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…

A good morning for Biggby Coffee.

This morning we ran over to Madisonville to get some Biggby Coffee

We got iced drinks this morning! Genifer got her Cinnamon Honey Vanilla Latte, and of course, I got my Cocoa Carmella Hot Chocolate with some butterscotch….

Mmmmm… Biggby Coffee is sooo good. And iced hot chocolate is amazing. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Hooray for BOGO Biggby coffee!

BOGO Biggby coffee makes any morning better. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Guess who’s back?

Guess who’s back open after a brief COVID-19 hiatus? BIGGBY COFFEE! Genifer called Biggby and it turns out they reopened on Wednesday…

So this morning, we ran over to Madisonville to get some Biggby coffees…

We didn’t even need to look at the menu…

Genifer got a Caramel Marvel and I got the Cocoa Carmella with a bit of butterscotch…

Biggby Coffee is so delicious. We’re really happy that they’re back open. We haven’t had coffee from Biggby is almost a month. And that’s just too long. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

A gorgeous Sunday.

It was a gorgeous Sunday…

It was a little on the windy side but it was still really gorgeous. It was almost 80ΒΊ outside this afternoon. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

It was almost like being on vacation.

This morning we walked the four blocks to Sidewinder to get coffee…

Waking up early on a sunny, warm, beautiful morning and walking to get coffee, it felt like being on vacation. It was a wonderful way to start a Sunday at home. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Sunday sports day.

This morning we went to get our morning Biggby Coffee

They had another BOGO coupon on their Instagram

It’s pretty awesome that they have coupons. Not many coffee places do coupons at all.

And then we went over to Kroger to get some groceries for the week…

I didn’t know there was a Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros cereal…

And that’s pretty funny to me because we just had Churros yesterday.

There were some good sports on TV today. We watched Arsenal finally win again, 4-0 over Newcastle United and both Michigan and Wichita State won big. We watched a little bit of the XFL games. And finally, we watched the NBA All-Star Game. And that turned out to be a really good game.

We also made this delicious Donatos oven pizza for our late lunch…

And it turned out to be a really pretty day. We took the dogs on a long walk…

It was just another really relaxing Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Seen and noted: Sunday morning edition.

This morning we got up early to go over to get our weekend Biggby Coffee

Genifer tried their Starry Night Latte. She said it was really good. And I got my Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with butterscotch…

I get the same thing every time. Once we had our drinks, we headed over to Kroger to get some groceries. Valentine’s Day is next weekend and the Valentine’s Day stuff was pretty much everywhere…

We saw another chocolate Perfect Man

We saw the perfect Valentine for a man…

All these adorable llamas said hey…

Also, chocolate Easter bunnies are out on shelf at Kroger…

I don’t know when Easter is this year. But it feels pretty early for Easter bunnies.

And we saw this panda bear in the international food aisle…

The panda was filled with these weird jello cups with floating bits of fruit…

I wonder if they’re any good? The Asian section of the international food aisle is usually where the odd ball stuff is stored.

There’s always something mildly interesting at the grocery store. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ’—β£οΈβ€οΈ
