Already three times this year.

As we were getting up and moving this morning, there was a loud pop that we could hear over our sound machine and then we lost power.

Oh. And it’s still grey and overcast…

Good morning from Northside…

On our way home from our walk, Duke Energy was already arriving on our street…

They had our power back on a little before 9 am. But I think this was already the third time we’ve lost power this year. And that’s a little worrisome. The Duke Energy website said there was an animal on the line. Poor squirrels.

Anyway, we have a lot of blooms in our front yard…

We had cheesy turkey wraps on the panini press for lunch …

The panini press has become one of my favorite little kitchen appliances.

After we finished our work day, we went on our walk and the sun was out!

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered El Taco Veloz through DoorDash…

Genifer gets the kids quesadilla with a side of beans and rice…

And I love their ground beef chimi…

El Taco Veloz is sooo good. I love that there is a service that will bring me a chimichanga whenever I really need one. What an amazingly wonderful world we live in.

If you look really close just above the leaf in the dirt, there was a little baby bird in the back corner of our backyard…

I don’t think the little bird had mastered flying yet, it would flap it’s wing but wouldn’t go anywhere. Eventually, it hopped through a gap in our fence where the side meets the back. Hopefully, it figures out how to fly pretty soon.

When we got upstairs, I was looking out our front window and I got the impression that tonight’s sunset might be really pretty…

I went back down to check it out in our backyard…

But it was just an okay sunset. But it was a really good day. We watched a couple more episodes of Lisey’s Story on Apple TV. And I’m super excited because the Euro Championship starts tomorrrow afternoon! 😀🌄🏡🇲🇽🫔❤️

A Saturday without power.

We woke up this morning and still didn’t have any power. We walked Oscar and then headed off to find someplace with food and air conditioning. When we got to the end of the street, we got our first real glimpse of what knocked out our power last night. It was this huge tree limb that fell on the power lines…

We walked down to Second Place to hang out for a bit. We got some lunch at Second Place. Genifer got Second Place’s awesome Cuban sammich and I got the smoked pork belly lunch special from The Littlefield

And my pork belly was served with buttermilk biscuits, warm peach compote, and a Jalapeño buttermilk slaw!

We hung out at Second Place for a while, watched the USMNT play Panama in the Gold Cup and then came home to our house without power. Apparently, Duke Energy says power should be restored by noon tomorrow. Thankfully, it was a pretty comfortable evening that wasn’t too hot…

It’s weird and kind of spooky trying to navigate your house without lights…

UPDATE: After spending the night in our surprisingly cool second guest bedroom, we woke up at 6:30 Sunday morning with power! HOORAY FOR POWER! 😀❤️

Friday night without power.

We were sitting on our back patio this evening and watched a storm roll in…

It poured and poured with really strong winds…

After the storm was over, there was a pretty spectacular post-storm evening sky…

We were sitting on our back patio watching the Reds game, and we heard a loud crack. BOOM. All of a sudden our power went out. Pitch black. We walked down to the end of our street to see if we could figure out what happened. We couldn’t see a lot. But it looked like a huge tree limb had fallen on some power lines…

We were hoping that our power would be back on when we woke up in the morning.
