The first snow.

It was another Monday. And Mondays usually mean that it’s going to be another grey and rainy morning in Northside…

And it was cold outside too.

You can’t really tell from these photos but this morning it was raining hard enough that the dogs didn’t even want to go outside on their walk. We had to pretty much drag them out of the house and down to the end of the street so they would potty.

Mondays are tough. I feel like they are the busiest days of the week. When I look back at my photos to do a blog post for almost any Monday, there are never any photos from during the day. There are photos from our morning dog walk and then it jumps straight to photos from the evening dog walk.

And today was no different. This afternoon it started snowing. Our very first snow of the season. The snow was starting to accumulate on top of the cars on our street…

It started really snowing on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

There was more snow on the Jetta when we got back from going around the block…

But the snow wasn’t starting to accumulate on the grass yet…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made turkey meatloaf…

She also made instant mashed potatoes and I finished the last of the Thanksgiving mac&cheese…

And it was delicious. We ate the entire meatloaf. It’s kind of a bummer because I was looking forward to a meatloaf sammich for lunch tomorrow.

When we got upstairs, I was trying to work on our blog but Flickr was having a case of the Mondays as well…

8 Tonight, we watched Xavier squeak out a win against Eastern Kentucky. Then we fell asleep. We always end up falling asleep pretty early on Mondays. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ„οΈπŸ€β€οΈ

Hello Christmas tree.

Happy Friday after Thanksgiving! And good morning from Northside…

We put up our Christmas tree out this morning…

We started to add lights but two sets were burned out leaving us with a Christmas tree that was only half-lit …

Unfortunately for Oscar, Genifer found his reindeer antlers…

We ran over to the post office…

We sent a package out that we probably should have mailed last week but I completely forgot about it. We’ll see if it still arrives in time. I hope so.

After we mailed our package, it was Skyline time!

Genifer had a deluxe burrito. And I had a 5-way…

Skyline is so good. I saved my cheese coneys for later. After lunch, Genifer kept working on bringing out the Christmas decorations and I went out to work on the front yard a bit…

We could see our T+G again…

We took the dogs on their evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll work on some Christmas lights…

We had Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner…

Later, we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Minion Holiday Special and then we watched 47 Hours to Live on Netflix. The Christmas specials were terrific. The movie was not so great.

But today was fantastic. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽ„πŸ β€οΈ

T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒˆπŸΎβ€οΈ
