Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

It looks like a beautiful day for a road trip. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Just trying to get through the week.

Good morning from Northside…

Faithful Companion dropped off Svensk’s remains this morning…

Our home feels very empty without her with us. We miss her so much.

There was a little garter snake in our backyard this afternoon…

Thankfully the dogs didn’t notice it.

Good evening from Northside…

We had buffalo chicken pasta for dinner…

We’re just pretty ready for this week to be over. πŸ™πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Rest in love, Svensk.

Our kitty, Svensk has been really struggling for a while now…

She passed away peacefully in her sleep early this afternoon in her spot on her favorite bed…

Faithful Companion came out to our house this afternoon to pick her up for cremation…

Our home definitely feels emptier without her with us anymore…

I kept looking over at her bed all evening expecting to see her there…

Svensk will be missed greatly. She was 17 years old. 😒😭🐾❀️

#TBT Pause for paws.

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

Westside Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We went out to The Westside to sign our tax documents to be sent off to the tax people…

We’re getting a little money back from federal and state and broke even with Cincinnati.

While we were over there, we stopped at the grocery for some dog food…

And then we stopped at Jersey Mike’s Subs to get lunch to take home with us…

I had only ever eaten at Jersey Mike’s one other time a long time ago. I don’t even remember what I ordered. This time I got the #56 Big Kahuna and it was really good.

Other than that, we were pretty lazy. We’ve been watching Shadow and Bone on Netflix. It’s pretty good.

There were a couple of good photos in my Timehop today. First was Oscar riding around in the back of our Jetta…

And there was this photo proving that once there was indeed grass in our backyard…

And this photo of Mack all crashed out…

Happy Foursquare Day!

Today was Foursquare Day (4.16)…

Good morning from Northside…

And time for post-walk treats…

After work, we tried a couple of beers from my parents trip out west…

The tangerine citrus ale was pretty good but the blueberry wheat was outstanding.

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered off the kids menu for dinner tonight…

It was pretty good start to the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βœˆοΈπŸΎπŸ»β€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

We were still a little tired and achy this morning from our vaccinations yesterday…

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

Later this evening, it got really overcast…

And here are a couple of Oscar photos that showed up in my Timehop today…

Back when we had grass in our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

We’ve been vaccinated!

Good morning from Northside…

The Cintas Center has become a COVID-19 mass vaccination site…

And this afternoon we had appointments to get our COVID-19 vaccination…

The whole thing took about an hour…

And now we’ve been vaccinated!

Good evening from Northside…

We were feeling a bit achy and tired after our shots. After we walked the dogs, we just went upstairs and watched TV in bed for the rest of the evening. So it was just kind of like any other night.

Here’s a photo of Milan from 10 years ago…

Just another Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We worked in our backyard all afternoon. We finished the retaining wall along our fence and took along our back fence too. And we put down a little edging barrier next to our sidewalk in our side yard…

And this evening, there was really pretty evening light coming in from our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

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?
