Home sweet home.

It’s nice to visit new places but it’s also really nice to be home…

And good evening from Northside…

It’s nice to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΎβ€οΈ

Sunday coffee & pizza party!

After walking the dogs, we hoped in the car to go get coffee. It was foggy over on this side town…

I accidentally ordered Genifer a hot coffee from Mad Llama

Dang. Sorry about that, baby. When we got home, there were some really grey clouds over Northside…

Good afternoon from Northside…

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of our pizza and wings? Crazy, right? We had another white pizza with prosciutto and tomatoes and Cherrywood BBQ wings. It was delicious as always!

Later, we played in the backyard for a bit…

Trips to Mad Llama Coffee and Taft’s Brewpourium make Sundays great.

A darn good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery store to get some groceries for the week…

How adorable were these buttons?

If they would have been magnets, they would be home with us right now. And this llama pillow was pretty cute…

There were some good balloons today too. I got five on it with some stars…

There were a lot of Back-to-School balloons because it’s about that time….

And without a hint of irony, the Back-to-School balloons were right next to the Get Well Soon balloons…

There should have been a promotion, Buy any Back-to-School balloon, get one, Get Well Soon balloon for free.” Ugh. It’s hard to believe that the pandemic has been raging for six months now, and nothing’s getting any better. And speaking of the pandemic when we were done at the grocery, we ran into Target…

While we were at Target, I got an eye exam…

If you remember a while back, I cracked my glasses right in two. I’ve been going without glasses for a minute. And today, I ended up getting two new pairs. One near-sighted pair with blue light filter for working on my computer and one far-sighted pair for driving and watching movies. Both of them compensate for my pretty considerable astigmatism. I’m so excited for my new glasses. They’ll be ready in a couple of weeks. The best part is that between my insurance and health savings account that both pairs of glasses cost me a grand total of $10. How cool is that? And I also got this new little bluetooth speaker…

It has a really good, full sound. Also full was my belly after eating a BLT with turkey bacon and Canadian Bacon for lunch…

It looked like it was raining off in the distance…

And good evening from Northside…

This evening I trimmed the grass in our little front yard…

And our little front yard flowers are really flourishing…

And of course, we played some ball in our backyard…

Mack was waiting for us upstairs at the top of the steps…

When we got upstairs, we watched the Grizzlies lose the the 8/9 play-in game to the trailblazers in the NBA bubble. It was a really good game. I love the Griz but I think the Blazers will give the Lakers more problems. And it was be awesome if the Lakers got knocked out of the playoffs.
We also watched Louisville City beat Loudoun 2-0.

It was a pretty darn good Saturday. I can’t wait for my glasses. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

50 Follows.

We just went over 50 WordPress followers for our blog…

Actually, our current tally is 55 followers. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what we’ve been up to lately. We really appreciate it! Especially during this pandemic when it feels like all I’ve been posting has been pretty much the same photo of the sky from the same vantage point. Every. Single. Day.

On a somewhat related note, I was forced into using the new WordPress block editor. It’s annoying when websites or apps redesign their sites or interfaces, especially when everything worked just fine. the classic editor was so easy and I was really used to working with it. I got really frustrated with it. But now after working with it for a few days, I’m really starting to get used to it, and it doesn’t bother me any more. πŸ˜€πŸ’»βž•β­οΈβ€οΈ

Burgers to start the weekend.

We always let the dogs out in the backyard before we take them on a walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Our flowers in our front yard are looking really pretty…

I’ve been pulling weeds everyday. Hopefully someday our little front yard will be weed-free and the clover will just take over. Speaking of flowers, how pretty is this one that we saw on our dog walk this evening?

And good evening from Northside…

After work was done and after we walked the dogs tonight, we walked down to Tickle Pickle to get burgers and shakes for dinner….

Tickle Pickle makes vegan shake that Genifer just loves. I’ve been in love with their regular strawberry milkshakes…

Genifer ordered the Eagles chicken sammich…

And I ordered my Buns ‘n Roses burger with extra cheese…

Tickle Pickle is delicious. And it was a great way to start the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ»πŸ”β€οΈ

The last of the cupcakes.

Good morning from Northside…

I don’t remember what we had for dinner. But we finished the cupcakes

It’s always a little sad when you eat your last cupcake.

Good evening from Northside…

And we played ball in the backyard…

We watched the Grizzlies beat the Bucks by 13 to officially clinched a spot in the Western Conference play-in game against the Portland Trailblazers. It was probably the Grizzlies best win of the bubble. I like the Grizzlies. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. But then again, I just really like bears. So I might be biased. And we watched the Phoenix Suns finish a perfect 8-0 in the NBA bubble as they defeated our Mavericks, 128-102. I’ve been really getting into the NBA bubble games. The officiating has been horrible as ever. But it’s been fun to watch the basketball. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ€β€οΈ

Another very pretty morning.

There was another really pretty sunrise this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

For dinner tonight, Genfier made baked sausages and sweet potatoes…

It’s one of my favorite dinners. Then we took the dogs around the block…

And good evening from Northside…

We’ve been watching the old Showtime series, Dexter on Netflix. It’s been pretty good so far. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

79000 check-ins.

This morning I tallied my 79000th check-in on my Swarm

I stillΒ reallyΒ like my check-ins on Swarm! πŸ˜€β­οΈβ€οΈ

But I think I’m going to be done with Swarm when I hit 80,000 check-ins, if not sooner. They made some changes to the app because of COVID-19 and it’s just not nearly as much fun anymore. We’ve had a good run Swarm.

Great sports… for a Tuesday.

We were trying to find the Reds game on TV tonight. But on Fox Sports Ohio was game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Columbus Blue Jackets. And the Reds were coming on as soon as the hockey game was finished. The problem was the hockey game became an epic five overtime thriller,..

I’m not a huge NHL hockey fan. But it was crazy that every time we tried to turn on the Reds game tonight, this hockey game was still going. We came back from walking the dogs, still going. We played ball and went upstairs, still going. And finally, Tampa Bay scored to take game one from Columbus in what turned out to be the fourth longest hockey game in the NHL history despite the Jackets goalie’s NHL record 85 saves…

And then it was time for the finals of the MLS is Back Tournament

And thankfully, Portland Timbers defeated Orlando City to lift the trophy…

I don’t mind the Portland Timbers. They’re probably my third favorite MLS team. But I do not care for Orlando City and I especially don’t care for Orlando City’s “star” player, Nani. I didn’t like him when he played in England for Manchester United, and I certainly don’t like now. Not at all. Not one bit. He’s just an entirely unlikable player. I’m really happy he didn’t win.

But other than Nani, the MLS is Back Tournament was so much fun. I watched every single match. And it was really terrific to have three soccer matches to watch each day for a couple of weeks during the group play. It was a great tournament. And I already miss it. I feel like I’m going through MLS is Back soccer tournament withdrawl right now. I hope they do some version of a tournament like this every season.

It was a really great sports night… for a Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ’βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

A wonderful start for Tuesday.

The sunrise this morning was a really pretty one…

I bet Mack was wondering what the heck I kept looking at…

And here’s what it looked like when I shared it on Instagram

It was pretty morning in our backyard too…

And good morning from Northside…

When Genifer went to lunch with her coworkers at Taste of Belgium, she also brought home a bag of blueberry Belgian waffles, and those waffles are delicious…

It was pretty this afternoon in our backyard as well…

While I was working this afternoon, Mack wandered into our office and set one of his squeaky toys on my leg and left…

And Bear was crashed out in Mack’s crate in our office all afternoon…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Italian Sausage Penne with sun-dried tomato cream and sweet corn…

It was another really delicious dinner. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

After dinner, we shared a giant chocolate chip cookie that Genifer brought home with her from Currito…

Oscar likes laying under our dining room table while he waits patiently for us to finish eating dinner so he can go on his walk…

And good evening from Northside…

And then we wrapped up our Tuesday back in our backyard again to play more ball…

We had a pretty darn good Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ
