The first day of Summer.

Today was the first day of Summer! And it’s Saturday. Good morning from Northside…

For breakfast, I tried one of these Kodiak Cake Blueberry & Maple Flapjack Cups…

It was pretty darn good for just a little microwave pancake cup. Later, we walked down to Blue Jay to get some lunch…

Genifer ordered a huge Greek salad with a side of french fries and I ordered two cheese coneys with a side of french fries as well…

Look at the size of this pepperoncini that came with Genifer’s salad…

It was almost as big as my cheese coney. I ate it. It was really spicy. I probably wouldn’t do that again. It made my eyes water. Other than that mistake, lunch at Blue Jay was great as always.

When we were walking home, we couldn’t help but notice that the front of the Jackson Hewitt tax office was all smashed in…

Apparently last night, someone ran the red light at the corner of Chase and Hamilton and lost control of their vehicle and smashed into the front of this office, which is right on the street corner. People running red lights has become a real problem in Cincinnati. At least one or two cars go through every traffic light after the light turns red.

On our way home, we also stopped to get more milkshakes from Tickle Pickle

Their Flan Halen strawberry milkshake is my favorite.

And then we were pretty lazy again. At least, Premier League soccer is back on TV…

I woke up super early and caught the end of the Doosan Bears Korean baseball game, The Bears won 8-2. Leicester City drew 1-1 against Watford. And my Arsenal lost 2-1 to Brighton Hove & Albion. It’s really nice to have some sports back in my life. It makes things almost feel sort of normal again. Even though life is still not normal at all.

But it was a very pretty first day of Summer…

And a very good evening from Northside…

We’re having a pretty low-key start of Summer weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

We needed a new rug.

The new living room rug that Genifer ordered arrived today…

We love it! πŸ˜€πŸ˜β€οΈ

Northside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We walked down to Blue Jay for lunch this afternoon…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheese with tomatoes…

I ordered Blue Jay’s chicken tender sammich…

We walked all the way down to Second Place to have a bourbon slush but come to find out that 2P doesn’t open until 3pm right now. They should really post their hours on their social media or something. So we just walked back to Higher Gravity for a beer…

I wish I could find this beer…

HG had some interesting looking beers in their cooler…

I tried one of these coffee vanilla cream ales from Columbus and it was delicious…

It was really nice to get out and get out to some places. We walked home and hung out in our backyard…

And good evening from Northside…

It was a low-key but still really good Northside Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Another good Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at Biggby for our weekend morning coffee…

We ran over to Home Depot to get some more stuff for our front yard…

Like this tomato and citronella…

This was our first trip to Home Depot in a long time. And it was also our last trip to Home Depot after we heard they pledged to back Orangey McLiarface’s bid for re-election in November. I should have guessed it with all the orange at Home Depot. We’ll just be shopping at Lowe’s from now on.

On our way back home, there was a train going by overhead…

We got this cute little shrub and planter at Home Depot with our gift card…

After working on our front yard, we fired up the grill…

Those burgers were from Whole Foods and they were out of this world good.

I think it would be interesting to do a coffee table book about the alleys in Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We also planted some little purple flowers in front of our bricks…

Our front yard is looking a lot better than it did a year ago…

We had another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It turned out to be a pretty nice evening. Oscar approved…

Our Sunday funday.

We woke up early this morning to take Oscar to Petsmart to finally get his haircut. But first, we stopped to admire our front yard again in the morning light…

We were running a bit early for his appointment so to burn a little bit of time we stopped through the drive-thru at Biggby for some delicious Biggby coffee

Then it was time for to get his haircut…

While we were waiting for Oscar to get done with his grooming, we stopped to do some grocery shopping at Kroger…

Holy margarita display…

And it worked. We bought a bottle of peach margaritas. But this giant iguana in a tree didn’t get us to buy anything…

Oscar was ready to come home with some new toys…

And he looked so handsome again…

After we got home with Oscar with put away our groceries, we sunk our stepping stone into our front yard…

And then we rewarded ourselves with one of those margaritas in our backyard…

As we sat on our patio in our backyard, the skies started to look a bit ominous…

And was pretty much our Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ“…β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It was a really beautiful evening tonight…

And after working on our front yard, we hung out in our backyard this evening…

Good evening from our backyard in Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Oscar is sooooo fluffy

He gets a very much needed haircut on Friday. πŸ˜€πŸΎβœ‚οΈβ€οΈ

And here’s photo of Oscar when we were still able to watch baseball…

I really miss baseball.

Greetings from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

Oscar was surveying his kingdom in our backyard…
