Saturdays are the best.

Good morning from Northside…

For lunch, we had our last HelloFresh meal of the week. This one was Sesame Soy Pork Bowls with sriracha mayo, cilantro and crispy onions…

These meals are delicious. This was one was no exception. But it was a little on the spicy side. It was the first one that we had to take breaks from eating because it was so spicy. Still, it was delicious.

Good evening from Northside…

We walked back down to Gulow Street for some noodles…

Genifer order some Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese with garlic bread…

And I love garlic bread. Ohmigosh. We love Gulow Street so much. Everything is so good. We’re so happy they decided to become part of our Northside.

And later, we watched the Olympics in our backyard…

I forgot to take a photo of our projector set-up this evening. I think our set-up is pretty cool. I love the weekends when we can sit out on our patio and enjoy our backyard. And Saturdays are the best. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Today was a very pretty day.

It was really pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was very pretty this evening as well…

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread for dinner tonight…

It’s been a minute since we’ve had spaghetti. And I love spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread.

After dinner, we mowed the little bit of grass we have in our backyard…

This afternoon we watched Arsenal complete the double over Chelsea for the first time in 17 years with a gifted 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge. And later, we watched Minnesota United pick up their first win of the season, 1-0 over Vancouver.

It was a pretty good Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ๐Ÿกโค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

The sun was out and it was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside….

But this evening, it was overcast again…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer made buffalo chicken pasta for dinner tonight…

With garlic bread…

And we shared this slice of rainbow cake for dessert…

We watched a couple of movies on Amazon Prime Movies again. We watched Alex Cross. It was pretty good but it turns out we had already seen it and Nocturne. It was pretty bad. We need to find a new series to watch on Netflix. The sooner, the better. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ“บโ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…

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

โ€œWe may have all come on different ships, but weโ€™re in the same boat now.โ€

โ€œAn individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.โ€

โ€œLove is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.โ€

โ€œOnly in the darkness can you see the stars.โ€

โ€œEverybody can be great โ€ฆ because anybody can serve. You donโ€™t have to have a college degree to serve. You donโ€™t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.โ€

Martin Luther King Jr.

We both had the day off work today for the holiday. It was a cold and snowy day…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made cheesy buffalo chicken pasta with garlic bread for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

I realized when we got to the stairs at the top of the hill at the end of our street that I had forgotten my little fisheye Moment lens

Today, we watched Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-0. And we watched the MLK Day NBA games especially the Grizzlies win over the Suns. I like the Griz. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. It was a very nice day off. And another very low-key, relaxing day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

The first day of winter break.

Genifer has to work a couple of days this week. But I have the entire week off work…

Good morning from Northside…

I worked on organizing our studio office today…

Sometimes it’s hard to get Mack to come downstairs to go on walks…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Alfredo Penne with mozzarella. Again. We wanted to get a different meal this time. The one we wanted was something-something Caesar chicken. But I grabbed the wrong one out of the refrigerated case at the grocery…

It was another really good meal. We just wished it was a different one. But it was still a really good dinner. And we got to enjoy some more garlic bread. And I love garlic bread. We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot. And Genifer made these deep dish chocolate chip cookies…

Ohmigosh. They were so good. We paired them with little chocolate swirl ice cream cups. It was a really great dessert. The dogs new toys have their fist casualty. Oscar gnawed off one of the eyes of the avocado toy…

We had another pretty good day. Hopefully, this will be a very low-key, relaxing week at home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

An extra hour of Sunday.

It’s hard to believe that today is November 1st…

It was pretty nice getting an extra hour of sleep this morning…

Good morning from Northside with an extra hour later…

This morning we made these pillsbury Chocolate Chip Sweet Biscuits for breakfast…

They’d become somewhat of a running joke. Every time we were at the grocery, I’d point them out to Genfiier and ask if she wanted to get them. She’s always say no. And I just kept asking every trip for months. Finally the last time we were at the grocery, they were on sale. I put them in our cart and here we are…

They were pretty good. They were remarkably similar to the Pillbury cinnamon rolls. Since the oven was already warm, Genifer made some Snoopy cookies too…

Of course, I focus on the one cookie that’s upside-down. And we learned how to draw Snoopy heads…

And then we just hung out for the rest of the afternoon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. Before dust cheese…

After dust cheese…

After dust cheese with garlic bread…

Gosh. I love spaghetti and meatballs with dust cheese and garlic bread.

We went back out in the backyard to play some more…

After we eat dinner and go outside, we give the dogs their evening treat of a couple of hot dogs chunks so Mack can get his allergy medicine…

Hot dogs might just be the favorite part of Mack’s day.

And I captured this horrible photo of tonight’s full moon…

Any time you can get an extra hour of Sunday, it’s a good thing.

Having just watched Maleficent on Friday night, we watched Maleficent 2 tonight. It was another pretty good movie. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โฐ๐Ÿช๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread…

I love spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ๐Ÿžโค๏ธ
