Just a low-key Monday.

We both had today off work…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I always like to check out the different balloons…

And then it was time for coffee…

Later, we had sausages and pasta salad for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

We got some NYPD calzones for dinner…

It had been a minute since we had NYPD calzones. They were so good. We both ate our entire calzone. And then we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

It was a pretty nice, very low-key Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽˆπŸŒ­πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad out there…

Good morning from Northside…

Today was the first day of summer. And there wasn’t any rain in the forecast today so we got to work on our backyard…

We dumped 15 bags of pea gravel and 15 bags of river rocks and 15 drainage rocks in our backyard this afternoon…

I think we’re going to need a lot more rocks.

We got cleaned up and headed over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Today, Taft’s had a specialty cheesesteak pizza for Father’s Day…

And it was delicious! Everything they do is amazing.

Good evening from Northside…

Two of the best words in all of sports… GAME. SEVEN.

We’re so happy with how our backyard is progressing. And any day that involved Taft’s pizza is a really good day. This was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸΎβ€οΈ

A Sunday pizza party!!

Our front yard is still looks pretty nice…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a Sun day pizza party…

We shared a house salad and a white pizza with chicken, cherry tomatoes and arugula…

Their special item today was mozzarella sticks…

Ohmigosh. Taft’s is so good. It’s one of our favorites…

And it was a beautiful Sunday evening so we hung out on our back patiio for a bit…

We can’t wait to keep working on our backyard. It’s going to be so awesome…

We had a really good Sunday.

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❀️

Already three times this year.

As we were getting up and moving this morning, there was a loud pop that we could hear over our sound machine and then we lost power.

Oh. And it’s still grey and overcast…

Good morning from Northside…

On our way home from our walk, Duke Energy was already arriving on our street…

They had our power back on a little before 9 am. But I think this was already the third time we’ve lost power this year. And that’s a little worrisome. The Duke Energy website said there was an animal on the line. Poor squirrels.

Anyway, we have a lot of blooms in our front yard…

We had cheesy turkey wraps on the panini press for lunch …

The panini press has become one of my favorite little kitchen appliances.

After we finished our work day, we went on our walk and the sun was out!

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered El Taco Veloz through DoorDash…

Genifer gets the kids quesadilla with a side of beans and rice…

And I love their ground beef chimi…

El Taco Veloz is sooo good. I love that there is a service that will bring me a chimichanga whenever I really need one. What an amazingly wonderful world we live in.

If you look really close just above the leaf in the dirt, there was a little baby bird in the back corner of our backyard…

I don’t think the little bird had mastered flying yet, it would flap it’s wing but wouldn’t go anywhere. Eventually, it hopped through a gap in our fence where the side meets the back. Hopefully, it figures out how to fly pretty soon.

When we got upstairs, I was looking out our front window and I got the impression that tonight’s sunset might be really pretty…

I went back down to check it out in our backyard…

But it was just an okay sunset. But it was a really good day. We watched a couple more episodes of Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. And I’m super excited because the Euro Championship starts tomorrrow afternoon! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ«”β€οΈ

Dogs are pretty funny.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl at the same time again…

I made a cheesy chicken nugget wrap for lunch…

It started sprinkle on us while we were on our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

At the bottom of the stairs, the sounds of the cicadas was it’s loudest…

When we got home, Oscar started looking for a very specific dog toy…

He kept pulling out toys and setting them in a pile while he dug for the one he really wanted…

Apparently, he was looking for one of the Nylabones…

And then he never really chewed on it. Dogs are pretty funny. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ

Burritos, berries and Ragnarok.

It was another grey and overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Drunken Tacos through DoorDash for lunch…

We ordered the Loco Pollo Burrito with chicken, refried beans, lettuce, queso fresco and topped with queso blanco…

And we ordered the Bulgogi Burrito with marinated Korean beef, grilled onions, jalapeΓ±os and topped with spicy mayo…

And we ordered a couple of tacos…

The tacos were pretty good. But the burritos were just out of this world!

The sun made an appearance this afternoon after we were done eating…

Good evening from Northside…

And our side yard sidewalk was covered in berries again. This was after sweeping them all up earlier this morning…

This evening, we finished Ragnarok on Netflix. And now we’re going to have to find something else to watch.

Happy Memorial Day!

Today was Memorial Day…

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country…

We got up early this morning to run over to the grocery…

And we got coffee…

We took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We trimmed our front yard grass…

Geri came over for lunch. And Genifer made Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken

It was delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. And there was Carvel’s original ice cream cake…

We hung out in our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

We have some more blooms in our front yard…

It was so pretty today, we hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a very nice Memorial Day and a wonderful long holiday weekend.
πŸ˜€πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ‘β€οΈ

The start of a long weekend.

Today was the start of a long, four-day holiday weekend…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We got Mad Llama coffee…

We also stopped at Home Goods…

And we got Potbelly for lunch…

Ohmigosh. Potbelly is so good…

I put my new little stool in our studio office…

We spread some more pea gravel on our side yard…

It started sprinkling on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And it really started raining just as soon as we got home…

Whenever it really rains, there’s always a waterfall cascading from the gutters and down off the side of the neighbors house…

Somehow the water always seems to drain pretty quickly. But it doesn’t really cause us any problems. I’ve just never seen a gutter waterfall like that.

Right now, Oscar’s favorite toy is his hedgehog…

He’ll hide it and then forget where it’s been hidden…

And then he gets so excited when he finds it again…

We dodged the raindrops and went out in the backyard for potty breaks…

We watched Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse on Amazon Video. It was pretty good. And we finished Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix. For a super hero series, it was the slowest burning show I think I’ve ever seen. It was ten episodes of nothing but back story and character development. I bet the second season would have been pretty good if it hadn’t already been cancelled.

And that was our Friday. It was a pretty good one. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Pizza Party Thursday.

Good morning from Northside…

We had more delicious panini roll-ups for lunch today…

They were taking the final chunks of the tree away…

Good evening from Northside…

One of our little bushes in our front yard has a little blossom now too…

We had an NYPD Pizza Party Thursday…

And we had to get the cheese garlic bread…

You just have to get the bread. It’s only $2.99…

Pizza Party Thursdays are the best Thursdays. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ―πŸŒΌπŸ•β€οΈ
