We did a lot today.

Oscar was getting his hair cut today, so we were up pretty early on a Saturday morning before his grooming appointment…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar’s appointment was set for 8am but we were running a bit early so we stopped at Biggby for coffees

And then it was back over to Petsmart in Oakley…

Oscar had gotten so fuzzy…

We kind of wanted to get him a haircut before we headed out to the coast but we just ran out of time. Sorry Oscar, today’s the day…

While we were sitting in the car, enjoying our Biggby and waiting for Petsmart to open, the sun started to rise above the horizon…

After we dropped off Oscar, we ran over to Lowe’s…

After we got some more Christmas lights, a new wreath and some odds and ends stuff, we headed over to Home goods in Rookwood…

We got the boys a bunch of new dog beds and some other stuff. And then we went next door to walk through T.J.Maxx…

While we were in T.J.Maxx, we got the call from Petsmart that Oscar was ready to be picked up…

And Oscar looked so handsome!

Western Michigan-Northern Illinois and Michigan-Penn State were both on at the same time. We put Western on the TV and Michigan on the tablet. I thought the Western game was going to be the one more worth watching…

Western beat Northern Illinois and Michigan lost. Again. After the games, I went out placed some holiday lights in our front yard along our bricks…

And then we went to pick up some hoagies from NYPD

Deliciousness. NYPD’s hoagies are out of this world.

Later, we took the dogs on their evening walk and the moon was huge…

Good evening in Northside…

As it started to get dark, we kept going outside to check out our lights…

And we finished putting the lights on our tree…

Genifer did amazing job with the holiday decorations inside the house…

We had a really good Saturday. We got a lot of stuff done today.

Later, we watched some Netflix and chose Hometown Holiday, which was a very bad, poor man’s version of a Hallmark Christmas movie and Falling Inn Love, which was actually really cute.

Long weekends are the best. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ›οΈπŸ’‘πŸŽ„β€οΈ

We made it through another Monday.

Good morning from Northside…

And fast forward to this evening. For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Parmesan Pork Chops with pesto broccoli…

And it was another delicious dinner. The pork chop was so cheesy and the pesto broccoli was really good. Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables. And it was topped with crispy red peppers. They were tasty. It was one of the better meals. We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

We took the dogs on their walk and the moon was really bright tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

We made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Mackerel sky & Snoopy cookies.

There were some very pretty clouds this morning…

They created a very low ceiling over Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

I need to learn more about clouds. It would be neat to be able to say, “check out these mackerel sky altocumulus clouds we had over Cincinnati this morning.” I don’t want to be a weather person but meterology is pretty neat.

I put out the trash and recycling this evening and there was the moon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had broiler sammiches for dinner tonight. Mine was Cajun turkey and cheddar on Hawaiian bread…

And Genifer made more Snoopy cookies

Good night moon…

I had to work on my work projects this evening for meeting tomorrow. And the was the only part of today that was kind of a bummer. πŸ˜€β˜οΈπŸ₯ͺπŸͺπŸŒ™β€οΈ

It’s nice to be home.

Our first day back home and of course, it was a cold and rainy morning…

Welcome back to Ohio and good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery because we didn’t have any food in our house…

It’s the middle of November and there were Christmas display all over the store. I chose to ignore all that nonsense. I could ignore this giant lion…

Kroger had the panda bear and the train back on the shelf again today…

I forgot to look at the balloons. I bet there were some great Thanskgiving balloons. Hopefully, I’ll remember to look if we go to the grocery store next weekend.

After the grocery, we stopped at Mad Llama for Sunday morning coffee…

One of my favorite sayings is, Comparison is the thief of joy. On our way home, we had a discussion about which was better: the Espresso Shake from Sunset Ice Cream in Duck OR the Caramel Java Whip from Mad Llama. They are both really good. I think I like the Java Whip from Mad Llama better because it’s soft serve, coffee AND caramel, which is a good thing because we can get to Mad Llama a lot easier than we can get to Sunset Ice Cream. But why compare? Why not just enjoy both?

We have some leaves to rake in our backyard…

But it was so rainy this morning that we’re not going to be able to rake them today. The leaves were so wet. That’s fine because we just wanted to be lazy today. And the sky still looked pretty ominous…

I think Mack was really happy to be back home again…

Later, we took the dog’s around the block and the sky was so pretty…

And good evening from our backyard…

I took all the photos this evening with my little DJI Osmo Pocket. And they turned out really nice, even in low light. The contrast was much better than my mobile’s camera. I think I need to find a different Android camera app to try. However, the DJI Osmo Pocket struggled with these night clouds that we saw from our backyard…

It was really nice to be back home. We pretty much laid around all day and watched football. I worked on my photos and videos a bit. We did laundry and got ready to get back to work tomorrow. Later, we finally finished The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. For a show about chess, it was really very good.

It’s fun to go place but it’s also nice to be back home. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ¦β˜•οΈπŸ“Ίβ™ŸοΈβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β°πŸͺπŸπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Our Halloween.

Halloween should’ve been perfect this year. It fell on a Saturday, withΒ a full moonΒ and with daylight savings time everyone got an extra hour of sleep the next day. But unfortunately, 2020 had other ideas.

Halloween got off to a very frosty start…

Good morning from Northside…

And for the first time this fall, we had to scrape our windows this morning…

After the windows defrosted, we ran over to the grocery…

And then it was on to Mad Llama for Saturday morning Halloween coffee…

After Michigan State shocked Michigan, we rolled over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a delicious pizza dinner…

As we were walking across the parking lot, a train was rolling by…

Taft’s had a Halloween special this weekend…

We had a Maple vs Amburana double imperial stout before we ordered….

While we drank our beer, we watched our street view WyzeCam to see if there were many trick-or-treaters out and about…

And it looked like there were a few on our street…

There’s our cotton candy….

And there’s our pizzas…

After we devoured our delicious pizza, we took the dogs on a walk and couldn’t help but admire the Halloween full moon…

Good evening from Northside…

All things considered, we had a pretty good Halloween. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

A Friday with Reds baseball.

We got up extra early this morning to run a couple of errands before work. But first, we had to walk the dogs. It was a little hazy this morning. The hill off in the distance looked extra distant today…

Good morning from Northside…

Our little shrub in our front yard is so blossomy…

We ran to Lowe’s so Genifer could get another gallon of paint for the living room. And then we swung through Mad Llama for coffee

And we made it back home for my 9am meeting. It turned out to be a very pretty day…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we watched the entire Reds game, from the first pitch until the last…

The Reds looked formidable as they beat the Tigers 7-1. It was really good to watch the Reds again! And it’s so amazing to have MLB back in our lives. While we were watching the game, Oscar snuck in between the sofa and the ottoman…

It was such a pretty evening…

It was a really good Friday. It’s terrific to have baseball back! πŸ˜€βšΎοΈβ€οΈ

A Thursday that feels like Friday.

Today is Thursday but it’s kind of our Friday. We both have four-day holiday weekends for the Fourth of July. Let’s get this party started. Good morning from Northside…

We walked to get Sidewinder Coffee this morning…

We went on the rare lunchtime dog walk around the block…

And we went on our evening walk as well…

Good evening from Northside…

And to celebrate the start of our long holiday weekend, we started our weekend with an NYPD Pizza party

We got boneless wings and a large Station House pizza with banana peppers…

NYPD’s pizza is sooo good. And there was an almost full moon tonight…

Bring on the long holiday weekend! #MURICA πŸ˜ƒπŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ•πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ€οΈ

Good night from Northside.

Good night from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Good night from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•πŸŒβ€οΈ
