from Northside…

Today is my Timehop was this photo…

It’s interesting that when I saw this photo my mind went to a completely different place when I saw animal mask than when I saw this originally. And there was this one too…

That would have been the best white elephant gift ever. To this day, I still kick myself for not buying it.

Hi Oscar. He’s so fuzzy!

We had a great Wednesday. Thank you again for the wonderful Christmas gifts.

Two out of three isn’t bad.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to Target to do some shopping…

How cute are these bears? I love a bin of adorable bears…

And there was this adorable yeti stocking

Greetings from Antarctica…

I designed the eCommerce basic images for all the holiday Swiss Miss hot cocoa gift sets

Speaking of Swiss Miss, how long has there been Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa with Lucky Charms Marshmallows? It’s the first time I’ve ever seen this sorcery…

And speaking of cocoa, I love hot chocolate. It’s become my go-to drink whenever we go out to get coffee.

When we got home, it was time for day thirteen of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We had snacks for lunch today…

We watched Arsenal lose 1-0 to Burnley…

It was the first time since December 1959 that the Gunners have lost four consecutive matches at home. They are really not doing well this season. At the same time as the Arsenal match, Michigan was playing their Big Ten opener against Penn State and our Cowboys were playing in Cincinnati against the Bengals…

Both Michigan and Dallas won their games. I guess, two out of three isn’t so bad.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, I had one of my favorite snacks, Ritz crackers and peanut butter…

We finished season one of Black Spot. It’s a very odd show. Very good, very interesting, but very odd. We’ll start on season two tomorrow. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ›οΈπŸ“Ίβš½οΈπŸ€πŸˆβ€οΈ

Nice! You have a reward.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we ordered pizza from Taft’s Brewpourium. And we had accumulated some rewards…

Omigosh! Look at our Taft’s Brewpourium pizza feast…

I’m pretty sure Taft’s is my favorite pizza is all of Cincinnati. It’s so good.

Oscar was telling us it’s time to go on our evening walk…

And when we were walking the dogs, we noticed this…

That’s pretty darn creepy.

Good evening from Northside…

We hung this guy out on our back porch…

This afternoon I had to knock out a few things for work while I listened to Arsenal lose 1-0 to Leicester, and then we watched the Bengals come up short against the Browns.

This evening, we watched the Dodgers win the World Series. It’s a bummer. It would have been so neat for Tampa Bay teams to win the Stanley Cup and the World Series. This season will always have asterisk next to it for me. The Dodgers were the best team that money could buy over the course of a pandemic-shortened 60-game season. Personally, I liked it much better when the Dodgers would spend all that money year after year and and then come up short. That was great. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸΎβš½οΈπŸˆβšΎοΈβ€οΈ

Burger King and some whaaaat?

Good morning from Northside…

We were so lazy today. We laid around all morning. Finally, we started to get hungry and ventured out of the house. On our way to get lunch, we stopped to get gas in Finneytown…

And there was this sticker on our pump…

And then it was onto the Home of the Whopper. We ordered a BK feast through the Burger King App…

Usually, Burger King is reserved only for road trips. But it just sounded really good today. And we ordered a bunch so we’d have snack for later.

I’m just going to leave these scores here without comment…

😳😬😲 What makes it even more nuts is when you combine today’s Liverpool and United results with last weekend’s thumping of City by Leicester…

It brings me great joy whenever United or Liverpool lose. And to have them both great thumped on the same day, just makes for a really great Sunday. Now I have a couple of matches to go back and watch to see just what the heck happened.

Good evening from Northside…

And we finished our Sunday with ball in our backyard until it got too dark…

We had a very nice, lazy and relaxing Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ‘‘πŸ“Ίβš½οΈβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Just hanging out with Mack this morning watching my two very favorite English Premier League teams play each other…

I’ve loved Arsenal for the last thirty years. They’re my favorite soccer team of all-time. Hands down. When Leceister City won promotion to EPL back in 2014, I decided the Foxes would be my bottom of the table team. I would cheer Arsenal to battle for championships and pull for Leceister to stay up in the top flight.

Imagine my shock when my lower-level team wins the Premier League championship the very next season in 2015/16. And so far this season, Leceister is sitting up in third behind Liverpool and Manchester City and my “top of the table team” is floundering in sixth place.

Leicester continued their great form and beat Arsenal today 2-0. πŸ˜€πŸΎβš½οΈβ€οΈ
