#JJVECincy2021 Saturday.

Hello from Northside…

The clouds were looking a bit on the dark side this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This morning Oscar was given the nickname Captain Oskey. And Mack was dubbed Cowboy Mac ‘n Cheese. Mostly because the kids thought Mack’s spots make him look like a little cow.

We headed out to start our big fun Saturday with JJVE. We had to duck under some awnings for cover from rain showers twice once we were on our way. And then the sun was out…

We walked to Bonomini Bakery to get donuts for breakfast…

Food & Wine recently named Bonomini The Best Doughnut in Ohio

We ate our donuts over at Hoffner Park…

But we were still hungry so we had lunch at Taqueria 251

Their esquite is pretty incredible…

And their chilaquiles rojos were really good…

After lunch, we walked over to Urban Artifact

When we got home, all of us took the dogs around the block…

We stopped at the playgrounds up at the school on the top of the hill…

Good evening from Northside…

We played some hybrid soccer in our backyard, made a bunch of drawlings and had an NYPD Pizza party…

We discovered Rollino Lattes…

And we played a bunch of Uno…

It was a big day. The kids wore Mack out…

We had the most amazing Saturday. It was the best day. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ₯°β€οΈ

More special deliveries.

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning. And when we got to Lowe’s, it started pouring down rain…

Like torrential downpour rain…

Believe it or not, we needed more stones. But this time, we got more river peebles…

And when we were on our way to our car, still raining…

And we stopped for more Mad Llama coffee

I had forgotten how many llamas were inside Mad Llama…

Mmmm… Java whip…

When we got home, the rain had let up and we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

So grey…

We were expecting another special delivery…

Later in the afternoon, the sun decided to make an appearance…

Good evening from Northside…

To celebrate the sun coming out, we walked to NYPD to pick up a pizza party…

And we hung out in our backyard…

Part of our special delivery were these flamingo lawn ornaments…

And since it was a bit cool from the rain, we made our first fire pit…

And another of special deliveries was this projector for our back patio…

The screen from our projector arrives tomorrow.

We’re starting to really love our backyard. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ•πŸ¦©πŸ”₯πŸ“ΊπŸ€β€οΈ

Coffee. Inside?!

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to Mad Llama to get coffee…

And today, we could actually go back inside to get our coffees…

It was pretty exciting to be able to get coffee from inside Mad Llama again…

It’s the little things.

It was looking very dark off in the direction of home…

When it got home, it started pouring…

Once it was done raining, we set our new little fire pit out in our backyard…

We had one HelloFresh meal left for this week. So we ate Meatball with Bulgogi Sauce and roasted carrots, ginger rice and sriracha crema for an early dinner…

It was another delicious meal. There hasn’t been a bad meal yet. They’ve all been really good. We can’t wait to try our meals next week.

Good evening from Northside…

We watched the Copa America final…

It was pretty tremendous to see Messi finally lift his trophy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•πŸŒ¨οΈπŸ”₯πŸ“Ίβš½β€οΈ

Happy 7-1!

Today is July 1st! Happy 7-1 to all that celebrate…

It was another rainy morning…

On our walk this morning, we only made it to the stop sign at end of street…

But when we went on our walk this evening, the sun was out…

Weather. Go figure.

Good evening from Northside…

We haven’t seen very many snails on our walks so far this year…

Our third and final HelloFresh dinner of the week was Pecan & Walnut Crusted Chicken with BBQ-spiced sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple…

Have we said that we really like the HelloFresh meals?

When we got upstairs, it started pouring again…

And now we have a long four-day holiday weekend…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

Dang. Still more rain.

Good morning from Northside…

The sun was out and the skies were blue with wispy white clouds this morning but by lunch time it was pouring down rain…

Mack and Oscar were waiting patiently for me to finish up with work…

Good evening from Northside…

Our second HelloFresh meal for the week was Sheet Pan Pork Sausage & Pepper Flatbreads with Monterey Jack and mozzarella…

I just don’t know what to say. All the meals are so good.

After dinner, it started raining again…

And it kept raining all night. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸΎπŸ½οΈπŸ•β€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Another grey Monday.

Why does it seem like every Monday so overcast and grey?

Good morning from Northside…

It started raining again this morning…

This airplane was flying east to west which was weird because we see a lot of planes over Northside but they all fly north and south, not east and west. It was kind of odd…

Good evening from Northside…

Mondays are just so bleh, especially when they are all rainy and grey. But these photos from my Timehop made today a little sunnier…

πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Thursdays are for pizza parties.

I think it rained all night and it was still raining this morning…

And it started sprinkling again just as soon as we got to the top of the hill.

Good morning from Northside….

Genifer was painting our hallway…

When we were leaving to go on our evening walk, it looked really ominous…

Good evening from Northside…

As soon as we got on front porch, it started pouring…

And then we ran over to pick up NYPD Pizza in the pouring rain…

Our pizza was amazing…

We hadn’t had an NYPD Pizza party in a minute.

And then we watched more of Ragnarok on Netflix. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸ•πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

It was just a rainy day.

We only made it up to the end of the street…

And it pretty much rained all day. Genifer made cauliflower and chickpea curry for dinner tonight…

It was really good. She always finds the best recipes.

After we were done eating, it almost stopped raining long enough for us to get out and around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

And then it started raining some more. Ugh. It was just one of those rainy days.

We watched a few more episodes of Ragnarok tonight. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸœβ›ˆοΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Rainy days are for Chipotle.

It was pouring down rain this morning. The dogs didn’t even make it to the end of the street before they turned around to head for home…

Genifer ordered us Chipotle for lunch again…

This is how mack was sleeping in our office studio while I was working…

It stopped raining in time for our evening walk..

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer has been working on painting our dining room…

We ate the rest of our Chipotle for dinner and headed upstairs for the evening…

We need to find a new series to watch. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜”οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸŒ―πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ
