Who knows. Not me.

I love this part of time off from work when you wake up in the morning and you’re not entirely certain exactly what day it is…

The clouds were so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I ordered this adorable westie pendant for Genifer for Christmas…

I purchased it on December 12th. It didn’t ship until December 18th. It shipped USPS so it’s journey took almost forever. It arrived today. And this is what was in the box…

Delightful. Now I get to track down what I actually ordered.

Genifer ordered us Chipotle for lunch again

It started raining this afternoon and just kept raining…

I accidentally took this photo but I kind of like it…

And a very rainy good evening from Northside…

But our basement is still completely bone dry…

Thursdays are trash and recycling days…

We had leftover lasagna for dinner with garlic bread…

I love meals with garlic bread. Genifer made deep dish cookies for dessert…

We started to watch Equinox on Netflix tonight. It seems pretty good so far.

In my Timehop from two years ago, my photos on Google Maps had just gone over 3.5 million views…

Fast forward to today and my photos have 63 million views

And that’s pretty cool, if you ask me. Also four years ago, it snowed…

We don’t snow very often. But we do get a lot of great days, just like this one.

Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran out to get some Christmas Eve Eve Biggby coffee

We ran around a little bit to do some last minute Christmas shopping…

We got some odds and ends stuff. And a bunch of new dog toys for Oscar & Mack. I also got Mack a new dog bed and Snoopy blanket to go in our studio office where he sleeps a lot. I snuck his new bed upstairs while he was outside…

I showed him his new dog bed and he pretty much spent the rest of the day lounging on it…

While I was hanging out in the studio office with Mack, I decided to check out day 23 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

I think he really likes his new dog bed…

Later, we had a NYPD Pizza hoagie party….

NYPD hoagies are so good. And their fries were even better than normal tonight.

We dragged Mack off his new dog bed to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After he got his treats, Mack was right back upstairs, crashed out on his new dog bed…

This evening, we finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix. It was a really good series. We hope they get around to making a third season someday. But it probably won’t be anytime soon.

And Mack was still sleeping on his new dog bed…

We hope everyone had a Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ›οΈπŸΎπŸ₯ͺ🍟❀️

Oh. I also thought these drawings from @crazyheadcomics & @wearyourvoice were really beautiful…

It just reaffirms how blessed we are and how good we have it this Christmas Eve Eve.

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

Getting in some Christmas shopping.

We both had the day off work today. Genifer doesn’t usually work on Tuesdays and I’ve been trying to use up my vacation days before the end of the year. So this morning, we went and got coffee from Biggby and then went to the mall. The last time I went to the mall was over two years ago…

Do you think this is the last Sbarro on Earth? They used to be everywhere…

It was kinda fun to wander around the mall. We got a few things not a whole bunch. I definitely still have a bunch of Christmas shopping left to do. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ€οΈ

Ohio Maker Mart at UA.

This afternoon we walked over across Northside to Urban Artifact

We had one of Urban Artifact’s Epicurean Cranberry Jalapeno Jam

And it was as delicious as it sounds. By the way, Wild Fire Pizza Kitchen is serving brunch now and it also sounds really delicious…

This weekend UA was hosting the Ohio Explored Ohio Maker Mart shop again

After walking through the bottom, we walked upstairs…

There was some really great stuff…

After wandering around for a bit, we walked to Boswell’s Alley to get some Bos Bites…

And a Super Grill…

It’s so simple but it’s one of my favorites. It was another fun Northside Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

Shopping in Over-the-Rhine.

After lunch at Sacred Beast, we did some shopping in OtR. We went to Mica 12v. They had this wall of clocks that was pretty mesmerizing to watch

Then we went to The Native One. Genifer loves this store…

I wanted to steal these adorable dog toys, and I would take the dog bed too…

We saw this guy on Vine Street…

We went to Elm&Iron

And then across the street to Elm&Iron Loft…

I think my dream job would be doing the Instagram for Elm&Iron. We stopped into Low Spark for a drink…

And then we walked down to Sundry and Vice for a drink before heading home…

We love their amazing cocktails. It was a really fun afternoon of shopping and hanging out in OtR. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈπŸΉβ€οΈ

Downtown details.

I was running some errands around downtown Cincinnati this afternoon, and I was kind of shocked to see that the Tiffany & Co. at Vine and Fifth Streets had closed…

It’s real shame. A while back the downtown TJ Maxx moved across the river to Newport. Then the downtown Macy’s closed their doors. And now Tiffany has left. The only real place to any shopping in the Central Business District is Saks Fifth Avenue. It getting harder and harder to do holiday or birthday shopping in CBD. And that’s a real shame. Also a real shame is the huge, old beautiful pine tree they cut down to display on Fountain Square for a little over a month…

I wish they would just get a big fake tree or come up with some alternative to chopping down a very old tree every year. But in an effort to remain positive, downtown did recently get a Frisch’s Big Boy in Carew Tower on Fifth Street…

I’ll have to check out the new Big Boy soon. Honestly, I keep forgetting it’s over there.

I guess the world giveth and taketh away. It seems like CBD has been more on the taketh side lately. And that also is a real shame.

Holiday shopping in OtR.

Work gave me a half-day off today to do some holiday shopping. So we ventured up into Over-the-Rhine’s Gateway Quarter to check out the relatively new Elm & Iron

We went over to check out the new Victor Athletics Club on Republic Street…

But they’re closed on Monday. So we wandered back down Vine Street…

To Gateway Quarter staple, Mica 12/v

Soooo much incredible stuff! It would be pretty amazing to be able to run the social media for these places especially their Instagram accounts. πŸ™‚
