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. 😀🌄☕️🍕🐾❤️

A very pretty Thursday.

It’s Thursday. We’ve almost made it through another week…

Good morning from Northside…

Fast forward through the work day to the sunset this evening in our backyard…

Genifer made these turkey mushroom stuffed acorn squash for dinner…

And they were delicious! She always finds the best recipes to make.

After dinner, we went back out in our backyard to check on the sunset…

And then we took the dogs around the block. There was a big X is the sky…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, I was trying a different camera app. I was looking for an app that made it easier to control the contrast because I thought some of my photos have looked washed out lately. Now, these feel a little too dark. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Later, we watched the Thursday night football game. While we were watching the game, I remembered something I heard one of the announcers say during last week’s Thursday night football game…

Last time I checked, points aid in one’s pursuit of a win when playing a game that a score is kept.

It totally sounds like something Joe Buck would say.

Today was also my 888th Timehop in a row…

And in my 888th Timehop in a row was one of my favorite gifts we ever received, our Cincinnati Reds All-Star Legacy Brick

We had another pretty good Thursday. 😀🌄🐾🍽️🦕🧱❤️

Mackerel sky & Snoopy cookies.

There were some very pretty clouds this morning…

They created a very low ceiling over Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

I need to learn more about clouds. It would be neat to be able to say, “check out these mackerel sky altocumulus clouds we had over Cincinnati this morning.” I don’t want to be a weather person but meterology is pretty neat.

I put out the trash and recycling this evening and there was the moon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had broiler sammiches for dinner tonight. Mine was Cajun turkey and cheddar on Hawaiian bread…

And Genifer made more Snoopy cookies

Good night moon…

I had to work on my work projects this evening for meeting tomorrow. And the was the only part of today that was kind of a bummer. 😀☁️🥪🍪🌙❤️

Two years ago.

Two years ago, I got this “Rocket Drone ZF7 With Folding” to review…

I was so excited to try it out. There’s a big open soccer field behind the school on top of hill at the end of our street. I started flying it and…

With it still hovering in place, I started to record video of my drone’s maiden flight. I touched the left joysticks and the drone started to drift away from me. Frantically, I started moving both joysticks to try to pilot the drone back in my direction. But the controls went completely unresponsive as the drone drifted towards tall trees just on the far side of the soccer goal in the photo above. I started to run after it hoping that if I got closer to it maybe I could regain some control of the drone. But I couldn’t get close enough in time and I watched it hit the top of one of the trees and drop to the floor of Parker Woods on the other side of a ten-foot chain-linked fence…

And it’s still out there somewhere…

Maybe someday I’ll try a different drone. Maybe one from DJI. But probably not any time soon.

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😐🦕❤️

Tuesdays can be hard too.

The sky was so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had to run an late errand late this morning, and while we were out the sky started looking very threatening…

But it never rained, thankfully. We picked up Wendy’s for lunch on the way home. After we finished lunch, it was just work, work, work for the rest of the afternoon.

And finally, it was good evening from Northside…

All these photos this evening were taken just before to seven o’clock…

We were pretty tired this evening. I think we were both asleep shortly after nine o’clock. Ugh, Tuesdays. Amiright? 😀🌄☁️❤️

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 the 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.
😀🌄💻🍜📺🚀❤️

One year ago.

One year ago today, Genifer picked up her new Audi Q3…

We’ve driven her Q3 all around town, out to the Outer Banks… (twice!), over to Indianapolis and up to Michigan. We’ve put just over 11,000 miles on it in the first yeat. It’s been a wonderful vehicle that’s fun to drive and easy to maintain.
She picked a good one!

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕1⃣❤️

It’s nice to be home.

Our first day back home and of course, it was a cold and rainy morning…

Welcome back to Ohio and good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery because we didn’t have any food in our house…

It’s the middle of November and there were Christmas display all over the store. I chose to ignore all that nonsense. I could ignore this giant lion…

Kroger had the panda bear and the train back on the shelf again today…

I forgot to look at the balloons. I bet there were some great Thanskgiving balloons. Hopefully, I’ll remember to look if we go to the grocery store next weekend.

After the grocery, we stopped at Mad Llama for Sunday morning coffee…

One of my favorite sayings is, Comparison is the thief of joy. On our way home, we had a discussion about which was better: the Espresso Shake from Sunset Ice Cream in Duck OR the Caramel Java Whip from Mad Llama. They are both really good. I think I like the Java Whip from Mad Llama better because it’s soft serve, coffee AND caramel, which is a good thing because we can get to Mad Llama a lot easier than we can get to Sunset Ice Cream. But why compare? Why not just enjoy both?

We have some leaves to rake in our backyard…

But it was so rainy this morning that we’re not going to be able to rake them today. The leaves were so wet. That’s fine because we just wanted to be lazy today. And the sky still looked pretty ominous…

I think Mack was really happy to be back home again…

Later, we took the dog’s around the block and the sky was so pretty…

And good evening from our backyard…

I took all the photos this evening with my little DJI Osmo Pocket. And they turned out really nice, even in low light. The contrast was much better than my mobile’s camera. I think I need to find a different Android camera app to try. However, the DJI Osmo Pocket struggled with these night clouds that we saw from our backyard…

It was really nice to be back home. We pretty much laid around all day and watched football. I worked on my photos and videos a bit. We did laundry and got ready to get back to work tomorrow. Later, we finally finished The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. For a show about chess, it was really very good.

It’s fun to go place but it’s also nice to be back home. 😀🌄🦁☕️📺♟️❤️

350,000 views.

Today, my reviews on Google Maps went over 350,000 views…

Back at the beginning of September, my reviews on Google Maps had just over 300,000 views. It’s all a pretty big accomplishment, if you ask me. And it’s pretty neat. It’s nice to still be popular. It’s been tough with all the COVID-19 but I keep working hard on my Google Maps contributions. Thanks for giving me another way to share my photos… and experiences, Google! #LetsGuide 😀🗺️📷❤️

Good evening from Northside.

We saw this great sidewalk chalk art on top of the hill at the end of our street…

After looking at this photo, I think we were looking at it upside down.

Good evening from Northside…

It’s fun to visit new places and go on trips but it’s also nice to be home. 😀🌄🐾❤️
