Hooray for Fridays.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Mad Llama to get some coffee before we started work…

And then I wrapped up my projects for the week…

We had the rest of our pizza for dinner and then it was good evening from Northside…

And we played ball in the backyard for another half-hour. I think playing ball is Bear’s favorite part of his day. Oscar’s favorite part is probably going on walks. I think Mack just likes everything. He’s just a very happy dog.

I just like it when the workweek is over and we can enjoy the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Thursdays are for pizza parties.

Look at these beautiful clouds that were hovering over Northside this morning…

We got to the top of the hill at the end of our street and I was lucky enough to get this photo of our little family minus me and the cat…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we walked over Sidewinder to get coffee…

Cheers!

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we had an NYPD Pizza party. And NYPD got their awning back

We got two medium pizzas tonight…

Genifer got her pepperoni and banana pepper pizza…

I had been wanted to try the NYPD’s Crimebuster…

The Crimebuster is NYPD’s almost everything pizza, loaded with pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, ground beef, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and green olives…

And it was delicious. It reminded me a lot of the pizza we had in Louisville. We love NYPD Pizza. And then we played ball in the backyard for another 30 minutes…

Pizza parties make Thursdays pretty darn awesome. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

An early autumn Wednesday?

So far the weather has been almost autumn-like all week. It was only supposed to reach a high of 79ΒΊ today. This morning was chilly enough to wear a hoodie while we were taking the dogs on their morning walk. And it felt like we should be getting ready for college football this weekend. (Like there’s going to be college football this year.)

Still, it was a very pretty morning…

And good morning from Northside…

I realized that I never posted any photos of our freshly painted living room…

The living room turned out so nice. Genifer did such an amazing job with the painting! We’re looking to get a new sofa with a new, bigger TV and TV stand for our living room so we can hang out in our living room more.

And good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs for dinner again. We love BLTs. I had a BLT wrap. It was terrific…

Genifer went out to lunch at Taste of Belgium with coworkers today. And she brought home a oatmeal raisin cookie and brownie for us to share for dessert…

The icing on the cookie was so good…

And the brownie was more like fudge than brownie. It was very rich…

We played ball in our backyard for a half hour tonight…

All the dogs were so tuckered out afterwards. Mack always crashes out in the weirdest, most uncomfortable looking positions…

And when we got upstairs, Oscar made his way under the sofa. Almost…

It was another pretty good Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

I ordered a new hose a couple of weeks ago. And it’s sprung a leak…

I contacted the company that I bought it from and they’re sending me a new one. So that’ll be pretty good.

And later, we played ball in our backyard for 30 minutes tonight…

Bear is a ball playing machine. Hello from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

A case of the Mondays.

There was a pretty sunrise this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

It was started out as another slightly overcast day…

Bear was crashed out with me in the office all day…

And we had delicious Mongolian meatball ramen for dinner…

But it turned out to be a very pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we played some ball in our backyard…

The Reds beat the Indians 3-2. And we started watching Dexter on Netflix. It was a pretty good Monday as far as Mondays go. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Another overcast start.

Dang. It looked like it was going to be another grey and overcast Sunday…

The last day it wasn’t grey and overcast in the morning was Wednesday

Nonetheless, good morning from Northside…

We saw some pretty flowers out on our walk…

And all these Black-eyed Susans…

And the sun came out for our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And we played in our backyard for a while…

The sun was out in our backyard too…

It was a very low key Sunday. We didn’t do very much at all. We didn’t even go to Taft’s to get delicious pizza. Maybe next weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ»β˜€οΈβ€οΈ

 

A pretty good Saturday.

Today is August 1st. Can you believe that? For being pretty much confined to home since the middle of March, this year is going by really fast. I guess time flies regardless of your level of activity.

This morning started out as another grey and overcast Saturday but at least it was cooler and not as humid today. Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made these delicious banana bread cookies…

We were pretty lazy this morning…

After Arsenal lifted the FA Cup, we drove out to the far-north suburbs of Liberty Township for a cookout to celebrate Alyssa’s birthday. When we were leaving Northside, the skies looked really threatening…

And it rained the entire way to Liberty Township but once we got there it was very pretty outside. The sun came out and there were the biggest fluffiest clouds…

When we got home, we dodged more Northside raindrops and took the dogs for a walk…

And good night from Northside…

There was supposed to be an almost full moon tonight but there were waaay to many clouds. Still, it was a pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Hooray! It’s Friday.

Dang. Yet another grey morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started work, we ran over to Kroger for some groceries…

Have you seen these digital advertising strips on the displays at the end of the aisles?

I should have taken a video of them. But I’ve been yelled at so many times for taking photos in Kroger that I get a little gun shy. They were fully animated with varied advertising messages. They were really cool. But they weren’t nearly as cool as these monster candles…

Kroger had the panda and the train again today in the international aisle…

And they had fun unicorn balloons

Seen and noted were these Wendy’s Baconator Pringles chips…

They don’t sound good to me. But what about some Halloween candy?

Why wouldn’t there be Halloween Reese’s Cups pumpkins in the grocery on July 31st?

We had delicious BLTs for dinner…

We’ve been on a real BLT kick lately. Probably because BLTs are so delicious.

And this evening it was still grey…

Good evening from Northside…

Thank goodness, We made it through another week. Bring on the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

 

Hello from Northside.

It was another grey and rainy morning. Good morning from Northside…

I found this Northside sidewalk snail in the middle of the sidewalk. I brought it home and placed it on our bricks…

And it was still grey and rainy when we took the dogs on their walk this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

Hello from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒβ€οΈ

We made it through Wednesday.

It’s hard when you’re really busy with work and there’s nowhere to go and nothing to do. And we were pretty tired today from last night’s MLS is Back tournament matches that both went to penalty shootouts and saw my Minnesota United advance and FC Cincinnati get sent home.

But it was still a good morning from Northside…

I’ve been all about these Kodiak Cakes microwave flapjacks and muffins cups…

Today, I tried the chocolate peanut butter flapjack…

Just a quarter cup of water and 60 seconds in the microwave and you have flapjacks…

They’re really good. I like all the flavors. But the blueberry ones are really my favorites. Speaking of bears, Bear was all crashed out in the office while I was working…

This afternoon I was tinkering with the relatively new Photoshop Camera app and the Photoshop Express app on my phone…

Both of those apps are really neat. There are a lot features. I love being able to remove little blemishes and spots with the Spot Healing feature in Express. I’ll have to keep playing with them.

Good evening from Northside…

And that was pretty much our Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ₯žπŸ»πŸ“·πŸ—“️❀️
