What do they say about best laid plans?

We watched soccer this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We planned to drive up to Waynesville to check out the Waynesville Fall Fest

But it looked a lot smaller in person than it did on the map, there were so many cars in the parking lot, and we didn’t see any masks on people walking in to the fest….

We decided to add Waynesville Fall Fest to the list of things to do next fall along with the Waynesville Sauerkraut Festival. So we decided to walk through the little shops in Waynesville again…

But first coffee…

I actually got a non-dairy maple shake instead. And it was pretty amazing…

But Genifer got coffee…

The cow painting that I love was still there…

We found three oil paintings here at Lilly’s Corner Mall….

And I almost got this one for the studio office…

If it’s still there the next time we come up to Waynesville, I’m going to get it.

Last time we were in Waynesville, we were told that this building is haunted by two spirits; a little girl and an older man in a top hat. And that they can sometimes be seen looking out the second floor windows…

So now we always stop to look to see if we see anyone in the windows…

Waynesville is always fun. We enjoy wandering in and out of all the little shops. On our way home, we stopped at Genntown Farms to get a couple of little pumpkins…

We stopped for lunch at Doc’s Place in Lebanon…

Genifer had a turkey burger…

I ordered this huge fish hoagie…

We stopped at a little bakery in Lebanon and got cupcakes for later and stopped for coffee at Kidd Coffee in Mason….

Here are our cupcakes….

And here are the paintings we found today….

We took the dogs around the block and Chloe was our in her front yard…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished Only Murderers in the Building on Hulu. It was pretty cute…

It was a really good sports day too. Michigan thumped Northwestern 33-7 and #2 Cincinnati squeaked by Navy 27-20. In soccer, Louisville City knocked off Memphis 901 3-1, Minnesota United drew with LAFC 1-1 and FC Cincinnati lost to Inter Miami 5-1. FC|C’s loss virtually guarantees they’ll win their third wooden spoon in three seasons in MLS. The wooden spoon is awarded to the team that finishes with the lowest point total in MLS. Three for three. At least they’re incredibly consistent.

We had a really good Saturday. 😀🌄🖼️🍔📺❤️

Adobe Max: The Creativity Conference.

Adobe Max is a free, virtual online event that features live and on-demand content, including more than 400+ sessions, labs, keynotes, musical performances, special guest appearances, and a sneak peek at things being worked on in Adobe labs.

Adobe was giving away free Abode Max t-shirts and mine arrived today…

And it came with a sheet of stickers with all the different designs…

Adobe Max is October 26-28. And I’m pretty excited.

Thanks for the t-shirt, Adobe! 😀💻👕❤️

Our Halloween.

Halloween should’ve been perfect this year. It fell on a Saturday, with a full moon and with daylight savings time everyone got an extra hour of sleep the next day. But unfortunately, 2020 had other ideas.

Halloween got off to a very frosty start…

Good morning from Northside…

And for the first time this fall, we had to scrape our windows this morning…

After the windows defrosted, we ran over to the grocery…

And then it was on to Mad Llama for Saturday morning Halloween coffee…

After Michigan State shocked Michigan, we rolled over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a delicious pizza dinner…

As we were walking across the parking lot, a train was rolling by…

Taft’s had a Halloween special this weekend…

We had a Maple vs Amburana double imperial stout before we ordered….

While we drank our beer, we watched our street view WyzeCam to see if there were many trick-or-treaters out and about…

And it looked like there were a few on our street…

There’s our cotton candy….

And there’s our pizzas…

After we devoured our delicious pizza, we took the dogs on a walk and couldn’t help but admire the Halloween full moon…

Good evening from Northside…

All things considered, we had a pretty good Halloween. 😀🌄🍕🎃❤️

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Milk & Mocha Bear and Brown & Cony Life. 😀🐻🐰🎃❤️

Happy Halloween Eve.

Tomorrow is Halloween. There will still be trick-or-treating but still, it just won’t be the same with the COVID raging, will it? Who would have thought that all the way back in the middle of March that the number of pandemic cases would be still be accerlating eight months later at Halloween?

But at least it’s Friday…

And guess what, it’s also still grey and overcast. So, yeah.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made some delicious cookies…

The blue skies were trying to peek through the clouds…

Good evening from Northside…

We ate oven pizzas for dinner…

The skies were starting to clear…

Maybe it’ll actually be nice for Halloween tomorrow…

Tonight, we watched Maleficent on Disney+. It’s hard to believe that we’d never seen it before. But it was really good. It was great way to wind down our Halloween Eve.

Happy Halloween Eve! 😀🌄☁️🍪🍕🐾📺❤️

This is the way.

The new season of The Mandalorian starts streaming today on Disney+…

To say I’m really excited is an understatement. 😳📺🚀❤️

Long lines everywhere.

We got up early this morning and dodged the raindrops to get over to the Hamilton County Board of Elections. We figured since it was really rainy this morning that there wouldn’t be many people in line to vote early…

And holy geez, were we ever wrong…

Those are terrible photos taken from our car but the line stretched the entire length of the building and started down the side. We decided not to wait in line in the rain. I did get to drop my absentee ballot off in the drop box. So at least we accomplished something this morning…

Afterward, we stopped at Biggby for coffee and there was a long line there as well…

But there wasn’t anyone inside Biggby…

We like Biggby. A lot.

It was still rainy this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

Even with all this rain over the last few days, our basement is still completely dry…

We had oven sausages and sweet potatoes for dinner tonight…

I really love sausages and sweet potatoes.

Our new plan for getting Genifer’s vote counted is just to get to our polling place as early as we can on Tuesday. Hopefully the lines won’t be too long. Finger crossed again. 😀🌄🌧️🗳️🤞❤️

Oscar says, “Hello from Northside.”

Looking at the sunrise this morning, I thought the sun might actually break through the clouds. And maybe it would be a pretty nice day…

But it’s still grey this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar came into the studio to visit me while I was working this afternoon…

Hi Oscar! And guess what? It was still grey this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It’s supposed to be rainy again tomorrow morning. Our plan is to try to be in line over at the Hamilton County Board of Elections before it opens at 8am so Genifer can vote early and I can drop off my absentee ballot.

Fingers crossed. 😀🌄☁️🤞❤️

Tuesdays are grey too?

This morning looked just like yesterday morning, grey and rainy…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this buffalo chicken pasta

Omigosh. It was soooo good. It was just the right amount of spicy. We had garlic bread with our buffalo chicken pasta. And I love garlic bread.

Then it was back for another walk. And it was still grey and rainy…

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a few more episodes of The Queen’s Gambit tonight.

On the iPad, I watched the Dodgers buy themselves a World Series title. I mean, they had the best team that money could buy. Spared no expense. In my opinion, this season and this World Series should always have an asterisk next to it. But that might be because I just really dislike the Dodgers. They’re like the Yankees of the West. Only without all the championships. 😀🌄❤️

Why are Mondays always so grey?

It was another Monday morning. And it was another grey and rainy morning. Why are Mondays always so grey and rainy?

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar were waiting for postwalk treats…

The Pad Thai we had last week was so good that I got this Pad Thai for lunch when we were at the grocery…

The noodles were good. But the flavor definitely wasn’t Pad Thai. It was just Asiany noodles. The flavor was kind of odd, actually. I don’t think I would get these noodles again. At least this flavor.

And for dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals for dinner tonight. This one was Margarita Chicken with garlic Parmesan zucchini…

And then with the pesto added on top of the chicken…

And it was another delicious dinner. The chicken was so cheesy and the pesto on top of it was great. The Parmesan zucchini was just out of this world good. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

It started really sprinkling while we were on our walk this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we started The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. We’re just a couple of episodes in and it’s pretty good so far. 😀🌄🍜🌧️📺❤️
