Hello from Northside.

The sun was so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Mack keeps migrating a lot of the dog toys to our studio office…

And for some reason, most of the toys always accumulate here.

It was a very pretty evening too…

Genifer made pork chops with sriracha Brussels sprouts for dinner…

She always finds the best recipes to make. Tonight, we finished Lupin. We hope there are more episodes coming sometime soon. It was a pretty good show. And today was another pretty good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Another great Sunday.

The sky was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had our normal weekend outing to the grocery…

The Valentine’s Day stuff is out in force…

Both the panda and the train were in the international aisle…

These balloons were very cheerful. I liked the little frog…

And Ice Bear was still trapped inside in the claw grab machine…

We stopped for Biggby coffee

It was time to say goodbye to our Christmas tree again…

We made BLTs with seasoned curly fries for lunch…

Xavier beat Providence with a buzz-beater and Wichita State handled Cincinnati.

The sky was pretty this evening as well..

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we finished Manhunt: Unabomber. It was pretty good. Very interesting.

And twelve years ago today, I got started on Twitter…

I don’t really post a lot on Twitter, or really on any social media anymore. But I sure do scroll through my Twitter feed all the dang time. I wonder how much I’ll keep looking at Twitter after January 20th. This is probably going to help a bunch…

It sounds like it’s already making Twitter a better place. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

Who knows. Not me.

I love this part of time off from work when you wake up in the morning and you’re not entirely certain exactly what day it is…

The clouds were so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I ordered this adorable westie pendant for Genifer for Christmas…

I purchased it on December 12th. It didn’t ship until December 18th. It shipped USPS so it’s journey took almost forever. It arrived today. And this is what was in the box…

Delightful. Now I get to track down what I actually ordered.

Genifer ordered us Chipotle for lunch again

It started raining this afternoon and just kept raining…

I accidentally took this photo but I kind of like it…

And a very rainy good evening from Northside…

But our basement is still completely bone dry…

Thursdays are trash and recycling days…

We had leftover lasagna for dinner with garlic bread…

I love meals with garlic bread. Genifer made deep dish cookies for dessert…

We started to watch Equinox on Netflix tonight. It seems pretty good so far.

In my Timehop from two years ago, my photos on Google Maps had just gone over 3.5 million views…

Fast forward to today and my photos have 63 million views

And that’s pretty cool, if you ask me. Also four years ago, it snowed…

We don’t snow very often. But we do get a lot of great days, just like this one.

The first day of winter break.

Genifer has to work a couple of days this week. But I have the entire week off work…

Good morning from Northside…

I worked on organizing our studio office today…

Sometimes it’s hard to get Mack to come downstairs to go on walks…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Alfredo Penne with mozzarella. Again. We wanted to get a different meal this time. The one we wanted was something-something Caesar chicken. But I grabbed the wrong one out of the refrigerated case at the grocery…

It was another really good meal. We just wished it was a different one. But it was still a really good dinner. And we got to enjoy some more garlic bread. And I love garlic bread. We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot. And Genifer made these deep dish chocolate chip cookies…

Ohmigosh. They were so good. We paired them with little chocolate swirl ice cream cups. It was a really great dessert. The dogs new toys have their fist casualty. Oscar gnawed off one of the eyes of the avocado toy…

We had another pretty good day. Hopefully, this will be a very low-key, relaxing week at home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran out to get some Christmas Eve Eve Biggby coffee

We ran around a little bit to do some last minute Christmas shopping…

We got some odds and ends stuff. And a bunch of new dog toys for Oscar & Mack. I also got Mack a new dog bed and Snoopy blanket to go in our studio office where he sleeps a lot. I snuck his new bed upstairs while he was outside…

I showed him his new dog bed and he pretty much spent the rest of the day lounging on it…

While I was hanging out in the studio office with Mack, I decided to check out day 23 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

I think he really likes his new dog bed…

Later, we had a NYPD Pizza hoagie party….

NYPD hoagies are so good. And their fries were even better than normal tonight.

We dragged Mack off his new dog bed to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After he got his treats, Mack was right back upstairs, crashed out on his new dog bed…

This evening, we finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix. It was a really good series. We hope they get around to making a third season someday. But it probably won’t be anytime soon.

And Mack was still sleeping on his new dog bed…

We hope everyone had a Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Oh. I also thought these drawings from @crazyheadcomics & @wearyourvoice were really beautiful…

It just reaffirms how blessed we are and how good we have it this Christmas Eve Eve.

And… we’re done with work.

We walked down to watch the sunrise…

And good morning from Northside…

Today was day 22 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We powered through our last work day before Christmas. And finished up our projects for the week.

Then it was time to take the dogs on their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Stroganoff Beef Meatloaf with green beans…

And it was another really delicious dinner. Those little meatloaves were just out of this world. I love anything beef stroganoff. I think it’s my favorite gravy. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

We received a card in the mail from Skyline today…

During one of the Xavier basketball games a while back, I won a $15 gift card during their Skyline Chili virtual parachute drop on Twitter

And today, our gift card showed up in the mail…

Thanks, Xavier and Skyline! That’s pretty dang cool. We’re looking forward to having some Skyline very soon and cruising into the long holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿงงโค๏ธ

A great start to a three-day weekend.

We both had the day off work today. I could really get used to four-day work weeks. Genifer doesn’t work on Fridays and I used my very last vacation day of 2020…

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 18 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

The lead of the eCommerce group at work dropped off a Christmas gift…

It was pretty amazing that she did this. It’s very appreciated. And the roll of toilet paper is hilarious.

Later, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch. As we were walking down Hamilton Avenue, we noticed a new hair salon has already gone into the location where Helltown Bazaar Workshop used to be…

Surprisingly, Django Western Taco just closed up shop and no longer has a presence in Northside…

And that’s a bummer. We really liked Django a lot. But whatever, it was time for lunch…

Genifer ordered a grilled cheeses with tomatoes…

I ordered my favorite chicken tender sammich…

Blue Jay is always so good. It’s nothing super fancy. It’s always just solid. We never had anything but terrific meals at Blue Jay. Afterward, we stopped at Shake It Records

It’s really hard for me to find new and interesting music that I like. I really like reggae. And I like usually music. I was thumbing through the global music vinyl. And found some interesting stuff to check out…

I’m going to check these out on iTunes or Amazon Music and then come back for the ones I like. At some point, I’d like to upgrade our turntable and get some little speakers in our living room as well…

Hi Oscar…

We took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

I had a leftover taco for a dinner snack…

Genifer made this sugar cookie mix..

I thought the cookies were pretty good but Genifer didn’t care for them. They could definitely use some icing. The dogs always go outside one last time before we go upstairs…

Tonight was the final episode of season two of The Mandalorian,..

Now that all the episodes are avialable, we could finally binge-watch the season. And it was amazing! That show is just wow. I wish we could binge watch it every single day. I wish they would make an infinite amount of Star Wars series with all sorts of storylines from around the Star Wars universe. That would be amazing.

In my Timehop today, we ate at Django when they were still in Northside…

And Oscar is a very handsome little guy…

It was a great start to our three-day weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Today was a TACO TUESDAY!

Good morning from Northside…

Time for day 15 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

It was another crazy busy day at work. But we managed to get through again. And then it was good evening from Northside…

Genifer has a pastrami broiler sammich for dinner tonight…

And I had turkey tacos…

And that makes today a TACO TUESDAY! My tacos were delicious!

In my Timehop today, there were a couple of Mack in our backyard…

And this photo of Milan in the snow at Lytle Park downtown…

A couple of very handsome guys. We watched a couple more episodes of Black Spot on Netflix and called it a pretty good Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pizza with friends.

It was so nice this morning. The temperature was supposed to be in the low 60s today…

Good morning from Northside…

Day twelve of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Early this afternoon it started pouring down rain though it was hard to tell from our third-floor WyzeCam

It rained for about an hour. And then it stopped just before we went to meet our friends Mehwish and Ben at the only place we really go to anymore because of the pandemic… Taft’s Brewpourium. We met them over there to hang out, catch up,
and of course, have a beer and eat some pizza…

I forgot to take a photo of all of us. I’m so bad at remembering to take a photo when we’re hanging out with people. Or maybe just self-conscious or something. But I did remember to take a photo of our pizzas…

This was Taft’s new pizza, The Fiamma…

It’s their mozzarella with tomato sauce base topped with hot soppressata and hot honey drizzle. And it was a really delicious pizza. It turns out soppressata was less like salami and more like pepperoni. The honey on the pizza was really good. And it was hot warm, not hot spicy. It was a really terrific pie.

TRAIN!

And we saw a beautiful sunset from Taft’s…

We had so much fun hanging out with Mehwish and Ben. It was great to see them, hang out and catch up. It’s been a minute since we’ve hung out with other people.

It ended up being a pretty evening in Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

The NBA preseason started this evening with both my Mavs and Grizzlies playing their first games of the new season. We didn’t get to watch either of their games. We don’t get many of the Mavs or Grizz games on TV. But it’s terrific to know that NBA Basketball is back!

We had a pretty fun Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ
