And we have a few more rocks.

Good morning from Northside…

We got another delivery of rocks for our backyard early this afternoon…

Our last delivery of rocks was from Lowe’s. But they would only delivery 15 bags of rocks at a time. This time we ordered from Home Depot. They’d delivery as many bags of rocks as you’d like. We ordered 70 bags of pea gravel and 7 bags of river rocks…

And we moved them all from the sidewalk to our backyard in about 35 minutes…

We have a lot of pea gravel…

And there’s the rest of our river rocks down there…

We ended up moving the rocks during the hottest part of the day…

We get to choose three HelloFresh meals a week. And tonight, we had another HelloFresh meal for dinner. This one was Italian Pepper Steak Sandos with melty mozzarella & roasted potato wedges…

SANDOS! Gosh. We’re really loving these HelloFresh meal kits.

After dinner, the skies looked pretty ominous…

It started sprinkling on us while we were out on our walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Three years ago, I had my second hip surgery…

Four years ago, we were witness to the best soccer game I’ve ever seen live…

Five years ago, we were all moved into our house in Northside…

And we had our very first NYPD PIzza party

We can’t wait for the weekend so we can start dumping bags upon bags of pea gravel in our backyard. 😀🌄🏡🍽️☁️🌧️❤️

Goodbye, Ikea sofa.

Our Ikea sofa has seen better days. We don’t really sit on it very much anymore. The dogs kind of claimed it and started sitting on it more than we did. We ordered a new one that’s supposed to be here pretty soon-ish. It’s still a nice sofa, comfy and functional and all. But it’s just become kind of dingy…

So this morning I listed it on Nextdoor

We didn’t feel right charging someone for it. But we didn’t want to see go to the dump. It’s still nice enough that someone could still get some good use out of it. Some college kids picked it up this evening…

We got a lot of good use out of it…

It was a really nice sofa. 😀🏡❤️

Three years ago, we were at our 257th Reds baseball game at Great American Ball Park, give or take a game or two…

Our plan for this summer was to drop FC Cincinnati entirely and go to many more Reds baseball games. We’ve just gone off FC|C completely. We enjoy the Reds games so much more than the soccer matches. GABP is my happy place. And I really missed going to baseball games this summer.

Of course, that plan never materialized. So thanks for that, COVID-19.
Hopefully, next summer. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😐🦕⚾️❤️

Two years ago, I was recovering from my second hip replacement surgery…

Three years ago today, FC Cincinnati’s magical 2017 US Open Cup run continued as FC|C defeated Chicago Fire on penalties in the Round of 16. It was an amazing night that will forever be etched in Cincinnati sports lore…

Thinking about that night still gives me chills.

And four years ago, we officially moved into our house in Northside…

Unpacking is just the worst. I’m glad we’re all settled into our great big house now. And we said goodbye to our little apartment downtown…

Five years ago, Cincinnati was getting ready to host the MLB All-Star Game…

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕🍕❤️

 

Pause for paws.

Oscar is sooooo fluffy

He gets a very much needed haircut on Friday. 😀🐾✂️❤️

And here’s photo of Oscar when we were still able to watch baseball…

I really miss baseball.

Remembering our first Christmas tree in our new house three years ago…

It looked so tall when we picked it out. And four years ago, when it was so ridiculously warm for our Holiday Party at Rhinegeist

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕❤️

Three years ago.

Three years ago today, everyone was waking up to a world where the Chicago Cubs were finally World Series champions after 108 years…

GO CUBS GO! Thanks for the memories, Timehop! 😀🦕⚾️❤️

That reminds me, if you ever get the opportunity to watch Let’s Play Two, it’s terrific…

Let’s Play Two is a documentary that chronicles Pearl Jam’s legendary performance at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music.

It’s just an incredible film that made me fall in love with Pearl Jam all over again. And it does an amazing job of telling the story of the years of heartbreak to the elation of Cubs fans and mystique of Wrigley Field and how it all intertwines with Pearl Jam playing Wrigley Field during Cubs magical run to their World Series championship. That’s a wicked long run-on sentence but it’s just a great documentary that I ended up buying and watch probably once a week.

And while we’re talking about baseball during the non-baseball season, peep this…

It’s all the Cincinnati Reds Big Red Machine team shown through baseball cards framed on a baseball diamond organized by player position. I’ve never really seen anything like this and I just thought it was also really pretty neat.

Thanks, Timehop.

These popped up in my Timehop this morning…

Oh, the good old days of FC Cincinnati Orlando City B in the USL. I miss those days. And four years ago, we stopped for milkshakes on our way up to Michigan

Also, look how little Violette and Edgerton used to be. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕❤️

Timehopping.

One year ago today, I had my second hip replacement surgery…

Two years ago, USL FC Cincinnati defeated MLS Chicago Fire in the US Open Cup…

And three years ago, we moved into our house in Northside…

That’s a pretty historically busy day! Thanks, Timehop!😀🦕❤️

Three years ago today.

Three years ago today, we got married in Jamaica…

Without a doubt, the last three years have been the happiest of my whole life.
Happy anniversary, baby! I love you with all of my heart! 😀💍❤️
