A low-key Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We’re always up and moving pretty early. We don’t really sleep our days away, even on the weekends.. We ran over to the grocery early this morning. We like to get in and out before it gets too busy…

Kroger had both the panda AND train today in the international aisle…

Afterward, we stopped for our Mad Llama coffee

And later, we had an NYPD Pizza party with french fries…

Good night from Northside…

We had a very low-key, relaxing Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚β˜•οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

International Space Station Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery. They always have different balloons

I like looking at the balloons. And then we got our Mad Llama coffee

And we got our delicious Mad Llama bagel turkey sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sammich on an Asiago cheese bagel…

Tomorrow, they’re going to start working on the water mains on our street again. I went out to move the Jetta up to the end of the street and it wouldn’t start. Again. I just had a new battery put in it the last time they worked on our street. I think it’s probably the alternator but we’ll see. This morning, AAA came out to take it to one of their repair centers…

And there it goes. I hope it isn’t too expensive.

Oscar was just hanging out…

It’s Sunday. We must be going to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

We got to watch the crazy end of the Cowboys game

Taft’s is such great stuff. And today, they had fried mushrooms….

The sky was so pretty this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

We asked the two people standing on the hill what they were watching for, and they said the International Space Station was just about to fly over

And suddenly, there it was…

It was just a little pinhole of light. It almost just looked a star but it was really moving quickly across the sky…

And there it went…

How neat was that? Just being in the right place at the right time.

It was a really cool way to end a great weekend…

Next week is probably going to be another crazy one. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

We have a side yard now!

This morning we woke up early to get over to Lowe’s…

We wanted to get a big drum of stain for our brand new fence. It’s so exciting. After we chose our stain, we headed over to Mad Llama for our Saturday morning coffee…

I bet about half of our runs to Lowe’s and the grocery have just thinly veiled excuses to run across town to get Mad Llama coffee because it is so good…

When we our new fence was installed, we had them move our gate up to the street side of our side door. It gave us a little side yard space that is actually usable now. This afternoon we worked on cleaning up on newly formed little side yard space…

When they ripped up our street to replace the water main, they left a pile of the bricks on the side of our street. It turns those bricks were the original cobblestone bricks from back in the day when Beech Hill was a brick cobblestone street. We grabbed as many of those bricks as we could and stacked them by our air conditioner on the side of our house. We weren’t sure what we were going to be using them for until today. We used them to line the path in our little side yard…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

With our new fence…

And our new little side yard…

Hello there, Pumpkin.

HAPPY LABOR DAY! We’ve had a really great long weekend so far…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

And it’s that time of year again. pumpkin spice everything…

And they didn’t have the bear OR the train in the international aisle…

And we had to get our coffee from Mad Llama

We didn’t get pumpkin spice anything. Genifer got a caramel latte and I got my beloved caramel java whip. Mad Llama’s coffees are so good.

Later, we started clearing all the ivy from our fence…

Our backyard fence is finally getting replaced this week! We’re so excited.

And once we cleared as much of the ivy as we could, it was time to reward ourselves with an NYPD Hoagie party

NYPD Hoagies are so delicious. And the cheese fries were really good too!

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty nice Monday to wrap up the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

And this morning, we ran to get Mad Llama coffee, which isn’t exactly Northside but we just love their coffee and turkey sausage egg and cheese bagel sammich…

And our Saturday was off to a pretty darn good start. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Sunday coffee & pizza party!

After walking the dogs, we hoped in the car to go get coffee. It was foggy over on this side town…

I accidentally ordered Genifer a hot coffee from Mad Llama

Dang. Sorry about that, baby. When we got home, there were some really grey clouds over Northside…

Good afternoon from Northside…

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of our pizza and wings? Crazy, right? We had another white pizza with prosciutto and tomatoes and Cherrywood BBQ wings. It was delicious as always!

Later, we played in the backyard for a bit…

Trips to Mad Llama Coffee and Taft’s Brewpourium make Sundays great.

A really good Saturday.

It was a really pretty Saturday morning…

Hello moon…

Good morning from Northside…

Our replacement hose showed up and it works great with no leaks…

And then we went to Kroger for groceries…

Kroger had some adorable balloons today

And afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some Saturday morning coffee…

There was train crossing over the road on our way home…

We mowed the weeds in our backyard

Three weeks until our fence gets replaced and then we can start working on making our backyard look more respectable…

We got this delicious fruit at the grocery…

Good evening from Northside…

We played ball in our backyard for another half hour…

Those dogs play ball until they can’t play ball anymore…

Mack wandered off in the middle of the night. And I found him on our office WyzeCam all crashed out in the office…

And this photo of Oscar was in my Timehop

We had a really good Saturday.

Hooray for Fridays.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Mad Llama to get some coffee before we started work…

And then I wrapped up my projects for the week…

We had the rest of our pizza for dinner and then it was good evening from Northside…

And we played ball in the backyard for another half-hour. I think playing ball is Bear’s favorite part of his day. Oscar’s favorite part is probably going on walks. I think Mack just likes everything. He’s just a very happy dog.

I just like it when the workweek is over and we can enjoy the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

At least the BLTs were great.

We’re up and moving pretty early every morning. And today was no exception, we were up and walking the dogs before 8am. Good morning from Northside…

Apparently, I need to clean either my Moment fisheye lens or the lens on my mobile’s camera. I’ve been getting a slightly darker dot right in the middle of my frame. And that’s kind of annoying to notice well after the fact.

We ran over to Kroger to some groceries…

Kroger had more really cute balloons

So cute. We stopped at Mad Llama again to get coffee and a breakfast sammich…

I got this sausage egg and cheese sammich on a jalapeno cheddar bagel…

And boy, those jalapenos were spicy! You could tell the bagels were super fresh and made from scratch. It was a really good breakfast sammich. But next time, I would definitely get it on an Asiago bagel instead so it wasn’t so spicy.

We didn’t do anything all afternoon. We thought about going to Newport on the Levee to watch the second Reds game of the season. They were projecting the game on a big screen outdoors “safely social distancing in our own game box!”

But then we looked again at Newport on the Levee’s Instagram and it just looked like too many people for usΒ and it didn’t look like people were wearing masks in any of the photos. So we decided just to watch the Reds game at home because, you know… COVID.

So we just ate BLTs again and watched the Reds game…

And good evening from Northside…

And the Reds lost to the Tigers 6-4. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

A Friday with Reds baseball.

We got up extra early this morning to run a couple of errands before work. But first, we had to walk the dogs. It was a little hazy this morning. The hill off in the distance looked extra distant today…

Good morning from Northside…

Our little shrub in our front yard is so blossomy…

We ran to Lowe’s so Genifer could get another gallon of paint for the living room. And then we swung through Mad Llama for coffee

And we made it back home for my 9am meeting. It turned out to be a very pretty day…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we watched the entire Reds game, from the first pitch until the last…

The Reds looked formidable as they beat the Tigers 7-1. It was really good to watch the Reds again! And it’s so amazing to have MLB back in our lives. While we were watching the game, Oscar snuck in between the sofa and the ottoman…

It was such a pretty evening…

It was a really good Friday. It’s terrific to have baseball back! πŸ˜€βšΎοΈβ€οΈ
