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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ§‡πŸΎπŸ¦ƒβ˜οΈβ€οΈ

We did a lot today.

Oscar was getting his hair cut today, so we were up pretty early on a Saturday morning before his grooming appointment…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar’s appointment was set for 8am but we were running a bit early so we stopped at Biggby for coffees

And then it was back over to Petsmart in Oakley…

Oscar had gotten so fuzzy…

We kind of wanted to get him a haircut before we headed out to the coast but we just ran out of time. Sorry Oscar, today’s the day…

While we were sitting in the car, enjoying our Biggby and waiting for Petsmart to open, the sun started to rise above the horizon…

After we dropped off Oscar, we ran over to Lowe’s…

After we got some more Christmas lights, a new wreath and some odds and ends stuff, we headed over to Home goods in Rookwood…

We got the boys a bunch of new dog beds and some other stuff. And then we went next door to walk through T.J.Maxx…

While we were in T.J.Maxx, we got the call from Petsmart that Oscar was ready to be picked up…

And Oscar looked so handsome!

Western Michigan-Northern Illinois and Michigan-Penn State were both on at the same time. We put Western on the TV and Michigan on the tablet. I thought the Western game was going to be the one more worth watching…

Western beat Northern Illinois and Michigan lost. Again. After the games, I went out placed some holiday lights in our front yard along our bricks…

And then we went to pick up some hoagies from NYPD

Deliciousness. NYPD’s hoagies are out of this world.

Later, we took the dogs on their evening walk and the moon was huge…

Good evening in Northside…

As it started to get dark, we kept going outside to check out our lights…

And we finished putting the lights on our tree…

Genifer did amazing job with the holiday decorations inside the house…

We had a really good Saturday. We got a lot of stuff done today.

Later, we watched some Netflix and chose Hometown Holiday, which was a very bad, poor man’s version of a Hallmark Christmas movie and Falling Inn Love, which was actually really cute.

Long weekends are the best. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ›οΈπŸ’‘πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Hello Christmas tree.

Happy Friday after Thanksgiving! And good morning from Northside…

We put up our Christmas tree out this morning…

We started to add lights but two sets were burned out leaving us with a Christmas tree that was only half-lit …

Unfortunately for Oscar, Genifer found his reindeer antlers…

We ran over to the post office…

We sent a package out that we probably should have mailed last week but I completely forgot about it. We’ll see if it still arrives in time. I hope so.

After we mailed our package, it was Skyline time!

Genifer had a deluxe burrito. And I had a 5-way…

Skyline is so good. I saved my cheese coneys for later. After lunch, Genifer kept working on bringing out the Christmas decorations and I went out to work on the front yard a bit…

We could see our T+G again…

We took the dogs on their evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll work on some Christmas lights…

We had Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner…

Later, we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Minion Holiday Special and then we watched 47 Hours to Live on Netflix. The Christmas specials were terrific. The movie was not so great.

But today was fantastic. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽ„πŸ β€οΈ

Friday pizza party!

We got to see another really pretty sunrise this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And there was this pretty little flower on one of the shrubs in our front yard…

We walked to Sidewinder to get coffees this morning to celebrate Friday…

Fast forward through the work day, and it was officially the weekend! Time for a Toppers pizza party!

Omigosh! Great pizza! What a terrific way to usher in the weekend!

After we stuffed ourselves full of pizza and cheesy bread, we took the dogs out on their walk around the block…

We started watching the second season of Dark on Netflix. And then we all pretty much just crashed out…

We’re really happy we made it through the week. The work week after a vacation always feels so long. Now we can just relax again. I don’t think we really have any big plans for this weekend. There’s still this pandemic that is more out of control now than ever. And I think it’s suppose to rain all weekend too. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ•πŸΎβ€οΈ

And we’re back at it.

It’s Monday morning. And for once, we had a Monday morning that wasn’t rainy. It made it a little bit easier to get out of bed this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And then it was time to get back to work…

A really big project got underway last week while we were kicking it on the beach. It’s probably going to keep me pretty busy for a while.

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Korean Pork Chop with bok choy and pepper lo mein…

They changed their packaging. But they didn’t change the deliciousness…

And it was another delicious dinner. The noodles and the sauce were terrific. And the pork chop was really good too. But I could eaten a huge bowl of just those noodles. They were tasty. We like theΒ Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

Good evening from Northside…

The time change is still really messing with me. It gets dark so early now. These photos were taken just before 6:45pm. It feels like it’s 11pm…

But we made it through our Monday. Genifer fell asleep pretty early and I started watching For All Mankind on Apple TV. It reminds me a bit of The Man in the High Castle by presenting a “what if the United States hadn’t won?” scenario. For all Mankind dramatizes an alternate history depicting “what would have happened if the global space race had never ended” after the Soviet Union put a man on the Moon ahead of the United States, and where would the world be now. I think it’s pretty interesting.

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

It was weird to get back to work today after having yesterday off for the election. It felt like it should have been a Monday but it was a Wednesday. It just made for a really odd feeling day.

We’ve been waiting for this big tree to start to change color…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, We started getting ready for our trip to North Carolina. And we watched more of The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. That series is surprisingly good for just being about chess. πŸ˜€πŸ—³οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

An extra hour of Sunday.

It’s hard to believe that today is November 1st…

It was pretty nice getting an extra hour of sleep this morning…

Good morning from Northside with an extra hour later…

This morning we made these pillsbury Chocolate Chip Sweet Biscuits for breakfast…

They’d become somewhat of a running joke. Every time we were at the grocery, I’d point them out to Genfiier and ask if she wanted to get them. She’s always say no. And I just kept asking every trip for months. Finally the last time we were at the grocery, they were on sale. I put them in our cart and here we are…

They were pretty good. They were remarkably similar to the Pillbury cinnamon rolls. Since the oven was already warm, Genifer made some Snoopy cookies too…

Of course, I focus on the one cookie that’s upside-down. And we learned how to draw Snoopy heads…

And then we just hung out for the rest of the afternoon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. Before dust cheese…

After dust cheese…

After dust cheese with garlic bread…

Gosh. I love spaghetti and meatballs with dust cheese and garlic bread.

We went back out in the backyard to play some more…

After we eat dinner and go outside, we give the dogs their evening treat of a couple of hot dogs chunks so Mack can get his allergy medicine…

Hot dogs might just be the favorite part of Mack’s day.

And I captured this horrible photo of tonight’s full moon…

Any time you can get an extra hour of Sunday, it’s a good thing.

Having just watched Maleficent on Friday night, we watched Maleficent 2 tonight. It was another pretty good movie. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β°πŸͺπŸπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Happy Halloween Eve.

Tomorrow is Halloween. There will still be trick-or-treating but still, it just won’t be the same with the COVID raging, will it? Who would have thought that all the way back in the middle of March that the number of pandemic cases would be still be accerlating eight months later at Halloween?

But at least it’s Friday…

And guess what, it’s also still grey and overcast. So, yeah.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made some delicious cookies…

The blue skies were trying to peek through the clouds…

Good evening from Northside…

We ate oven pizzas for dinner…

The skies were starting to clear…

Maybe it’ll actually be nice for Halloween tomorrow…

Tonight, we watched Maleficent on Disney+. It’s hard to believe that we’d never seen it before. But it was really good. It was great way to wind down our Halloween Eve.

Happy Halloween Eve! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸͺπŸ•πŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Tuesdays are grey too?

This morning looked just like yesterday morning, grey and rainy…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this buffalo chicken pasta

Omigosh. It was soooo good. It was just the right amount of spicy. We had garlic bread with our buffalo chicken pasta. And I love garlic bread.

Then it was back for another walk. And it was still grey and rainy…

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a few more episodes of The Queen’s Gambit tonight.

On the iPad, I watched the Dodgers buy themselves a World Series title. I mean, they had the best team that money could buy. Spared no expense. In my opinion, this season and this World Series should always have an asterisk next to it. But that might be because I just really dislike the Dodgers. They’re like the Yankees of the West. Only without all the championships. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Why are Mondays always so grey?

It was another Monday morning. And it was another grey and rainy morning. Why are Mondays always so grey and rainy?

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were waiting for postwalk treats…

The Pad Thai we had last week was so good that I got this Pad Thai for lunch when we were at the grocery…

The noodles were good. But the flavor definitely wasn’t Pad Thai. It was just Asiany noodles. The flavor was kind of odd, actually. I don’t think I would get these noodles again. At least this flavor.

And for dinner tonight, we hadΒ another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express mealsΒ for dinner tonight. This one was Margarita Chicken with garlic Parmesan zucchini…

And then with the pesto added on top of the chicken…

And it was another delicious dinner. The chicken was so cheesy and the pesto on top of it was great. The Parmesan zucchini was just out of this world good. We really like theΒ Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

It started really sprinkling while we were on our walk this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we started The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. We’re just a couple of episodes in and it’s pretty good so far. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸœπŸŒ§οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ
