Why are Mondays always so grey?

It was another overcast and grey Monday morning. And they were already getting to work on our street…

Good morning from Northside…

They were cutting our street this morning…

Y0u kn ow what brightens up a Monday? Grilled cheeses and chicken nuggets…

Guess what? when we took the dogs for their evening walk, it was still overcast…

Good evening from Northside…

When they were working on the street earlier, they must have pushed the dumpster up into the empty lot at the end of our street…

And that’s actually a pretty good thing because it had been creeping further and further out into the street. And we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ₯ͺ❀️

Burgers on a Sunday?!

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

And we stopped for java whips at Mad Llama

Good morning from Northside…

Later, we walked down to Gulow Street for cheeseburgers this evening…

We love this wall of paintings at Gulow Street. And this is what we’re want to replicate in our dining room and why we went to Waynesville looking for paintings….

The burgers at Gulow Street have to be in the running for some of the best in all of Cincinnati…

Just look at all that deliciousness…

Amazing burger.

Good evening from Northside…

Gulow Street burgers make any day a pretty terrific day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚πŸŽˆβ˜•οΈπŸ”β€οΈ

We finally finished it.

It was a rainy Tuesday morning…

We took the dogs on a walk once it stopped raining…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack brings me random dog toys throughout the day…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Chicken Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats with couscous, tomato and herbs…

Ohmigosh. It was delicious. This evening the sun came out…

Good morning from Northside…

There was a little bunny at the bottom of the hill…

And tonight, we finally finished Game of Thrones. We’ve powering through all eight seasons, usually with three episodes a night. That show what seriously stressful. We were worried about the ending. We heard people were upset about it. But it kind of wrapped everything up with a neat little bow. It was a really good show but we’re pretty glad it’s over. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ°πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Friday burger night.

Friday got off to a gloomy start as well…

Good morning from Northside…

The bushes were covered in these little white flowers…

After work, we walked down to Gulow Street for our new Friday Burger Night…

On our way home, we stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern and then we took our very patient pups around the block on their walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And we finished our Friday by sitting out on our back patio fan watching some Olympics for a little bit…

We had a pretty good Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”β€οΈ

Pineapple upside down cheesecake?!

It was a pretty overcast Thursday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We drove over to St. Bernard to get Skyline lunch…

And on our way home, of course we get stuck behind a train…

The train wasn’t too long. We made it home to enjoy our Skylines…

It was still looking pretty grey and a little stormy when we were heading out on our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And for dinner, we ate our deep dish pizza from Chameleon…

I love deep dish pizza. And we ate our pineapple upside down cheesecake that we got with our Skyline lunch…

We weren’t sure about pineapple upside down cheesecake but it turned out to be amazing. And we wished we would have ordered two slices. And that was our Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ§€πŸŒ­πŸ•πŸβ€οΈ

Another overcast Monday.

It was another grey and overcast Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We have three new HelloFresh meals for our dinners this week. Our first meal was Triple Mushroom Truffle Gnocchi with with garlicky Panko and Parmesan…

I don’t think I’ve ever had gnocchi before. It was delicious! And anything with a mushroom sauce has always been one of my favorites.

We made it through another overcast Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸ‘β€οΈ

Coffee. Inside?!

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Mad Llama to get coffee…

And today, we could actually go back inside to get our coffees…

It was pretty exciting to be able to get coffee from inside Mad Llama again…

It’s the little things.

It was looking very dark off in the direction of home…

When it got home, it started pouring…

Once it was done raining, we set our new little fire pit out in our backyard…

We had one HelloFresh meal left for this week. So we ate Meatball with Bulgogi Sauce and roasted carrots, ginger rice and sriracha crema for an early dinner…

It was another delicious meal. There hasn’t been a bad meal yet. They’ve all been really good. We can’t wait to try our meals next week.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched the Copa America final…

It was pretty tremendous to see Messi finally lift his trophy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβš½β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

It was a really pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon the sky started getting kind of dark…

We started another week of HelloFresh meals. Our first meal this week Kung Pao Chicken with sweet Szechuan sauce with peanuts & jasmine rice…

It was another really delicious dinner. We like the HelloFresh meals a lot. It rained while we were eating but it looked like it stopped long enough to make it around the block…

We had a really good Wednesday. We started watching Game of Thrones on HBO Max. (Welcome to the party, pal!) And now we can see what all the buzz what about now. That show is craaaazy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ₯‘🌧️❀️

In my Timehop were these pictures of Svensk…

She loved sitting in the window in our apartment and watching the world go by…

We miss the kitty.

Happy 7-1!

Today is July 1st! Happy 7-1 to all that celebrate…

It was another rainy morning…

On our walk this morning, we only made it to the stop sign at end of street…

But when we went on our walk this evening, the sun was out…

Weather. Go figure.

Good evening from Northside…

We haven’t seen very many snails on our walks so far this year…

Our third and final HelloFresh dinner of the week was Pecan & Walnut Crusted Chicken with BBQ-spiced sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple…

Have we said that we really like the HelloFresh meals?

When we got upstairs, it started pouring again…

And now we have a long four-day holiday weekend…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ
