We’ll be right back. We’re heading to a little cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains for a long anniversary weekend.

A snowy Thursday.

We got more snow overnight…

And a snowy good morning from Northside…

The roads were clearer this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

It was very snowy in our little side yard when we were putting the trash out…

And tonight, Michigan made it two for two after their COVID-19 pause with a solid win over Rutgers…

Michigan remains the only Big Ten basketball team to never lose to Rutgers. And the Michigan athletic program has the best-combined football/basketball record against Rutgers since the Scarlet Knights joined the Big Ten. Go BLUE! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίγ€½οΈπŸ€β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

The sun was out and it was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside….

But this evening, it was overcast again…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer made buffalo chicken pasta for dinner tonight…

With garlic bread…

And we shared this slice of rainbow cake for dessert…

We watched a couple of movies on Amazon Prime Movies again. We watched Alex Cross. It was pretty good but it turns out we had already seen it and Nocturne. It was pretty bad. We need to find a new series to watch on Netflix. The sooner, the better. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

A winter wonderland.

It was very snowy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Work, work, work, work… And then the sun was really pretty this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

We hadΒ another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Piri Piri Chicken and Feta with citrusy green beans…

It was another really delicious meal. The feta chicken was really good. And the green beans were topped crispy onions straws. It was really good. We like theΒ Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsΒ a lot.

Tonight, we watched Super 8 on Amazon Prime Video. It was good. Super cute. But you could tell it was an actual movie, not the typical low-budget schlock that you find on Prime Video. And that kind of takes some of the fun out of watching a movie on Amazon Prime. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I thought Ice Bear had been pulled out of the claw machine…

But he was just moved from the front corner to the back corner. poor guy…

They were still out of pandas and trains…

But there were still plenty of Valentine’s Day balloons…

Lotsa balloons…

Cincinnati was expecting a big winter storm starting later in the afternoon. And that made the check-out lines really long…

And we stopped for coffees…

Arsenal smacked around Leeds United, 4-2. And Michigan was finally back from their three week COVID pause and they had to play away to Wisconsin…

And BOOM! They didn’t miss a beat…

After the Michigan game, we went over to Taft’s for pizza…

We tried Taft’s newest beer, Hazy Cabana Juice

It was really good. We got some loaded tots…

Very blurry tots. And we got a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza…

Taft’s had a Valentine’s Day special with a heart-shaped pizza and cannoli. We didn’t get the special deal but they had extra cannoli and gave us a couple…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out and had a few drinks and watched Mavs basketball…

It probably wasn’t the world’s most romantic Valentine’s Day but it was a really great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ•πŸ€β€οΈ

Hooray for Saturday!

Hooray. It’s Saturday! We were so lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

And we ate fruit from our Edible Arrangement too. Both were so good…

Speaking of so good, we watched Leicester City drop three goals in seven minutes on Liverpool. And it was awesome.

Later, we ordered lunch from Dragon City through DoorDash

Genifer ordered Pad Thai…

And she got some dumplings too…

I ordered Chicken Egg Foo Young…

I also ordered these chicken teriyaki skewers…

I accidentally took this photo of our ceiling fan…

Good evening from Northside…

It looked exactly like it did this morning…

This evening we watched Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel on Netflix. That show was pretty crazy. But we weren’t crazy. We were just pretty lazy today.

We made it to Friday!

The sunrise was pretty this morning…

But then the grey skies started to win again…

There was a pretty deeper blue-grey in the sky this morning just above the horizon…

And by the time we were out on our morning walk, the sun was long gone…

Good morning from Northside…

The very pretty blue-grey in the sky was more pronounced up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Today was a great day to celebrate. It was Friday. We made it through another week. And this morning, our Edible Arrangement was delivered for Valentine’s Day…

It’s pretty amazing how expensive shipping gets the closer you get to Valentine’s Day especially when it falls on a weekend…

But if it was delivered today, it was free. So here we are…

And our arrangement came with a box of a dozen little cookies…

It looks delicious. We can’t wait to dig into the fruits. And the cookies.

We had grilled cheeses with turkey for lunch. In some circles, they call that a Super Bird. But whatever you call them, grilled cheeses are pretty darn good…

I really like dipping my grilled cheeses in barbeque sauce…

And for dinner, we had an NYPD Pizza party…

NYPD Pizza is sooo good…

Snow bear? Snow mouse…?

Snow hamster?

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished watching Wanted on Netflix. We had a really good Friday. And especially since it’s the start of a three-day holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸπŸ“πŸ₯ͺπŸ•πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

The longest day.

I woke up super extra early this morning and shoveled the snow we got overnight from our sidewalk…

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside..

Today was a really long day. But I got all my projects finished. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

It’s cold outside.

It was really cold this morning…

Good morning from Noerhside…

When we came back from our walk, I noticed my Bombas were on the wrong feet..

The breakfast of champions: Strawberry Toaster Strudels and hot chocolate…

And SURPRISE! It was still snowy this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had Sloppy Joseph’s for dinner tonight…

We played in the backyard for a bit…

And then it was back to work while we watched more of Wanted on Netflix.
