The Tokyo Olympics are underway!

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we watched the Tokyo Olympics Open Ceremonies. I thought they were very poignant yet exceptionally beautiful. For me, he most spectacular part was the amazing drone display…

Such pageantry. We’re really excited for the Olympics. With still working from home because the pandemic, it’s a quite opportunity to get to really deep dive into the Tokyo games and have them on in the background all day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Also, it’s hard to believe there isn’t an emoji for the Olympic rings.

The start of a long weekend.

Today was the start of a long, four-day holiday weekend…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We got Mad Llama coffee…

We also stopped at Home Goods…

And we got Potbelly for lunch…

Ohmigosh. Potbelly is so good…

I put my new little stool in our studio office…

We spread some more pea gravel on our side yard…

It started sprinkling on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And it really started raining just as soon as we got home…

Whenever it really rains, there’s always a waterfall cascading from the gutters and down off the side of the neighbors house…

Somehow the water always seems to drain pretty quickly. But it doesn’t really cause us any problems. I’ve just never seen a gutter waterfall like that.

Right now, Oscar’s favorite toy is his hedgehog…

He’ll hide it and then forget where it’s been hidden…

And then he gets so excited when he finds it again…

We dodged the raindrops and went out in the backyard for potty breaks…

We watched Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse on Amazon Video. It was pretty good. And we finished Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix. For a super hero series, it was the slowest burning show I think I’ve ever seen. It was ten episodes of nothing but back story and character development. I bet the second season would have been pretty good if it hadn’t already been cancelled.

And that was our Friday. It was a pretty good one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Friday evening in our backyard.

Good morning from Northside…

We’ve been going to Blue Jay for breakfast on Friday…

Mmmm. Northsider omelette…

We stopped for coffee on our way home…

We ordered this new rug for our second floor hallway…

Oscar slept on the rug while I finished up work…

And just like that, it was the weekend…

Good evening from Northside…

We sat on our back patio and had some drinks…

We watched the final NBA play-in game, and the Grizzlies beat the Warriors 117-112 in overtime…

Congrats Memphis! In the first round of the playoffs, the Grizz get to play the team with the best regular season record and number one overall seed in the playoffs, Utah Jazz.

Mack got tired of being outside with us and went inside…

Creepy.

Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿบ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

One year ago.

One year ago, we were just figuring out how to work from home…

Fast forward a year, and I’ve really fine tuned my little work space…

I have my little set-up down pat. It’s a pretty functional space. It’s going to be really hard to go back to working in an office. Thankfully, it sounds like it’s still going to be a while until we have to go back to commuting to an office. They are projecting a return in September at the earliest now. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿก๐Ÿ’ปโค๏ธ

The joke’s on us.

Today is April first and that means, it’s also April Fool’s Day…

But the joke was on us because it was snowing this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We saw our first snail of the spring…

I moved the snail from the middle of the sidewall on the stairs to the edge of the sidewalk by some mulch over by what might someday be an orchard…

It was still snowing…

Good evening from Northside…

We had an NYPD Pizza party tonight…

Remember when Oscar used to hop up on the sofa in our office studio and look out the window?

๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฆ–๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Tuesday, March 9th.

Our Kroger Prep+Pared Taco Tuesday was delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒก๐ŸŒฎโ™ฅ๏ธ

A snowy Friday in February.

Hello from Northside.

The sun was so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack keeps migrating a lot of the dog toys to our studio office…

And for some reason, most of the toys always accumulate here.

It was a very pretty evening too…

Genifer made pork chops with sriracha Brussels sprouts for dinner…

She always finds the best recipes to make. Tonight, we finished Lupin. We hope there are more episodes coming sometime soon. It was a pretty good show. And today was another pretty good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Thursday NYPD Pizza party!

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar’s been hanging out with me in our studio office while I’ve been working…

Good evening from Northside…

Time for our weekly Thursday evening NYPD Pizza party

Ohmigosh. Our NYPD pizza and cheese garlic bread was so good.

This evening we started watching Manhunter: Unabomber on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran out to get some Christmas Eve Eve Biggby coffee

We ran around a little bit to do some last minute Christmas shopping…

We got some odds and ends stuff. And a bunch of new dog toys for Oscar & Mack. I also got Mack a new dog bed and Snoopy blanket to go in our studio office where he sleeps a lot. I snuck his new bed upstairs while he was outside…

I showed him his new dog bed and he pretty much spent the rest of the day lounging on it…

While I was hanging out in the studio office with Mack, I decided to check out day 23 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

I think he really likes his new dog bed…

Later, we had a NYPD Pizza hoagie party….

NYPD hoagies are so good. And their fries were even better than normal tonight.

We dragged Mack off his new dog bed to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After he got his treats, Mack was right back upstairs, crashed out on his new dog bed…

This evening, we finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix. It was a really good series. We hope they get around to making a third season someday. But it probably won’t be anytime soon.

And Mack was still sleeping on his new dog bed…

We hope everyone had a Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Oh. I also thought these drawings from @crazyheadcomics & @wearyourvoice were really beautiful…

It just reaffirms how blessed we are and how good we have it this Christmas Eve Eve.
