#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

We have guests!

It was a very pretty morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We saw a snail on our way home…

We haven’t seen very many snails lately…

And it was very pretty evening too…

Good evening from Northside…

All these odd markings have appeared on our street…

And this evening, JJVE from Boston arrived at our house by way of Michigan. They’re visiting us for the weekend…

We’re so excited to get to hang out all weekend with them.

This evening there was quite the thunderstorm…

As I was taking photos of the storm, lightning stuck and illuminated the entire street…

Did we mention we’re very excited for this weekend? πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒπŸ‘πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§β›ˆοΈβ€οΈ

Another overcast Monday.

It was another grey and overcast Monday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We have three new HelloFresh meals for our dinners this week. Our first meal was Triple Mushroom Truffle Gnocchi with with garlicky Panko and Parmesan…

I don’t think I’ve ever had gnocchi before. It was delicious! And anything with a mushroom sauce has always been one of my favorites.

We made it through another overcast Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈ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

Hello from Northside.

It was a really pretty morning…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon the sky started getting kind of dark…

We started another week of HelloFresh meals. Our first meal this week Kung Pao Chicken with sweet Szechuan sauce with peanuts & jasmine rice…

It was another really delicious dinner. We like the HelloFresh meals a lot. It rained while we were eating but it looked like it stopped long enough to make it around the block…

We had a really good Wednesday. We started watching Game of Thrones on HBO Max. (Welcome to the party, pal!) And now we can see what all the buzz what about now. That show is craaaazy. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ₯‘🌧️❀️

In my Timehop were these pictures of Svensk…

She loved sitting in the window in our apartment and watching the world go by…

We miss the kitty.

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…
