An afternoon in Waynesville.

Good morning from Northside…

They were working on our street this morning…

Early this afternoon, we headed up to Waynesville

They were having a little street faire that we wanted to check out and we wanted to wander in and out of the all the little shop in the “antique capital of the MIdwest…”

Waynesville has a lot of very historic buildings…

We were going to eat at Stone House Tavern

So we walked back down to the end of the street faire to one of the food trucks…

They had Canadian Poutine…

Believe it or not, we’ve never had poutine before. And it was delicious…

We stopped for a espresso milk shake…

When we were done shopping, we ordered a pizza to take home with us…

And Genifer got and coffee and I got a strawberry smoothie for the ride home…

Good evening from Northside…

They didn’t make much progress on our street…

The pizza was delicious! Waynesville was a lot of fun. We were looking for old paintings to hang in our dining room. We found a few paintings to get us started. It was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš§πŸ›οΈπŸ–ΌοΈπŸ•β€οΈ

The Olympics are over.

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

They had the panda and train on-shelf today…

And we stopped for coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs round the block…

Good morning from Northside…

We ate this sausage alfredo flatbread for lunch…

Our HelloFresh arrived today…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner, we ordered takeout from China Food…

China Food is so good. And then we sat out of our back patio and watched the end of the Olympics.

After 16 days, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics came to a close. The USA volleyball team won gold in the final event of the games to top China in the gold medal count and finish on top of the overall medal overall. The USA secured 21 overall medals in the final weekend to finish out the Olympic spectacle with 25 more medals than any other country. It’s been an exciting two weeks of lasting Olympic memories. And the pageantry of closing ceremonies was a spectacle of its own.

But between the time difference, repetitive programming, and the endless re-airing of events, these Olympics were the most exhausting, challenging and frustrating to try to watch. And while NBC tried to create an immersive and watchable experience, the modern world of social media shattered the old model of replaying and re-airing events.

Luckily for us fans of the Olympics, there are two positives about the next go-around. There’s only a three-year wait until the Paris Games. And they should provide an daytime schedule of live events. No matter what happens in 2024, it can’t get much worse than the much-missed Tokyo spectacle.

Still, we did the best we could to enjoy the heck out the Tokyo games. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ₯‘πŸ“ΊπŸ†β€οΈ

Hello August.

Good morning from Northside…

Early this afternoon we ordered Domino’s for lunch…

I like Domino’s. I think they make a good, solid pizza pie. And Genifer loves their cheesy bread.

we sat out on our back patio and watch some of the Olympics.Track and field was on tonight…

And then we switched over to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final: Mexico versus the United States…

The United States beat Mexico 1-0 to lift their seventh Gold Cup. And they beat Mexico for the second time in less than three months!

What a great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸ“Ίβš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

We tried to move our burger night.

Good morning from Northside…

Our hanging plant is our backyard is getting lots of new flowers…

After work, we walked down to Gulow Street. We wanted to switch our Burger Tuesdays to Burger Wednesdays. But when got to Gulow Street, we learned that they are closed on Wednesdays…

Who knew? We never even thought about double checking to make sure that they were open on Wednesdays. Oh well, lesson learned…

So we waked over to Chameleon to get slices instead…

We wanted to start with their spicy cheese bites with marinara sauce. But the bites had been replaced with huge spicy cheese sticks…

Spicy cheesy goodness! And our slices showed up…

Chameleon’s slices are amazing as well. But it’s weird eating pizza when you were really ready for a cheeseburger. But with that said, I also ordered one of Chameleon’s deep dish pepperoni pizzas to go for lunch tomorrow.

Maybe we’ll just move our burger night to Friday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒΈπŸ•β€οΈ

Pineapple IS a pizza topping.

Early this morning, we got up and ran over to the grocery…

Kroger had both pandas and trains today in the international aisle…

And Kroger always has the best balloons.

Afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some java whips…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Taft’s house salad is terrific…

Today, Taft’s had a special Hawaiian pizza…

Anyone who says pineapple isn’t a pizza topping clearly hasn’t had a Hawaiian pizza because they are delicious. We finished all of it while we watched more Olympics…

We used some more of our Taft’s gift card. And we still have a little bit of our gift card left. It’s been the gift that keeps on giving. We love Taft’s.

And good evening from Northside…

We had a great Sunday and a great weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•πŸπŸ₯—πŸ”β€οΈ

#JJVECincy2021 Saturday.

Hello from Northside…

The clouds were looking a bit on the dark side this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning Oscar was given the nickname Captain Oskey. And Mack was dubbed Cowboy Mac ‘n Cheese. Mostly because the kids thought Mack’s spots make him look like a little cow.

We headed out to start our big fun Saturday with JJVE. We had to duck under some awnings for cover from rain showers twice once we were on our way. And then the sun was out…

We walked to Bonomini Bakery to get donuts for breakfast…

Food & Wine recently named Bonomini The Best Doughnut in Ohio

We ate our donuts over at Hoffner Park…

But we were still hungry so we had lunch at Taqueria 251

Their esquite is pretty incredible…

And their chilaquiles rojos were really good…

After lunch, we walked over to Urban Artifact

When we got home, all of us took the dogs around the block…

We stopped at the playgrounds up at the school on the top of the hill…

Good evening from Northside…

We played some hybrid soccer in our backyard, made a bunch of drawlings and had an NYPD Pizza party…

We discovered Rollino Lattes…

And we played a bunch of Uno…

It was a big day. The kids wore Mack out…

We had the most amazing Saturday. It was the best day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ₯°β€οΈ

More special deliveries.

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning. And when we got to Lowe’s, it started pouring down rain…

Like torrential downpour rain…

Believe it or not, we needed more stones. But this time, we got more river peebles…

And when we were on our way to our car, still raining…

And we stopped for more Mad Llama coffee

I had forgotten how many llamas were inside Mad Llama…

Mmmm… Java whip…

When we got home, the rain had let up and we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

So grey…

We were expecting another special delivery…

Later in the afternoon, the sun decided to make an appearance…

Good evening from Northside…

To celebrate the sun coming out, we walked to NYPD to pick up a pizza party…

And we hung out in our backyard…

Part of our special delivery were these flamingo lawn ornaments…

And since it was a bit cool from the rain, we made our first fire pit…

And another of special deliveries was this projector for our back patio…

The screen from our projector arrives tomorrow.

We’re starting to really love our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ•πŸ¦©πŸ”₯πŸ“ΊπŸ€β€οΈ

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad out there…

Good morning from Northside…

Today was the first day of summer. And there wasn’t any rain in the forecast today so we got to work on our backyard…

We dumped 15 bags of pea gravel and 15 bags of river rocks and 15 drainage rocks in our backyard this afternoon…

I think we’re going to need a lot more rocks.

We got cleaned up and headed over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Today, Taft’s had a specialty cheesesteak pizza for Father’s Day…

And it was delicious! Everything they do is amazing.

Good evening from Northside…

Two of the best words in all of sports… GAME. SEVEN.

We’re so happy with how our backyard is progressing. And any day that involved Taft’s pizza is a really good day. This was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸΎβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ•πŸ»β€οΈ

A Sunday pizza party!!

Our front yard is still looks pretty nice…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for a Sun day pizza party…

We shared a house salad and a white pizza with chicken, cherry tomatoes and arugula…

Their special item today was mozzarella sticks…

Ohmigosh. Taft’s is so good. It’s one of our favorites…

And it was a beautiful Sunday evening so we hung out on our back patiio for a bit…

We can’t wait to keep working on our backyard. It’s going to be so awesome…

We had a really good Sunday.
