An early autumn Wednesday?

So far the weather has been almost autumn-like all week. It was only supposed to reach a high of 79ΒΊ today. This morning was chilly enough to wear a hoodie while we were taking the dogs on their morning walk. And it felt like we should be getting ready for college football this weekend. (Like there’s going to be college football this year.)

Still, it was a very pretty morning…

And good morning from Northside…

I realized that I never posted any photos of our freshly painted living room…

The living room turned out so nice. Genifer did such an amazing job with the painting! We’re looking to get a new sofa with a new, bigger TV and TV stand for our living room so we can hang out in our living room more.

And good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs for dinner again. We love BLTs. I had a BLT wrap. It was terrific…

Genifer went out to lunch at Taste of Belgium with coworkers today. And she brought home a oatmeal raisin cookie and brownie for us to share for dessert…

The icing on the cookie was so good…

And the brownie was more like fudge than brownie. It was very rich…

We played ball in our backyard for a half hour tonight…

All the dogs were so tuckered out afterwards. Mack always crashes out in the weirdest, most uncomfortable looking positions…

And when we got upstairs, Oscar made his way under the sofa. Almost…

It was another pretty good Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

A case of the Mondays.

There was a pretty sunrise this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

It was started out as another slightly overcast day…

Bear was crashed out with me in the office all day…

And we had delicious Mongolian meatball ramen for dinner…

But it turned out to be a very pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we played some ball in our backyard…

The Reds beat the Indians 3-2. And we started watching Dexter on Netflix. It was a pretty good Monday as far as Mondays go. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

A pretty good Saturday.

Today is August 1st. Can you believe that? For being pretty much confined to home since the middle of March, this year is going by really fast. I guess time flies regardless of your level of activity.

This morning started out as another grey and overcast Saturday but at least it was cooler and not as humid today. Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made these delicious banana bread cookies…

We were pretty lazy this morning…

After Arsenal lifted the FA Cup, we drove out to the far-north suburbs of Liberty Township for a cookout to celebrate Alyssa’s birthday. When we were leaving Northside, the skies looked really threatening…

And it rained the entire way to Liberty Township but once we got there it was very pretty outside. The sun came out and there were the biggest fluffiest clouds…

When we got home, we dodged more Northside raindrops and took the dogs for a walk…

And good night from Northside…

There was supposed to be an almost full moon tonight but there were waaay to many clouds. Still, it was a pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

We made it through Wednesday.

It’s hard when you’re really busy with work and there’s nowhere to go and nothing to do. And we were pretty tired today from last night’s MLS is Back tournament matches that both went to penalty shootouts and saw my Minnesota United advance and FC Cincinnati get sent home.

But it was still a good morning from Northside…

I’ve been all about these Kodiak Cakes microwave flapjacks and muffins cups…

Today, I tried the chocolate peanut butter flapjack…

Just a quarter cup of water and 60 seconds in the microwave and you have flapjacks…

They’re really good. I like all the flavors. But the blueberry ones are really my favorites. Speaking of bears, Bear was all crashed out in the office while I was working…

This afternoon I was tinkering with the relatively new Photoshop Camera app and the Photoshop Express app on my phone…

Both of those apps are really neat. There are a lot features. I love being able to remove little blemishes and spots with the Spot Healing feature in Express. I’ll have to keep playing with them.

Good evening from Northside…

And that was pretty much our Wednesday. πŸ˜€πŸ₯žπŸ»πŸ“·πŸ—“️❀️

#TBT Pause for paws.

Milan loved his naps. Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Ugh, Mondays.

It’s another Monday. It looks like this is going to be another super busy week at work.

Good morning from Northside…

We saw this little snail shell on the sidewalk. It was right in the middle of the sidewalk…

When I picked it up to move it, I discover it was empty. I carried it home. And placed it on our little decorative rock next to our shrubbery in our rock garden.

We were both busy at work today. I don’t think this week is going to be a lot of fun.

For dinner tonight, we had the tortilla crusted BBQ chicken with cheesy potatoes and corn Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kit again

It was another really delicious dinner. And it was every bit as good the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsΒ a lot.

Good evening from Northside…

Oscar really likes hanging out under the sofa in our master bedroom…

But he doesn’t go all the way under the sofa. In fact, most of him usually isn’t under the sofa at all…

He’s pretty silly. But you should really hide from Monday before it starts not after you’ve made it through the whole day.

Happy Monday for Northside. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Five years ago, we went up north to visit my parents in Michigan…

Milan made the trip with us, and he just loved my exploring parent’s backyard…

And a couple that didn’t make it to Instagram…

This one was in my Timehop too…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

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

Dinosaurs & cheeseburgers.

I’ve started doing these posts on our blog that just sums up our entire day in one post. I like them especially on days where we don’t do a lot. But I’m really struggling with what to call them. I was just titling these posts things like “Our Friday.” but that’s as boring as what we actually did today.Β 

We both had today off work for Juneteenth. Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to start our day with some Biggby Coffee. On Fridays, it’s free shot Friday at Biggby. You get a extra shot of coffee in your drink… for FREE…

We ran to Whole Foods to get some groceries and we also swung through Home Goods…

And then we were pretty lazy for the rest of the day…

Until we went on a walk with the dogs. There were some really pretty clouds tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

After we dropped the dogs off at home, we kept walking…

Down to Tickle Pickle

For burgers and milkshakes to go…

Our burgers were delicious…

It was a great Friday with plenty of time for quiet reflection. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.
