Saturday, March 6th.

I’d never seen all The Hobbit movies. So tonight, we started watching the trilogy…

B1G TEN CHAMPIONS!

If you would have told me when the college basketball season started that Michigan was going to thump Michigan State in Crisler Center to clinch the B1G TEN Regular Season Championship, I would have thought it was just wishful thinking. It doesn’t get much better than that. But that’s exactly what happened…

BIG TEN REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS! GO BLUE! 😀🏀〽️🏆❤️

Tuesday, March 2nd.

We ordered El Taco Veloz for dinner tonight via Doordash…

It was really delicious stuff. And someone finally found their bunny

Michigan played host to Illinois tonight…

And Michigan got thumped. It was a terrible game. But it was a small bump in their season. 😀🌄🇲🇽🐰🏀〽️❤️

Superb Owl Sunday.

Happy Superb Owl Sunday!

We were up super early this morning, even before the sunrise…

Good morning from Northside…

And we were off to run over the the grocery…

We always go to the grocery early, but we wanted to get over extra early this morning. We thought it might start to get a bit nutty with people stocking up on supplies for The Big Game™…

It looked like Ice Bear was rescued from the claw machine…

He used to be right where the zebra is now. I hope he went to a good home…

Both the panda and the train were out of stick in the International Aisle…

And there were still a few balloons left but no owl balloons…

Just lots and lots of hearts…

As is tradition, we stopped for coffee after the grocery…

Here’s another photo of Genifer’s new desk. She moved it over in front of the window…

It looks really nice in there.

And good evening from Northside…

I was cheering for Tom Brady in The Big Game™…

And there you go. We had a whole bunch of chip and dippers while we watched the game. It was a pretty great Superb Bowl Sunday. 😀🌄☕️🦉🏈📺❤️

We got a little snow.

This morning, we took the dogs all the way around the block…

Good morning from Northside…

It started snowing this afternoon…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Chicken Thigh Shawarma Wild Rice Bowl with tzatziki sauce…

It was another really delicious meal. Chicken and rice bowls are terrific. And we love anything with tzatziki sauce. We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

A lot of my favorite basketball teams aren’t playing because of COVID-19. Just tonight, Wichita State, Michigan and Grizzlies all had games postponed…

Thank goodness they haven’t paused all the games and we could watch some other games tonight. 😀🌄☁️🌨️❄️🏀📺❤️

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

We both had the day off work today for the holiday. It was a cold and snowy day…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made cheesy buffalo chicken pasta with garlic bread for lunch…

Good evening from Northside…

I realized when we got to the stairs at the top of the hill at the end of our street that I had forgotten my little fisheye Moment lens

Today, we watched Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-0. And we watched the MLK Day NBA games especially the Grizzlies win over the Suns. I like the Griz. I think they have the best logo in the NBA. It was a very nice day off. And another very low-key, relaxing day. 😀🌄❄️🔥🐔⚽️🏀❤️

Fantasy football wrap-up.

I played fantasy football again this season…

36496598773_1944734904_o

I played four teams but I didn’t realize that all four of my teams of PPR (Points Per Reception). I’d never played PPR leagues before and it showed. Two of my four teams teams made the playoffs and my best finish was 3rd place…

My other teams finished fourth, fifth and seventh, all in eight team leagues. Is that bad? It’s not good. But I still think fantasy football is so much fun. It makes the football season really interesting and enjoyable, especially when you’re winning. Which I wasn’t. 😀🏈🏆❤️

On to fantasy basketball…

It’s been nice relaxing.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made lasagna for a late lunch today…

Lasagna is so dang good. And we haven’t had it in a quick minute. And I love anything that can be eaten with garlic bread.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched some football. And we watched the Mavs just destroy the Clippers

We were having a hard time getting into Hinderland so tonight we tried Bordertown. We couldn’t really get into that one either. Maybe we’ll have better luck trying to find a new series to watch tomorrow.

But it sure has been nice just relaxing at home. 😀🌄🍽️📺❤️

A very pretty Friday.

The sunrise was very pretty again this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We both had the day off work today. We ran over to Rookwood Commons this morning to do some Christmas shopping but first we stopped at Hyde Perk to get some coffees…

We stopped at Home Goods and TJ Maxx…

And it was time for day eleven of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Our new TV console arrived yesterday…

It has a terrific faux fireplace and powerful space heater…

We think it looks really nice and hopefully it’ll help keep our living nice and toasty warm this winter…

Other than that, it was a pretty low-key and relaxing day off.

And it was another very pretty evening as well…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we tried these Smoked Ahi Tuna Poke Bowls…

They were surprisingly good and very filling…

We were concerned that they would be fishy. But they weren’t at all. They really just tasted like delicious spicy soy sauce. They were really good. We’ll definitely be getting them again next time we go to the grocery.

The sunset was very pretty tonight as well…

None of my sports teams played again today…

So tonight, we started watching the series Black Spot on Netflix. It’s kinda odd but it’s been really interesting so far. 😀🌄🔥🍣📺❤️

A Wednesday NYPD Pizza party!

There were more altocumulcus clouds hovering over Northside this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And it was time for day nine of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The sun actually came out today…

And then we had the ultra rare Wednesday NYPD Pizza party

We ordered a large Station House supremium™ pizza…

And Nightsticks with extra cheese…

NYPD Pizza parties are so good. Especially on Wednesdays. They never happen on Wednesdays. And after we were done eating all our pizza, we headed upstairs…

We watched Michigan thump Toledo and Xavier thump Oklahoma. Both teams won by exactly 20 points. 😀🌄☁️🍕🐾📺🏀❤️
