We made it through another week!

Good morning from Northside…

I love these types of clouds. They’re so pretty…

After we walked the dogs this morning, we ran over to Kroger. I’m really happy that they finally made wearing a mask mandatory in public…ย 

We stocked up on Shining Stars

Today, Kroger had both the bear and the train in the international aisle…

Kroger’s been having a balloon display by the vegetables recently…

The cutest display was with the condiment balloons or the Cinco de Mayo balloons.

After we got our groceries from Kroger, we ran into Meijer to look for another one of the Venus in-store displays I designed. And there it was…

This display looked really great as well. And then we stopped at Mad Llama for coffee…

When we got home, I had a big bowl of Shining Stars with my Mad Llama Java Whip…

After work. we had delicious BLTs for dinner…

I really love BLTs. When we took the dogs for their evening walk, the skies looked kinda ominous and threatening…

Thankfully, it seemed like those dark clouds had passed us…

The ice cream man drove by…

Of course, we didn’t have any money on us. Because we were just walking the dogs.

Good evening from Northside…

It was starting to look threatening again. But when we were walking down the steps, the sun came back out. At the bottom of the steps, we saw this Northside sidewalk snail but it was hiding inside its shell right in the middle of the sidewalk…

I picked it up and moved it over so it wasn’t right in the middle of the sidewalk…

Those are some really grey clouds. I’m happy we made it through another work week.

This evening we watched more of Hanna Season 2 on Amazon Prime. 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

Our Friday morning.

Good morning from Northside…

Before I started work this morning, we ran to Kroger to get some groceries…

Kroger had restocked their Shining Stars

I noticed some more oddities while we were grocery shopping…

And then we went to Biggby for coffee…

And today we had a Biggby coupon for half off their Bragel breakfast sammiches…

What a great way to start a Friday before getting to work. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

At least there were Shiny Stars.

We ran to the grocery again before work this morning…

We’ve found that going to the grocery early in the morning is the best time for us to go. And another surprising outage at the grocery were the bags of store brand cereal…

Thankfully, they still had lots of bags of Shiny Stars still. Shiny Stars are my favorite…

Did I mention I really like Shiny Stars? It’s my favorite cereal. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฃ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ

Grocery shopping during a pandemic.

Grey Midwest was going to have a trial run of the entire office worked from home next Tuesday. But yesterday afternoon, they decided to move that trial up to today.

This morning, we got up extra early and went to the grocery before I got down to some work business. I was really interested in seeing how picked over the store was going to be. I heard stories about people buying up all the toilet paper and paper towels, which is weird to me because COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, not a gastrointestinal one. And we found that was actually the case at the Kroger we shop at the most. There wasn’t much toilet paper or paper towel to be found…

There also wasn’t very much cold medicine left…

The hand soaps were pretty picked over…

As was the milk…

And the bread…

And the cans of soup…

But also the frozen pizzas…

And the hot dogs?

Thankfully, there were still plenty of Shining Stars…

And I thought this bear was pretty adorable…

The check-out lines were long but not terrible…

This couple’s carts were pretty ridiculous when you really stop and look at them…

They must have been planning on not leaving their house for the next couple of years.

I thought it was pretty ironic that there were already strategically placed “Get well soon” balloons at the check-out aisles…

So that was what shopping will be like for a while in the new world we find ourselves in during this pandemic. People lose their minds a bit. We just got our normal groceries.

And then we got Biggby Coffee and headed home with our groceries…

I needed to start working home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›’๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Shining Stars & BDubs.

This morning we went to the grocery store. I don’t ever really get to go the grocery all that much. It was just a pretty normal trip to the store. But look at how cute this space bear was…

Those Shining Stars came home with us. We also noticed these moonshine sausages…

I wonder wat those are like. And there were these completely plant-based sausages that I want to try once it’s time to slow down and grill again

I wonder if they’re good. Speaking of good after the grocery, we stopped at BDubs. It was some of the best BDubs that I’ve had in quite a while. Genifer ordered boneless wings and fries…

We shared some mini corn dogs. I had the crispy BBQ chicken sammich…

And I got a free snack-sized wing for my birthday through their app…

It was really good stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
