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?

A morning without power.

Good morning from Northside…

We lost power this morning after we got back from our walk. The power company said power was scheduled to return around 1pm. We ran out to get Skyline for a lunch a little bit before noon…

When we got home with our lunch, the power came back on. And it was Skyline time!

And then it was time to get to work.

Good evening from Northside…

There was really pretty light coming into the back of our house…

Today really made me really appreciate having electricity. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšก๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Yardwork and a full moon.

We put down ten bags of pea gravel in our side yard…

And we completed the first section of our retaining wall along our fence…

It was so nice today. We sat outside and drink one of our ciders from Gatlinburg…

And there was a full moon tonight…

Saturday, March 20th.

Today was the first day of Spring. And it felt like it…

We walked to Blue Jay for lunch…

We walked over to Boswell’s Alley to watch Michigan’s first round tournament game against Texas Southern. After the game, we stopped to have a few drinks at Northside Tavern. And on the way home, we picked up hoagies from NYPD. We had a really good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿปโ™ฅ๏ธ

Sunday, March 7th.

The dogs found a little patch of sunlight in our front bedroom…

Michigan lost to Sparty to end their championship regular season. The Wolverines first game of the Big Ten Tournament will be on Friday at 11:30am.

Around 10pm, we were watching the NBA All-Star Game on TNT and our lost our power. Apparently, all of Northside lost power…

Genifer got a text from the power company that said a car hit something that knocked out power to the entire neighborhood. I woke up around 1am and thankfully, our power was back on. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ”ฆโค๏ธ

Saturday, March 6th.

I’d never seen all The Hobbit movies. So tonight, we started watching the trilogy…

Three years of Mack.

Three years ago today, Mack joined our family…

Fast forward to today, and I thinks he’s pretty comfortable with us. He even has his favorite spot where he loves to sleep. He’ll wander off to sleep in his spot. And if you ever can’t find him, he’s probably right here…

We love him and we’re really happy he’s part of our family. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Monday, March 1st.

I’ve been really struggling with trying to come up with a creative, witty headline for our blog posts. Everyday is pretty much the same, and it’s getting really hard to come up with different headlines for basically the same day. I’m going to try something new. For the time being, I’m just going to try putting the date in place of a headline. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

But today would have been an easy headline… Please find your bunny.

Someone still hasn’t found their lost bunny…

That poor bunny was sitting next to this fence before we left on our trip. Poor bunny. I hope you find your people soon.

We packed and were pretty lazy for the rest of the evening. It’s nice to be back home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Someone lost their bunny.

Good morning from Northside…

Dog toys end up in the oddest places, like on the stairs…

Someone lost their bunny…

Good evening from Northside…

We had taquitos for a dinner snack…

Our backyard is a muddy mess with the melting snow. We can’t wait to start working on it and making it nicer…

We hope someone finds their bunny. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŒฎโ™ฅ๏ธ

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I thought Ice Bear had been pulled out of the claw machine…

But he was just moved from the front corner to the back corner. poor guy…

They were still out of pandas and trains…

But there were still plenty of Valentine’s Day balloons…

Lotsa balloons…

Cincinnati was expecting a big winter storm starting later in the afternoon. And that made the check-out lines really long…

And we stopped for coffees…

Arsenal smacked around Leeds United, 4-2. And Michigan was finally back from their three week COVID pause and they had to play away to Wisconsin…

And BOOM! They didn’t miss a beat…

After the Michigan game, we went over to Taft’s for pizza…

We tried Taft’s newest beer, Hazy Cabana Juice

It was really good. We got some loaded tots…

Very blurry tots. And we got a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza…

Taft’s had a Valentine’s Day special with a heart-shaped pizza and cannoli. We didn’t get the special deal but they had extra cannoli and gave us a couple…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out and had a few drinks and watched Mavs basketball…

It probably wasn’t the world’s most romantic Valentine’s Day but it was a really great Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ
