I’m really bad at painting.

The trees colors are starting to change up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get Friday morning coffee…

And good evening from Northside…

We had delicious ramen noodles for dinner tonight…

We’ve been working on staining our new backyard fence

It turns out I’m not very good at painting at all…

Thank goodness it’s Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿœโค๏ธ

Hello October.

It’s pretty crazy to me that today is the first day of October…

For still being in the middle of a global pandemic, stuck at home and not really being able to do much of anything, this year certainly has flown right by. I would like my 2020 back, please. I think we should all get to take a mulligan for this year and get to try 2020 over again next year.

They weren’t working on our street this morning. So we got to go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street and say…

Good morning from Northside!

This is what the street looked like in front of our house this morning…

But a little while later, they filled it in with asphalt…

And good evening from Northside…

We ordered hoagie sammiches from NYPD

And after we stuffed our faces full of delicious NYPD hoagie sammiches and french fries, we played ball in our backyard and we watched the beautiful sunset clouds….

It’s just really nuts that it’s already October. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

It ended up being another grey and overcast day today but just like yesterday, the clouds were so pretty. This morning, this evening, and later from our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

And Genifer made this terrific cheesy turkey, sweet potato, and spinach skillet bake for dinner tonight…

It was so delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. Other than that, it was just another Wednesday. I’m ready for this week to be over. And I really can’t wait until they’re finally done working on the water main on our street so we can go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street in the mornings. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒฅ๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

A day of pretty skies.

The clouds were really pretty when we woke up this morning…

But it was getting pretty gray when we were taking the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on our street again this morning…

I’ve really enjoyed watching all the machines from our WyzeCams

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. We had the Stroganoff Pork Meatballs with potatoes and peas againโ€ฆ

The stroganoff sauce was so good we had to have this meal again. And it was another really delicious dinner the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

It was sprinkling a little bit as we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

The sky was really pretty this evening…

It was a really beautiful blue-gray.

And the sunset was even prettier from our backyard…

It was just a day of very pretty skies. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธโค๏ธ

We watched Enola Holmes on Netflix tonight. It was pretty good.

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ท๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

Or maybe tomorrow?

They showed up bright and early to start working on our street again…

And the drilling started in front of our house…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we popped our flowers out of the ground…

It was well after 1pm and they still weren’t working on our house yet…

And they must have accidentally hit the water main…

Because all of a sudden, our street was a river. Again

And that was all they managed to get accomplished today.

Good evening from Northside…

Our street is a patchwork quilt of steel plates right now…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Stroganoff Pork Meatballs with potatoes and peasโ€ฆ

It was another really delicious dinner. The stroganoff sauce has always been one of my favorites. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

Maybe they’ll work on our house tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿšง๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿœโค๏ธ

The start of another week.

They were supposed to starting to work on our street again today…

Good morning from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express mealsย for dinner tonight. This one was Cheddar Bacon Crusted Chicken with ranch potatoes…

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

We played some ball in the backyard…

And good evening from Northside…

As far as Mondays go, it was a pretty good Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

It was a good Thursday.

Good morning from Northside…

I had creamy chicken noodle sup for lunch today…

Mack and I played in the backyard for a bit…

And we had grilled cheeses for dinner…

And thank you notes are the best…

๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

It’s starting to feel like autumn.

Here’s another photo of our new little side yard…

And our new little garden hose post…

Good morning from Northside…

The sky was so hazy again this morning…

We walked to get coffees from Sidewinder

When we were out in Duck, I got this huge tub of cheese balls. And today with lunch, I ate the very last cheese ball…

It was kind of hazy all day long…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made the autumn sausage veggie & apple sheet pan.
It’s one of our favorites…

And it’s actually starting to feel like autumn again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‚โค๏ธ
