Our best-laid plans.

You know what they say about best-laid plans, right? This morning we got up and moving in a very timely fashion for a Saturday morning. We walked Oscar and headed out to Cincinnati Music Hall for the Crafty Supermarket. We got down into Over-the-Rhine a little after half-past eleven and it was already a mess. There were people everywhere around Music Hall, especially at the entrance. It was like watching ants flowing into and out of the mouth of their anthill. The parking lot under Washington Park was already full, and the garage behind Music Hall wanted ten bucks to park. It was more than we could bear just to wander around a silly, overcrowded arts show. What a mess. I thought it was much better last year when it was at UC’s student center. So we packed it in and drove back to Northside to park our butts on a stool at Second Place for the Arsenal versus Manchester United match and the Crosstown Shootout between Cincinnati and Xavier. One of the games ended really well, the other did not. Xavier: 👍 Arsenal: 👎 While we were at Second Place, Genifer this amazing cheeseburger that was a steal at only $6…

This amazing cheeseburger that was only $6…

And I had this incredible breakfast sammich

It was delicious! When we got home we hung out with Oscar and just watched some of the college football conference championship games…

Tonight’s moon was beautiful. We can’t wait to see tomorrow’s Super Moon…

So our Saturday ended up being completely different from how I thought it was going to be. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything. 😀🏀⚽️🏈❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

I met Genifer after work at Higher Gravity for another Meet the Brewery. Tonight’s brewery was Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery from Athens, Ohio, and Higher Gravity had four of Jackie O’s beers on tap…

On draft tonight were Jackie O’s Cool Beans coffee blonde ale, Ties That Bind barrel-aged sour, Chomolungma honey nut brown ale and Barrel-Aged Wood Ya Honey Wheat Wine

Both Ties That Bind and Wood Ya Honey were both very rare and very expensive…

The Meet the Brewery events at Higher Gravity are always tasty and fun. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Good morning from Northside.

We were celebrating a coworker who is leaving to start a new adventure…

I got some new pens at the art supply store…

Goodnight from Northside.

Before bed every night, we walk Oscar up and around the hill at the end of our street. When you get to the top of the hill, it’s really a beautiful sight to see all the lights from the surrounding neighborhoods…

Good night from Northside. 😀🌃❤️

A new friend.

We got our Google Home an Amazon Echo to keep it company…

The Google Home does a really great job with information and answering questions. And the Amazon Echo does a really great job with music, especially when it’s paired with Amazon Prime Music and it has a very nice rich, full sound for such a little device. I’m hoping these two become the best of friends because we really like them both a lot.

Good morning from Northside.

The streak of beautiful sunrises continues…

Good morning from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

Tickle Pickle Taco Tuesday.

I met Genifer after work tonight for Taco Tuesday at Tickle Pickle

We noticed their little sidewalk sandwich board outside on our way home from dinner at Django Western Taco last Tuesday

I ordered two ground beef tacos and Genifer ordered two black bean tacos…

They were really outstanding tacos! And I love that they were soft shelled tacos too. They were really packed full of all sorts of good stuff. We also got a side of Tickle Pickle’s really delicious mac&cheese…

We really didn’t need the mac&cheese but it’s so good. After finishing our tacos, we got a couple of milkshakes to go. Genifer got an Oreo Speedwagon shake and I got a Flan Halen strawberry shake…

Next week, we’ll have to try Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday. And it’s anything like their Taco Tuesday, we’re going to be in from a real treat. Because I can’t wait to go back to Tickle Pickle for more tacos! 😀🌮❤️

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made a little lasagna for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread! It was outstanding. 😀❤️
