Westside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We went out to The Westside to sign our tax documents to be sent off to the tax people…

We’re getting a little money back from federal and state and broke even with Cincinnati.

While we were over there, we stopped at the grocery for some dog food…

And then we stopped at Jersey Mike’s Subs to get lunch to take home with us…

I had only ever eaten at Jersey Mike’s one other time a long time ago. I don’t even remember what I ordered. This time I got the #56 Big Kahuna and it was really good.

Other than that, we were pretty lazy. We’ve been watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

There were a couple of good photos in my Timehop today. First was Oscar riding around in the back of our Jetta…

And there was this photo proving that once there was indeed grass in our backyard…

And this photo of Mack all crashed out…

Friday, March 5th.

Genifer picked up Oscar…

And she also picked up Tropical Smoothie Cafe for our lunch…

We had pesto tortellini for dinner tonight…

We’ve been watching Good Girl on Netflix. It’s been… entertaining. We’re about halfway through season three.

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Hooray for Saturday!

Hooray. It’s Saturday! We were so lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

And we ate fruit from our Edible Arrangement too. Both were so good…

Speaking of so good, we watched Leicester City drop three goals in seven minutes on Liverpool. And it was awesome.

Later, we ordered lunch from Dragon City through DoorDash

Genifer ordered Pad Thai…

And she got some dumplings too…

I ordered Chicken Egg Foo Young…

I also ordered these chicken teriyaki skewers…

I accidentally took this photo of our ceiling fan…

Good evening from Northside…

It looked exactly like it did this morning…

This evening we watched Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel on Netflix. That show was pretty crazy. But we weren’t crazy. We were just pretty lazy today.

We made it to Friday!

The sunrise was pretty this morning…

But then the grey skies started to win again…

There was a pretty deeper blue-grey in the sky this morning just above the horizon…

And by the time we were out on our morning walk, the sun was long gone…

Good morning from Northside…

The very pretty blue-grey in the sky was more pronounced up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Today was a great day to celebrate. It was Friday. We made it through another week. And this morning, our Edible Arrangement was delivered for Valentine’s Day…

It’s pretty amazing how expensive shipping gets the closer you get to Valentine’s Day especially when it falls on a weekend…

But if it was delivered today, it was free. So here we are…

And our arrangement came with a box of a dozen little cookies…

It looks delicious. We can’t wait to dig into the fruits. And the cookies.

We had grilled cheeses with turkey for lunch. In some circles, they call that a Super Bird. But whatever you call them, grilled cheeses are pretty darn good…

I really like dipping my grilled cheeses in barbeque sauce…

And for dinner, we had an NYPD Pizza party…

NYPD Pizza is sooo good…

Snow bear? Snow mouse…?

Snow hamster?

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished watching Wanted on Netflix. We had a really good Friday. And especially since it’s the start of a three-day holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

It’s cold outside.

It was really cold this morning…

Good morning from Noerhside…

When we came back from our walk, I noticed my Bombas were on the wrong feet..

The breakfast of champions: Strawberry Toaster Strudels and hot chocolate…

And SURPRISE! It was still snowy this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had Sloppy Joseph’s for dinner tonight…

We played in the backyard for a bit…

And then it was back to work while we watched more of Wanted on Netflix.

Here we go again.

It was an overcast start to another work week…

The sun started to make a brief appearance this morning before getting enveloped by the clouds…

The sky looked really pretty. Good morning from Northside…

This evening it was just overcast and grey…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. We had the Asian Sesame Pulled Pork with broccoli and jasmine rice againโ€ฆ

It was so good again. The Asian glaze on the pulled pork was just amazing. At the grocery, we got a delicious little carrot cake to share for desserts this week…

It was the start of what’s going to be a crazy busy work week for me. I have two projects that both have deadlines on Friday morning. But I’ll get it all get sorted. Somehow.

While I was working on my stuff, we started watching Wanted on Netflix. It‘s wildly improbable and a bit ridiculous but very entertaining. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Free birthday wings!

Happy Saturday! Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch this afternoon…

I had a free snack-sized wings for my birthday through their app. We picked up our BDubs out in West Chester and took it over to have lunch with Geri…

BDubs is such good stuff! We don’t have it often enough. And it was great to get to hang out with Geri for the afternoon.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we ate our BDubs chocolate fudge cake…

Ohmigosh. That cake was really good. It was sooo fudgy. I think I’m going to be good on chocolate cake for a while. We watched The Dig on Netflix tonight. I thought the movie was so good. Genifer thought it was just okay. But we could both agree that we had a pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅฎ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

A Wednesday pizza party?!

Good morning from Northside…

And tonight, we had the super rare Wednesday NYPD Pizza party

Ohmigosh. NYPD Pizza is so good. Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

And then it time to play with Oscar and his hedgehog…

Tonight, we started watching Fate: The Winx Saga. It’s pretty okay. But our day was pretty great. Thanks to our Wednesday NYPD Pizza party. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Lots of geese.

We work up this morning to more snow…

When we up atop the hill at the end of our street, a pretty big group of geese in their flying V formation flew by in front of us…

And then it was followed by two more Vs, all heading in the same direction…

Interestingly… A group of geese on land is called a gaggle. When they’re in flight, it becomes a skein, team or wedge of geese.

Also, scientists have determined that the V-shaped formation that geese use when migrating serves two important purposes: First, it conserves their energy. Each bird flies slightly above the bird in front of him, resulting in a reduction of wind resistance. The birds take turns being in the front, falling back when they get tired. This lets the geese fly for a long time before they have to stop for rest. The second benefit to the V formation is that it’s easy to keep track of every bird in the group, and may assist with the communication and coordination within the group. Ahhh.. the internet.

Anyway, it was a lot of geese. Good morning from Northside…

Hello moon…

And by this evening, most of our snow had melted again…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Asian Sesame Pulled Pork with broccoli and jasmine riceโ€ฆ

Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable. The pulled pork had an amazing Asian glaze and the rice was really good too.

And Genifer made almond flour cupcakes with strawberry frosting…

Cupcakes are always terrific. Good evening from our backyard…

Tonight, we watched In Darkness on Netflix. It was pretty good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ
