A Wednesday pizza party?

When we let the dogs out in the backyard this morning, it looked like it was going to be another grey and overcast day of working from home…

When we went out on our morning walk, we saw just how grey and overcast it was…

Good morning from Northside…

Someone lost their shoes. I’ll never understand how someone loses their shoes

We used to see it quite a few abandoned shoes when we lived downtown. Somehow it made a little more sense to me downtown. I don’t know why.

The little shrub in our front yard is starting to blossom…

Just as I was settling in to get down to work, it started pouring…

Slowly throughout the day, the sun started to come out. Later, we had to pick up a refill of Oscar’s allergy pills from the vet. And then we continued on to Finneytown to pick up some carry-out Domino’s pizza for dinner…

We usually have our pizza parties on Thursday. But we were in the neighborhood. So why not have a Wednesday Domino’s pizza party?

Genifer ordered a crispy thin crust with pepperoni and banana peppers. I got a thick pan crust double sausage and we shared some cheesy bread…

Dominos pizza is delicious. It’s so good. When we lived downtown, we used to order Dominos all the time but we don’t get it as much now because it’s just not as convenient as it was and they don’t deliver to Northside. And that’s a bit of a bummer. But what are you going to do?

Good evening from Northside…

It turned out to be a really pretty evening. And it wasn’t a bad Wednesday either. But pizza parties help make any day pretty darn good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

The T must stand for Tuesday.

It’s Tuesday. Good morning from Northside…

Before work this morning, we ran over to Lowes so Genifer could get more paint for our living room. But they were out of the paint base to mix the color we needed. And that’s kind of a bummer. She was so looking forward to trying to finish the living room today. We’ll check back or try another Lowes later in the week. While we were out, we did get Mad Llama coffees. I’m in love with their Caramel Java Whips. It’s soft-serve ice cream with caramel sauce and coffee. And it is out of this world…

I also tried one of their sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sammiches this morning…

It was a terrific breakfast sammich. I will definitely be getting many more of these in the future. Today was very long. There was just too much stuff to try to get done in one day. It’s already been one of those weeks. And it’s only Tuesday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs again for dinner tonight. The T in BLTs must stand for Tuesday. Holy geez, I love BLTs with turkey bacon…

And Genifer made seasoned oven curly fries…

I put some turkey on my turkey bacon BLT to make it a turkey bacon club again…

I wonder how many days I could eat BLTs in a row before I get tired of them. I’d bet you it would be a lot. Hopefully, things start to calm down this week. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Ugh, Mondays.

It’s another Monday. It looks like this is going to be another super busy week at work.

Good morning from Northside…

We saw this little snail shell on the sidewalk. It was right in the middle of the sidewalk…

When I picked it up to move it, I discover it was empty. I carried it home. And placed it on our little decorative rock next to our shrubbery in our rock garden.

We were both busy at work today. I don’t think this week is going to be a lot of fun.

For dinner tonight, we had the tortilla crusted BBQ chicken with cheesy potatoes and corn Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kit again

It was another really delicious dinner. And it was every bit as good the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

Good evening from Northside…

Oscar really likes hanging out under the sofa in our master bedroom…

But he doesn’t go all the way under the sofa. In fact, most of him usually isn’t under the sofa at all…

He’s pretty silly. But you should really hide from Monday before it starts not after you’ve made it through the whole day.

Happy Monday for Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Breakfast burrito & a lot of painting.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Mad Llama for some weekend morning coffee…

This morning I tried the Mad Llama bacon breakfast burrito…

And there it is…

It was really good stuff. I like breakfast burritos. Next time we go to Mad Llama, I think I’m going to try one of their breakfast sammiches.

We ran out so I could drop off a return at the UPS Store. Guess what. Come to find out the UPS Store is closed on Sundays. Who knew? At least it gave us an excuse to get some Mad Llama Coffee. When we got home, Genifer started painting our living room. Here’s what it looked like primed and before she started…

And when we came downstairs to check on her, she had made a lot of progress…

It’s looking so good. She’s doing a great job. But she thinks we’re going to need to get more paint to do a second coat.

We ate all the grilling leftovers from yesterday for a late lunch today. Stuff from the grill is so good, Even when it’s warmed up the next day.

Later, we took the dogs on a walk…

And good evening from Northside…

When we got to the top of the steps, it looked really threatening off in the distance…

It got really winding in our backyard when we got home. But then it blew over and the big fluffy white clouds were back…

We had a pretty low-key Sunday but Genifer has our living room starting to look pretty amazing! I can’t wait to see it without all the painter tape. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

A pretty good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside on this Saturday…

This morning we ran over to Lowe’s again to get more paint. After her success with painting our little half-bathroom, Genifer wanted to try painting our living room this weekend. While we were at Lowe’s, we also looked at some Pergo flooring for our third-floor bedroom. We really liked the color variations on this sample…

Pulling up the carpet on our third-floor and replacing it with wood might be our next, next project. After Lowe’s, we ran over to Kroger to get some groceries. They just had bee and sunflower balloons again today…

Have you ever tried Jack fruit? It looks like you’d get a lot of it for just $1.99…

I wonder if it’s any good? You know what IS good? These Ruffles chips…

Ohmigosh. They’re my new favorite! And this is the second time now that I’ve found them at Kroger! I was worried I would never find them again.

After we were done at Kroger, we stopped at Mad Llama for coffee…

When got home, Genifer started taping off the living room with painters tape…

And then she started priming,,,

And she did another really outstanding job with the primer…

And tomorrow she wants to paint the living room. She has a navy called Salty Dog that we think will look really nice in our living room. My job was to keep the dogs away from the paint while she was priming and tomorrow while she will be painting. And while she was priming, I got to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Manchester City and my Arsenal on ESPN+.

I don’t know why they relegated this match to ESPN+. They had a UFC behind-the-scenes show on ESPN and old X-Games highlights on ESPN2. It didn’t make much sense to me. But Arsenal defeated FA Cup holders Manchester City 2-0 to move onto the final at Wembley. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored both goals for the Gunners, finishing off an unbelievable 18-pass team move and then a swift counter-attack goal to finish off Manchester City. Come on you, Gunners!

Arsenal keeper Emi Martinez came up huge again for the Gunners especially with this save on City’s Riyad Mahrez. Watching the Mikel Arteta Bench Cam was also pretty entertaining. Arsenal’s head coach gets pretty animated on the sidelines. It’s been a week for The Arsenal. The Gunners beat newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool 2-1 on Wednesday and now FA Cup holders City 2-0 just three days later. Pretty darn unbelievable!

Arsenal will face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on August 1st…

Chelsea beat Manchester United 3-1 in the other semi-final.

When the match was over and Genifer was done priming, we went out in the backyard with the dogs…

And while we were in the backyard, we fired up the grill…

First, we grilled some salmon burgers and chicken kabobs…

And then we grilled a couple of burgers and some jalapeno cheddar dogs…

The burgers were really good…

And the dogs were outstanding…

We’ve been buying this sweet Hawaiian bread at the grocery. Not King’s Hawaiian, but the Kroger equivalent. And I’ve been putting my hot dogs on that instead of buying hot dog buns too. It seemed like there were always hot dog buns leftover. The dogs taste awesome on the Hawaiian bread and now we don’t have a lot of extra hot dog buns going to waste. I think that’s what they call, a win-win.

This is Bear, the newest member of our family…

I like him. He’s fitting right into our family like he was meant to be here.

Good evening from Northside…

When we got home, we had some of this strawberry cake we got at the grocery…

It was really good. I’ve been on a strawberry kick lately. I can’t wait to see how our living room looks in its new Salty Dog blue…

When we got upstairs, we watched Louisville City lose 1-0 to St. Louis. And we watched more of the MLS is Back tournament. It was a pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Cheers! It’s finally Friday.

Good morning from Northside…

This has felt like a really long week. But made it to Friday. And to celebrate this morning, we walked to Sidewinder to get coffee…

Cheers to Friday!

Our drinks were so good.

Genifer went with her sister to get pedicures. I cranked all day to get my work done.

And then we walked the dogs…

Good evening from Northside…

I stayed up to watch my Minnesota United play the 10:30pm late match to a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake. I’m probably going to be tired tomorrow. It’s a good thing we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and there really isn’t much of anything to do. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

A Thursday pizza party.

Good morning from Northside…

It was grey and overcast start to our Thursday.

While we were working this morning, we watched FC Cincinnati defeat a 9-man Atlanta United 1-0. FC|C was kind of gifted the win with two Atlanta players sent off, one in just the 26th minute for a second yellow and the second a straight red in stoppage time.

We made it through Thursday. And a reward, we had an NYPD Pizza party

I wonder what happened to NYPD’s awning. I placed our order online at 5:45pm. And at 6:05pm, I was heading back to the Audi with our pizza…

And at 6:10pm, I’m back at home and we were starting our NYPD Pizza party…

Tonight, we had a large pepperoni and sausage with banana peppers…

This pepperoni had five sausages on it…

It was the best bite of pizza I had tonight. We also ordered some cheese curds…

NYPD’s boneless wings are so good but they recently decreased the quantities of their wings but the kept the prices the same and they’re just not a good value any more.

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

And that was actually our Thursday. I feel like can see the light at the end of the tunnel for my work projects this week. One more day to go. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Today was Thursday.

Today was Thursday Wednesday. Good morning from Northside…

Genifer put the shelves back up in our bathroom. She did an incredible job painting…

It looks so good. I love this shade of blue, especially with the blue floor tiles…

Speaking of good, we had baked sausages with sweet potatoes and apples for dinner…

It’s one of my favorite dinners. And good evening from Northside…

There was this weird little leaf dangling from a strand of spider web in our backyard…

Tonight, we watched more of the MLS is Back tournament. It’s been a lot of fun so far. There have been a lot of really entertaining matches. And it’s been great to have live sports every night again.

And that was our Thursday Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŸฆ๐Ÿƒโค๏ธ

There were some really pretty clouds.

Good morning from Northside. There were some really pretty clouds this morning…

Mack and Bear crashed out all day in the office…

Oscar usually hangs out in our front bedroom during the day. I made Taco Tuesday tacos for lunch today…

They were delicious. I love tacos. Especially on Tuesdays for Taco Tuesday. And Genifer made chicken ramen stir-fry for dinner…

It was delicious as well. She always finds the best recipes. It was a pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We made it through another Tuesday. At least there were some pretty clouds today.
๐Ÿ˜€โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Some BBQ chicken and a new bear.

Good Monday morning from Northside…

We rescued a dog over the weekend. We got him from people we know that didn’t want him anymore. They would leave him outside all day, if he was inside he was trapped in his crate. They wouldn’t give any love or attention and overfeed him. His name is Bear. And he’s the newest member of our family…

He slept right next to me in the office all day today. We’ve already become really good friends. I hope him and Mack will become good friends too…

I haven’t had a chance to take many photos of him yet. And the ones I’ve taken haven’t been good. Hopefully, I’ll get some good photos of him in the evening this week or next weekend. I don’t understand how you could be mean to him. He’s just a big sweetheart and is really well-behaved and mild-mannered.

After working for a bit, I noticed Mack wasn’t in the office with us. I went to look for him around the house and found him just chillin’ up in our bedroom…

I came back to check on him a little bit later and he was sleeping on our bed…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express mealsย for dinner tonight. I forgot to take a photo of the label like I usually do. But this one was tortilla crusted BBQ chicken with cheesy potatoes and corn or something like that…

Whatever it was called, it sure was good…

It was another really delicious dinner. We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

UPDATE: We found the meal at Kroger again…

I wasn’t far off on the name at all.

Good evening from Northside…

It was another good Monday. This week is going to be a busy one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
