I’m really bad at painting.

The trees colors are starting to change up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get Friday morning coffee…

And good evening from Northside…

We had delicious ramen noodles for dinner tonight…

We’ve been working on staining our new backyard fence

It turns out I’m not very good at painting at all…

Thank goodness it’s Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸœβ€οΈ

T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒˆπŸΎβ€οΈ

Constructing Northside, finally.

The day got off to an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

They started working in front of our house again this morning…

There was a lot going on for quick second on our street…

And that’s the progress they made today…

Good evening from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were all tuckered out…

It’s not everyday construction equipment rips up your street, let alone your front yard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸΎβ€οΈ

Oktoberfest In Za House.

Good morning from Northside…

Mack usually hangs out with me in our office while I’m working but today he wandered off. And I found sleeping in my spot on our bed…

When were out on our walk this evening, we saw this yard sign…

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is traditionally the nation’s largest Oktoberfest and the second largest in the world to the original Oktoberfest in Munich. And apparently even with COVID-19 this year, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is still taking place around town at favorite Cincinnati eateries and pubs and In Za House at home…

Good evening from Northside….

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati In Za Haus will enable Oktoberfest lovers to get their German on at home by ordering do-it-yourself Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Zelebration Packs. This year’s mostly virtual Oktoberfest starts today and runs through next Saturday, September 27th. PROST!

And good night from our backyard…

Thank goodness, it’s Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯¨β€οΈ

It was a good Thursday.

Good morning from Northside…

I had creamy chicken noodle sup for lunch today…

Mack and I played in the backyard for a bit…

And we had grilled cheeses for dinner…

And thank you notes are the best…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Home sweet home.

It’s nice to visit new places but it’s also really nice to be home…

And good evening from Northside…

It’s nice to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΎβ€οΈ

A darn good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery store to get some groceries for the week…

How adorable were these buttons?

If they would have been magnets, they would be home with us right now. And this llama pillow was pretty cute…

There were some good balloons today too. I got five on it with some stars…

There were a lot of Back-to-School balloons because it’s about that time….

And without a hint of irony, the Back-to-School balloons were right next to the Get Well Soon balloons…

There should have been a promotion, Buy any Back-to-School balloon, get one, Get Well Soon balloon for free.” Ugh. It’s hard to believe that the pandemic has been raging for six months now, and nothing’s getting any better. And speaking of the pandemic when we were done at the grocery, we ran into Target…

While we were at Target, I got an eye exam…

If you remember a while back, I cracked my glasses right in two. I’ve been going without glasses for a minute. And today, I ended up getting two new pairs. One near-sighted pair with blue light filter for working on my computer and one far-sighted pair for driving and watching movies. Both of them compensate for my pretty considerable astigmatism. I’m so excited for my new glasses. They’ll be ready in a couple of weeks. The best part is that between my insurance and health savings account that both pairs of glasses cost me a grand total of $10. How cool is that? And I also got this new little bluetooth speaker…

It has a really good, full sound. Also full was my belly after eating a BLT with turkey bacon and Canadian Bacon for lunch…

It looked like it was raining off in the distance…

And good evening from Northside…

This evening I trimmed the grass in our little front yard…

And our little front yard flowers are really flourishing…

And of course, we played some ball in our backyard…

Mack was waiting for us upstairs at the top of the steps…

When we got upstairs, we watched the Grizzlies lose the the 8/9 play-in game to the trailblazers in the NBA bubble. It was a really good game. I love the Griz but I think the Blazers will give the Lakers more problems. And it was be awesome if the Lakers got knocked out of the playoffs.
We also watched Louisville City beat Loudoun 2-0.

It was a pretty darn good Saturday. I can’t wait for my glasses. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

The last of the cupcakes.

Good morning from Northside…

I don’t remember what we had for dinner. But we finished the cupcakes

It’s always a little sad when you eat your last cupcake.

Good evening from Northside…

And we played ball in the backyard…

We watched the Grizzlies beat the Bucks by 13 to officially clinched a spot in the Western Conference play-in game against the Portland Trailblazers. It was probably the Grizzlies best win of the bubble. I like the Grizzlies. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. But then again, I just really like bears. So I might be biased. And we watched the Phoenix Suns finish a perfect 8-0 in the NBA bubble as they defeated our Mavericks, 128-102. I’ve been really getting into the NBA bubble games. The officiating has been horrible as ever. But it’s been fun to watch the basketball. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ€β€οΈ

A wonderful start for Tuesday.

The sunrise this morning was a really pretty one…

I bet Mack was wondering what the heck I kept looking at…

And here’s what it looked like when I shared it on Instagram

It was pretty morning in our backyard too…

And good morning from Northside…

When Genifer went to lunch with her coworkers at Taste of Belgium, she also brought home a bag of blueberry Belgian waffles, and those waffles are delicious…

It was pretty this afternoon in our backyard as well…

While I was working this afternoon, Mack wandered into our office and set one of his squeaky toys on my leg and left…

And Bear was crashed out in Mack’s crate in our office all afternoon…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Italian Sausage Penne with sun-dried tomato cream and sweet corn…

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

After dinner, we shared a giant chocolate chip cookie that Genifer brought home with her from Currito…

Oscar likes laying under our dining room table while he waits patiently for us to finish eating dinner so he can go on his walk…

And good evening from Northside…

And then we wrapped up our Tuesday back in our backyard again to play more ball…

We had a pretty darn good Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

An early autumn Wednesday?

So far the weather has been almost autumn-like all week. It was only supposed to reach a high of 79ΒΊ today. This morning was chilly enough to wear a hoodie while we were taking the dogs on their morning walk. And it felt like we should be getting ready for college football this weekend. (Like there’s going to be college football this year.)

Still, it was a very pretty morning…

And good morning from Northside…

I realized that I never posted any photos of our freshly painted living room…

The living room turned out so nice. Genifer did such an amazing job with the painting! We’re looking to get a new sofa with a new, bigger TV and TV stand for our living room so we can hang out in our living room more.

And good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs for dinner again. We love BLTs. I had a BLT wrap. It was terrific…

Genifer went out to lunch at Taste of Belgium with coworkers today. And she brought home a oatmeal raisin cookie and brownie for us to share for dessert…

The icing on the cookie was so good…

And the brownie was more like fudge than brownie. It was very rich…

We played ball in our backyard for a half hour tonight…

All the dogs were so tuckered out afterwards. Mack always crashes out in the weirdest, most uncomfortable looking positions…

And when we got upstairs, Oscar made his way under the sofa. Almost…

It was another pretty good Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ
