Pandas but no Ice Bear.

Good morning from Northside…

Ice Bear must have been rescued from the claw machine…

The pandas and the trains were back in stock…

And there were these pandas too…

Good evening from Northside…

And there was a really, big almost full moon tonight…

It was another really nice Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ»β€β„οΈπŸΌπŸ₯ͺπŸŒ”β€οΈ

A rainy Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a pretty low-key, overcast, rainy Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Sunday, March 14th.

Today was Pi Day (3.14) so we went to Taft’s for pizza pie…

Sunday, March 7th.

The dogs found a little patch of sunlight in our front bedroom…

Michigan lost to Sparty to end their championship regular season. The Wolverines first game of the Big Ten Tournament will be on Friday at 11:30am.

Around 10pm, we were watching the NBA All-Star Game on TNT and our lost our power. Apparently, all of Northside lost power…

Genifer got a text from the power company that said a car hit something that knocked out power to the entire neighborhood. I woke up around 1am and thankfully, our power was back on. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ€πŸ”¦β€οΈ

The Hi-Mark hits the mark.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery…

And we stopped for Saturday morning coffee…

This afternoon we ventured over to the East End of Cincinnati…

We met our friends Ben and Mehwish at The Hi-Mark

We had so much fun getting to hang out for a bit…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a very fun Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ»β€β„οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ”πŸŸβ™₯️

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

I thought Ice Bear had been pulled out of the claw machine…

But he was just moved from the front corner to the back corner. poor guy…

They were still out of pandas and trains…

But there were still plenty of Valentine’s Day balloons…

Lotsa balloons…

Cincinnati was expecting a big winter storm starting later in the afternoon. And that made the check-out lines really long…

And we stopped for coffees…

Arsenal smacked around Leeds United, 4-2. And Michigan was finally back from their three week COVID pause and they had to play away to Wisconsin…

And BOOM! They didn’t miss a beat…

After the Michigan game, we went over to Taft’s for pizza…

We tried Taft’s newest beer, Hazy Cabana Juice

It was really good. We got some loaded tots…

Very blurry tots. And we got a pepperoni, sausage and mushroom pizza…

Taft’s had a Valentine’s Day special with a heart-shaped pizza and cannoli. We didn’t get the special deal but they had extra cannoli and gave us a couple…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we hung out and had a few drinks and watched Mavs basketball…

It probably wasn’t the world’s most romantic Valentine’s Day but it was a really great Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜οΈπŸ•πŸ€β€οΈ

Superb Owl Sunday.

Happy Superb Owl Sunday!

We were up super early this morning, even before the sunrise…

Good morning from Northside…

And we were off to run over the the grocery…

We always go to the grocery early, but we wanted to get over extra early this morning. We thought it might start to get a bit nutty with people stocking up on supplies for The Big Gameβ„’…

It looked like Ice Bear was rescued from the claw machine…

He used to be right where the zebra is now. I hope he went to a good home…

Both the panda and the train were out of stick in the International Aisle…

And there were still a few balloons left but no owl balloons…

Just lots and lots of hearts…

As is tradition, we stopped for coffee after the grocery…

Here’s another photo of Genifer’s new desk. She moved it over in front of the window…

It looks really nice in there.

And good evening from Northside…

I was cheering for Tom Brady in The Big Gameβ„’…

And there you go. We had a whole bunch of chip and dippers while we watched the game. It was a pretty great Superb Bowl Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β˜•οΈπŸ¦‰πŸˆπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Happy Saturday!

It’s Saturday! Happy Saturday!

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

And Ice Bear was still locked inside the claw grab machine…

And there was only one panda and the trains were all sold out…

We always liked 21st Amendment’s Hell or High Watermelon. But we’ve never seen Hell or High Mango before. We’ll have to give it a try sometime…

And we saw this M-43 NE IPA from Old Nation Brewing in Williamston, Michigan over on the other side of Lansing…

I’d never really heard of One Nation Brewing or Williamston before. There were still some football balloons before next weekend’s Superb Owl big game…

And there were some Valentine’s Day balloons…

Bunches and bunches of Valentine’s Day balloons…

We stopped at Biggby for coffee…

And we had a BOGO…

We’re saving our Christmas Biggby gift cards for when we don’t have a free one…

Mmmmm… Biggby…

Arsenal played a nil-nil draw with United. And Xavier resumed their season, picking up right where they left off with a 13 point win at Butler.

Good evening from Northside…

And later it started snowing…

It started snowing kind of a lot for us. We were watching the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We watched The White Tiger on Netflix and then started season one of Unit 42. The White Tiger was pretty good and Unit 42 is just pretty okay. And that was our Saturday It was a pretty happy Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽˆβ˜•οΈβ„οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

A cold & snowy Saturday.

It was a could and snowy morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We went over to the grocery this morning. It counts as our Saturday activity…

Both the panda and train were on the shelf today…

And the football balloons still dominated the balloons…

And then we got coffees from Mad Llama

JAVA WHIPS!

After that we were pretty lazy…

We still had some flurries this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

You can see the snowflakes on Mack’s head…

We had a Kroger flatbread pizza for lunch with Caesar salad. It was really good. Somehow, I didn’t take a photo of it. I don’t remember what we had for dinner.

But we had tiramisu for dessert…

Michigan got thumped by Minnesota. And we watched Outside the Wire on Netflix. It was pretty good. We had another good pandemic Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ€πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

The last Saturday before Christmas.

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery store this morning…

Jell-O just upped the jello game with Jell-O Play…

These might have been around for a while but they’re new to me. Both panda and the train were on the shelf in the international aisle today…

Check out the old-skool Doritos packaging…

And Kroger didn’t have any special balloons today…

What the heck?! After we were done at the grocery, we headed to Biggby for coffee

Day 19 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We were pretty lazy when we got home…

I don’t know why I found this so funny…

It was just the open bag of sugar in a tupperware container but the sugar was still in the bag and I thought that was really funny. But I’m weird… so, yeah.

I got this little serving of full-cooked shrimps at the grocery and ate them for lunch. Geri found this super extra spicy cocktail sauce. It’s so good. Such horseradishy goodness…

The shrimp are just a delivery vehicle to get the spicy cocktail sauce into my mouth.

Good evening from Northside…

We made some White Russian drinks this evening…

And Oscar was just like, “Are we going to go upstairs any time soon?”

Sorry, buddy. We had another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ›οΈβ˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ¦πŸ₯ƒβ€οΈ
