Another overcast start.

Dang. It looked like it was going to be another grey and overcast Sunday…

The last day it wasn’t grey and overcast in the morning was Wednesday

Nonetheless, good morning from Northside…

We saw some pretty flowers out on our walk…

And all these Black-eyed Susans…

And the sun came out for our evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And we played in our backyard for a while…

The sun was out in our backyard too…

It was a very low key Sunday. We didn’t do very much at all. We didn’t even go to Taft’s to get delicious pizza. Maybe next weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ»β˜€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

Hooray! It’s Friday.

Dang. Yet another grey morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

Before we started work, we ran over to Kroger for some groceries…

Have you seen these digital advertising strips on the displays at the end of the aisles?

I should have taken a video of them. But I’ve been yelled at so many times for taking photos in Kroger that I get a little gun shy. They were fully animated with varied advertising messages. They were really cool. But they weren’t nearly as cool as these monster candles…

Kroger had the panda and the train again today in the international aisle…

And they had fun unicorn balloons

Seen and noted were these Wendy’s Baconator Pringles chips…

They don’t sound good to me. But what about some Halloween candy?

Why wouldn’t there be Halloween Reese’s Cups pumpkins in the grocery on July 31st?

We had delicious BLTs for dinner…

We’ve been on a real BLT kick lately. Probably because BLTs are so delicious.

And this evening it was still grey…

Good evening from Northside…

Thank goodness, We made it through another week. Bring on the weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

 

Hello from Northside.

It was another grey and rainy morning. Good morning from Northside…

I found this Northside sidewalk snail in the middle of the sidewalk. I brought it home and placed it on our bricks…

And it was still grey and rainy when we took the dogs on their walk this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

Hello from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒβ€οΈ

The last Monday in July.

Today is the last Monday in July. How crazy is that? I guess time flies when you sit home and rarely leave the house for four months.

This morning there were actually clouds in the sky for the sunrise…

Most of the mornings recently haven’t had any clouds in the sky for the sunrise. I think the breaking morning light on the clouds is what make the sunrise so pretty.

Good morning from Northside…

See? Not a cloud in the sky again…

This morning I buzzed the grass in our little front yard before I started work…

I swept our sidewalk to make the photo look nicer…

Here’s one from the other end of little front yard…

Our little shrub has a bunch of blossoms on it now…

On my way back inside the morning light was so pretty filling our living room, I stopped to take a couple of photos of our freshly painted living room walls…

Our living room looks so pretty. Genifer did such an amazing job with the painting!

For dinner tonight, we had the tortilla crusted BBQ chicken with cheesy potatoes and corn Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitΒ again. They changed the label design on the packaging for the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express…

It’s a really delicious meal. Even though we completely forgot to put the tortilla strips on our chicken. There hasn’t be much variation in the Prep+Pared meals at Kroger lately. I think this is the third time we’ve had this meal. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot. But I hope next time we go to the grocery there are some new options.

This evening the clouds moved in and it got pretty overcast…

And good evening from Northside…

Of course when we got to the top of the hill, it started sprinkling…

It was a fitting end to another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

It was just a really grey day.

Good morning from Northside…

It looked like it was going to be another grey and overcast day. Hopefully, the sun will come out a little bit later just like it did yesterday.

Bear has become my new shadow. It seems like he’s never more than a few feet away. While I was working today, he slept in Mack’s crate next to me in our office. And he brought all of his new favorite toys with him…

The sun never came out today. It was grey and overcast all day long…

Good evening from Northside…

We tried to play in our backyard before it started to rain…

The sky started getting darker and darker…

When we got upstairs, it was starting to sprinkle again…

And then it started getting really yellow outside…

It was just a really grey and rainy day. πŸ˜€β˜οΈβ€οΈ

A Wednesday pizza party?

When we let the dogs out in the backyard this morning, it looked like it was going to be another grey and overcast day of working from home…

When we went out on our morning walk, we saw just how grey and overcast it was…

Good morning from Northside…

Someone lost their shoes. I’ll never understand how someone loses their shoes

We used to see it quite a few abandoned shoes when we lived downtown. Somehow it made a little more sense to me downtown. I don’t know why.

The little shrub in our front yard is starting to blossom…

Just as I was settling in to get down to work, it started pouring…

Slowly throughout the day, the sun started to come out. Later, we had to pick up a refill of Oscar’s allergy pills from the vet. And then we continued on to Finneytown to pick up some carry-out Domino’s pizza for dinner…

We usually have our pizza parties on Thursday. But we were in the neighborhood. So why not have a Wednesday Domino’s pizza party?

Genifer ordered a crispy thin crust with pepperoni and banana peppers. I got a thick pan crust double sausage and we shared some cheesy bread…

Dominos pizza is delicious. It’s so good. When we lived downtown, we used to order Dominos all the time but we don’t get it as much now because it’s just not as convenient as it was and they don’t deliver to Northside. And that’s a bit of a bummer. But what are you going to do?

Good evening from Northside…

It turned out to be a really pretty evening. And it wasn’t a bad Wednesday either. But pizza parties help make any day pretty darn good. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Cheeseburgers & thunderstorms.

Good morning from Northside…

We went to get Biggby Coffee

Biggby Coffee is so good. We like it a lot.

We had to run some errands up north today, and afterward, we found ourselves out in Lebanon. We stopped to fill up our gas tank at this Marathon station…

It was just across the street from this train…

And we were presented with an unusual fuel option…

πŸ€”

We decided to just go with the plus. On our back home, we stopped at Quatman Cafe in Mason for lunch. We’ve been to the Quatman in Norwood a couple of times but we’ve never been to the one in Mason before…

Quatman always has a daily special. Today’s special was a cheeseburger, fries or onion rings and a drink for $8. Two, please…

Those onion rings look delicious…

And those burgers were as delicious as they were big. And they were huge! I don’t know why we don’t do to Quatman in Norwood more. Their burgers are terrific and it’s really inexpensive to eat there. We really need to change that and eat more Quatmans.

Quatman was sooo good. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk around the block. There were some ominous looking storm clouds that had just passed us…

But as soon as we got around the block and up to the top of the hill at the end of our street, it started raining…

And when we got home and looked out in the backyard, it was pouring…

It seemed fitting that it would rain on the end of our weekend. It was a great Monday. It was a really great long weekend. And now we only have to work four days this week to get to our next weekend!

Happy Father’s Day.

Today was Father’s Day. We hope all the dads had a wonderful day. Genifer The dogs got me an awesome new BBQ utensil set and a super-cool new Reds t-shirt for Father’s Day. It was really very unexpected. She’s the best wife. They’re the best dogs.

Good morning from Northside…

One of the little bushes we planted in our front yard is full of little blossoms…

We ran over to Kroger this morning…

Someone bought the train that was full of jello cups in the International aisle. And now there is this jello cup filled panda bear…

Every time we go to Kroger in Oakley, this baby cart is in the cart corral…

After we were done at the grocery, we got the Audi washed at Mike’s Carwash…

And while we were over in that part of town, we had to stop for our weekend edition of Biggby Coffee

We were so mad. We forgot to bring our reusable straws today…

But our drinks were delicious as always!

Laters, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

Taft’s was having a Father’s Day special…

A large short rib pizza, caesar salad, a loaf of cheesy bread, and a growler for just $45?

YES PLEASE! I like watching the world go by through Taft’s garage doors…

While we were waiting for our pizza to arrive at our table, we watched the monsoon that had just started dropping sheets of water out of nowhere…

And there it is! Our delicious pizza…

We just ate on the pizza. We took home the cheesy bread, caesar salad, our growler and about half of the pizza…

When we were getting ready to head out, I super long train started rolling by Taft’s too…

Trains are so cool. I could sit and watch the trains go by all day.

On our way home, we stopped at Second Place for a bourbon slush…

When we walked the dogs, the asphalt in the parking lot atop the hill at the end of our street was steaming…

Good evening from Northside…

And we ended our weekend by hanging out in our backyard…

It was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

When we got to the end of our street, it started sprinkling. And it continued to sprinkle on our entire walk around the block this evening…

The rain actually felt kind of refreshing. Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ
