Sunday funday.

We ran over to the grocery store early this morning even before we walked the dogs…

And then we stopped for Biggby Coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from morning…

We headed down to The Banks to go to our fourth Reds baseball game of the season…

We got a DORA drink before heading into the ballpark…

Welcome to the Great American Ball park…

Our tickets were in our favorite section of the ballpark, The Fioptics District…

Apparently, Fountain Square has a new stage…

We walked up to Queen City Radio in OtR to see if they had their amazing Whip burgers. They did not. So we hopped in an Uber and stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern…

And then we came home to hang out in our backyard for a bit with our new little lights…

And while we were sitting out on our patio, we watched the Grizzlies win game one of their first round best of seven against the Utah Jazz.

It was a terrific Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βšΎοΈπŸΊπŸ’‘β€οΈ

It’s starting to look better.

Today got off to kind of an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran back over to Lowe’s this morning…

And we stopped at Mad Llama for coffee and bagels…

And then we did some work in our yard. We finally finished staining our fence…

We planted these marigolds…

We hung our wind chimes…

We got a couple of plants for our hanging baskets…

We forgot to get more pea gravel for our side yard. But we got another planter…

Two more little planters…

And planted plants in them…

But we ran out of potting soil before we could get to our Yucca…

We planted more marigolds…

We moved our little ground coverings from the side yard to the front yard…

Hopefully, they do better over here…

And we got this little mini rose bush…

Next, we’ll have to work on our grass and try to figure out what to do with the path in the backyard and there has been talk of a couple of rock rivers. But it’s starting to look a little better in our backyard.

Good evening from Northside…

We sat on our patio and watched FC Cincinnati lose the home opener in their beautiful new stadium…

We ate frozen oven pizzas…

And called it a Sunday…

We had another really good day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒ»βš½οΈβ€οΈ

The world almost felt normal today.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we hopped in an Uber to get downtown to go to our first Reds baseball is what seems like forever. Before the game, we stopped at the relatively new DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) in The Banks…

We stopped at Fishbowl at The Banks to share a little fishbowl…

And then we headed into Great American Ball Park…

It felt so good to be back home…

BARGE!

And this one belongs to the Reds! They whooped the Cards 12-1.

We found our Reds All-Star Legacy brick

We rode the Streetcar up into OtR. We walked to The Pony to share their incredible Chicken Fingers and then we were going to walk to Mecca for a drink or two but they don’t open until six. So we wandered around OtR for a bit…

And ended up at Holiday Spirits for a drink…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed for home.

Good evening from Northside…

And it was an incredible day too. The world almost felt normal today. We’ve missed baseball so much. Especially Sunday baseball. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βšΎοΈπŸ”πŸ»β€οΈ

Sunday, March 21st.

After our fun yesterday, we had a pretty low-key Sunday…

It was a very pretty day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β™₯️

Sunday, March 14th.

Today was Pi Day (3.14) so we went to Taft’s for pizza pie…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ•β™₯️

A FREE Sunday pizza party.

Good morning from Northside…

We had earned a free pizza from Domino’s Piece of the Pie Rewards, and this afternoon we cashed in on free pizza…

Here’s our free pizza…

Ohmigosh. Free pizza is so good.

This footprint looked like it had two paw toes…

The laziest of lazy Sundays.

It was a rainy Sunday. And we had the laziest of lazy Sundays. This morning we watched the Chelsea and Leicester FA Cup matches. Unlike Arsenal, both teams advanced to the next round.

Good morning from Northside…

We picked up some NYPD hoagies for lunch today…

While we were eating lunch, we perused some VRBO spots…

NYPD hoagies are so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We watched the NFL playoff games. My biggest fear was that the Packers and Chiefs would both win and we’d have a State Farm Superb Owl. But thankfully, there’s the greatest of all time, Tom Brady…

And it was a rainy Sunday too.

Bleh. Good morning from Northside…

When I was putting this blog post together, I had a hard time figuring out if these were photos from this morning or yesterday evening. It all just looked the same… very, very grey and awfully damp…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

Lowe’s had all their Christmas stuff out in full force…

Christmas trees are silly expensive at Lowe’s…

It must be the frosted tips or maybe the lights…

We got our artificial Christmas tree for a fraction of that a couple of years ago. We found it on one of those deals and discounts websites after Christmas. And I guess we got a really good deal. I liked this wreath…

We’re thinking about replacing the carpeting in our bedroom with this embossed wood plank laminate flooring in Seaside Chestnut

We want to remake our third floor bedroom to have a coastal cottage feel. Genifer wants to paint our bedroom. Here’s the colors she’s thinking…

And I really liked this rug…

And then we went back to Biggby for coffee

I tried this new Biggby maple waffle breakfast sammich…

It was really good. I would definitely eat it again.

And after some football, it was good evening from Northside…

We watched my Minnesota United host their first home playoff match tonight against Colorado Rapids. Andhe Loons earned their first playoff victory with a 3-0 win over Colorado led by two goals from Kevin Molino…

Take that, Stan Kroenke.

Two years ago, we were in Dallas for Thanksgiving. And I ate the spiciest chicken sammich I have ever eaten. It was so delicious but soooo spicy…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop.

It was just a low-key weekend with all the rain. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸŽ„β˜•οΈπŸˆβš½οΈπŸ¦•πŸ”πŸ”₯❀️

International Space Station Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery. They always have different balloons

I like looking at the balloons. And then we got our Mad Llama coffee

And we got our delicious Mad Llama bagel turkey sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sammich on an Asiago cheese bagel…

Tomorrow, they’re going to start working on the water mains on our street again. I went out to move the Jetta up to the end of the street and it wouldn’t start. Again. I just had a new battery put in it the last time they worked on our street. I think it’s probably the alternator but we’ll see. This morning, AAA came out to take it to one of their repair centers…

And there it goes. I hope it isn’t too expensive.

Oscar was just hanging out…

It’s Sunday. We must be going to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

We got to watch the crazy end of the Cowboys game

Taft’s is such great stuff. And today, they had fried mushrooms….

The sky was so pretty this evening…

And good evening from Northside…

We asked the two people standing on the hill what they were watching for, and they said the International Space Station was just about to fly over

And suddenly, there it was…

It was just a little pinhole of light. It almost just looked a star but it was really moving quickly across the sky…

And there it went…

How neat was that? Just being in the right place at the right time.

It was a really cool way to end a great weekend…

Next week is probably going to be another crazy one. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

We have a side yard now!

This morning we woke up early to get over to Lowe’s…

We wanted to get a big drum of stain for our brand new fence. It’s so exciting. After we chose our stain, we headed over to Mad Llama for our Saturday morning coffee…

I bet about half of our runs to Lowe’s and the grocery have just thinly veiled excuses to run across town to get Mad Llama coffee because it is so good…

When we our new fence was installed, we had them move our gate up to the street side of our side door. It gave us a little side yard space that is actually usable now. This afternoon we worked on cleaning up on newly formed little side yard space…

When they ripped up our street to replace the water main, they left a pile of the bricks on the side of our street. It turns those bricks were the original cobblestone bricks from back in the day when Beech Hill was a brick cobblestone street. We grabbed as many of those bricks as we could and stacked them by our air conditioner on the side of our house. We weren’t sure what we were going to be using them for until today. We used them to line the path in our little side yard…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

With our new fence…

And our new little side yard…
