Norwegian trains vs. Bob Ross.

It seems like we have a subscription to almost every streaming service imaginable: YouTubeTV, Netflix, PrimeVideo, Hulu, Disney+, Peacock for Premier League soccer, CBS for Champions and Europa League soccer and ESPN+ for MLS, USL and Serie A soccer. Whew! Even with all those streamers, we still absolutely love PlutoTV. Pluto is 100% free TV and movies with 100s of TV channels and 1000s of movies. Did I mention Pluto is 100% free?

Most of the time, I listen to PlutoTV while I’m working during the day. I love it because I can pick a channel and watch the same program for as long as I want. I don’t have to try to find something new to listen to every hour when new shows come on. PlutoTV is perfectly splendid.

PlutoTV is constantly updating their lineup and adding new channels. Just recently, they removed one of my very favorite channels, SurfTV. Nothing but surfing shows 24/7. It was awesome. But sadly, it is no more. And that’s perfectly dreadful. But one of our other favorite channels on PlutoTV is SlowTV

SlowTV is nothing but beautiful, scenic train rides through the countryside of Norway 24/7. The scenery of the Norwegian countryside is just gorgeous. We love it. And we fall asleep to SlowTV almost every night.

But Pluto just added a 24/7 Bob Ross painting channel….

The new Bob Ross channel might give SlowTV a run for it’s money for the channel we fall asleep to every night. We’ll have to give it a try.

Norwegian trains versus Bob Ross. It kind of sounds like a grudge match for the ages. 😀📺🛤️🖼️❤️

The best thing to do.

I love Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. 😀🐻🐷❤️

My ballot arrived today.

Good morning from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Hawaiian Boneless Pork Chop with bacon green beans…

It was another really delicious dinner. The pineapple with the crispy onions on top of the pork chops and the bacon green beans were outstanding. The sauce was kind of an Asiany soy sauce. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

Good evening from Northside…

My voter packet arrived in the mail today…

The first one was a no-brainer. The rest were just really everything straight Democratic ticket. Now I just need to figure out the judges. 😀🌄🐷🍍🗳️❤️

With… Sprinkles.

Good morning from Northside…

The front yard of the house at the end of the street is out of control…

Genifer made P.F. Chang’s Orange Chicken for dinner tonight…

And she made dumplings too…

For dessert, she bought home a three big of cookies from Taste of Belgium

I thought the sugar cookie with sprinkles was the best one…

But maybe I just really like Sprinkles.

And good evening from Northside…

And the evening always ends with ball in the backyard. 😀🌄🥡🍪❤️

Google Maps Local Guides Level 9!

I FINALLY DID IT! I just made it to Local Guide Level 9! I’ve been plugging away and working really hard on my Google Maps/Local Guides. I’ve been posting photos and reviews of every place we visit to try to inch myself from Level 8 up to Level 9. I’ve been painfully close to level 9 for a while, and this evening I finally made it…

HOORAY for Level 9! It doesn’t really mean much to anyone other than me. I don’t get anything. I just think it’s fun. It’s kind of like my Swarm. It’s another way to share our experiences and especially another place to share all the dang photos I take of every little thing every single day.

And that’s really why I like Google Maps Local Guides! #LetsGuide 😀🗺️📷9⃣❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop

He was so cute and so fuzzy in these photos. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕🐾❤️

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Since they’re finally done working on our street, we moved our stones and bricks back to their original place in our front yard…

I think we’re going to come out of the water main replacement on our street with only losing a couple of flowers. And that’s really not too bad.

And after our fun afternoon, good evening from Northside…

My Minnesota United was playing FC Cincinnati tonight at Minnesota. Apparently even with the pandemic, a ban on spectators at the matches AND the match being played all the way in Minnesota, FC Cincinnati matches are still blacked out on ESPN+…

Come to find out that thankfully, you can actually stream the FC|C matches through YouTubeTV now…

Minnesota United knocked off FC Cincy 2-0. And Louisville City neat Swope Park Rangers 2-1. It was a great way to end a really fun day. 😀🌄📺⚽️❤️

T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. 😀🌄☁️🌈🐾❤️

Hello from Northside.

Apparently, the construction crew doesn’t work on Fridays because it is very quiet on our street this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to get Sidewinder to get coffee…

Our little shrub in our front yard had a couple of pretty little autumn looking flowers blooming on it…

We walked to the Helltown Bazaar Workshop

It was their last day. They were going out of business tomorrow…

It’s not super surprising that they are closing their doors. They had really strange, very sporadic hours. Like Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 to 3. No real wonder they went out of business.

We got a vintage coffee mug and some new masks. Today was National Quesadilla Day. Then we continued on to Django Western Taco to pick up dinner…

We shared a jerk chicken quesadilla and some tacos and chips & salsa…

We also got some churros and caramel sauce…

And a slice of lemon cheesecake…

And good evening from Northside…

It was a great Friday in Northside. 😀🌄☕️🛍️😷🌮❤️

Constructing Northside, finally.

The day got off to an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

They started working in front of our house again this morning…

There was a lot going on for quick second on our street…

And that’s the progress they made today…

Good evening from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were all tuckered out…

It’s not everyday construction equipment rips up your street, let alone your front yard. 😀🌄🚧🐾❤️
