79000 check-ins.

This morning I tallied my 79000th check-in on my Swarm

I stillΒ reallyΒ like my check-ins on Swarm! πŸ˜€β­οΈβ€οΈ

But I think I’m going to be done with Swarm when I hit 80,000 check-ins, if not sooner. They made some changes to the app because of COVID-19 and it’s just not nearly as much fun anymore. We’ve had a good run Swarm.

Great sports… for a Tuesday.

We were trying to find the Reds game on TV tonight. But on Fox Sports Ohio was game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Columbus Blue Jackets. And the Reds were coming on as soon as the hockey game was finished. The problem was the hockey game became an epic five overtime thriller,..

I’m not a huge NHL hockey fan. But it was crazy that every time we tried to turn on the Reds game tonight, this hockey game was still going. We came back from walking the dogs, still going. We played ball and went upstairs, still going. And finally, Tampa Bay scored to take game one from Columbus in what turned out to be the fourth longest hockey game in the NHL history despite the Jackets goalie’s NHL record 85 saves…

And then it was time for the finals of the MLS is Back Tournament

And thankfully, Portland Timbers defeated Orlando City to lift the trophy…

I don’t mind the Portland Timbers. They’re probably my third favorite MLS team. But I do not care for Orlando City and I especially don’t care for Orlando City’s “star” player, Nani. I didn’t like him when he played in England for Manchester United, and I certainly don’t like now. Not at all. Not one bit. He’s just an entirely unlikable player. I’m really happy he didn’t win.

But other than Nani, the MLS is Back Tournament was so much fun. I watched every single match. And it was really terrific to have three soccer matches to watch each day for a couple of weeks during the group play. It was a great tournament. And I already miss it. I feel like I’m going through MLS is Back soccer tournament withdrawl right now. I hope they do some version of a tournament like this every season.

It was a really great sports night… for a Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ’βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

A wonderful start for Tuesday.

The sunrise this morning was a really pretty one…

I bet Mack was wondering what the heck I kept looking at…

And here’s what it looked like when I shared it on Instagram

It was pretty morning in our backyard too…

And good morning from Northside…

When Genifer went to lunch with her coworkers at Taste of Belgium, she also brought home a bag of blueberry Belgian waffles, and those waffles are delicious…

It was pretty this afternoon in our backyard as well…

While I was working this afternoon, Mack wandered into our office and set one of his squeaky toys on my leg and left…

And Bear was crashed out in Mack’s crate in our office all afternoon…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Italian Sausage Penne with sun-dried tomato cream and sweet corn…

It was another really delicious dinner. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

After dinner, we shared a giant chocolate chip cookie that Genifer brought home with her from Currito…

Oscar likes laying under our dining room table while he waits patiently for us to finish eating dinner so he can go on his walk…

And good evening from Northside…

And then we wrapped up our Tuesday back in our backyard again to play more ball…

We had a pretty darn good Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

Fast forward to this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

It was another Monday. And Mondays are the most uneventful day of the week.
It seems like we never do very much on Mondays. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Slow down and Sunday.

Happy Sunday! Good morning from Northside…

Here’s another photo our new hose, still without any leaks…

Genifer made cupcakes this afternoon…

But before we ate cupcakes, we took the time to slow down and grill…

We were about to grill up a whole bunch of good stuff…

Why does everything always taste sooo good off the grill?

Recently, we stopped buying hamburger and hot dog buns. We could never eat them all and we would end up throwing a bunch of them away. We found this sweet Hawaiian bread that we really like. It’s really tasty. We’ve just been using that bread for just about much everything. And now, we don’t waste a bunch of buns!

After we finished eating our grilled feat, we went back out in our backyard to play some ball. It was a really pretty afternoon…

Oscar doesn’t really play a lot in the backyard. He prefers to go on walks instead of running around in the backyard. The only time he really runs in the backyard is if a squirrel wanders into our backyard. Mostly, he just likes to sit on the patio and take it all in. But sometimes, he’ll leave his patio and go out and sit out in the sun…

Later, we went on our evening dog walk…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a really nice and relaxing Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸŒ„πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸΎβ€οΈ

A really good Saturday.

It was a really pretty Saturday morning…

Hello moon…

Good morning from Northside…

Our replacement hose showed up and it works great with no leaks…

And then we went to Kroger for groceries…

Kroger had some adorable balloons today

And afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some Saturday morning coffee…

There was train crossing over the road on our way home…

We mowed the weeds in our backyard

Three weeks until our fence gets replaced and then we can start working on making our backyard look more respectable…

We got this delicious fruit at the grocery…

Good evening from Northside…

We played ball in our backyard for another half hour…

Those dogs play ball until they can’t play ball anymore…

Mack wandered off in the middle of the night. And I found him on our office WyzeCam all crashed out in the office…

And this photo of Oscar was in my Timehop

We had a really good Saturday.

Hooray for Fridays.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Mad Llama to get some coffee before we started work…

And then I wrapped up my projects for the week…

We had the rest of our pizza for dinner and then it was good evening from Northside…

And we played ball in the backyard for another half-hour. I think playing ball is Bear’s favorite part of his day. Oscar’s favorite part is probably going on walks. I think Mack just likes everything. He’s just a very happy dog.

I just like it when the workweek is over and we can enjoy the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Brown and Cony Life.

I’ve pretty much gone off the Instagrams of late. But still, I scroll through now and then to check out a few of my favorite Instagram accounts. One of my favorites for a while now has been Milk & Mocha and another of my favorites has quickly become Brown and Cony Life.

Brown is a bear and Cony is a bunny. And their Instagram follows their interactions that are just so cute and their adventures are so random and everyday normal life. It’s also very Asian and the translated captions are pretty funny sometimes. But I just find it so cute and so funny.

Like when Brown & Cony went out to eat and the comic follows Cony’s whole routine to capture all her photos of the outing to upload to her social media…

And then the post the next day was a drawing of Cony’s photo collage…

It’s funny to me because it’s just what everyone does. Brown & Cony Life is pretty cute. And they upload a new post every night at midnight. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸ»πŸ°β€οΈ

Thursdays are for pizza parties.

Look at these beautiful clouds that were hovering over Northside this morning…

We got to the top of the hill at the end of our street and I was lucky enough to get this photo of our little family minus me and the cat…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we walked over Sidewinder to get coffee…

Cheers!

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we had an NYPD Pizza party. And NYPD got their awning back

We got two medium pizzas tonight…

Genifer got her pepperoni and banana pepper pizza…

I had been wanted to try the NYPD’s Crimebuster…

The Crimebuster is NYPD’s almost everything pizza, loaded with pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, ground beef, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and green olives…

And it was delicious. It reminded me a lot of the pizza we had in Louisville. We love NYPD Pizza. And then we played ball in the backyard for another 30 minutes…

Pizza parties make Thursdays pretty darn awesome. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

Remember Whip Classics?

Dang. Remember when we would stop after work on Thursdays at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic and fries and maybe a cheese coney?

I miss those days so much. I miss being able to go places and do stuff. Stupid COVID-19.

Thanks for all the delicious memories, Timehop.Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ”πŸŸπŸŒ­β€οΈ
