A Tuesday in Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started working this morning, we walked down to Blue Jay for breakfast…

Because it’s the most important meal of the day…

Genifer ordered a half-order of french toast, and I ordered biscuit and gravy…

Breakfast was delicious. Blue Jay is always so good. We don’t eat there nearly enough.We need to really work on changing that.

When we were walking home, we noticed there was a mural started on the front of Schaeper’s Pharmacy…

And there was some sidewalk chalk art

They put down asphalt over the new water main on our street

It looks like they’re pretty much done working on our street.

And good evening from Northside…

Constructing Northside, part three.

The construction crew was back at it early this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on finishing the upper end of our street today…

They were out of view of our WyzeCams all day. Good evening from Northside…

They almost finished our street today. And that was all of our excitement on a Monday. We had leftovers from the grill for dinner. πŸ˜¬πŸš§πŸ’¦β€οΈ

Constructing Northside, part two.

The Cincinnati Water construction crew arrived on our street early this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I grabbed a lot of image captures of all the construction from our third-floor WyzeCam…

Suddenly, the skies opened up and there was a torrential downpour…

And just as suddenly as it started raining, it stopped raining…

And that was pretty much it for today…

I also took these time-lapse videos from our third-floor WyzeCam as well…

When we were on our evening dog walk, we saw this machine…

Good evening from Northside…

They changed the signs…

It looks like they’re going to working on our street next week too. They left this pile of bricks on the side of street. They were the original cobblestone bricks from our street that were still under the asphalt. We snagged a bunch of them…

We’ll find something to use them for in our backyard. It’ll be really neat to have the original bricks from our street in our backyard. πŸ˜¬πŸš§πŸ’¦β€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

Tag! You’re it. I probably have questionable tone everyday. πŸ˜€πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Another good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at Biggby for our weekend morning coffee…

We ran over to Home Depot to get some more stuff for our front yard…

Like this tomato and citronella…

This was our first trip to Home Depot in a long time. And it was also our last trip to Home Depot after we heard they pledged to back Orangey McLiarface’s bid for re-election in November. I should have guessed it with all the orange at Home Depot. We’ll just be shopping at Lowe’s from now on.

On our way back home, there was a train going by overhead…

We got this cute little shrub and planter at Home Depot with our gift card…

After working on our front yard, we fired up the grill…

Those burgers were from Whole Foods and they were out of this world good.

I think it would be interesting to do a coffee table book about the alleys in Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We also planted some little purple flowers in front of our bricks…

Our front yard is looking a lot better than it did a year ago…

We had another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Northside nubs.

How cool would it be to renovate and live in this old church on Chase Street?

Actually, I’m kind of surprised it hasn’t been turned into a brewery or a bar yet. πŸ˜€β›ͺ️❀️

Seen and noted.

The little Northside Rock Dragon was still sitting on its rock on Pullan Avenue…

We still check on him almost every time we go on a dog walk. And he makes me smile every time I see him. πŸ˜€πŸ‰β€οΈ

UPDATE: I tried to take a few better photos of the Northside Rock Dragon…

 

Good evening from Northside.

Tonight, we just walked the dogs and fell asleep watching some basketball. We’ve been so sleepy this week. Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒƒβ€οΈ

Our Boxing Day.

Today was Boxing Day. This morning we watched Arsenal draw with Bournemouth in Mikel Arteta’s first match in charge of my favorite club.

After the match, we walked down to Django Western Taco for lunch. I had one of Chef Josh’s amazing fried chicken tacos. We also shared Django’s amazing jerk chicken quesadilla with some Django chips and salsa. And when we were done with lunch, we shared Django’s Belgian chocolate bread pudding…

Everything was really good, as always. But the bread pudding was just incredible. I’ve had a love affair with bread pudding ever since my second hip surgery. We had never tried Django’s bread pudding before. Now I’ll get it every time we eat at Django. Or every time I feel the need some amazing bread pudding.

After we were done at Django, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Higher Gravity. We hadn’t been to HG in a quick minute. But JJVE gave us a gift card that we thought we would put to use a little bit before the start of the new year while we were still on our holiday break…

The best beer we tried in our taster flight this afternoon was Founders French Toast B@stard Scotch Ale

It was a pretty amazing beer. Very tasty. We watched our Leicester City get thumped by Liverpool. And while we were at HG, we bought our tickets for Higher Gravity’s New Year’s Eve Beer Bash.

Later, the sky was really pretty when we were walking the dogs. It’s not every day you see beautiful night-time clouds…

When we got back from our walk, I put my scarf on Oscar and I think he really liked it because he wore it around until we went upstairs…

And when we got upstairs, we watched some of The Witcher on Netflix. It was a pretty good Boxing Day. πŸ˜€πŸ₯Šβ€οΈ

Northside Rock Dragon.

Sometimes you stumble across little things that are kind of neat…

Genifer found this little dragon on the sidewalk when we were the dogs this evening…

We placed him on a rock next to the sidewalk…

Now he’s been dubbed the Northside Rock Dragon…

And we check on him every time we go on a dog walk. πŸ˜€πŸ‰β€οΈ
