Today was a hot one.

Good morning form Northside…

It was a hot one today…

Our first HelloFresh meal of the week was Jalapeno Business Bacon Mac & Cheese with with crispy breading topping…

Holy geez. Every single one of these meals is delicious. I would definitely eat this one at least once a week. It was so good.

And good evening from Northside…

We were watching more of the Olympics tonight. We couldn’t locate the remote after the coverage concluded. And while we were looking for it, we were subjected to the local news…

Apparently, it’s going to be hot on Thursday as well. But oppressive? Really? There wasn’t another word they could have used? We were reminded again that there’s a reason we don’t watch any of the local news broadcasts.

And I recently tallied my 81,000th check-in on my Swarm

It was good Monday. 😀🌄🌡️🍽️📺❤️

Happy Foursquare Day!

Today was Foursquare Day (4.16)…

Good morning from Northside…

And time for post-walk treats…

After work, we tried a couple of beers from my parents trip out west…

The tangerine citrus ale was pretty good but the blueberry wheat was outstanding.

Good evening from Northside…

We ordered off the kids menu for dinner tonight…

It was pretty good start to the weekend. 😀🌄✈️🐾🍻❤️

We have a new dining room rug.

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer ordered a new rug for our dining room…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was BBQ PulledPork Tacos with cheddar-jack cheese and crispy jalapenos since it was Taco Tuesday and all…

Taco Tuesday tacos are always really good. And these ones were terrific! We like the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kits a lot.

Fiver years ago, I had just hit 48,000 check-ins on my Swarm…

Fast forward to today and I have a little over 80,000 check-ins. I still really like my Swarm. And I really like my tacos. 😀🌄🌮⭐️❤️

Have you tried The Fiamma?!

After the Arsenal’s FA Cup match this afternoon, we headed over to get some pizza at Taft’s Brewpourium

Taft’s had Hazelnut Latte, their coffee stout made with Cincinnati’s own Deeper Roots coffee, on draft…

We ordered The Fiamma again

And we tried Taft’s cheesy bread…

We also tried Main Squeeze Vol. One. with pink guava and lactose…

And we got their Hazelnut Latte sticky bread to go…

Everything was just as delicious as always. We used part of the gift card my parent’s gave us for Christmas. We put $30 on our gift card this time. And we’ll get to use it two more times! Thanks, mom & dad!

On our way out to the car, we saw a train. I could probably watch the trains go by all day. I love the graffiti on the train cars…

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, I logged my 80,000th check-in on my Swarm

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm!

And we kept watching Manhunt: Unabomber on Netflix. Any day we get to go to Taft’s Brewpourium is a pretty good day. We like that place a lot. 😀🌄🍕🍺🚂⭐️❤️

79000 check-ins.

This morning I tallied my 79000th check-in on my Swarm

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

But I think I’m going to be done with Swarm when I hit 80,000 check-ins, if not sooner. They made some changes to the app because of COVID-19 and it’s just not nearly as much fun anymore. We’ve had a good run Swarm.

A new personal best.

Last week, I ended up setting a new brand personal best for points in a week on my Swarm by whopping twelve points…

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

My Swarm January recap.

I got another Swarm monthly recap

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Django Western Taco.

This morning we ran some errands. We got more Biggby Coffee and then ran to the grocery to get some stuff for the week. When we got back to Northside, we braved the cold to walk over to Django Western Taco for lunch…

We had some chips & salsa, each had a taco and shared their Jerk Chicken Quesadilla…

And then we shared Django’s amazing bread pudding…

This time it was a bourbon caramel bread pudding. It was amazing!

And I became the mayor of Django again on my Swarm

Django is so good. It’s one of our Northside favorites. 😀🌮❤️

Another low-key Sunday.

We got up early this morning to run over to get a few groceries from Trader Joe’s. And I became the mayor of Trader Joe’s on Swarm

And then, we stopped at Biggby again for weekend morning coffee

Genifer is the mayor of Biggby. We just had another pretty lazy day at home. I finished up my project for work. And we took the dogs on a few walks. On one of our walks, we found this little jazzy cool cat on the sidewalk that someone must have lost…

I set him on the base of one of the streetlights. I hope he can find his people again. We watched The Aeronauts on Prime Video. It was pretty good. It was just another pretty low-key Sunday. 😀☕️🐱❤️

Weekends are always better when you don’t have to work on a bunch of stuff for work. But it’s also pretty nice to have the opportunity to work on some pretty big projects, even if the timelines are kind of ridiculous.

76,000 check-ins!

I just tallied my 76,000th check-in with My Swarm 

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️
