And back to Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

Instead of the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade, this year there were Fourth of July decoration destinations…

And one of neighbors at the end of our street was a decoration destination…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we walked back down to Gulow Street

It was so good yesterday that we wanted to try more of items off their menu. Today, we both ordered their burger with chips…

Gulow Street’s burger were amazing. Everything we’ve had at Gulow Street has been so good that we ordered a couple more items to go…

We really like Gulow Street.

When we got home, we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

Later, we ate our Gulow Street takeaway…

Sesame noodles…

And the ham & butter sammich…

Both we just terrific.

And four years ago, we still had grass in our backyard…

What a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ”β€οΈ

BLTs & more work on our yard.

It was kind of hazy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We stopped for coffee…

We added some landscape edging and decorative rock border to our front yard…

When we were finishing up in our front yard, a guy jogging by stopped to ask where we got our bricks. After chatting for a minute and as he started to walk away, he said, “Yeah, I gotta work on my front yard and try to get it up to this level.” It was such a nice thing to say. And it made us feel so proud of our front yard…

Hopefully, we van get our backyard up to the level of our front yard. We pulled all the grass and weeds out of the front third of our backyard…

I tried to dig out an old concrete post anchor next to our backyard path…

And that was clearly a mistake. I put it back in it’s hole and filled the hole back in…

Our next step will be adding rocks…

We went upstairs to take some showers. Hi Oscar…

We had BLTs for dinner….

BLTs with wedge fries…

Good evening from Northside…

Our front yard looks so nice…

We sat out on our back patio for a bit…

We watched the Louisville City thump Memphis 3-0 and listened to some music…

We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯ͺ❀️

Oktoberfest In Za House.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack usually hangs out with me in our office while I’m working but today he wandered off. And I found sleeping in my spot on our bed…

When were out on our walk this evening, we saw this yard sign…

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is traditionally the nation’s largest Oktoberfest and the second largest in the world to the original Oktoberfest in Munich. And apparently even with COVID-19 this year, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is still taking place around town at favorite Cincinnati eateries and pubs and In Za House at home…

Good evening from Northside….

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati In Za Haus will enable Oktoberfest lovers to get their German on at home by ordering do-it-yourself Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Zelebration Packs. This year’s mostly virtual Oktoberfest starts today and runs through next Saturday, September 27th. PROST!

And good night from our backyard…

Thank goodness, it’s Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯¨β€οΈ

Constructing Northside.

The sign said they were supposed to start construction work on our street today. They city has been replacing the water mains on our side of Northside. Pretty much most everyone moved their cars up to the end of the street in anticipation of the work…

Good morning from Northside…

There were a couple of stragglers still parked on our street this morning…

Mid-morning, we were still waiting for the work to begin…

Finally mid-afternoon, a guy was walking a pavement cutter down our street…

And that was pretty much all the action that we saw all day. Come to find out that they were working at the very South end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

They have a lot of work to do if they’re going to be done by Friday. πŸ˜¬πŸš§πŸ’¦β€οΈ

It’s a sign.

Tomorrow, they’re going to start working on replacing the water main on our street…

This should make for an interesting next few days. πŸ˜¬πŸš§πŸ’¦β€οΈ

It was almost like being on vacation.

This morning we walked the four blocks to Sidewinder to get coffee…

Waking up early on a sunny, warm, beautiful morning and walking to get coffee, it felt like being on vacation. It was a wonderful way to start a Sunday at home. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

Not surprisingly, Western Bowl is closed. Because everything is closed…

We ran out to the Westside to pick up our taxes this morning. We’re getting money back from both state and federal. πŸ˜€πŸ’°πŸŽ³β€οΈ

It’s a sign.

I’ve never noticed just how bright the sign for Aster on Fourth glowed…

Aster is one of our favorite bars downtown. πŸ˜€πŸŒŸβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

Back House. πŸ˜€βš οΈβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

For tomorrow’s Northside Flea

We’ll have to try to check it out tomorrow. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ€οΈ

UPDATE: We totally missed the Northside Flea. 😐
