Snowy and not so snowy.

It was very snowy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

By this evening, all the snow was gone. Good evening from Northside…

We watched some soccer and some basketball. But we just had another really nice lazy, relaxing Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Happy Saturday!

It’s Saturday! Happy Saturday!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

And Ice Bear was still locked inside the claw grab machine…

And there was only one panda and the trains were all sold out…

We always liked 21st Amendment’s Hell or High Watermelon. But we’ve never seen Hell or High Mango before. We’ll have to give it a try sometime…

And we saw this M-43 NE IPA from Old Nation Brewing in Williamston, Michigan over on the other side of Lansing…

I’d never really heard of One Nation Brewing or Williamston before. There were still some football balloons before next weekend’s Superb Owl big game…

And there were some Valentine’s Day balloons…

Bunches and bunches of Valentine’s Day balloons…

We stopped at Biggby for coffee…

And we had a BOGO…

We’re saving our Christmas Biggby gift cards for when we don’t have a free one…

Mmmmm… Biggby…

Arsenal played a nil-nil draw with United. And Xavier resumed their season, picking up right where they left off with a 13 point win at Butler.

Good evening from Northside…

And later it started snowing…

It started snowing kind of a lot for us. We were watching the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We watched The White Tiger on Netflix and then started season one of Unit 42. The White Tiger was pretty good and Unit 42 is just pretty okay. And that was our Saturday It was a pretty happy Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽˆβ˜•οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Today was a really good day.

Today was my birthday. Apparently, there was a full moon last night and we could still sort of see it out of our bathroom window this morning…

There were some really pretty clouds this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the Kroger Fuel Station to fill up…

We had 80Β’ off per gallon thanks to our Kroger Fuel points…

And then we ran over to Mad Llama for birthday coffee…

JAVA WHIPS!

And it was 29ΒΊ on January 29th…

Good evening from Northside…

Birthday presents!

We had a $10 off coupon from DoorDash so we ordered dinner from China Food

We ordered so much food…

But it was delicious. We can’t wait to order more dinners from China Food.

Later, we watched the Mavs lose to the Jazz. Bummer. And over in the Big Ten, #19 Illinois knocked off #7 Iowa…

Afterward, I saw this on Twitter

And there was this one. 🀣 Poor Sparty. They’re having a rough year. I really miss Michigan basketball. I can’t wait until they’re done with their quarantine.

I had a really wonderful birthday. Especially for being in the middle of a pandemic…

Thank you for all the cards and birthday wishes. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β›½οΈβ˜•οΈπŸŽπŸ₯‘❀️

A different Thursday pizza party.

It was very pretty all day today. It was really cold. But the sky was pretty all day…

Good morning from Northside…

We broke camp a little early this afternoon to go run and pick up pizza for our Thursday night pizza party…

But tonight, we got Domino’s for our pizza party, and we were pretty excited…

Ohmigosh. It was so good. We love pizza. We hadn’t had Dominos in a bit. Soooo good.

After we stuffed our faces, we took the dogs out around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

Oscar has been working on his hedgehog’s nose for a while now. He chews on it almost every night and it’s getting comically long…

He loves that dang hedgehog. It’s one of his favorite toys.

And speaking of favorites, I love the comic book, Usagi Yojimbo. I lost track of it for a while. But recently, I rediscovered just how amazing the graphic novels are. Stan Sakai, the artist who created the series, is one of my favorite artists. I learned so many things about art and drawing from his his comics. I saw on Instagram that Usagi Yojimbo is coming to Netflix

This has the potential to be so amazing if it stays true to the original. I’m very excited. Almost as excited as I was for our pizza tonight. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ•πŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

We got a little snow.

This morning, we took the dogs all the way around the block…

Good morning from Northside…

It started snowing this afternoon…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadΒ another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Chicken Thigh Shawarma Wild Rice Bowl with tzatziki sauce…

It was another really delicious meal. Chicken and rice bowls are terrific. And we love anything with tzatziki sauce. We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

A lot of my favorite basketball teams aren’t playing because of COVID-19. Just tonight, Wichita State, Michigan and Grizzlies all had games postponed…

Thank goodness they haven’t paused all the games and we could watch some other games tonight. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ€πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Hello, Ice Bear.

We got up pretty early this morning and it was still a little dark…

Good morning from Northside…

Before we got to work, we ran over to the grocery store because we didn’t feel like going over the weekend…

Ice Bear was still trapped in the claw machine…

And there were some great balloons. I still really like the frog balloons…

And the hummingbird bird was pretty neat too…

And we stopped to get some Biggby Coffee too..

And then we got down to business and knocked out all our work…

Tonight, we watched Snowpiercer on Netflix. We’re pretty late to the game on this one but it’s one of those Dystopian future society movies. We watched it. It was bad. So bad that three days later, we’re still talking about the plot holes in this movie, why they decided to save humanity from another Ice Age with a train that circumnavigates the globe and why that is quite possibly the dumbest way to save mankind. There was talk about putting together a Powerpoint presentation on just why it was so bad just in case this movie ever came up in conversation. I don’t know who we would be talking to, but we’d be ready just in case. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Also, come to find out Snowpiercer is a mini-series on TNT starring Sean Bean and Jennifer Connelly? My only question is… Whyyy?! I think we’re going to give that one a hard pass.

Another overcast Monday.

You could tell it was Monday because it was so grey and overcast outside.

Good morning from Northside…

And it was still very overcast this evening…

In fact, it looked nearly identical to this morning…

And good evening from Northside…

We went and picked up some Wendy’s for a gloomy Monday treat for dinner…

Genifer had a spicy chicken sammich. I ordered a Baconator. But we ended up with two spicy chicken sammiches somehow. And that was kind of a bummer because I was looking forward to my burger. But the chicken was good too. And the third bag was full of chicken nuggets, if you were wondering.

I don’t remember exactly what we watched this evening. But I know we watched a handful of movies on Amazon Prime Video recently. We’ve watched Hangman, Widows Point, Death of a Vlogger and 47 Hours to Live, not necessarily in that order. They were all pretty bad. Prime Video is the home of bad movies. There have been a few good ones over the years, but they’re mostly really bad. Death of a Vlogger made just jump a few times. But there are only so many movies on Netflix and with a handful of our sports teams having their season put on pause, desperate times call for desperate measures. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ”πŸŸπŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

The laziest of lazy Sundays.

It was a rainy Sunday. And we had the laziest of lazy Sundays. This morning we watched the Chelsea and Leicester FA Cup matches. Unlike Arsenal, both teams advanced to the next round.

Good morning from Northside…

We picked up some NYPD hoagies for lunch today…

While we were eating lunch, we perused some VRBO spots…

NYPD hoagies are so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We watched the NFL playoff games. My biggest fear was that the Packers and Chiefs would both win and we’d have a State Farm Superb Owl. But thankfully, there’s the greatest of all time, Tom Brady…

A Taft’s pizza Saturday.

Happy Saturday! Good morning from Northside…

After Arsenal was knocked out of the FA Cup at the hands of Southampton this afternoon, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a late lunch to get some pizza…

Genifer tried Taft’s hard seltzer and it was really good…

And I tried Nellie’s Lemon Frosty Ale

And it was very good as well. Lunch time!

Taft’s had deep fried pickles today…

They also had a special buffalo chicken pizza today…

And of course, we ordered the Cherrywood BBQ wings too…

Taft’s is so good. We used our gift card from Christmas again. And we’ll still be able to get one more trip out of it. Thanks, mom & dad!

The moon was so bright this evening and you could see a lot of stars…

Good evening from Northside…

And the clouds were really pretty these evening too..

Also, any day that includes Taft’s pizza is really good day as well. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΊπŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

And good night from Northside…

The sun was out all day. And we just had a really low-key Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ
