Happy Father’s Day.

Today was Father’s Day. We hope all the dads had a wonderful day. Genifer The dogs got me an awesome new BBQ utensil set and a super-cool new Reds t-shirt for Father’s Day. It was really very unexpected. She’s the best wife. They’re the best dogs.

Good morning from Northside…

One of the little bushes we planted in our front yard is full of little blossoms…

We ran over to Kroger this morning…

Someone bought the train that was full of jello cups in the International aisle. And now there is this jello cup filled panda bear…

Every time we go to Kroger in Oakley, this baby cart is in the cart corral…

After we were done at the grocery, we got the Audi washed at Mike’s Carwash…

And while we were over in that part of town, we had to stop for our weekend edition of Biggby Coffee

We were so mad. We forgot to bring our reusable straws today…

But our drinks were delicious as always!

Laters, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

Taft’s was having a Father’s Day special…

A large short rib pizza, caesar salad, a loaf of cheesy bread, and a growler for just $45?

YES PLEASE! I like watching the world go by through Taft’s garage doors…

While we were waiting for our pizza to arrive at our table, we watched the monsoon that had just started dropping sheets of water out of nowhere…

And there it is! Our delicious pizza…

We just ate on the pizza. We took home the cheesy bread, caesar salad, our growler and about half of the pizza…

When we were getting ready to head out, I super long train started rolling by Taft’s too…

Trains are so cool. I could sit and watch the trains go by all day.

On our way home, we stopped at Second Place for a bourbon slush…

When we walked the dogs, the asphalt in the parking lot atop the hill at the end of our street was steaming…

Good evening from Northside…

And we ended our weekend by hanging out in our backyard…

It was a really good Sunday. 😀🗓️❤️

Our Friday.

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started working this morning, we ran over to Oakley to get gas from the Kroger Fuel Station. We had enough Kroger points to get 30¢ off each gallon of gas…

And then we stopped at Biggby for beverages and I tried their sun-dried tomato, ham and swiss bragel. Their bragel breakfast sammiches are really good…

From Biggby, we ran over to Whole Foods to get some groceries…

For dinner, we made this pizza we got from Whole Foods from dinner tonight…

And good evening from Northside..

That was pretty much our Friday. 😀🗓️❤️

Saturday morning errands.

This morning we got up, dodged the raindrops and ran over to the grocery store…

I stopped to look for a birthday card for my sister…

Since the last time we were at Kroger, they placed doors over all the refrigerated sections like where the eggs and yogurts live…

Just another handle to touch. It seems like the grocery store is slowly returning to normal as far as supplies go. There were very few empty shelves this trip. There were also these adorable BBQ themed balloons…

After we had all our groceries, we stopped at the Kroger Fuel Center to get some gas. Genifer had so many Kroger Rewards points that she got $1 off each gallon of gas. And it made the gas just 59¢ a gallon…

We wished we could have filled the car up twice…

Because it only cost $8 to fill up our car…

On the way home, we stopped to get some Biggby Coffee

It was just a rainy morning. But at least, we got our grocery shopping out of the way for the week.  😀🛍️☕️❤️

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today, we celebrate some very obscure Mexican military victory over the French with all things Mexican!

HOLY GUACAMOLE! When we were at Kroger a few days ago, they had all the Cinco de Mayo stuff you could ever need…

And this year, Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday! I’m super excited because I’m pretty sure we’re having tacos for dinner tonight to celebrate! We hope everyone gets some tacos today and has a wonderful Cinco de Mayo edition of Taco Tuesday. 😀🇲🇽🌮❤️

UPDATE: And here’s my taco…

At least there were Shiny Stars.

We ran to the grocery again before work this morning…

We’ve found that going to the grocery early in the morning is the best time for us to go. And another surprising outage at the grocery were the bags of store brand cereal…

Thankfully, they still had lots of bags of Shiny Stars still. Shiny Stars are my favorite…

Did I mention I really like Shiny Stars? It’s my favorite cereal. 😀🥣🌟❤️

Seen and noted: Sunday morning edition.

This morning we got up early to go over to get our weekend Biggby Coffee

Genifer tried their Starry Night Latte. She said it was really good. And I got my Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with butterscotch…

I get the same thing every time. Once we had our drinks, we headed over to Kroger to get some groceries. Valentine’s Day is next weekend and the Valentine’s Day stuff was pretty much everywhere…

We saw another chocolate Perfect Man

We saw the perfect Valentine for a man…

All these adorable llamas said hey…

Also, chocolate Easter bunnies are out on shelf at Kroger…

I don’t know when Easter is this year. But it feels pretty early for Easter bunnies.

And we saw this panda bear in the international food aisle…

The panda was filled with these weird jello cups with floating bits of fruit…

I wonder if they’re any good? The Asian section of the international food aisle is usually where the odd ball stuff is stored.

There’s always something mildly interesting at the grocery store. 😀☕️💗❣️❤️

Fun stuff makes therapy better.

This morning Mack had a vet appointment to get updated on his vaccinations. And then later in the morning, I had physical therapy. We left a little bit early to stop for breakfast at Sleepy Bee in Oakley. It was so good. Genifer had The Worker Bee breakfast slam…

And I had The Broakley breakfast sammich…

Then it was on to physical therapy…

Later in the afternoon, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a beer while we watched the kickoff of the new season of English Premier League soccer between Leicester City (hooray!) and Manchester United (boo!)…

And we had some knots with beer cheese and a little pizza…

Unfortunately, Leicester lost 2-1. But Jamie Vardy scored so that’s something good.

Physical therapy hasn’t been bad. And I actually look forward to it because my hips feel much better afterward. But sandwiching it in between a couple of really fun activities makes it even better. 😀🍳🏥🍺🍕⚽️❤️

Rooted Juicery and Kitchen.

We had lunch catered in from Rooted Juicery and Kitchen in Oakley. Rooted aims to provide their customers the most delicious and health-packed plant based foods possible. I ordered the burrito wrap. It was brown rice, Mexican beans, pickled onions, guacamole, pico, romaine, cabbage, walnut “taco” meat, cashew cheese & bbq sauce…

It was surprisingly good for being entirely plant-based. It would have been outstanding with some chicken or real taco meat. But I guess that’s not really their thing. I also had a blissful blend drink…

The drink was outstanding. I could drink a couple of those everyday. It’s good to try different things every now and then. Especially when it’s free. 🙂
