A cold & snowy Saturday.

It was a could and snowy morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to the grocery this morning. It counts as our Saturday activity…

Both the panda and train were on the shelf today…

And the football balloons still dominated the balloons…

And then we got coffees from Mad Llama

JAVA WHIPS!

After that we were pretty lazy…

We still had some flurries this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

You can see the snowflakes on Mack’s head…

We had a Kroger flatbread pizza for lunch with Caesar salad. It was really good. Somehow, I didn’t take a photo of it. I don’t remember what we had for dinner.

But we had tiramisu for dessert…

Michigan got thumped by Minnesota. And we watched Outside the Wire on Netflix. It was pretty good. We had another good pandemic Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A 43-6 scoring run?!

It was another overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

But it turned out to be a pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This was Italian Romano Pork Meatloaf with Parmesan broccoli and red peppersโ€ฆ

And add some extra dust cheese…

It was another really delicious meal. All the meatloaf dinners we’ve tried have been outstanding. This was yet another meal that would have gone really well with garlic bread. But I’ve been told that not every meal needs to have garlic bread with it. Still, we like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

We watched Michigan run riot on Wisconsin. At one point in the second half, Michigan was up by 40 points courtesy of a stretch when the Wolverines outscored the Badgers 43-6

And they’re only going to get better next season…

And five years ago, Michigan beat then #3 Maryland

โ€œWho’s got it better than us?โ€ Hail! GO BLUE! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธใ€ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Another great Sunday.

The sky was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had our normal weekend outing to the grocery…

The Valentine’s Day stuff is out in force…

Both the panda and the train were in the international aisle…

These balloons were very cheerful. I liked the little frog…

And Ice Bear was still trapped inside in the claw grab machine…

We stopped for Biggby coffee

It was time to say goodbye to our Christmas tree again…

We made BLTs with seasoned curly fries for lunch…

Xavier beat Providence with a buzz-beater and Wichita State handled Cincinnati.

The sky was pretty this evening as well..

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we finished Manhunt: Unabomber. It was pretty good. Very interesting.

And twelve years ago today, I got started on Twitter…

I don’t really post a lot on Twitter, or really on any social media anymore. But I sure do scroll through my Twitter feed all the dang time. I wonder how much I’ll keep looking at Twitter after January 20th. This is probably going to help a bunch…

It sounds like it’s already making Twitter a better place. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

A nice start to the new year.

Welcome to the new year! Good morning from Northside…

Our new year got off to a very lazy start. We were so lazy. Today, we ended up watching the entire season of Manhunt: Deadly Games. We watched all ten episodes back to back to back. It was a really good show. We like the detective shows. We did take a little break about halfway through to get NYPD hoagies for lunch…

We ordered a family fry but they gave us cheese fries. And they gave us a regular fry instead of my hoagie. We called them and they sorted it out. NYPD hoagies are so good. We were so stuffed afterward. We watched our UC Bearcats lose a heartbreaker to Georgia in the Peach Bowl. They represented themselves very well on the big stage. All the while Mack hung out on his dog bed in our studio office…

And then we took the dogs around the block. The sky was very pretty tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a very pretty evening. We had a great lazy day just watching our show.

Two out of three isn’t bad.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to Target to do some shopping…

How cute are these bears? I love a bin of adorable bears…

And there was this adorable yeti stocking

Greetings from Antarctica…

I designed the eCommerce basic images for all the holiday Swiss Miss hot cocoa gift sets

Speaking of Swiss Miss, how long has there been Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa with Lucky Charms Marshmallows? It’s the first time I’ve ever seen this sorcery…

And speaking of cocoa, I love hot chocolate. It’s become my go-to drink whenever we go out to get coffee.

When we got home, it was time for day thirteen of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We had snacks for lunch today…

We watched Arsenal lose 1-0 to Burnley…

It was the first time since December 1959 that the Gunners have lost four consecutive matches at home. They are really not doing well this season. At the same time as the Arsenal match, Michigan was playing their Big Ten opener against Penn State and our Cowboys were playing in Cincinnati against the Bengals…

Both Michigan and Dallas won their games. I guess, two out of three isn’t so bad.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, I had one of my favorite snacks, Ritz crackers and peanut butter…

We finished season one of Black Spot. It’s a very odd show. Very good, very interesting, but very odd. We’ll start on season two tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

A Wednesday NYPD Pizza party!

There were more altocumulcus clouds hovering over Northside this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was time for day nine of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The sun actually came out today…

And then we had the ultra rare Wednesday NYPD Pizza party

We ordered a large Station House supremiumโ„ข pizza…

And Nightsticks with extra cheese…

NYPD Pizza parties are so good. Especially on Wednesdays. They never happen on Wednesdays. And after we were done eating all our pizza, we headed upstairs…

We watched Michigan thump Toledo and Xavier thump Oklahoma. Both teams won by exactly 20 points. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Headlines are hard.

I feel like coming up with the headlines for these blog posts is the hardest part. Especially when we do the same thing pretty much everyday and every day is pretty much the same.

We were out on our morning walk and the sun just started rising above the trees…

Good morning from Northside…

And the moon was still out too…

And it was time for day two of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

While I was working this afternoon, I listened to the Chelsea-Sevilla Champions League match. And one of my favorite ex-Arsenal players, Olivier Giroud scored all four of Chelsea’s goals.

And fast forward through the rest of the work day to this evening. For dinner tonight, we hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This meal was Hot Honey Pork Chops with shaved Brussels sprouts, corn, and poblano preppersโ€ฆ

And it was another delicious dinner. The hot honey butter on the chops was amazing. The vegetables were really tasty too. The poblano pepper added just a little bit of heat to the veggies. It was another really great meal. We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

And good evening from Northside…

Later, we flipped back and forth between Michigan-Ball State and Xavier-Tennessee Tech basketball games. And both teams won. It was another pretty good Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฒโค๏ธ

The first snow.

It was another Monday. And Mondays usually mean that it’s going to be another grey and rainy morning in Northside…

And it was cold outside too.

You can’t really tell from these photos but this morning it was raining hard enough that the dogs didn’t even want to go outside on their walk. We had to pretty much drag them out of the house and down to the end of the street so they would potty.

Mondays are tough. I feel like they are the busiest days of the week. When I look back at my photos to do a blog post for almost any Monday, there are never any photos from during the day. There are photos from our morning dog walk and then it jumps straight to photos from the evening dog walk.

And today was no different. This afternoon it started snowing. Our very first snow of the season. The snow was starting to accumulate on top of the cars on our street…

It started really snowing on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

There was more snow on the Jetta when we got back from going around the block…

But the snow wasn’t starting to accumulate on the grass yet…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made turkey meatloaf…

She also made instant mashed potatoes and I finished the last of the Thanksgiving mac&cheese…

And it was delicious. We ate the entire meatloaf. It’s kind of a bummer because I was looking forward to a meatloaf sammich for lunch tomorrow.

When we got upstairs, I was trying to work on our blog but Flickr was having a case of the Mondays as well…

8 Tonight, we watched Xavier squeak out a win against Eastern Kentucky. Then we fell asleep. We always end up falling asleep pretty early on Mondays. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

A pretty low-key Sunday.

It was really chilly and frosty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had a big breakfast this morning…

Eggo waffles with scrambled eggs and sausages! And it was terrific. We never have big breakfasts.

Hello, Oscar. He looks so handsome with his new haircut…

And we had Thanksgiving part three for a late lunch after Arsenal lost this afternoon…

And then it was just a lot of hanging out on our new sofa until we took the dogs on their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

It was pretty sunny all day. But it started getting more and more overcast the closer we got to Monday…

Tonight, we watched both The Princess Switch and The Princess Switch: Switched Again on Netflix. The first one was pretty cute. The second one was still cute but a bit of a stretch. While we were watching our Netflix movies on the TV, I was also keeping tabs on Michigan as they survived overtime against Oakland. The same Oakland that Xavier destroyed by 52 on Wednesday.

We had a pretty low-key Sunday. But it was a really good one. Low-key Sundays are the best Sundays. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿง‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆƒโ˜๏ธโค๏ธ

Two years ago.

Two years ago today, Michigan played against Villanova in the college basketball National Championship game…

Michigan ended up losing 79-62 in the championship game but what an incredible tournament run it was! GO BLUE!
