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…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Dropping off or picking up?

Good morning from Northside…

We saw a couple of Northside sidewalk snails on our walk this morning…

We’ve been working on some spring cleaning and gathering things that we didn’t use anymore to donate…

We gathered a bunch of stuff…

On the way home, we stopped at Flamingo Haven Antique Mall…

Because we just dropped off a bunch of junk, why not replace it with other junk?

We didn’t get anything but we fun wandering around and looking at all the stuff…

And good evening from Northside…

It was another pretty good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒβ˜•οΈπŸ›οΈβ€οΈ

Ugh, Mondays.

It’s another Monday. It looks like this is going to be another super busy week at work.

Good morning from Northside…

We saw this little snail shell on the sidewalk. It was right in the middle of the sidewalk…

When I picked it up to move it, I discover it was empty. I carried it home. And placed it on our little decorative rock next to our shrubbery in our rock garden.

We were both busy at work today. I don’t think this week is going to be a lot of fun.

For dinner tonight, we had the tortilla crusted BBQ chicken with cheesy potatoes and corn Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kit again

It was another really delicious dinner. And it was every bit as good the second time around. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsΒ a lot.

Good evening from Northside…

Oscar really likes hanging out under the sofa in our master bedroom…

But he doesn’t go all the way under the sofa. In fact, most of him usually isn’t under the sofa at all…

He’s pretty silly. But you should really hide from Monday before it starts not after you’ve made it through the whole day.

Happy Monday for Northside. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

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…Β 

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. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

It was another grey and rainy morning in Northside…

We saw two more Northside sidewalk snails on our morning dog walk but they weren’t being very sociable…

And we saw this one who was out and about and being very photogenic…

Snails are pretty neat. Good morning from Northside.πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸŒβ€οΈ

Greetings from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. It looked like it was going to be overcast again…

We saw another Northside sidewalk snail on our dog walk this morning…

But Mack sniffed it and probably scared the heck out of the snail because it pulled itself inside its shell and did not want to come back out. A lot of times if you wait a couple minutes, they’ll slowly come back out of their shell. But not this one.

We walked to Sidewinder Coffee this morning to get some beverages…

I got an iced hot chocolate which is pretty much chocolate milk over ice. And Genifer had a lavender and vanilla iced latte with oat milk…

On our way home, we stopped to watch the machines on Pullan Avenue…

They’re replacing the water mains on all the streets on our side of Northside.

We noticed that Oscar hid one of the new Nylabones under the pillows on the sofa so Mack couldn’t find it. He’s very possessive when it comes to his toys…

Genifer made Chicken Ramen Stir-Fry for dinner…

It was delicious. I pretty much like anything with ramen and an Asian flair. She always finds the best recipes for dinners.

And finally, good evening from Northside…

Even though it ended up being overcast all day, it was still pretty good day. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

It’s the little things.

We saw another Northside sidewalk snail on our dog walk this morning…

And we saw these little mushrooms…

It’s been very wet in Northside lately. But I love little discoveries like this. πŸ˜€πŸŒπŸ„β€οΈ

Another Northside sidewalk snail.

We saw another Northside sidewalk snail on our dog walk this morning…

Discovering little sidewalk snails on our morning dog walks are one of the best parts spring and summer in Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒβ€οΈ

Northside sidewalk snail.

We saw our first Northside sidewalk snail of the season this morning…

Snails are so neat. I can’t wait until we start seeing more on our walks in the morning.
πŸ˜€πŸŒβ€οΈ

Another Northside sidewalk snail.

We saw another Northside sidewalk snail this morning…

We only see snails when we walk the dogs in the morning. It must get too hot for them to be out later in the day. πŸ˜€πŸŒβ€οΈ
