A day full of optimism.

Good morning from Northside…

We made tacos for lunch…

This afternoon, Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States, and declared that “democracy has prevailed.” Kamala Harris made history as the first female vice-president, and the first Black person and person of South Asian descent to hold the position. And where we are a deeply divided nation in the midst of crises arguably greater than any time before in our history, there was an optimism and a feeling of hope that had been missing for the last four years. I thought this was pretty funny…

I like gleefreshing. ๐Ÿค—

Good evening from Northside…

We had cheese tortellini for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread…

And Genifer made deep dish cookies for dessert…

I put some caramel sauce on my cookie and ice cream cup…

This evening, we watched Sightless on Netflix. It was pretty okay. But today was a pretty great day. And all of a sudden, there’s hope again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿช๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

And today was the Greatest Palindrome Ever…

A 43-6 scoring run?!

It was another overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

But it turned out to be a pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This was Italian Romano Pork Meatloaf with Parmesan broccoli and red peppersโ€ฆ

And add some extra dust cheese…

It was another really delicious meal. All the meatloaf dinners we’ve tried have been outstanding. This was yet another meal that would have gone really well with garlic bread. But I’ve been told that not every meal needs to have garlic bread with it. Still, we like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

We watched Michigan run riot on Wisconsin. At one point in the second half, Michigan was up by 40 points courtesy of a stretch when the Wolverines outscored the Badgers 43-6

And they’re only going to get better next season…

And five years ago, Michigan beat then #3 Maryland

โ€œWho’s got it better than us?โ€ Hail! GO BLUE! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธใ€ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

We found a new vet.

It’s another grey and overcast Monday…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer had to go into her office today. And this morning our third-floor WyzeCam captured a fire truck on our street for a moment…

We’ve been looking for a new vet because we were getting tired of the one we had been going to up in College Hill. And Mack is still not great in the car. He’s getting better. But he’s still not great. Genifer found Dr. Mike’s Mobile Veterinary Service on the interwebs. And they came right to our house…

They were great! They looked over our guys. Checked out Mack’s ears, Oscar’s cough and knee. Everything was good. They gave us home remedies to try for Mack’s ears. And the allergy medicine the dogs take was a lot cheaper from Dr. Mike. I think we just found a new vet!

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had vegetable Tikka Marsala for dinner tonight…

It’s so good and tasty. We really like it a lot. And Genifer made deep dish cookies again for dessert with little ice cream party cups…

Tonight, we started watching Lupin on Netflix. And we made it through another Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿš’๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿช๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

And this is totally us, especially when we’re working from home…

Have you tried The Fiamma?!

After the Arsenal’s FA Cup match this afternoon, we headed over to get some pizza at Taft’s Brewpourium

Taft’s had Hazelnut Latte, their coffee stout made with Cincinnati’s own Deeper Roots coffee, on draft…

We ordered The Fiamma again

And we tried Taft’s cheesy bread…

We also tried Main Squeeze Vol. One. with pink guava and lactose…

And we got their Hazelnut Latte sticky bread to go…

Everything was just as delicious as always. We used part of the gift card my parent’s gave us for Christmas. We put $30 on our gift card this time. And we’ll get to use it two more times! Thanks, mom & dad!

On our way out to the car, we saw a train. I could probably watch the trains go by all day. I love the graffiti on the train cars…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, I logged my 80,000th check-in on my Swarm

I stillย reallyย like my check-ins on Swarm!

And we kept watching Manhunt: Unabomber on Netflix. Any day we get to go to Taft’s Brewpourium is a pretty good day. We like that place a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿบ๐Ÿš‚โญ๏ธโค๏ธ

Well played December 37th.

Good morning from Northside…

The scene at the Capitol today was just disgusting…

Ugh. January 20th can’t come soon enough. I’m ready for all this mess to be over and for the racists and white supremacists to crawl back under their rocks. This isn’t how America should be.

For dinner tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken

Ohmigosh. The Mandarin Orange Chicken is so good. And we had delicious pot sticker dumplings too…

For dessert, we had these giant Carol’s Cookies that JJVE sent us as part of our terrific Christmas present…

And they were as delicious as they were huge! Thanks again, JJVE!

Good evening from Northside…

Hopefully better days are on the horizon. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅก๐ŸฅŸ๐Ÿชโค๏ธ

Fantasy football wrap-up.

I played fantasy football again this seasonโ€ฆ

36496598773_1944734904_o

I played four teams but I didn’t realize that all four of my teams of PPR (Points Per Reception). I’d never played PPR leagues before and it showed. Two of my four teams teams made the playoffs and my best finish was 3rd place…

My other teams finished fourth, fifth and seventh, all in eight team leagues. Is that bad? It’s not good. But I still think fantasy football is so much fun. It makes the football season really interesting and enjoyable, especially when youโ€™re winning. Which I wasn’t. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

On to fantasy basketball…

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…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We made it! We survived 2020!

We hope everyone has a very wonderful 2021. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽŠโค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰

Who knows. Not me.

I love this part of time off from work when you wake up in the morning and you’re not entirely certain exactly what day it is…

The clouds were so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I ordered this adorable westie pendant for Genifer for Christmas…

I purchased it on December 12th. It didn’t ship until December 18th. It shipped USPS so it’s journey took almost forever. It arrived today. And this is what was in the box…

Delightful. Now I get to track down what I actually ordered.

Genifer ordered us Chipotle for lunch again

It started raining this afternoon and just kept raining…

I accidentally took this photo but I kind of like it…

And a very rainy good evening from Northside…

But our basement is still completely bone dry…

Thursdays are trash and recycling days…

We had leftover lasagna for dinner with garlic bread…

I love meals with garlic bread. Genifer made deep dish cookies for dessert…

We started to watch Equinox on Netflix tonight. It seems pretty good so far.

In my Timehop from two years ago, my photos on Google Maps had just gone over 3.5 million views…

Fast forward to today and my photos have 63 million views

And that’s pretty cool, if you ask me. Also four years ago, it snowed…

We don’t snow very often. But we do get a lot of great days, just like this one.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒฏ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธโค๏ธ

It’s been nice relaxing.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made lasagna for a late lunch today…

Lasagna is so dang good. And we haven’t had it in a quick minute. And I love anything that can be eaten with garlic bread.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched some football. And we watched the Mavs just destroy the Clippers

We were having a hard time getting into Hinderland so tonight we tried Bordertown. We couldn’t really get into that one either. Maybe we’ll have better luck trying to find a new series to watch tomorrow.

But it sure has been nice just relaxing at home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ
