The laziest Sunday.

We didn’t do a dang thing today. But we did go get to-go Burger King in Finneytown…

We placed our order through the Burger King app. And it turns out there are a bunch of really good deals and coupons on the BK app. We got two Original Chicken Sammiches with two small fries for just $4.99. I mean, we got a bunch of other stuff too. The only bummer part was that you could only use one deal per order. But there were a lot of deals to choose from…

I love BK. It’s probably my favorite fast food. Burger King and Freddy’s. But we never really eat fast food unless we are on road trips. We need to go on more road trips. Because our BK was so good.

We were in the backyard with the dogs, When we went to go inside, Genifer picked up her sweater off the chair and this weird little caterpillar was on it…

Good evening from Northside…

And that was pretty much our Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ›โค๏ธ

The first day of Summer.

Today was the first day of Summer! And it’s Saturday. Good morning from Northside…

For breakfast, I tried one of these Kodiak Cake Blueberry & Maple Flapjack Cups…

It was pretty darn good for just a little microwave pancake cup. Later, we walked down to Blue Jay to get some lunch…

Genifer ordered a huge Greek salad with a side of french fries and I ordered two cheese coneys with a side of french fries as well…

Look at the size of this pepperoncini that came with Genifer’s salad…

It was almost as big as my cheese coney. I ate it. It was really spicy. I probably wouldn’t do that again. It made my eyes water. Other than that mistake, lunch at Blue Jay was great as always.

When we were walking home, we couldn’t help but notice that the front of the Jackson Hewitt tax office was all smashed in…

Apparently last night, someone ran the red light at the corner of Chase and Hamilton and lost control of their vehicle and smashed into the front of this office, which is right on the street corner. People running red lights has become a real problem in Cincinnati. At least one or two cars go through every traffic light after the light turns red.

On our way home, we also stopped to get more milkshakes from Tickle Pickle

Their Flan Halen strawberry milkshake is my favorite.

And then we were pretty lazy again. At least, Premier League soccer is back on TV…

I woke up super early and caught the end of the Doosan Bears Korean baseball game, The Bears won 8-2. Leicester City drew 1-1 against Watford. And my Arsenal lost 2-1 to Brighton Hove & Albion. It’s really nice to have some sports back in my life. It makes things almost feel sort of normal again. Even though life is still not normal at all.

But it was a very pretty first day of Summer…

And a very good evening from Northside…

We’re having a pretty low-key start of Summer weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Northside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We walked down to Blue Jay for lunch this afternoon…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheese with tomatoes…

I ordered Blue Jay’s chicken tender sammich…

We walked all the way down to Second Place to have a bourbon slush but come to find out that 2P doesn’t open until 3pm right now. They should really post their hours on their social media or something. So we just walked back to Higher Gravity for a beer…

I wish I could find this beer…

HG had some interesting looking beers in their cooler…

I tried one of these coffee vanilla cream ales from Columbus and it was delicious…

It was really nice to get out and get out to some places. We walked home and hung out in our backyard…

And good evening from Northside…

It was a low-key but still really good Northside Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

We ate this.

Genifer made crescent roll vegetable pizza for lunch this afternoon…

I love crescent roll vegetable pizza. It’s one of those things I never get very often for whatever reason. Crescent rolls with cream cheese and vegetables,ย  what’s not to like? And there was extra broccoli. Broccoli is one of my very favorite vegetables…

For dinner, we fired up the grill again…

YUM! Everything always tastes better on the grill. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Smile for burgers!

I had an early afternoon meeting. When my meeting was over, Genifer got home from work super early. And we got to have lunch together. We had leftover cheeseburgers from the grill from a couple days ago

My cheeseburger had a smile one it…

And we had some curly fries with burgers…

YUM! What a great lunch. Especially since I got to eat cheeseburgers and french fries with my baby. For lunch. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Domino’s Pizza party!

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to have a Dominos Pizza party with Geri, Cleve, Alyssa and Pippa…

It was good to see everyone. And Dominos Pizza is really good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Afternoon in our backyard.

It was so gorgeous outside this afternoon. The weather tablet in our office said it was an unseasonably warm 87ยบ outside…

Oscar’s groomer was deemed non-essential when the closed all the Ohio businesses. He’s gotten so shaggy over the six weeks. And you could tell lately he’s just been really warm and uncomfortable…

So this afternoon we tried to give Oscar a haircut…

I’ve cut my hair twice so far during the stay home. It’s turned out pretty nice both times.
I thought, “How hard could it be to cut Oscar’s hair?”

It turns out that cutting Oscar’s hair is a lot harder…

I didn’t do a very good job. At all…

Dang. Sorry, buddy. I have a new respect for the amazing job Lauren at VCA College Hill does with Oscar.

Later, we fired up the grill again…

Those burgers were just out of this world. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

UPDATE: Oscar’s groomer has started to take appointments again starting May 13th and he has an appointment for Friday, May 15th. So he won’t have to be uncomfortable for much longer and maybe she can even out the mess I made of his coat.

Today was a good day.

We got coffee from Sidewinder this morning and they spelled my name with two D’s…

Grey gave us the afternoon off for Easter weekend. Thanks, Grey!

This afternoon, we ran over to Genifer’s office to pickup a laptop. And on the way home, we stopped to get Skyline carry-out for lunch…

Hello, delicious cheese coneys…

Ohmigosh. We haven’t had Skyline in forever! It was sooo good. And later this evening, we ran down the street to Northside Yacht Club

We picked up some Miller High Life’s and some of NSYC’s famous peanut tequila…

Cheers to the weekend! We wished we would have had the peanut butter tequila for last weekend’s Front Porch Pours. We just hung out, had some drinks and listened to music tonight. It was a good day. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

We survived another week of shelter-in-place. Four weeks down.

Social distancing pizza party.

We took delicious Donato’s pizzas and salads out to Geri in West Chester to check on her and make sure she was doing okay in the midst of COVID-19…

She is hanging in there, just like all of us. And the pizzas were delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅ—โค๏ธ

Panda Express.

So believe it or not, we’ve never eaten at a Panda Express. This afternoon we found ourselves out on the Westside at Western Hills Plaza, and we decided to try Panda Express for the very first time…

It was odd trying a place for the first time during a pandemic. There were blue tape lines on the floor so everyone knew how far to stay apart…

It was our turn to order. And there were so many delicious looking options…

We learned that at Panda Express you choose your meal size: a bowl (1 entree & 1 side), plate (2 entrees & 1 side) OR bigger plate (3 entrees & 1 side). And then you choose your entree and side. Panda Express has a bunch of different entree choices…

Genifer ordered a bowl of the Kung Pao Chicken with fried rice. I ordered a plate with Orange Chicken and Mushroom Chicken with fried rice…

Panda Express was really, really good stuff. I think we just found a new place to stop for lunch whenever we find ourselves over on the Westside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ
