Good morning from Northside.

There was a storm rolling into Northside this morning…

I could have stood there all morning and watched that storm pass through. It was really pretty. But unfortunately, we have stuff to do. Good morning from Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธโค๏ธ

Queen City Radio.

We love Queen City Radio. It’s quickly become one of our favorite OtR spots with their amazing Whip burgers, $3 High Life’s and $2 jello shots. It’s become our normal Thursday night place to stop after work. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ“ปโค๏ธ

FC|C Adidas x Parley.

I love the color navy. It’s one of my favorite colors if not my most favorite. I also love navy stuff. I’d say about a quarter of my wardrobe is made up of navy stuff or has at least has some navy on it. So imagine my delight when I got this email from FC Cincy touting these limited edition Adidas X Parley navy Earth Day jerseys

As soon as saw the email, I saved what I was working on, grabbed my wallet and headed down the FC Cincinnati Team Store on Fourth Street

And now I have a brand new navy FC|C Adidas x Parley jersey! ๐Ÿ˜€โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

 

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

Checking in on the WyzeCams. It’s bedtime and all’s quiet on our street. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ“นโค๏ธ

It’s a sign.

It looked like Cr-zy Monk Asian Eatery is almost open for business on Main Street in downtown Cincinnati…

I’ll have to try to check it out sometime really soon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ

Constructing Cincinnati.

It looks like they finished the support structure for the first floor of the building they are constructing across the street...

Good evening from Northside.

Here’s the original photo I took…

And here’s how it looked after I ran it through the ol’ Instragram filters…

Good evening from our backyard in Northside. Taken with Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken…

Ohmigosh. It’s so good. And we had Trader Joe’s Potstickers too…

It’s as good if not better than almost any takeout Chinese food we’ve had. It’s quickly become one of our very favorite meals. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ

Garter snake.

Look at this little garter snake we saw on our dog walk this evening…

I was really happy that our dogs didn’t notice it. Mack eats bees in our backyard. So I could only imagine what they would have done to this poor little snake. Funny enough, we saw a little garter snake like this in our backyard about a week ago. All this time in Northside and we’ve never seen a snake. And then we see two in a little over a week.

Fantasy basketball 2019.

I played NBA fantasy basketball again this year. I can’t find any mention of last season on our blog but I’m pretty sure I played fantasy basketball last season. But anyway. I played five teams this season. My Bouncy Balls went 17-3 during the regular season…

They made the playoff winners bracket as the two seed…

And in the championship matchup, I finally defeated an undefeated team…

My team Fire Balls were the three seed in the playoffs but lost by just eight points in the championship. Eight…

My Shot Clock Violators went undefeated through the 20-game regular season…

And they continued their unbeaten run in the first round of the playoffs…

And they claimed their championship by having a perfect season…

In every fantasy season, I always do an auto draft team. My Team Action Auto Draft team made the championship but got thumped in the final round…

My fifth team was called Sneaker Heads. They went 10-10 on the season but somehow entered the playoffs as the two seed. Figure that out. They lost in the first round of the playoffs but finished third. Fantasy basketball is pretty dang fun. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ
