A world without sports.

One year ago during the the Mavs-Nuggets game on ESPN, the NBA decided to suspend their season while the Mavs game was still going…

And the next day, it was all kind of dominoes…

And just like that, we were plunged into a world without sports.

Saturday, March 6th.

I’d never seen all The Hobbit movies. So tonight, we started watching the trilogy…

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I thought Ice Bear had been pulled out of the claw machine…

But he was just moved from the front corner to the back corner. poor guy…

They were still out of pandas and trains…

But there were still plenty of Valentine’s Day balloons…

Lotsa balloons…

Cincinnati was expecting a big winter storm starting later in the afternoon. And that made the check-out lines really long…

And we stopped for coffees…

Arsenal smacked around Leeds United, 4-2. And Michigan was finally back from their three week COVID pause and they had to play away to Wisconsin…

And BOOM! They didn’t miss a beat…

After the Michigan game, we went over to Taft’s for pizza…

We tried Taft’s newest beer, Hazy Cabana Juice

It was really good. We got some loaded tots…

Very blurry tots. And we got a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza…

Taft’s had a Valentine’s Day special with a heart-shaped pizza and cannoli. We didn’t get the special deal but they had extra cannoli and gave us a couple…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out and had a few drinks and watched Mavs basketball…

It probably wasn’t the world’s most romantic Valentine’s Day but it was a really great Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Hooray for Saturday!

Hooray. It’s Saturday! We were so lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

And we ate fruit from our Edible Arrangement too. Both were so good…

Speaking of so good, we watched Leicester City drop three goals in seven minutes on Liverpool. And it was awesome.

Later, we ordered lunch from Dragon City through DoorDash

Genifer ordered Pad Thai…

And she got some dumplings too…

I ordered Chicken Egg Foo Young…

I also ordered these chicken teriyaki skewers…

I accidentally took this photo of our ceiling fan…

Good evening from Northside…

It looked exactly like it did this morning…

This evening we watched Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel on Netflix. That show was pretty crazy. But we weren’t crazy. We were just pretty lazy today.

Superb Owl Sunday.

Happy Superb Owl Sunday!

We were up super early this morning, even before the sunrise…

Good morning from Northside…

And we were off to run over the the grocery…

We always go to the grocery early, but we wanted to get over extra early this morning. We thought it might start to get a bit nutty with people stocking up on supplies for The Big Gameโ„ข…

It looked like Ice Bear was rescued from the claw machine…

He used to be right where the zebra is now. I hope he went to a good home…

Both the panda and the train were out of stick in the International Aisle…

And there were still a few balloons left but no owl balloons…

Just lots and lots of hearts…

As is tradition, we stopped for coffee after the grocery…

Here’s another photo of Genifer’s new desk. She moved it over in front of the window…

It looks really nice in there.

And good evening from Northside…

I was cheering for Tom Brady in The Big Gameโ„ข…

And there you go. We had a whole bunch of chip and dippers while we watched the game. It was a pretty great Superb Bowl Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Hello February.

I’m just now getting used to the fact that it’s 2021. It’s hard to believe that it’s already February. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ“…โค๏ธ

Today was a really good day.

Today was my birthday. Apparently, there was a full moon last night and we could still sort of see it out of our bathroom window this morning…

There were some really pretty clouds this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the Kroger Fuel Station to fill up…

We had 80ยข off per gallon thanks to our Kroger Fuel points…

And then we ran over to Mad Llama for birthday coffee…

JAVA WHIPS!

And it was 29ยบ on January 29th…

Good evening from Northside…

Birthday presents!

We had a $10 off coupon from DoorDash so we ordered dinner from China Food

We ordered so much food…

But it was delicious. We can’t wait to order more dinners from China Food.

Later, we watched the Mavs lose to the Jazz. Bummer. And over in the Big Ten, #19 Illinois knocked off #7 Iowa…

Afterward, I saw this on Twitter

And there was this one. ๐Ÿคฃ Poor Sparty. They’re having a rough year. I really miss Michigan basketball. I can’t wait until they’re done with their quarantine.

I had a really wonderful birthday. Especially for being in the middle of a pandemic…

Thank you for all the cards and birthday wishes. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ›ฝ๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ

The laziest of lazy Sundays.

It was a rainy Sunday. And we had the laziest of lazy Sundays. This morning we watched the Chelsea and Leicester FA Cup matches. Unlike Arsenal, both teams advanced to the next round.

Good morning from Northside…

We picked up some NYPD hoagies for lunch today…

While we were eating lunch, we perused some VRBO spots…

NYPD hoagies are so good.

And good evening from Northsideโ€ฆ

We watched the NFL playoff games. My biggest fear was that the Packers and Chiefs would both win and we’d have a State Farm Superb Owl. But thankfully, there’s the greatest of all time, Tom Brady…

Twenty-first!

Yesterday was the Greatest Palindrome Ever. Today was a pretty unique day as well…

The morning got off to a pretty start…

Good morning from Northside…

I’ve been on a homemade hot chocolate kick lately…

We made it through another work day…

Good evening from Northside…

And it’s Thursday! Time for an NYPD Pizza party

According to my Swarm, this was our 100th visit to NYPD Pizza…

It feels like we’ve been to NYPD a lot more than 100 times. But it’s Swarm so who knows?

NYPD Pizza party…

Ohmigosh. NYPD Pizza is so good. Tonight, we started watching Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer. We’ve been a real serial killer series kick lately.

And soon as we started the the show, Mack snuck off to hang out down in our studio office on his dog bed…

He sleep down there a lot. As I was getting ready for bed, I stopped to admire the view out of our third-floor bathroom window that looks out over our backyard…

I like the views we have around of little neighborhood. It was another good day. But any day that involves an NYPD pizza party is a pretty good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

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…
