Another overcast Monday.

It was another grey and overcast Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We have three new HelloFresh meals for our dinners this week. Our first meal was Triple Mushroom Truffle Gnocchi with with garlicky Panko and Parmesan…

I don’t think I’ve ever had gnocchi before. It was delicious! And anything with a mushroom sauce has always been one of my favorites.

We made it through another overcast Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈ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

Coffee. Inside?!

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Mad Llama to get coffee…

And today, we could actually go back inside to get our coffees…

It was pretty exciting to be able to get coffee from inside Mad Llama again…

It’s the little things.

It was looking very dark off in the direction of home…

When it got home, it started pouring…

Once it was done raining, we set our new little fire pit out in our backyard…

We had one HelloFresh meal left for this week. So we ate Meatball with Bulgogi Sauce and roasted carrots, ginger rice and sriracha crema for an early dinner…

It was another delicious meal. There hasn’t been a bad meal yet. They’ve all been really good. We can’t wait to try our meals next week.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched the Copa America final…

It was pretty tremendous to see Messi finally lift his trophy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβš½β€οΈ

Friday nights are for our backyard.

It’s Friday! We made it through another week!

Good morning from Northside…

Both dogs were laying in our studio-office while I was working today. Mack was on the dog bed and Oscar was laying in Mack’s crate…

We reorganized our back patio and moved our chairs around…

And Genifer found this terrific green rug for our patio…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out in our backyard this evening and listened to musics…

We love hanging out in our backyard on Friday nights. It’s a terrific way to wind down the work week and get the weekend off to a good start! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎβ€οΈ

A special delivery.

Good morning from Northside…

We heard a delivery truck coming down our street and checked our street-level WyzeCam

We had a special delivery today…

Jeannette ordered a bunch of beers and had them sent to our house for their visit next weekend. We can’t wait to see what she ordered. Special deliveries are fun.

Our second HelloFresh meal this week was One-Pan Bahn Mi Style Chicken Tacos with pickled cucumber & srircha mayo…

Geez. These dinners are just incredible.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we watched more Game of Thrones. It was a pretty good Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

It was a really pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon the sky started getting kind of dark…

We started another week of HelloFresh meals. Our first meal this week Kung Pao Chicken with sweet Szechuan sauce with peanuts & jasmine rice…

It was another really delicious dinner. We like the HelloFresh meals a lot. It rained while we were eating but it looked like it stopped long enough to make it around the block…

We had a really good Wednesday. We started watching Game of Thrones on HBO Max. (Welcome to the party, pal!) And now we can see what all the buzz what about now. That show is craaaazy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ₯‘🌧️❀️

In my Timehop were these pictures of Svensk…

She loved sitting in the window in our apartment and watching the world go by…

We miss the kitty.

Just a low-key Monday.

We both had today off work…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I always like to check out the different balloons…

And then it was time for coffee…

Later, we had sausages and pasta salad for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

We got some NYPD calzones for dinner…

It had been a minute since we had NYPD calzones. They were so good. We both ate our entire calzone. And then we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

It was a pretty nice, very low-key Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽˆπŸŒ­πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

And back to Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

Instead of the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade, this year there were Fourth of July decoration destinations…

And one of neighbors at the end of our street was a decoration destination…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we walked back down to Gulow Street

It was so good yesterday that we wanted to try more of items off their menu. Today, we both ordered their burger with chips…

Gulow Street’s burger were amazing. Everything we’ve had at Gulow Street has been so good that we ordered a couple more items to go…

We really like Gulow Street.

When we got home, we hung out in our backyard for a bit…

Later, we ate our Gulow Street takeaway…

Sesame noodles…

And the ham & butter sammich…

Both we just terrific.

And four years ago, we still had grass in our backyard…

What a great Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ”β€οΈ

Over on Gulow Street.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s again this morning…

We stopped for coffee at Dunkin…

And then we got to work in our backyard…

We had many, many bags of pea gravel to dump…

Three hours later…

We got cleaned up and headed to over to check out a new restaurant that just opened up in Northside called Gulow Street

Genifer ordered Sesame Noodles…

And I ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese…

The food at Gulow Street is sooo good. We can’t wait to come back to try more of their menu.

We were inspired by their decor. We’re going to start keeping at eye out for random, inexpensive works of art to hang in our dining room…

It’s always fun when new places open in your neighborhood. Especially when they’re as good as Gulow Street…

We can’t wait for our next visit to try a couple of those sammiches.

On our way home, we stopped at Northside Tavern for a drink…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a great start to the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸœπŸ»πŸ–ΌοΈβ€οΈ

Happy 7-1!

Today is July 1st! Happy 7-1 to all that celebrate…

It was another rainy morning…

On our walk this morning, we only made it to the stop sign at end of street…

But when we went on our walk this evening, the sun was out…

Weather. Go figure.

Good evening from Northside…

We haven’t seen very many snails on our walks so far this year…

Our third and final HelloFresh dinner of the week was Pecan & Walnut Crusted Chicken with BBQ-spiced sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple…

Have we said that we really like the HelloFresh meals?

When we got upstairs, it started pouring again…

And now we have a long four-day holiday weekend…
