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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿฝ๏ธโ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธโค๏ธ

Another grey Monday.

Why does it seem like every Monday so overcast and grey?

Good morning from Northside…

It started raining again this morning…

This airplane was flying east to west which was weird because we see a lot of planes over Northside but they all fly north and south, not east and west. It was kind of odd…

Good evening from Northside…

Mondays are just so bleh, especially when they are all rainy and grey. But these photos from my Timehop made today a little sunnier…

๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”๏ธโค๏ธ

A rainy Saturday morning.

It was raining again this morning…

The waterfall from the neighbors gutters was in full effect…

Oscar did not want to go out in the rain…

Eventually, the rain stopped long enough to go on a quick walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We didn’t have a big puddle on the side of our house…

We put together this little entryway table…

We got sammiches from NYPD Pizza for lunch…

NYPD is so good. After we were done eating the sun came out….

Good evening from Northside….

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

There was an almost a full moon tonight…

Today was also my 1100th Timehop in a row…

And there were photos of these two in my Timehop today…

We had a great Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Already three times this year.

As we were getting up and moving this morning, there was a loud pop that we could hear over our sound machine and then we lost power.

Oh. And it’s still grey and overcast…

Good morning from Northside…

On our way home from our walk, Duke Energy was already arriving on our street…

They had our power back on a little before 9 am. But I think this was already the third time we’ve lost power this year. And that’s a little worrisome. The Duke Energy website said there was an animal on the line. Poor squirrels.

Anyway, we have a lot of blooms in our front yard…

We had cheesy turkey wraps on the panini press for lunch …

The panini press has become one of my favorite little kitchen appliances.

After we finished our work day, we went on our walk and the sun was out!

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered El Taco Veloz through DoorDash…

Genifer gets the kids quesadilla with a side of beans and rice…

And I love their ground beef chimi…

El Taco Veloz is sooo good. I love that there is a service that will bring me a chimichanga whenever I really need one. What an amazingly wonderful world we live in.

If you look really close just above the leaf in the dirt, there was a little baby bird in the back corner of our backyard…

I don’t think the little bird had mastered flying yet, it would flap it’s wing but wouldn’t go anywhere. Eventually, it hopped through a gap in our fence where the side meets the back. Hopefully, it figures out how to fly pretty soon.

When we got upstairs, I was looking out our front window and I got the impression that tonight’s sunset might be really pretty…

I went back down to check it out in our backyard…

But it was just an okay sunset. But it was a really good day. We watched a couple more episodes of Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. And I’m super excited because the Euro Championship starts tomorrrow afternoon! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿซ”โค๏ธ

Another rainy day.

Guess what? It was overcast and raining again this morning…

It’s like we live in the Pacific Northwest or something…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar was getting so fuzzy…

He got a haircut today at Petsmart and now he looks so handsome…

We made it through our Wednesday and then it was time to walk the dogs again.

This is Chloe…

She lives down the street from us…

Hi Chloe!

Good evening from Northside…

It looked like there was another storm rolling in…

It also looked like Mack was watching the soccer game…

Meanwhile, Oscar was just using the footrest of one of our dining room table benches as a pillow…

It doesn’t look like the most comfortable pillow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Dogs are pretty funny.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl at the same time again…

I made a cheesy chicken nugget wrap for lunch…

It started sprinkle on us while we were on our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

At the bottom of the stairs, the sounds of the cicadas was it’s loudest…

When we got home, Oscar started looking for a very specific dog toy…

He kept pulling out toys and setting them in a pile while he dug for the one he really wanted…

Apparently, he was looking for one of the Nylabones…

And then he never really chewed on it. Dogs are pretty funny. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Another Monday.

Dang. And it was ANOTHER overcast and rainy morning…

It was perfect weather for a Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Did I mention it was sprinkling this morning?

Genifer went to the grocery this morning and brought home these…

Our sidewalk had lots of berries on it this morning…

And it was still overcast this evening…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one wasย Cheddar Tortilla Chicken with pepper and potato hash…

It was another great meal.ย We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.ย After dinner, we hung out on our back patio of a bit…

Tonight, we started watching Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. We made it through another Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Burritos, berries and Ragnarok.

It was another grey and overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Drunken Tacos through DoorDash for lunch…

We ordered the Loco Pollo Burrito with chicken, refried beans, lettuce, queso fresco and topped with queso blanco…

And we ordered the Bulgogi Burrito with marinated Korean beef, grilled onions, jalapeรฑos and topped with spicy mayo…

And we ordered a couple of tacos…

The tacos were pretty good. But the burritos were just out of this world!

The sun made an appearance this afternoon after we were done eating…

Good evening from Northside…

And our side yard sidewalk was covered in berries again. This was after sweeping them all up earlier this morning…

This evening, we finished Ragnarok on Netflix. And now we’re going to have to find something else to watch.

Thursdays are for pizza parties.

I think it rained all night and it was still raining this morning…

And it started sprinkling again just as soon as we got to the top of the hill.

Good morning from Northside….

Genifer was painting our hallway…

When we were leaving to go on our evening walk, it looked really ominous…

Good evening from Northside…

As soon as we got on front porch, it started pouring…

And then we ran over to pick up NYPD Pizza in the pouring rain…

Our pizza was amazing…

We hadn’t had an NYPD Pizza party in a minute.

And then we watched more of Ragnarok on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

It was just a rainy day.

We only made it up to the end of the street…

And it pretty much rained all day. Genifer made cauliflower and chickpea curry for dinner tonight…

It was really good. She always finds the best recipes.

After we were done eating, it almost stopped raining long enough for us to get out and around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

And then it started raining some more. Ugh. It was just one of those rainy days.

We watched a few more episodes of Ragnarok tonight. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿœโ›ˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ
