Norwegian trains vs. Bob Ross.

It seems like we have a subscription to almost every streaming service imaginable: YouTubeTV, Netflix, PrimeVideo, Hulu, Disney+, Peacock for Premier League soccer, CBS for Champions and Europa League soccer and ESPN+ for MLS, USL and Serie A soccer. Whew! Even with all those streamers, we still absolutely love PlutoTV. Pluto is 100% free TV and movies with 100s of TV channels and 1000s of movies. Did I mention Pluto is 100% free?

I listen to PlutoTV most of the time while I’m working during the day. I love it because I can pick a channel and watch the same program for as long as I want. I don’t have to try to find something new to listen to every hour when a new show comes on. PlutoTV is perfectly splendid.

PlutoTV is constantly updating their lineup and adding new channels. Just recently, they removed one of my very favorite channels, SurfTV. Nothing but surfing shows 24/7. It was awesome. But sadly, it is no more. And that’s perfectly dreadful. But one of our other favorite channels on PlutoTV is SlowTV

SlowTV is nothing but beautiful, scenic train rides through the countryside of Norway 24/7. The scenery of the Norwegian countryside is just gorgeous. We love it. And we fall asleep to SlowTV almost every night.

But Pluto just added a 24/7 Bob Ross painting channel….

The new Bob Ross channel might give SlowTV a run for it’s money for the channel we fall asleep to every night. We’ll have to give it a try. πŸ˜€πŸ“ΊπŸ›€οΈπŸ–ΌοΈβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Since they’re finally done working on our street, we moved our stones and bricks back to their original place in our front yard…

I think we’re going to come out of the water main replacement on our street with only losing a couple of flowers. And that’s really not too bad.

And after our fun afternoon, good evening from Northside…

My Minnesota United was playing FC Cincinnati tonight at Minnesota. Apparently even with the pandemic, a ban on spectators at the matches AND the match being played all the way in Minnesota, FC Cincinnati matches are still blacked out on ESPN+…

Come to find out that thankfully, you can actually stream the FC|C matches through YouTubeTV now…

Minnesota United knocked off FC Cincy 2-0. And Louisville City neat Swope Park Rangers 2-1. It was a great way to end a really fun day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ“Ίβš½οΈβ€οΈ

I’m really bad at painting.

The trees colors are starting to change up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get Friday morning coffee…

And good evening from Northside…

We had delicious ramen noodles for dinner tonight…

We’ve been working on staining our new backyard fence

It turns out I’m not very good at painting at all…

Thank goodness it’s Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸœβ€οΈ

Hello October.

It’s pretty crazy to me that today is the first day of October…

For still being in the middle of a global pandemic, stuck at home and not really being able to do much of anything, this year certainly has flown right by. I would like my 2020 back, please. I think we should all get to take a mulligan for this year and get to try 2020 over again next year.

They weren’t working on our street this morning. So we got to go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street and say…

Good morning from Northside!

This is what the street looked like in front of our house this morning…

But a little while later, they filled it in with asphalt…

And good evening from Northside…

We ordered hoagie sammiches from NYPD

And after we stuffed our faces full of delicious NYPD hoagie sammiches and french fries, we played ball in our backyard and we watched the beautiful sunset clouds….

It’s just really nuts that it’s already October. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺ🍟❀️

Hello from Northside.

It ended up being another grey and overcast day today but just like yesterday, the clouds were so pretty. This morning, this evening, and later from our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

And Genifer made this terrific cheesy turkey, sweet potato, and spinach skillet bake for dinner tonight…

It was so delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. Other than that, it was just another Wednesday. I’m ready for this week to be over. And I really can’t wait until they’re finally done working on the water main on our street so we can go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street in the mornings. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ₯️❀️

T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒˆπŸΎβ€οΈ

Over 47.5 million views.

My photos on Google Maps/Local Guides just passed 45 million views…

It’s pretty crazy because just two days ago my photos on Google Maps hit the 45 million view milestone. That’s 2.5 million views in two days. Nutty.

Thanks for giving me another way to share my photos, Google! And I’m almost to level 9 local guide on Google Maps. I just keep working hard on my Google Maps contributions.Β #LetsGuide πŸ˜€πŸ—ΊοΈπŸ“·β€οΈ

A day of pretty skies.

The clouds were really pretty when we woke up this morning…

But it was getting pretty gray when we were taking the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on our street again this morning…

I’ve really enjoyed watching all the machines from our WyzeCams

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. We had the Stroganoff Pork Meatballs with potatoes and peas again…

The stroganoff sauce was so good we had to have this meal again. And it was another really delicious dinner the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

It was sprinkling a little bit as we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

The sky was really pretty this evening…

It was a really beautiful blue-gray.

And the sunset was even prettier from our backyard…

It was just a day of very pretty skies. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈβ€οΈ

We watched Enola Holmes on Netflix tonight. It was pretty good.

Fantasy baseball 2020.

I had five fantasy baseball teams competing in ESPN head-to-head points leagues. To be honest, I had a really hard time getting into fantasy baseball this season. I neglected my teams a lot and had a hard time remembering to update them. Four of my teams didn’t do very well. But even with all my neglect, my Whipty Dips finished 5-2 on the season…

They actually made the playoffs in the winner’s bracket…

And come to find out, they actually won their league…

So I earned myself another fantasy baseball championship

Fantasy baseball is still pretty fun.Β  πŸ˜€βšΎοΈπŸ†β€οΈ

And it’s a low-key Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at the grocery out in West Chester…

Ugh. Those don’t even really sound good. 😝 But they did have the panda AND train at this Kroger…

We stopped at Skyline for lunch to go…

We took lunch over to Geri’s to visit for a bit. And then it was back home…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a wonderful Sunday. The weekends always go by so fast. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚πŸŒ­πŸβ€οΈ
