Some Saturday errands.

We ran some errands late this morning into the early afternoon. We ran over to the Westside to sign our taxes and get those in the mail. We’re happy to report that we’re looking forward to a pretty nice return from the federal but we owed a little to the state. So we’re happy that taxes are done for another year. From there, we ran over to Tire Discounters on North Bend Road. We’ve been having a slow leak in our passenger rear tire. It’s never gone completely flat because we kept putting air in it. But then a few days later the tire pressure warning light would come back on. While we were waiting for our tire to be fixed, we spied a Skyline down the street. So instead of waiting in the tire waiting room, we walked down the road and had lunch at Skyline! Genifer and I haven’t had Skyline together in forever…

While we were at Skyline, Genifer found this sticker in Swarm that we didn’t know existed. And it’s funny because well, it’s named Oscar…

Mmmm, cheese coneys…

The tire place said your rear tires had near bald spots on them so we had the rear tires replaced. So now we have four brand new tires on our car and we should be good on the whole tire thing for a while again…

Errands aren’t that much fun. Buying new tires isn’t that much fun either. But the Skyline was outstanding. 😀🧀🌭❤️

Another trip to Ikea.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to visit Ikea again

We wanted to get another bookshelf and a proper desk chair for our office. We got those and we also got a little bookshelf for our living room. And we picked up some other odds and ends. Afterwards, we had lunch with Genifer’s mom at BDubs. Then we came home and put our new stuff together. Here’s our new shelf in the office…

Our office is actually starting to become pretty functional. So functional, we hung out in the office for the rest of the evening. 😀🇸🇪❤️

Our Thanksgiving.

This afternoon we went over to Genifer’s mom’s new house for Thanksgiving dinner…

I ate one of the turkey wings. It was like a giant chicken wing only with turkey! We hope everyone had a very thankful and delicious Thanksgiving! I know we did. It was a great day filled with wonderful food and family. 😀🦃❤️

Lunch in West Chester.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to see Genifer’s mom’s new house. It’s super nice and really big with a big yard and all very West Chester. I didn’t take any photos because I’m really super weird about taking photos of other people’s stuff and posting it online. It’s not my thing. I just don’t do it. After we hung out at Geri’s new house for a bit, got the grand tour and the lay of the land, we all went to Dingle House in West Chester for lunch where I had this monster of a bacon burger…

The last time I talked to my parents, they were telling me about their post-Halloween All Stouts Day adventures at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. And specifically, they were telling me about Bell’s Arabicadabra Coffee Milk Stout. And look what I found at Dingle House…

Unfortunately, it wasn’t actually on tap. Even though we were told a couple of times that the draught beer was completely current and just updated that morning. And that’s a bummer. But we’ll be out there to visit a lot of more. So we’ll keep checking back.

Personally, I think the vast suburbia that is West Chester gets a bad wrap. On our way to Geri’s house, we passed a bunch of places I wouldn’t mind checking out in the future trips out to the ‘burbs. And I could see the draw of living there. Big home, big yard, white picket fence, two-car garage and all that. It’s not for everyone. We like our more urban, walkable little neighborhood. But different strokes for different folks. And I look forward to our trips out West Chester to visit. 😀🏡🍔🍺❤️

Summer Hours: Rusty Bucket

Today’s Summer Hours were some rainy ones…

Genifer had a doctor’s appointment in Hyde Park and then we planned to go to Island Frydays in Corryville but with all the rain we decided just to get some lunch at Rusty Bucket in Rookwood instead…

We’ll go to Island Frydays on the next Summer Hours when it isn’t pouring down rain.

Miami Township Summer Concert Series: Blues, Brews, & BBQ

This evening we drove out to meet Cleve, Alyssa and Geri at the beautiful and very expansive Miami Riverview Park all the way out in Loveland to check out the first Miami Township Summer Concert Series of the summer: Brews, Blues & BBQ

U-Lucky Dawg, Pickles & Bones BBQ and Loveland Dairy Whip were all at the park dishing up delicious goodness…

We decided to start with some Pickles & Bones BBQ…

We got the brisket and smoked turkey with mac&cheese and spicy baked beans…

Delicious stuff! The plan was to get something from each of the three food trucks but we were stuffed after finishing the BBQ…

And we listened to The Fabulous Blue Brothers Band…

They were pretty fun a pretty fun band!

It was a really fun and something completely different on a Sunday evening. 🙂

Monday afternoon in suburbia.

We drove out to Ikea in West Chester to pick up a few new things for our house…

After any trip to Ikea, we always stop at Dingle House for lunch….

It was a really productive afternoon out in the ‘burbs. 🙂

Christmas eve.

We ran around this morning for some last-minute Christmas odds and ends this morning, and it was 55º in downtown Cincinnati… On Christmas Eve…

And then this evening, we headed out to Liberty Township for some Christmas Eve festivities with Cleve and Alyssa. I completely forgot to take a photo of their really pretty Christmas Tree. But I did take a photo of the end of their street which had a lot of homes that went a little nuts with the Christmas lights…

Merry Christmas Eve! 🙂
