Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran out to get some Christmas Eve Eve Biggby coffee

We ran around a little bit to do some last minute Christmas shopping…

We got some odds and ends stuff. And a bunch of new dog toys for Oscar & Mack. I also got Mack a new dog bed and Snoopy blanket to go in our studio office where he sleeps a lot. I snuck his new bed upstairs while he was outside…

I showed him his new dog bed and he pretty much spent the rest of the day lounging on it…

While I was hanging out in the studio office with Mack, I decided to check out day 23 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

I think he really likes his new dog bed…

Later, we had a NYPD Pizza hoagie party….

NYPD hoagies are so good. And their fries were even better than normal tonight.

We dragged Mack off his new dog bed to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After he got his treats, Mack was right back upstairs, crashed out on his new dog bed…

This evening, we finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix. It was a really good series. We hope they get around to making a third season someday. But it probably won’t be anytime soon.

And Mack was still sleeping on his new dog bed…

We hope everyone had a Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Oh. I also thought these drawings from @crazyheadcomics & @wearyourvoice were really beautiful…

It just reaffirms how blessed we are and how good we have it this Christmas Eve Eve.

Today was a beautiful day.

Good morning from Northside…

It was such a beautiful morning. Time for Legos…

Day ten of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We made delicious boiler sammiches for lunch today. Mine was Cajun chicken breast with American cheese on Hawaiian bread with Backyard BBQ Kettle Chips…

Both of us don’t have to work tomorrow. It took a bit longer to finish up my projects for the week but I finally got them wrapped up. And then we took the dogs on their walk around the block…

The sky was just so pretty all day today. And it was almost 60ยบ today. I guess that’s what happens when it’s not grey and overcast and the sun actually comes out to play.

Tonight, we watched some of the Thursday night football game as the Rams hammered the once great New England Patriots.

When we go upstairs for the night, Mack will come upstairs with us and hang out for a little bit. But then he’ll wander off to sleep downstairs in our second-floor studio office at night…

Most of the time he’ll come upstairs in the middle of the night or really early in the morning. During the day, he wanders off to sleep in our bedroom on the third-floor. He hangs out with us in the afternoon and evening and then he sleeps most of the night in the second-floor studio. We think he just likes sleeping undisturbed without us moving around and waking him up and stuff. He’s so good and doesn’t cause any mischief so we just let him sleep where he wants. But he’s an oddball. And that’s like we like him so much. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

Mackerel sky & Snoopy cookies.

There were some very pretty clouds this morning…

They created a very low ceiling over Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

I need to learn more about clouds. It would be neat to be able to say, “check out these mackerel sky altocumulus clouds we had over Cincinnati this morning.” I don’t want to be a weather person but meterology is pretty neat.

I put out the trash and recycling this evening and there was the moon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had broiler sammiches for dinner tonight. Mine was Cajun turkey and cheddar on Hawaiian bread…

And Genifer made more Snoopy cookies

Good night moon…

I had to work on my work projects this evening for meeting tomorrow. And the was the only part of today that was kind of a bummer. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿช๐ŸŒ™โค๏ธ

Hello October.

It’s pretty crazy to me that today is the first day of October…

For still being in the middle of a global pandemic, stuck at home and not really being able to do much of anything, this year certainly has flown right by. I would like my 2020 back, please. I think we should all get to take a mulligan for this year and get to try 2020 over again next year.

They weren’t working on our street this morning. So we got to go back up to the top of the hill at the end of our street and say…

Good morning from Northside!

This is what the street looked like in front of our house this morning…

But a little while later, they filled it in with asphalt…

And good evening from Northside…

We ordered hoagie sammiches from NYPD

And after we stuffed our faces full of delicious NYPD hoagie sammiches and french fries, we played ball in our backyard and we watched the beautiful sunset clouds….

It’s just really nuts that it’s already October. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Another good Saturday.

We love our new little side yard…

And we love our backyard fence…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester…

We had lunch at Dingle House

They had a peanut butter milk stout from Left Hand that was just out of this world…

Genifer ordered Mike’s pastrami on sour dough…

I had a half-order of their fish and chips…

While we out in West Chester, we visited Geri for a bit, gathered Oscar and Bear to finally bring them back home with us and then we headed back to Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

And this evening, we watched Minnesota United draw with Houston and Louisville City thump Memphis

It was another really good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Oven pizza hoagie party.

We were pretty lazy today…

Good morning from Northside…

We made a Home Run Inn oven pizza for lunch…

I think Home Run Inn makes on the best frozen pizzas around.

And it turned out to be a pretty nice day…

Good evening from Northside…

And we had an NYPD hoagie party for dinner. Again..

We’ve been all about the NYPD lately. We like it a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

Hello there, Pumpkin.

HAPPY LABOR DAY! We’ve had a really great long weekend so far…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran over to the grocery…

And it’s that time of year again. pumpkin spice everything…

And they didn’t have the bear OR the train in the international aisle…

And we had to get our coffee from Mad Llama

We didn’t get pumpkin spice anything. Genifer got a caramel latte and I got my beloved caramel java whip. Mad Llama’s coffees are so good.

Later, we started clearing all the ivy from our fence…

Our backyard fence is finally getting replaced this week! We’re so excited.

And once we cleared as much of the ivy as we could, it was time to reward ourselves with an NYPD Hoagie party

NYPD Hoagies are so delicious. And the cheese fries were really good too!

And good evening from Northside…

It was a pretty nice Monday to wrap up the long holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Crumb cake & NYPD hoagies.

It was hard to get back into the swing of things today. Genifer got me this delicious crumb cake from Napoli Cafe when we stopped for coffee in North Top Sail Beach as we were starting our trip back home…

I didn’t go into Napoli Cafe with Genifer. I stayed in the car with Oscar…

Look at all that crumb topping…

It was as much crumb topping as it was cake. And it was delicious. Really good. One of the inadvertent themes of our trip was crumb cakes and crumbles. Without trying, I ate three crumb cakes during our trip. I think this last one was my favorite. It made getting back to work this morning a little bit easier.

I must be out of practice and a little bit rusty. This morning, I completely forgot to take photos of the sky from the top of the hill at the end of our street. But I made sure to remember this evening…

So good evening from Northside. We need to make a trip to the grocery store. We don’t really have very much food in our house right now. At all. So this evening we had an NYPD hoagie sammich party

NYPD isn’t just for pizza parties. Their hoagie sammiches are really good as well. Genifer’s favorite is NYPD’s Italian. And my favorite is their chicken fajita with bacon crumbles added. We always add a family-sized order of fries. The good part of not having any food in the house is getting to go out to eat which makes it kind of feel like we’re still on vacation. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

The T must stand for Tuesday.

It’s Tuesday. Good morning from Northside…

Before work this morning, we ran over to Lowes so Genifer could get more paint for our living room. But they were out of the paint base to mix the color we needed. And that’s kind of a bummer. She was so looking forward to trying to finish the living room today. We’ll check back or try another Lowes later in the week. While we were out, we did get Mad Llama coffees. I’m in love with their Caramel Java Whips. It’s soft-serve ice cream with caramel sauce and coffee. And it is out of this world…

I also tried one of their sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sammiches this morning…

It was a terrific breakfast sammich. I will definitely be getting many more of these in the future. Today was very long. There was just too much stuff to try to get done in one day. It’s already been one of those weeks. And it’s only Tuesday…

Good evening from Northside…

We had BLTs again for dinner tonight. The T in BLTs must stand for Tuesday. Holy geez, I love BLTs with turkey bacon…

And Genifer made seasoned oven curly fries…

I put some turkey on my turkey bacon BLT to make it a turkey bacon club again…

I wonder how many days I could eat BLTs in a row before I get tired of them. I’d bet you it would be a lot. Hopefully, things start to calm down this week. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ

Just another Tuesday.

There really haven’t been many very pretty sunrises so far this summer. When I look out our window in the morning, the colors are pretty but there haven’t been any clouds. And the clouds are what make the sunrises beautiful, in my opinion.

Look at how pretty the sky was this morning from our third-floor bedroom window…

And one through the filters of Instagram

And when I checked back after taking a shower, the clouds started to go away…

And good morning from Northside…

I finished the last of our Cosmic Stars cereal from Meijer…

Now the next time we go to Kroger, I can get more Shining Stars.ย 

Oscar was just hanging out in the front bedroom while I was working today…

And we had sammiches from NYPD for dinner tonight…

NYPD has really good hoagie sammiches. They’re are much to look at, just hoagie rolls piled high with toppings. Genifer usually orders the Italian. And I usually go for the chicken fatija sammich. Like I said, they’re really good. Next time we have them, I’ll be sure to take a photo of them.

And I don’t know how I missed my good evening from Northside photo tonight. I bet it looked a lot like yesterdays photo. And that was pretty much our Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—“๏ธโค๏ธ
