Today was a very pretty day.

It was really pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was very pretty this evening as well…

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread for dinner tonight…

It’s been a minute since we’ve had spaghetti. And I love spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread.

After dinner, we mowed the little bit of grass we have in our backyard…

This afternoon we watched Arsenal complete the double over Chelsea for the first time in 17 years with a gifted 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge. And later, we watched Minnesota United pick up their first win of the season, 1-0 over Vancouver.

It was a pretty good Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸπŸ‘β€οΈ

Getting back to our routine.

We were getting back into our routine this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

It was pretty slow start to the short work week. It was nice to ease back into work…

Good evening from Northside…

We made BLTs for dinner tonight…

Mine was more of turkey club actually…

Mack was trying his best to wait patiently to go outside so we could play in our backyard…

Later, we finished watching season one of Ted Lasso on Apple TV. It was super cute. And pretty hilarious. We really can’t wait for season two. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

We got back home from our trip early this afternoon…

We had a wonderful time on our vacation…

We had a very relaxing week. But it’s good to be home…

Good evening from Northside…

I think Mack was the happiest of all of us to finally be home…

It’s really good to be back home. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ‘β€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

It looks like a beautiful day for a road trip. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

A quick trip to GABP.

Good morning from Northside…

We had to run a couple of errands this morning, and we picked up McDonald’s on the way home. We literally haven’t had McDonald’s in years…

And now we can go another five or so years before we have it again.

Good evening from Northside…

Today was the 10-year anniversary of our first date. We went to a Reds game. Tonight, the Reds actually had a home game against the Cubs. So we went down to GABP to celebrate where it all started ten years ago…

Ten years ago, we sat down the first baseline. We were waited too long to get tickets for today’s game, and got tickets up in the upper deck down the third baseline, where we used to sit back when we had our season tickets…

The Reds just recently increased capacity at GABP from 30% to 40%. The seating set-up was really weird. If we would have sat in our assigned seats, we would have been sitting right in front of people in the row behind us. We didn’t understand how that was maintaining our six feet of social distancing. It kind of made us uncomfortable, so we ventured off to find somewhere to stand to watch the game. Hopefully, someplace with some sun because it was kinda chilly at he ballpark tonight…

We only stayed at the game for a few innings. We were cold and we were leaving in the morning on our road trip. We packed it in so we could go home to finish packing and hang out with Mack and Oscar…

It was incredible to be back at GABP. It was already our third Reds game of the season…

And now we’re all packed for our road trip tomorrow…

We’re excited to start our adventure. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸŸβšΎοΈβ€οΈ

Just trying to get through the week.

Good morning from Northside…

Faithful Companion dropped off Svensk’s remains this morning…

Our home feels very empty without her with us. We miss her so much.

There was a little garter snake in our backyard this afternoon…

Thankfully the dogs didn’t notice it.

Good evening from Northside…

We had buffalo chicken pasta for dinner…

We’re just pretty ready for this week to be over. πŸ™πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Rest in love, Svensk.

Our kitty, Svensk has been really struggling for a while now…

She passed away peacefully in her sleep early this afternoon in her spot on her favorite bed…

Faithful Companion came out to our house this afternoon to pick her up for cremation…

Our home definitely feels emptier without her with us anymore…

I kept looking over at her bed all evening expecting to see her there…

Svensk will be missed greatly. She was 17 years old. 😒😭🐾❀️

Five years and two months.

Today is our five-year and two-month wedding anniversary…

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

Super pink moon.

And we were back at it on another Monday morning…

At least the sun’s out this morning. And that makes it a good morning from Northside…

We made it through another Monday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Wild Mushroom and Steak Risotto with broccolini and tomatoes…

It was another great meal. I could have eaten that risotto for the rest of the week. After dinner, we played in the backyard for a little while…

Tonight, there was a 99.4% full moon. It was the first of two super moons this year

This year we’ll be treated to two super moons. The first was tonight and the second will be on May 26.

Super moons are bigger and brighter than your average full Moon. This super pink moon didn’t actually look super pink, or pink at all really. The moon was its usual color, just a very bright white as it moved across the sky!

I really like the super moons.πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸŒ•β€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ
