A great start to a three-day weekend.

We both had the day off work today. I could really get used to four-day work weeks. Genifer doesn’t work on Fridays and I used my very last vacation day of 2020…

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 18 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The lead of the eCommerce group at work dropped off a Christmas gift…

It was pretty amazing that she did this. It’s very appreciated. And the roll of toilet paper is hilarious.

Later, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch. As we were walking down Hamilton Avenue, we noticed a new hair salon has already gone into the location where Helltown Bazaar Workshop used to be…

Surprisingly, Django Western Taco just closed up shop and no longer has a presence in Northside…

And that’s a bummer. We really liked Django a lot. But whatever, it was time for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheeses with tomatoes…

I ordered my favorite chicken tender sammich…

Blue Jay is always so good. It’s nothing super fancy. It’s always just solid. We never had anything but terrific meals at Blue Jay. Afterward, we stopped at Shake It Records

It’s really hard for me to find new and interesting music that I like. I really like reggae. And I like usually music. I was thumbing through the global music vinyl. And found some interesting stuff to check out…

I’m going to check these out on iTunes or Amazon Music and then come back for the ones I like. At some point, I’d like to upgrade our turntable and get some little speakers in our living room as well…

Hi Oscar…

We took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

I had a leftover taco for a dinner snack…

Genifer made this sugar cookie mix..

I thought the cookies were pretty good but Genifer didn’t care for them. They could definitely use some icing. The dogs always go outside one last time before we go upstairs…

Tonight was the final episode of season two of The Mandalorian,..

Now that all the episodes are avialable, we could finally binge-watch the season. And it was amazing! That show is just wow. I wish we could binge watch it every single day. I wish they would make an infinite amount of Star Wars series with all sorts of storylines from around the Star Wars universe. That would be amazing.

In my Timehop today, we ate at Django when they were still in Northside…

And Oscar is a very handsome little guy…

It was a great start to our three-day weekend. 😀🌄❤️

Lunch at Blue Jay.

We both stayed home from work today but we did walk to Blue Jay for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheese with tomatoes again. And I ordered the chicken finger sammich again with cheese. That sammich is so dang good…

And wouldn’t you know it, just as soon as we were done eating it started pouring down rain outside. So we waited for it to stop raining in Shake It Records…

It was a great lunch. And it was good to recharge a bit. 😀🐔❤️

Saturday morning in Northside.

This morning we went to Blue Jay for an early lunch…

You can’t see the Blue Jay sign through the trees…

Genifer ordered a couple of Blue Jay chili cheese sammiches and fries…

Basically, chili cheese dogs without the dogs. And I ordered the Northsider Omelet…

It’s a three-egg omelet smothered in Blue Jay’s Cincinnati-style chili with onions, beans, topped with cheddar cheese and served with toast…

It’s basically a Cincinnati five-way omelet and it was so good. We love Blue Jay…

Afterwards, we stopped next door at Shake It Records to do some record shopping…

We still don’t have a record player. We hope to remedy that very soon. But in addition to all sorts of records, they also have some really great greeting cards…

It was another great Saturday morning in Northside. Taken with my Polaroid CUBE+. 😀🐦❤️

Northside Saturday.

This afternoon we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch…

We tried their cheese coneys and chili cheese sammiches and they were awesome!

After lunch, we were headed off to the grand opening of favorite coffee shop, Sidewinder’s brand new coffee roastery…

But first, we stopped in Shake It Records…

Seriously, we need to get a record player…

They had so many good records that I would have bought today if we had a record player. Walking down Hamilton Avenue right next to Hoffner Park, it looks like a new smoothie and juice bar is going in…

We made it all the way down Spring Grove to Sidewinder’s new coffee roastery…

Their new coffee roaster…

There was some serious roasting going on in here…

Original artworks by very talented artist and Sidewinder barista, Amy Poliner…

They’re going to need some more coffee beans…

We had a coffee drink and hung out for a little while and learned about the process of roasting coffee beans. It’s a lot more complicated than I thought it would be…

From there we stopped at Second Place to have a bourbon slushie and kill a little bit of time while we waited for our friend’s backyard birthday party to start…

W estayed at the backyard birthday party until it got too dark to see anymore in the backyard. And then we headed home. It was a really fun day in Northside. 😀❤️

Breakfast at Blue Jay.

We were supposed to get a big snow storm today. I heard up to 5 inches of the cold white stuff. Before the snowpocalypse, we headed to Blue Jay for breakfast…

I had pancakes with scrambled eggs and sausage with toast. It was so good. And I almost finished everything. But the real standouts were the biscuits and sausage gravy that Genifer ordered. Wow! They were incredible.Next time, I’m either getting those or I’m getting the Northsider Omelet topped with their homemade Cincinnati chili! When we were heading home, we could help but notice this Elvis lamp next door in the window of Shake It Records

And despite it snowing huge snowflakes, we really didn’t get very much snow on the ground. Five inches, pfffft. 😀🥞❤️
