Dang. Still more rain.

Good morning from Northside…

The sun was out and the skies were blue with wispy white clouds this morning but by lunch time it was pouring down rain…

Mack and Oscar were waiting patiently for me to finish up with work…

Good evening from Northside…

Our second HelloFresh meal for the week was Sheet Pan Pork Sausage & Pepper Flatbreads with Monterey Jack and mozzarella…

I just don’t know what to say. All the meals are so good.

After dinner, it started raining again…

And it kept raining all night. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿฝ๏ธโ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธโค๏ธ

A rainy Saturday morning.

It was raining again this morning…

The waterfall from the neighbors gutters was in full effect…

Oscar did not want to go out in the rain…

Eventually, the rain stopped long enough to go on a quick walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We didn’t have a big puddle on the side of our house…

We put together this little entryway table…

We got sammiches from NYPD Pizza for lunch…

NYPD is so good. After we were done eating the sun came out….

Good evening from Northside….

Mack and Oscar were drinking out of the same water bowl again…

There was an almost a full moon tonight…

Today was also my 1100th Timehop in a row…

And there were photos of these two in my Timehop today…

We had a great Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Now we’re ready to rock & roll.

Good morning from Northside…

Our backyard is ready for some more love…

And early this morning, our delivery from Lowe’s arrived…

We moved all the bags of rocks to our side yard…

And we tried to place all the bricks and pavers as we moved them…

We were almost done moving all of stuff when the skies started to get really dark…

We had two little paver stones left as it started to sprinkle…

And we moved the empty palettes to the side of the house just as it started to rain. You’d never even know there were just three palettes of landscaping material on the sidewalk just a little bit ago…

I have a feeling that our backyard is going to be pretty incredible once all this is done…

The side yard waterfall was in full effect…

But right now, it’s all just turning to mud…

It pretty much rained all day and then the sun came out this evening…

Surprisingly, all the rain didn’t make that much of a mess…

We also put down a bunch of rocks next to the front corner of our house…

Then we rewarded ourselves by walking to Chameleon to get some pizza…

Mmmm… Chameleon pizza…

Chameleon just started doing a deep dish pizza too…

We took our deep dish pizza home with us…

And then we sat out on our back patio to admire the progress we’d made…

We’re so excited. We think our backyard is going to be so nice soon…

But I could feel Genifer eyeballing my deep dish pizza…

And it turned out to be absolutely delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿ•๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Another Monday.

Dang. And it was ANOTHER overcast and rainy morning…

It was perfect weather for a Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Did I mention it was sprinkling this morning?

Genifer went to the grocery this morning and brought home these…

Our sidewalk had lots of berries on it this morning…

And it was still overcast this evening…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one wasย Cheddar Tortilla Chicken with pepper and potato hash…

It was another great meal.ย We really like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.ย After dinner, we hung out on our back patio of a bit…

Tonight, we started watching Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. We made it through another Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Burritos, berries and Ragnarok.

It was another grey and overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Drunken Tacos through DoorDash for lunch…

We ordered the Loco Pollo Burrito with chicken, refried beans, lettuce, queso fresco and topped with queso blanco…

And we ordered the Bulgogi Burrito with marinated Korean beef, grilled onions, jalapeรฑos and topped with spicy mayo…

And we ordered a couple of tacos…

The tacos were pretty good. But the burritos were just out of this world!

The sun made an appearance this afternoon after we were done eating…

Good evening from Northside…

And our side yard sidewalk was covered in berries again. This was after sweeping them all up earlier this morning…

This evening, we finished Ragnarok on Netflix. And now we’re going to have to find something else to watch.

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

It’s starting to look better.

Today got off to kind of an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran back over to Lowe’s this morning…

And we stopped at Mad Llama for coffee and bagels…

And then we did some work in our yard. We finally finished staining our fence…

We planted these marigolds…

We hung our wind chimes…

We got a couple of plants for our hanging baskets…

We forgot to get more pea gravel for our side yard. But we got another planter…

Two more little planters…

And planted plants in them…

But we ran out of potting soil before we could get to our Yucca…

We planted more marigolds…

We moved our little ground coverings from the side yard to the front yard…

Hopefully, they do better over here…

And we got this little mini rose bush…

Next, we’ll have to work on our grass and try to figure out what to do with the path in the backyard and there has been talk of a couple of rock rivers. But it’s starting to look a little better in our backyard.

Good evening from Northside…

We sat on our patio and watched FC Cincinnati lose the home opener in their beautiful new stadium…

We ate frozen oven pizzas…

And called it a Sunday…

We had another really good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐ŸŒปโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Soccer Saturday with some yardwork.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s to get some stuff for our backyard…

We listened to the FA Cup final while we almost finished staining our fence…

But we ran out of stain. Again. And we put some little pea gravel down on the other side of the path in our side yard…

We walked to Tickle Pickle to pick up an early dinner…

I’m not certain but I think Tickle Pickle might have got a big new sign…

But they have fries now!

BAM!

And the fries were delicious…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll go get some more stain for our fence and some flowers for our side yard…

Later, we watched the ladies of Racing Louisville play to nil-nil draw…

And we watched Minnesota United snatch a 1-0 win in the 95th minute

It was a really good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

It’s Friday!

Good evening from Northside…

This morning we walked down to Blue Jay for Friday morning breakfast…

On the way home, we stopped and got Sidewinder coffees and finished out the rest of our work day…

Good evening from Northside…

We hung out in our backyard…

We had a couple of drinks that were in our refrigerator…

We had a good Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿปโค๏ธ
