I’m still pretty popular.

Apparently, my photos on Google Maps are still pretty popular

It’s pretty nice to still be popular. 😀🗺📷❤

Hello praying mantis.

I saw another praying mantis today. This one was just hanging out at work…

That’s the second praying mantis we’ve seen recently. 😀🦗❤️

A new personal better than best.

Last week on Monday, I had a personal best Monday for points accumulated in one day on my Swarm. And not surprisingly, I ended up going on to set a new personal best for points in a week on my Swarm. My previous personal best was 3211 points

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Running some errands on the Westside.

We ran some errands over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. Genifer got a new Fitbit Versa from Best Buy. We stopped to say hi to Genifer’s brother’s family. And we stopped at Aldi for some groceries…

It’s the first time I’ve ever been to an Aldi. I was kind of surprised how much good stuff they had at Aldi. We picked up a few things for the week including this oven pizza…

For just an oven pizza, it was really good. Who knew Aldi had such good stuff? 😀🍕❤️

Seen and noted.

We always chuckle at this flower pot family whenever we head over to the Westside…

Every time was pass it, it’s always different. But it’s always equally elaborate. We always wonder what the backstory is and how it all got started. No matter what the story is, it always entertains us. And gives us a good chuckle as we shake our heads as drive by. Oh, the things people do to entertain themselves. 😀🌻❤️

Happy birthday, Higher Gravity!

When we were out running around yesterday, I stopped at Kroger a got a little sheet cake because today is Higher Gravity’s one-year anniversary! Happy birthday, HG!

It seems like just yesterday that we were checking out Higher Gravity for the very first time. Over the last year, Higher Gravity has become one of our top two favorite places to hang out in Northside. (The other one is Second Place.) HG always has interesting and delicious beers on tap and in stock. We’ve tried a bunch of great beers there. And we’ve also made a bunch of great friends there on the last year. Cheer, guys! Here’s to many more years to come!

We love Higher Gravity! 😀🍺❤️

Oh, and we also added to our crowler collection to bring with us up to Michigan…


Look up in the sky.

There were some amazing clouds while we were walking the dogs this evening…


Good morning and good evening from Northside.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

The morning photo was Taken with Instagram. 😀🌄❤️

Mr. Fix-It.

The lock on our back door broke this evening. I went to let the dogs out the back door into the yard and the little knob came right off in my hand…

We had to use needle-nosed pliers to get the back door open. Thankfully, we could also use the needle-nosed pliers to get the door to latch again after they came back inside.

UPDATE: I managed to find the exact same lock at Wood’s Hardware downtown and replace the lock and add a deadbolt to our back door. It was surprisingly not that difficult at all. This is now the third lock I’ve replaced in our house. A while back the deadbolt on our front door broke after unlocking it to get into our house when we were coming home one evening. And I replaced that lock with little difficulty as well. I’m becoming quite the master locksmith. Haha. 😀🔐❤️

1400 in a single day.

I had a 1400+ point Monday on my Swarm. That’s never happened to me before…

I remember when there was a time when I was so thrilled to break 1000 points for the week on Foursquare before it morphed into Swarm. I would have been so happy with 1400 points for an entire week. And it wasn’t too long ago that my best for a week was 1985 point on Swarm. Now to be able to tally over 1400 points in a single day is pretty remarkable. Kind of unbelievable. Swarm is pretty silly but I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️
