Thursdays are for pizza!

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar hung out with my in our studio office for most of the day…

We listened to Arsenal draw with Crystal Palace this afternoon. And then we went out on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

Thursdays are for NYPD Pizza parties

NYPD Pizza is so delicious. And so inexpensive. We love Thursday pizza nights. Genifer made little chocolate chip banana bread puddings for dessert…

They were really good. It was another delicious Thursday.

Tonight, we watched the first two episodes of Collateral: Limited Series on Netflix.

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

A 43-6 scoring run?!

It was another overcast morning…

Good morning from Northside…

But it turned out to be a pretty evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This was Italian Romano Pork Meatloaf with Parmesan broccoli and red peppersโ€ฆ

And add some extra dust cheese…

It was another really delicious meal. All the meatloaf dinners we’ve tried have been outstanding. This was yet another meal that would have gone really well with garlic bread. But I’ve been told that not every meal needs to have garlic bread with it. Still, we like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

We watched Michigan run riot on Wisconsin. At one point in the second half, Michigan was up by 40 points courtesy of a stretch when the Wolverines outscored the Badgers 43-6

And they’re only going to get better next season…

And five years ago, Michigan beat then #3 Maryland

โ€œWho’s got it better than us?โ€ Hail! GO BLUE! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฝ๏ธใ€ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

We found a new vet.

It’s another grey and overcast Monday…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer had to go into her office today. And this morning our third-floor WyzeCam captured a fire truck on our street for a moment…

We’ve been looking for a new vet because we were getting tired of the one we had been going to up in College Hill. And Mack is still not great in the car. He’s getting better. But he’s still not great. Genifer found Dr. Mike’s Mobile Veterinary Service on the interwebs. And they came right to our house…

They were great! They looked over our guys. Checked out Mack’s ears, Oscar’s cough and knee. Everything was good. They gave us home remedies to try for Mack’s ears. And the allergy medicine the dogs take was a lot cheaper from Dr. Mike. I think we just found a new vet!

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had vegetable Tikka Marsala for dinner tonight…

It’s so good and tasty. We really like it a lot. And Genifer made deep dish cookies again for dessert with little ice cream party cups…

Tonight, we started watching Lupin on Netflix. And we made it through another Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿš’๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿช๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

And this is totally us, especially when we’re working from home…

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

And we’re back at it.

We’re back at it, working from home after having a long twelve day holiday break. And of course, it would be a grey and overcast, rainy Monday morning. I mean, why wouldn’t it be?

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one had a really long name too. This was one Baked Chicken Parmesan with garlic herb butternut squash and Brussels sprouts…

It was another really good meal. The chicken was delicious and the veggies were really good as well. This is another meal that would have gone really well with garlic bread. But somehow, we were all fresh out. Still, we like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

I was kinda hoping that today would be gradual easing back into work. Nope. That wasn’t the case at all. I got tossed in the middle of two turn and burn projects. The second involved me creating eight of these three-quarter view renders of designs I created well before holiday break…

I finally got them all done around 11:30pm. Nothing like a 16 hour day on your first day back after the holiday break. So much for a slow and easy first day back to work.

A nice start to the new year.

Welcome to the new year! Good morning from Northside…

Our new year got off to a very lazy start. We were so lazy. Today, we ended up watching the entire season of Manhunt: Deadly Games. We watched all ten episodes back to back to back. It was a really good show. We like the detective shows. We did take a little break about halfway through to get NYPD hoagies for lunch…

We ordered a family fry but they gave us cheese fries. And they gave us a regular fry instead of my hoagie. We called them and they sorted it out. NYPD hoagies are so good. We were so stuffed afterward. We watched our UC Bearcats lose a heartbreaker to Georgia in the Peach Bowl. They represented themselves very well on the big stage. All the while Mack hung out on his dog bed in our studio office…

And then we took the dogs around the block. The sky was very pretty tonight…

Good evening from Northside…

It was a very pretty evening. We had a great lazy day just watching our show.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿฅช๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

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

Happy winter solstice.

Today was the Winter solstice. It’s the official start of winter and the shortest day of the year. I found this online and thought it was pretty funny…

Day 21 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

It was a really beautiful evening…

We took the dogs around the block….

I took a little video of the sunset as well and then sped it up a bit in iMovie…

The little clouds were so pretty. It was really pretty from our backyard as well…

I think the bright star at the end of the branch just below the middle of the frame is the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn

The two largest planets in our Solar System, Jupiter and Saturn, were so close to each other in the sky that they were both be visible through a telescope eyepiece at the same time. We don’t have a telescope. But such close passes are known as Great Conjunctions. The Great Conjunction of 2020 was the closest in almost 400 years.

I was just about to go grab my biggest telephoto lens but the clouds started quickly taking over the evening skies…

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Alfredo Penne with mozzarellaโ€ฆ

And it was another really good dinner. We didn’t like this one as much as the Italian Sausage and Roasted Tomato Cream Cavatappiโ€ฆ with peas. It was good. We just wished it was something other than chicken. But it was still a really good meal. We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

We headed upstairs and watched a couple more episodes of Mindhunter on Netflix.

And I also saw this one online today that I thought was pretty funny…

Just one more day of work for the year. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒค๏ธ๐Ÿช๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Urban Artifact + Kitchen Factory.

Good morning from Northside…

Day 20 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

Good evening from Northside…

Shannon ordered us some Urban Artifact beers for Christmas. This evening we ran over to UA to pick up our order. We were really excited to see what she got us…

And there’s our order…

On our way back home, we stopped to pick up dinner from The Kitchen Factory

When we got home with our dinner, the sunset looked so pretty from our backyard…

And tben it was back to our dinner from Kitchen Factory…

Genifer ordered their Veggie Meatball Hoagie…

I ordered the Baked Chicken Pesto Hoagie…

We both ordered the pasta salad as our side. And it came in a condiment container…

It was less of a side and more of a mouthful of pasta salad. Still, it was really good. We just wished there was more of it. We also ordered a side of their Famous Vegan Mac & Cheese…

Our dinner was sooo good. The hoagies were amazing! We’ll definitely be ordering from Kitchen Factory again. We’ll have to order a couple of their pizzas sometime as well.

Genifer made some incredible seven-layer bars for dessert…

Now that our bellies are full, let’s take a look to see what Shannon got us…

Wow! Those sound like some delicious beers! We placed them under our Christmas tree. And we can’t wait to try them! Thanks, Shannon!

We’ve been watching Mindhunter on Netflix. It’s about the origins of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit in the late ’70s. It’s been a really good show so far.

And we had a really good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ
