A pretty good Wednesday.

Good morning from Northside…

Our final Hello Fresh meal this week was Street-Cart-Style Chicken Shawarma Bowls with bell pepper, pistachio rice and creamy cilantro sauce…

We went three-for-three again on our HelloFresh meals this week. They were all delicious. And we still haven’t had a meal that was even just mediocre, let alone bad. Two thumbs up.

A random Bird scooter found it’s way to the corner of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And here are a few photos from our sunny side yard…

We had a pretty good Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Friday burger night.

Friday got off to a gloomy start as well…

Good morning from Northside…

The bushes were covered in these little white flowers…

After work, we walked down to Gulow Street for our new Friday Burger Night…

On our way home, we stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern and then we took our very patient pups around the block on their walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And we finished our Friday by sitting out on our back patio fan watching some Olympics for a little bit…

We had a pretty good Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Lunch from Morsel & Nosh.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we walked over to Morsel & Nosh for lunch…

Genifer ordered the tuna melt…

And I ordered The Violet. It was delicious house-made chicken salad with lettuce on a soft and flaky croissant..

And I added a slice of American cheese. Whenever possible, I always add a slice of cheese. Cheese makes the best stuff even better. They were terrific sammiches. We can’t wait to go back to Morsel & Nosh for lunch again very soon.

Good evening from Northside…

Our HelloFresh meal tonight was Sheet Pan Turkey-Meatball Flatbreads with mozzarella, bellpepper and onions…

Their flatbreads are some of my favorite meals.

This evening we put this little pet memorial for Svensk under our tree in our side yard next to our pet memorial for Milan…

I miss the kitty so much. I think about her every day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ‘ผโค๏ธ

#JJVECincy2021 Sunday.

Our morning started off with knocking around the soccer ball in our backyard…

And we took the dogs on their morning walk…

Violette and Edgerton took turns walking Captain Oskey…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get breakfast and coffees…

And we walked Up Hamilton Avenue to eat our breakfast at Jergen’s Park..

And we got to play at another playground…

After playing in the park, we walked home through Parker Woods…

After a bit, we headed down into Over-the-Rhine…

We parked at Washington Park and walked to Taft’s Ale House for lunch…

Lunch was delicious. We walked back down to Washington Park…

So the kids could play in the fountains…

And they got to play on the playgrounds…

Then we walked over to get rolled ice cream…

The ice cream was delicious! Thanks Simply Rolled!

We had a really great time down in OtR…

On our way back to Northside, we drove by the new soccer stadium in the West End…

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block. Violette and Edgerton took turns walking Captain Oskey again…

Good eveinng from Northside…

Violette wanted to rake the stones in our backyard…

We fired up the grill and made some burgers and hot dogs…

When we were at Taft’s Ale House, Surf’s Up was coming on one of the TVs in the bar. The kids became enamored with the movie. So this evening, we watched it in our backyard…

It was a pretty good movie. The kids really seemed to like it.

It was another really wonderful day with JJVE. We had the most amazing Sunday. It was the best day again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธ

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.
