There’s more than one water bowl.

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar and Mack always drink out of the same water bowl at the same time…

There’s another water bowl right next to Mack.

The cicadas are starting to be everywhere outside…

I forgot to take my little fisheye lens with us on our walk again this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had sausage with sweet potato and apple bake for dinner tonight…

And then it was upstairs for the evening…

And we watched the Grizzlies lose game two of their first round playoff series against the Utah Jazz. Bummer. But other than that, it was a pretty good Wednesday.

Friday evening in our backyard.

Good morning from Northside…

We’ve been going to Blue Jay for breakfast on Friday…

Mmmm. Northsider omelette…

We stopped for coffee on our way home…

We ordered this new rug for our second floor hallway…

Oscar slept on the rug while I finished up work…

And just like that, it was the weekend…

Good evening from Northside…

We sat on our back patio and had some drinks…

We watched the final NBA play-in game, and the Grizzlies beat the Warriors 117-112 in overtime…

Congrats Memphis! In the first round of the playoffs, the Grizz get to play the team with the best regular season record and number one overall seed in the playoffs, Utah Jazz.

Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΊπŸΎβ€οΈ

It was just a Tuesday.

It was another rainy and grey morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was sunny again this afternoon…

Good evening from Northside…

We ate leftover spaghetti for dinner and watched the NBA Eastern Conference play-in games this evening.

It was just a Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

That’s my focus.

The NBA playoffs start tonight with the new play-in format that I think makes the playoffs even more exciting.

But this was just an excuse to embed the greatest NBA playoff hype spot of all time…

You gotta stay focused. My Memphis Grizzlies play in the Western Conference 9/10 game on Wednesday at 7:30pm on ESPN…

Fantasy basketball 2021.

share.png

I played NBA fantasy basketball again this year.Β And just like last years COVID shortened season, I played eight teams again. Seven of my eight teams made the playoffs. Six of those seven made it to the championship round. And four of those six won their leagues. Four championships from eight teams is pretty good, right?

Fantasy basketball makes the basketball season so much fun, and this was another great season. πŸ˜€πŸ€πŸ†β€οΈ

A world without sports.

One year ago during the the Mavs-Nuggets game on ESPN, the NBA decided to suspend their season while the Mavs game was still going…

And the next day, it was all kind of dominoes…

And just like that, we were plunged into a world without sports.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I thought Ice Bear had been pulled out of the claw machine…

But he was just moved from the front corner to the back corner. poor guy…

They were still out of pandas and trains…

But there were still plenty of Valentine’s Day balloons…

Lotsa balloons…

Cincinnati was expecting a big winter storm starting later in the afternoon. And that made the check-out lines really long…

And we stopped for coffees…

Arsenal smacked around Leeds United, 4-2. And Michigan was finally back from their three week COVID pause and they had to play away to Wisconsin…

And BOOM! They didn’t miss a beat…

After the Michigan game, we went over to Taft’s for pizza…

We tried Taft’s newest beer, Hazy Cabana Juice

It was really good. We got some loaded tots…

Very blurry tots. And we got a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza…

Taft’s had a Valentine’s Day special with a heart-shaped pizza and cannoli. We didn’t get the special deal but they had extra cannoli and gave us a couple…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out and had a few drinks and watched Mavs basketball…

It probably wasn’t the world’s most romantic Valentine’s Day but it was a really great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ•πŸ€β€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₯‘❀️

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

β€œWe may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

β€œAn individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

β€œLove is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

β€œOnly in the darkness can you see the stars.”

β€œEverybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

We both had the day off work today for the holiday. It was a cold and snowy day…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made cheesy buffalo chicken pasta with garlic bread for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

I realized when we got to the stairs at the top of the hill at the end of our street that I had forgotten my little fisheye Moment lens

Today, we watched Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-0. And we watched the MLK Day NBA games especially the Grizzlies win over the Suns. I like the Griz. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. It was a very nice day off. And another very low-key, relaxing day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ”₯πŸ”βš½οΈπŸ€β€οΈ

It’s been nice relaxing.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made lasagna for a late lunch today…

Lasagna is so dang good. And we haven’t had it in a quick minute. And I love anything that can be eaten with garlic bread.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched some football. And we watched the Mavs just destroy the Clippers

We were having a hard time getting into Hinderland so tonight we tried Bordertown. We couldn’t really get into that one either. Maybe we’ll have better luck trying to find a new series to watch tomorrow.

But it sure has been nice just relaxing at home. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ
