We didn’t really do much for St. Patrick’s Day this year. But enjoy these classics…

Saturday, March 13th.

We found ourselves up in Centerville this morning. And we got to check out My Favorite Muffin

We both got bagel breakfast sammiches…

And we got four muffins…

This was sugar cookie muffin covered in sprinkles…

And there were more sprinkles inside the muffin…

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

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.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! It was a chilly Christmas in Cincinnati…

And we woke up to a white Christmas…

We got the dogs a bunch of new dog toys and blankets for Christmas…

I took a little video of the dogs coming in from outside to discover all their new toys…

And now the dogs have a very full box of toys…

After the dogs got to play with their toys for a bit, we took them out on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made Magic Middles for breakfast this morning…

Magic Middles are delicious…

After breakfast, we opened our presents and exchanged our gifts. My parents sent us this hilarious 2020 ornament…

A huge thank you so much to my mom & dad for all our wonderful Christmas gifts…

There was a bit of debate over this advent calendar…

I thought we should start at one, count along with the days and end on twenty-five. Genifer thought we should start on twenty-five and countdown to one and end on the star. And you can see who won that debate…

This afternoon we headed up to West Chester to celebrate Christmas with Geri. We took some shrimps, a meat & cheese tray, a whole bunch of dippers and that was our Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful time spending the afternoon with her.

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After the dog’s were done with the freezing cold walk, we watched a bunch of basketball and called it a day. We had a really wonderful Christmas day. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ

A pretty low-key Sunday.

It was really chilly and frosty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had a big breakfast this morning…

Eggo waffles with scrambled eggs and sausages! And it was terrific. We never have big breakfasts.

Hello, Oscar. He looks so handsome with his new haircut…

And we had Thanksgiving part three for a late lunch after Arsenal lost this afternoon…

And then it was just a lot of hanging out on our new sofa until we took the dogs on their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

It was pretty sunny all day. But it started getting more and more overcast the closer we got to Monday…

Tonight, we watched both The Princess Switch and The Princess Switch: Switched Again on Netflix. The first one was pretty cute. The second one was still cute but a bit of a stretch. While we were watching our Netflix movies on the TV, I was also keeping tabs on Michigan as they survived overtime against Oakland. The same Oakland that Xavier destroyed by 52 on Wednesday.

We had a pretty low-key Sunday. But it was a really good one. Low-key Sundays are the best Sundays. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿง‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆƒโ˜๏ธโค๏ธ

Pizza for a dreary day.

It was very dreary, grey and rainy morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning I got to start eating the Sweetwater’s long johns that I brought home from with us from Kalamazoo. I brought home two vanilla-filled and chocolate-filled long johns…

Their donuts are just so amazing.

For dinner tonight, we got ordered pizza from the Dominos in Clifton…

We usually get out Dominos pizza from Finneytown. We didn’t realize there was one in Clifton. Clifton is so much closer to us…

Genifer like the hand-tossed with pepperoni and I like the pan with sausage…

And we got Dominos Marbled Cookie Brownieโ„ข…

Dominos was really good stuff. It definitely hit the spot.

And good evening from Northside…

We watched game one of the World Series. I hope Tampa Bay beats the Dodgers. And that was our rainy Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŒง๏ธโค๏ธ

Good morning from Indy.

Good morning from downtown Indianapolis…

Across the street from our hotel was Cafe Patachou

I ordered a Belgian waffle with fruit…

It was delicious. But Genifer completely out-ordered me with her incredible croissant french toast…

Cafe Patachou had some amazing coffees. When we were done with our breakfast, we got coffees to go and some snacks for later…

Thanks, Indianapolis! We had a blast!

And then it was back to Cincinnati…

On the way home, we stopped to pick up Mack from The Pet Spot

We’ll get Oscar and Bear from Geri’s after our fence is done. I think Mack was pretty happy to be home…

And we were really excited to try these guys later…

It was a great, really quick little adventure. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ๐Ÿง‡โค๏ธ

Crumb cake & NYPD hoagies.

It was hard to get back into the swing of things today. Genifer got me this delicious crumb cake from Napoli Cafe when we stopped for coffee in North Top Sail Beach as we were starting our trip back home…

I didn’t go into Napoli Cafe with Genifer. I stayed in the car with Oscar…

Look at all that crumb topping…

It was as much crumb topping as it was cake. And it was delicious. Really good. One of the inadvertent themes of our trip was crumb cakes and crumbles. Without trying, I ate three crumb cakes during our trip. I think this last one was my favorite. It made getting back to work this morning a little bit easier.

I must be out of practice and a little bit rusty. This morning, I completely forgot to take photos of the sky from the top of the hill at the end of our street. But I made sure to remember this evening…

So good evening from Northside. We need to make a trip to the grocery store. We don’t really have very much food in our house right now. At all. So this evening we had an NYPD hoagie sammich party

NYPD isn’t just for pizza parties. Their hoagie sammiches are really good as well. Genifer’s favorite is NYPD’s Italian. And my favorite is their chicken fajita with bacon crumbles added. We always add a family-sized order of fries. The good part of not having any food in the house is getting to go out to eat which makes it kind of feel like we’re still on vacation. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ
