If you get up for just a second and Oscar will steal your spot on the bed. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Our Boxing Day.

Today was Boxing Day. This morning we watched Arsenal draw with Bournemouth in Mikel Arteta’s first match in charge of my favorite club.

After the match, we walked down to Django Western Taco for lunch. I had one of Chef Josh’s amazing fried chicken tacos. We also shared Django’s amazing jerk chicken quesadilla with some Django chips and salsa. And when we were done with lunch, we shared Django’s Belgian chocolate bread pudding…

Everything was really good, as always. But the bread pudding was just incredible. I’ve had a love affair with bread pudding ever since my second hip surgery. We had never tried Django’s bread pudding before. Now I’ll get it every time we eat at Django. Or every time I feel the need some amazing bread pudding.

After we were done at Django, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Higher Gravity. We hadn’t been to HG in a quick minute. But JJVE gave us a gift card that we thought we would put to use a little bit before the start of the new year while we were still on our holiday break…

The best beer we tried in our taster flight this afternoon was Founders French Toast B@stard Scotch Ale

It was a pretty amazing beer. Very tasty. We watched our Leicester City get thumped by Liverpool. And while we were at HG, we bought our tickets for Higher Gravity’s New Year’s Eve Beer Bash.

Later, the sky was really pretty when we were walking the dogs. It’s not every day you see beautiful night-time clouds…

When we got back from our walk, I put my scarf on Oscar and I think he really liked it because he wore it around until we went upstairs…

And when we got upstairs, we watched some of The Witcher on Netflix. It was a pretty good Boxing Day. πŸ˜€πŸ₯Šβ€οΈ

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! We got up early this morning to get some Biggby Coffee

Genifer has been really liking their Peppermint Mocha Latte with almond milk and I’ve been all about the Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a shot of butterscotch. I also a big fan of Biggby’s sausage egg and cheese breakfast bagel sammich on an Asiago bagel. It’s really good stuff all the way around…

After Biggby, we went over to Rookwood Commons to do some last-minute shopping. We were mainly looking for some stuff for the dogs. But all I did was take photos of adorable stuff like these two characters…

How about caramel coffee flavoring in a penguin bottle wearing a winter hat?

Or a larger than life-sized plush penguin…

Oe a Triceratops sleeping bag…

I bought this sugar cookie ix because how cute is that little polar bear serving tray?

I like bears. After shopping, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket so I could get my Chicken Finger BLT. I really like Rusty Bucket and I love that chicken sammich. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk and then we were pretty lazy…

It was a pretty good Christmas Eve Eve…

And it’s been a really good break so far. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΎβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

It’s Advent Calendar season! We got the both of the dogs their own Advent calendars…

I doubt Oscar knows what Advent is, but I know he really likes any sort of treats…

I was going to take photos of him eating his first Advent treat but they were gone too fast. I don’t know that he even chewed them…

Oscar loves his treats. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

Also, it’s crazy that it’s already December 1st.

Checking in on the OscarCams.

Oscar was sleeping on the sofa. We love seeing what Oscar is up to on the OscarCams. We were all pretty lazy for the rest of the day. πŸ˜€πŸΎπŸ“·β€οΈ

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸΎβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Genifer got Oscar this new super fuzzy dog bed…

I think he really likes it a lot. I went downstairs to refill my water and Mack was waiting for me at the top of our third floor stairs…

Pumpkin patch pop-up.

We noticed there was another little pop-up pumpkin patch at the Montessori School atop the hill at the end of street this morning…

Oscar and Mack really seemed to enjoy sniffing all the pumpkins. I think they stopped to sniff each and every pumpkin. πŸ˜€πŸŽƒπŸΎβ€οΈ

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to eat delicious pizza and BBQ chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year to have a Taft’s Gourd to Death

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. We sat there at Taft’s just stuffing our faces full of pizza and BBQ wings while we watched our birds-eye view of our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

Not surprisingly, there weren’t a ton of people out and about. Thanks for all the great memories, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ¬πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

Shhh… we’re resting…
