A morning without power.

Good morning from Northside…

We lost power this morning after we got back from our walk. The power company said power was scheduled to return around 1pm. We ran out to get Skyline for a lunch a little bit before noon…

When we got home with our lunch, the power came back on. And it was Skyline time!

And then it was time to get to work.

Good evening from Northside…

There was really pretty light coming into the back of our house…

Today really made me really appreciate having electricity. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βš‘οΈπŸΎβ€οΈ

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

And… we’re done with work.

We walked down to watch the sunrise…

And good morning from Northside…

Today was day 22 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We powered through our last work day before Christmas. And finished up our projects for the week.

Then it was time to take the dogs on their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Stroganoff Beef Meatloaf with green beans…

And it was another really delicious dinner. Those little meatloaves were just out of this world. I love anything beef stroganoff. I think it’s my favorite gravy. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

We received a card in the mail from Skyline today…

During one of the Xavier basketball games a while back, I won a $15 gift card during their Skyline Chili virtual parachute drop on Twitter

And today, our gift card showed up in the mail…

Thanks, Xavier and Skyline! That’s pretty dang cool. We’re looking forward to having some Skyline very soon and cruising into the long holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ½οΈπŸ§§β€οΈ

And it’s a low-key Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at the grocery out in West Chester…

Ugh. Those don’t even really sound good. 😝 But they did have the panda AND train at this Kroger…

We stopped at Skyline for lunch to go…

We took lunch over to Geri’s to visit for a bit. And then it was back home…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a wonderful Sunday. The weekends always go by so fast. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚πŸŒ­πŸβ€οΈ

It’s Skyline Timehopping!

Four years ago, I was a third place winner in Skyline Chili’s Home Plate Sweepstakes 2016! I won this really sweet Skyline Reds ball cap and a $25 Skyline gift card!

And it’s been one of my favorite ball caps ever since. Thanks for all the really wonderful memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•βšΎοΈπŸπŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

Today was a good day.

We got coffee from Sidewinder this morning and they spelled my name with two D’s…

Grey gave us the afternoon off for Easter weekend. Thanks, Grey!

This afternoon, we ran over to Genifer’s office to pickup a laptop. And on the way home, we stopped to get Skyline carry-out for lunch…

Hello, delicious cheese coneys…

Ohmigosh. We haven’t had Skyline in forever! It was sooo good. And later this evening, we ran down the street to Northside Yacht Club

We picked up some Miller High Life’s and some of NSYC’s famous peanut tequila…

Cheers to the weekend! We wished we would have had the peanut butter tequila for last weekend’s Front Porch Pours. We just hung out, had some drinks and listened to music tonight. It was a good day. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ§€πŸŒ­πŸ»πŸŽΆπŸ€—β€οΈ

We survived another week of shelter-in-place. Four weeks down.

Happy National Chili Dog Day!

After I was done volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo, I walked about 1.2 miles from the zoo over to Skyline Chili in the Clifton Gaslight District for lunch. On my way, I walked by this great community garden…

And this City Barn…

And before I knew it, I was at Skyline in Clifton…

HAPPY NATIONAL CHILI DOG DAY TO ME! Yep. It’s an actual thing

Skyline is delicious! After my lunch, I hopped on the Metro 17 bus and came home.
πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

It’s Skyline time.

It was Skyline time for lunch today! YUM! πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

Happy National Chili Dog Day!

We stopped at Skyline in Clifton on the way home from work to get some delicious Skyline cheese coneys for dinner tonight to celebrate National Chili Dog Day

I wanted my cheese coneys to look like this when I got them home…

But instead, they looked like this.Β They looked kind of sad. But they still tasted delicious! So we’ll just say they looked as pretty as these.Β πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

It’s Skyline Time!

It was Skyline Time for lunch today…

Somewhere between point A and point B, I accumulated $75 worth of Skyline gift cards.
I guess there’s going to be a lot more Skyline time in my future!Β πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ
