Just another Tuesday.

There really haven’t been many very pretty sunrises so far this summer. When I look out our window in the morning, the colors are pretty but there haven’t been any clouds. And the clouds are what make the sunrises beautiful, in my opinion.

Look at how pretty the sky was this morning from our third-floor bedroom window…

And one through the filters of Instagram

And when I checked back after taking a shower, the clouds started to go away…

And good morning from Northside…

I finished the last of our Cosmic Stars cereal from Meijer…

Now the next time we go to Kroger, I can get more Shining Stars.Β 

Oscar was just hanging out in the front bedroom while I was working today…

And we had sammiches from NYPD for dinner tonight…

NYPD has really good hoagie sammiches. They’re are much to look at, just hoagie rolls piled high with toppings. Genifer usually orders the Italian. And I usually go for the chicken fatija sammich. Like I said, they’re really good. Next time we have them, I’ll be sure to take a photo of them.

And I don’t know how I missed my good evening from Northside photo tonight. I bet it looked a lot like yesterdays photo. And that was pretty much our Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

We made it through Monday.

Good morning from Northside…

Why do Mondays always have to be so grey and overcast?

Today, I found this on the intertubes…

Yeah. I don’t know either. We didn’t get grilled cheeses. We had BLTs for dinner…

I love BLTs. It’s crazy how such a simple sammich can be so dang good. I put some turkey and cheese on my sammich. So I guess it was actually more of a turkey club sammich if you think about it. But it was really good though.

Good evening from Northside…

Still gloomy. But we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸ₯“πŸ₯¬πŸ…πŸ§€β€οΈ

Fitbit India badge.

Today, I earned another Fitbit badgeΒ fromΒ my Fitbit Charge3…

How cool is that? We love walking. And that’s a lot of steps! πŸ˜€βš‘οΈβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ›β€οΈ

Fantasy basketball 2020.

share.png

I played NBA fantasy basketball again this year. It seems like it was forever ago that was anxiously approaching another undefeated season. But then all the COVID-19 happened. And the world, including all sports, ground to a halt for months. And our Dallas Mavericks were the default NBA Champions. I was kind of hoping the season would start back up and we could finish out this fantasy basketball season. But it looks like that’s not going to happen now…

Back on June 4, the NBA elected to move forward with a 22-team formatΒ to finish its regular season, which was postponed on March 11 due to theΒ coronavirus pandemic. With an incomplete collection of teams playing for the remainder of the season, the ESPN Fantasy Basketball season is complete.

And that’s that. I played eight teams this season. I had teams three finish in first…

Four teams finished in second…

And one team finished third…

It would have been way more fun to get to run through the fantasy basketball playoffs. But what are you going to do? COVID-19 has made a mess of everything. Still, the fantasy basketball season was pretty dang fun again while the season lasted.

Hopefully, there’ll be an uninterrupted fantasy basketball season next year.Β  πŸ˜€πŸ€πŸ†β€οΈ

Timehopping.

Two years ago, I was recovering from my second hip replacement surgery…

Three years ago today, FC Cincinnati’s magical 2017 US Open Cup run continued as FC|C defeated Chicago Fire on penalties in the Round of 16.Β It was an amazing night that will forever be etched in Cincinnati sports lore…

Thinking about that night still gives me chills.

And four years ago, we officially moved into our house in Northside…

Unpacking is just the worst. I’m glad we’re all settled into our great big house now. And we said goodbye to our little apartment downtown…

Five years ago, Cincinnati was getting ready to host the MLB All-Star Game…

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop.Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ•β€οΈ

 

Flowers & March First.

Good morning from Northside. It was pretty grey and overcast…

This morning we ran over to Lowe’s get a few things. I really liked these flowers…

They are so pretty. I want to get some of them. We’ll just have to figure out where we can put them. Maybe we could put them on the side of our house after our backyard fence is replaced in the beginning of September. So maybe next summer?

Later, we headed out to suburbia to have lunch at March First Brewing

We started with a flight of stouts and porters…

All of the beers in our flight were really tasty. We tried a couple of their seltzers. Genifer had their peach and I had their watermelon. Both of them were really delicious…

And we shared one of their Hawaiian pizzas…

Their Hawaiian pizza was so good. It was kind of unusual because they put pulled pork on top of it. But it worked really well and it was delicious. We really like March First.

We brought home a six-pack of their Astra Bomb Pop seltzer

It was supposed to taste just like a Bomb Pop. And they nailed it. I swear you could even taste the little wooden stick in the middle. It was really a great seltzer. It was so good that we just sat out on our back porch and drank them all this evening.

It was a pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒΌπŸΊπŸ•β€οΈ

Coasting into the weekend.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Kroger to get a few groceries. I noticed these crazy striped peppers in the produce section. I’ve never seen anything like them before…

And of course, we stopped at Biggby Coffee…Β 

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this vegetable tikka masala over rice…

For just a little pouch you warm up and serve over rice, it was really outstanding. Next time we’re at Whole Foods, we definitely going to have to get some more. It was really surprisingly good for how easy it was to prepare.

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty good Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ›β€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Five years ago, we went up north to visit my parents in Michigan…

Milan made the trip with us, and he just loved my exploring parent’s backyard…

And a couple that didn’t make it to Instagram…

This one was in my Timehop too…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

NYPD Pizza party!

Good morning from Northside. It was a very pretty morning…

Looking through my sunglasses, it looked like there was a dust storm or something along the horizon in the distance. I tried to take a photo of it through my glasses…

It was weird that I could only really see it through my glasses. So I wonder if it was my eyes playing tricks on me because I was just reading about the massive cloud of dust from the Sahara Desert that is crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

After work, we had an NYPD Pizza party

It had really been a while since the last time we had an NYPD Pizza party

Ohmigosh. It was so delicious. We love NYPD Pizza parties.

Good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty and pretty tasty Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•β€οΈ
