A quick trip to GABP.

Good morning from Northside…

We had to run a couple of errands this morning, and we picked up McDonald’s on the way home. We literally haven’t had McDonald’s in years…

And now we can go another five or so years before we have it again.

Good evening from Northside…

Today was the 10-year anniversary of our first date. We went to a Reds game. Tonight, the Reds actually had a home game against the Cubs. So we went down to GABP to celebrate where it all started ten years ago…

Ten years ago, we sat down the first baseline. We were waited too long to get tickets for today’s game, and got tickets up in the upper deck down the third baseline, where we used to sit back when we had our season tickets…

The Reds just recently increased capacity at GABP from 30% to 40%. The seating set-up was really weird. If we would have sat in our assigned seats, we would have been sitting right in front of people in the row behind us. We didn’t understand how that was maintaining our six feet of social distancing. It kind of made us uncomfortable, so we ventured off to find somewhere to stand to watch the game. Hopefully, someplace with some sun because it was kinda chilly at he ballpark tonight…

We only stayed at the game for a few innings. We were cold and we were leaving in the morning on our road trip. We packed it in so we could go home to finish packing and hang out with Mack and Oscar…

It was incredible to be back at GABP. It was already our third Reds game of the season…

And now we’re all packed for our road trip tomorrow…

We’re excited to start our adventure. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸŸβšΎοΈβ€οΈ

Westside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We went out to The Westside to sign our tax documents to be sent off to the tax people…

We’re getting a little money back from federal and state and broke even with Cincinnati.

While we were over there, we stopped at the grocery for some dog food…

And then we stopped at Jersey Mike’s Subs to get lunch to take home with us…

I had only ever eaten at Jersey Mike’s one other time a long time ago. I don’t even remember what I ordered. This time I got the #56 Big Kahuna and it was really good.

Other than that, we were pretty lazy. We’ve been watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

There were a couple of good photos in my Timehop today. First was Oscar riding around in the back of our Jetta…

And there was this photo proving that once there was indeed grass in our backyard…

And this photo of Mack all crashed out…

A morning without power.

Good morning from Northside…

We lost power this morning after we got back from our walk. The power company said power was scheduled to return around 1pm. We ran out to get Skyline for a lunch a little bit before noon…

When we got home with our lunch, the power came back on. And it was Skyline time!

And then it was time to get to work.

Good evening from Northside…

There was really pretty light coming into the back of our house…

Today really made me really appreciate having electricity. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βš‘οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ

And chicken tenders for later.

Good morning from Northside…

We got NYPD hoagies for lunch today…

And I got chicken tenders for lunch tomorrow.

Good evening from Northside…

There was a 99.9% full moon tonight over Northside…

And this evening we watched Michigan thump Florida State to reach the Elite Eight…

Two years ago, we were watching Opening Day baseball and having Habenero Mango Oberons at Pony…

Gosh. I miss baseball and Pony. Still, we had a pretty good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ₯ͺπŸŸπŸ€β€οΈ

Chicken nugs for an overcast day.

Saturday, March 20th.

Today was the first day of Spring. And it felt like it…

We walked to Blue Jay for lunch…

We walked over to Boswell’s Alley to watch Michigan’s first round tournament game against Texas Southern. After the game, we stopped to have a few drinks at Northside Tavern. And on the way home, we picked up hoagies from NYPD. We had a really good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ­πŸ»β™₯️

Saturday, March 6th.

I’d never seen all The Hobbit movies. So tonight, we started watching the trilogy…

Friday, March 5th.

Genifer picked up Oscar…

And she also picked up Tropical Smoothie Cafe for our lunch…

We had pesto tortellini for dinner tonight…

We’ve been watching Good Girl on Netflix. It’s been… entertaining. We’re about halfway through season three.

The Hi-Mark hits the mark.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery…

And we stopped for Saturday morning coffee…

This afternoon we ventured over to the East End of Cincinnati…

We met our friends Ben and Mehwish at The Hi-Mark

We had so much fun getting to hang out for a bit…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a very fun Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ»β€β„οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ”πŸŸβ™₯️

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ
