Happy Memorial Day!

Today was Memorial Day…

Thank you to all the brave men & women who protect and serve our great country…

We got up early this morning to run over to the grocery…

And we got coffee…

We took the dogs on their morning walk…

Good morning from Northside…

We trimmed our front yard grass…

Geri came over for lunch. And Genifer made Skillet Pineapple BBQ Chicken

It was delicious. She always finds the best recipes to make. And there was Carvel’s original ice cream cake…

We hung out in our backyard…

Good evening from Northside…

We have some more blooms in our front yard…

It was so pretty today, we hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a very nice Memorial Day and a wonderful long holiday weekend.

The start of a long weekend.

Today was the start of a long, four-day holiday weekend…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

We got Mad Llama coffee…

We also stopped at Home Goods…

And we got Potbelly for lunch…

Ohmigosh. Potbelly is so good…

I put my new little stool in our studio office…

We spread some more pea gravel on our side yard…

It started sprinkling on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

And it really started raining just as soon as we got home…

Whenever it really rains, there’s always a waterfall cascading from the gutters and down off the side of the neighbors house…

Somehow the water always seems to drain pretty quickly. But it doesn’t really cause us any problems. I’ve just never seen a gutter waterfall like that.

Right now, Oscar’s favorite toy is his hedgehog…

He’ll hide it and then forget where it’s been hidden…

And then he gets so excited when he finds it again…

We dodged the raindrops and went out in the backyard for potty breaks…

We watched Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse on Amazon Video. It was pretty good. And we finished Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix. For a super hero series, it was the slowest burning show I think I’ve ever seen. It was ten episodes of nothing but back story and character development. I bet the second season would have been pretty good if it hadn’t already been cancelled.

And that was our Friday. It was a pretty good one. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Pandas but no Ice Bear.

Good morning from Northside…

Ice Bear must have been rescued from the claw machine…

The pandas and the trains were back in stock…

And there were these pandas too…

Good evening from Northside…

And there was a really, big almost full moon tonight…

It was another really nice Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿปโ€โ„๏ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŒ”โค๏ธ

Trader’s World & Two Cities Pizza Co.

It was grey and rainy Saturday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we drove up north to Trader’s World

We were looking for some planters or a little stone bench for our side yard…

There wasn’t any of what we were looking for. But it you were looking for FunkoPops, you were definitely in the right place…

And hot sauce. They also had hot sauce…

It was a very odd place…

We didn’t find anything at Trader’s World. It was kind of a bust.

On our way back to Cincinnati, we stopped to try Two Cities Pizza Co. in Mason…

Two Cities has both New York style and Chicago style deep dish pizzas…

We were so hungry. We started salads…

Two Cities makes their own ranch dressing…

We ordered both a Chicago style deep dish AND a New York style pizza…

Both pizzas were delicious. Genifer liked the New York style best…

I liked the Chicago style deep dish best…

And because it was our first visit, they brought us little warm powdered donuts…

The restrooms were like New York subway cars…

What a terrific place with delicious, delicious pizzas!

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we had leftover pizza because we had a bunch…

Sunday, March 7th.

The dogs found a little patch of sunlight in our front bedroom…

Michigan lost to Sparty to end their championship regular season. The Wolverines first game of the Big Ten Tournament will be on Friday at 11:30am.

Around 10pm, we were watching the NBA All-Star Game on TNT and our lost our power. Apparently, all of Northside lost power…

Genifer got a text from the power company that said a car hit something that knocked out power to the entire neighborhood. I woke up around 1am and thankfully, our power was back on. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ”ฆโค๏ธ

The Hi-Mark hits the mark.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery…

And we stopped for Saturday morning coffee…

This afternoon we ventured over to the East End of Cincinnati…

We met our friends Ben and Mehwish at The Hi-Mark

We had so much fun getting to hang out for a bit…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a very fun Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿปโ€โ„๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโ™ฅ๏ธ

Ohhh… Epic tacos!

There were still snow flurries this morning…

And it was still cold and grey…

Good morning from Northside…

We ventured out to try something new this afternoon, Agave & Rye in Rookwood…

We started with some chips and guacamole…

Genifer loves guacamole…

And it was really good at Agave & Rye. We also started with the elotte…

And we each had an epic taco. Genifer had The Buddha: teriyaki 5-spice tofu, sticky rice, baby corn, water chestnuts, cilantro, green onion, carrots, red bell pepper, Shiitake mushrooms, crispy wontons, sweet thai chili sauce…

I love ground beef tacos. And they’re kind of hard to find out. Agave & Rye had two on their menu. So this time I ordered The Cousin of Vinnie: seasoned ground beef, tomato-vodka sauce, mac n cheese, white cheddar, tobacco onions and queso cushion in between the two taco shells…

Next time, I’ll try the other ground beef taco. Their tacos were amazing and huge. And they had a bunch of interesting sounding tacos on their menu.

Everything we ordered was delicious…

Agave & Rye had a whole bunch of arcade game that would have been fun to play…

But we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and I didn’t want to touch anything…

Agave & Rye was incredible. Everything was delicious. Their tacos were huuuuge. And we left so stuffed. I think we just found our new favorite taco shop now that Django Western Taco has moved out of Northside.

When we got home, we took the dogs out around the block…

And it was still cold…

Good evening from Northside…

We ended up taking a nap. And later, we watched the NFL playoff games…

I was happy to see Tom Brady win. I was sad to see Drew Brees lose. And I thought the refs jobbed the Browns. How did they miss this helmet-to-helmet hit? Most likely, it cost the Browns a touchdown and they would end up losing by 5 points. Next weekend, I’ll be cheering for Brady and the Bills. Because nothing would be worse than a State Farm Superb Owl with Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. I don’t really care for either of them very much.

But anyway, we had a really great day with some epic tacos! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

This morning, there were some pretty little grey clouds above the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

It was really pretty this morning but it got kind of grey by the evening…

And good evening from Northside…

Later this evening, we ran Oscar and Bear out West Chester to stay with Geri for the weekend. She is going to watch two of our guy’s while we go up to Michigan to visit my parents. On our way back to Northside, we stopped at Walgreens to get a few things for our trip…

When we got home, we packed up some stuff to take with us on our adventure up north tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

A morning trip to Trade Joe’s.

Good morning from Northside…

We ventured out to Trader Joe’s this morning before work, and on the way across town the sunrise sky was so beautiful…

It’s been a minute since we’ve been to Trader Joe’s…

And Mad Llama is right around the corner from Trader Joe’s (kind of)…

When we got home, we finished up our work week before having Trader Joe’s delicious Mandarin Orange Chicken for dinner…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we all crashed out…

It was another long week. Thank goodness it’s Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜ 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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿโค๏ธ
