Who knows. Not me.

I love this part of time off from work when you wake up in the morning and you’re not entirely certain exactly what day it is…

The clouds were so pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

I ordered this adorable westie pendant for Genifer for Christmas…

I purchased it on December 12th. It didn’t ship until December 18th. It shipped USPS so it’s journey took almost forever. It arrived today. And this is what was in the box…

Delightful. Now I get to track down what I actually ordered.

Genifer ordered us Chipotle for lunch again

It started raining this afternoon and just kept raining…

I accidentally took this photo but I kind of like it…

And a very rainy good evening from Northside…

But our basement is still completely bone dry…

Thursdays are trash and recycling days…

We had leftover lasagna for dinner with garlic bread…

I love meals with garlic bread. Genifer made deep dish cookies for dessert…

We started to watch Equinox on Netflix tonight. It seems pretty good so far.

In my Timehop from two years ago, my photos on Google Maps had just gone over 3.5 million views…

Fast forward to today and my photos have 63 million views

And that’s pretty cool, if you ask me. Also four years ago, it snowed…

We don’t snow very often. But we do get a lot of great days, just like this one.
😀🌄☁️🌯🌧️🗺️❤️

Our new sofa arrived. Finally.

It was a very rainy morning…

In fact, it was raining so much that the dogs didn’t even want to go on a walk. We basically dragged them down to the end of the street to potty.

This morning our new sofa was finally supposed to be delivered. I think we ordered it all the way back at the beginning of August. So long ago in fact, that I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to look like or even what color we ended up choosing. We had the space in our living room all ready…

And then it was here…

And our new sofa is just perfectly splendid…

It’s so nice and stylish and very, very comfortable to sit on. Maybe we’ll actually start watching TV is our living room instead of always retreating upstairs to our bedroom. We’ll see. But we’re very happy with our new sofa.

Today was the start of the college basketball season. I watched Xavier just destroy Oakland. And Michigan hold off a very good Bowling Green team. It’s terrific to have college basketball back in our quarantine lives.

I finished up my projects for the week. And it was time for the long four-day holiday weekend. It was also time to take the dogs on the evening walk around the block…

We clouds didn’t even look real this evening. They looked like a painting…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer ordered holiday sweaters for Oscar and Mack…

They’re a little snug. But still very festive. Mack didn’t seem to mind his. But you could tell Oscar was mad while he had his sweater on.

We had a few drinks this evening to celebrate our new sofa and because it was the biggest going out night of the year.

But we were still in bed before eleven o’clock. 😀🌄🌧️🏡🌻🐾🍻❤️

And this photo of Mack showed up in my Timehop today…

Banana pudding is delicious.

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening for Northside…

I found this recipe for how to make the banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery in New York City at home. We didn’t make this recipe exactly. But Genifer still made banana pudding for us…

I mixed my pudding and ReddiWip all together…

Banana pudding is delicious. 😀🌄🐾🍌❤️

And this photo of Oscar showed up in my Timehop today…

And it was a rainy Sunday too.

Bleh. Good morning from Northside…

When I was putting this blog post together, I had a hard time figuring out if these were photos from this morning or yesterday evening. It all just looked the same… very, very grey and awfully damp…

We ran over to Lowe’s this morning…

Lowe’s had all their Christmas stuff out in full force…

Christmas trees are silly expensive at Lowe’s…

It must be the frosted tips or maybe the lights…

We got our artificial Christmas tree for a fraction of that a couple of years ago. We found it on one of those deals and discounts websites after Christmas. And I guess we got a really good deal. I liked this wreath…

We’re thinking about replacing the carpeting in our bedroom with this embossed wood plank laminate flooring in Seaside Chestnut

We want to remake our third floor bedroom to have a coastal cottage feel. Genifer wants to paint our bedroom. Here’s the colors she’s thinking…

And I really liked this rug…

And then we went back to Biggby for coffee

I tried this new Biggby maple waffle breakfast sammich…

It was really good. I would definitely eat it again.

And after some football, it was good evening from Northside…

We watched my Minnesota United host their first home playoff match tonight against Colorado Rapids. Andhe Loons earned their first playoff victory with a 3-0 win over Colorado led by two goals from Kevin Molino…

Take that, Stan Kroenke.

Two years ago, we were in Dallas for Thanksgiving. And I ate the spiciest chicken sammich I have ever eaten. It was so delicious but soooo spicy…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop.

It was just a low-key weekend with all the rain. 😀🌄🌧️🎄☕️🏈⚽️🦕🐔🔥❤️

Two years ago.

Two years ago, I got this “Rocket Drone ZF7 With Folding” to review…

I was so excited to try it out. There’s a big open soccer field behind the school on top of hill at the end of our street. I started flying it and…

With it still hovering in place, I started to record video of my drone’s maiden flight. I touched the left joysticks and the drone started to drift away from me. Frantically, I started moving both joysticks to try to pilot the drone back in my direction. But the controls went completely unresponsive as the drone drifted towards tall trees just on the far side of the soccer goal in the photo above. I started to run after it hoping that if I got closer to it maybe I could regain some control of the drone. But I couldn’t get close enough in time and I watched it hit the top of one of the trees and drop to the floor of Parker Woods on the other side of a ten-foot chain-linked fence…

And it’s still out there somewhere…

Maybe someday I’ll try a different drone. Maybe one from DJI. But probably not any time soon.

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😐🦕❤️

One year ago.

One year ago today, Genifer picked up her new Audi Q3…

We’ve driven her Q3 all around town, out to the Outer Banks… (twice!), over to Indianapolis and up to Michigan. We’ve put just over 11,000 miles on it in the first yeat. It’s been a wonderful vehicle that’s fun to drive and easy to maintain.
She picked a good one!

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕1⃣❤️

Five years ago.

Our beloved bud dog passed away five years ago in the middle of the night…

It’s really hard to believe Milan’s been gone for four years now. There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where we still haven’t missed him in bunches even after all this time. He’s still always in our thoughts each and every day. And I’m so very thankful that a couple of bud dog photos still show up in my Timehop a few times a week…

All of us still miss you so very much, Milan. You helped me through one of the roughest patches of my life and helped me come out the other side. You were always there for me. Always there with me. You were the best friend I’ve ever had. And it breaks our hearts that you’re not still here with us now. You would have loved our big house with our little backyard and our neighborhood with all the walks we take through the woods. You were definitely taken from us far too soon.

Rest in peace, bud dog. I will always love you and miss you
more than words could ever possibly say. 

Milan Fiala: January 5th, 2006 – October 26th, 2015

OctoSquishies!

This showed up in my Timehop today from one year ago

OctoSquishies! #WhereAreMyQuarters? I need to get some OctoSquishies! 😀🐙❤️

None of your teams are playing today.

When I wake up every morning, the first thing I do is look at the weather. Then I doom scroll through the news emails (1440, CNN 5 Things, NYT Morning Briefing, & NPR Daily News) in my inbox really quick. Then I check the Sports 365 app to see what sports are going to be taking place later in the day. I use Sports 365 to help decide what I’m going to wear and if there will be anything interesting to watch later. I checked the app this morning and saw this…

That’s never happened before. Inside Sports 365, I tagged 42 teams and 11 competitions as favourites. Apparently, none of them were playing their respective sports today. Now I have no idea what I’m going to wear today and more importantly what I’m going to watch later. After Sports 365, the next app I look at is my Timehop. These photos were in my Timehop this morning…

And today was my 850th Timehop in a row

My 800th Timehop came when we were on our trip to Duck back in August.

And after all that, I can start my day. 😀🌄📱❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop

He was so cute and so fuzzy in these photos. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕🐾❤️
