Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we headed out to Geri’s house for a Fourth of July BBQ. On the way out to the burbs, we stopped at a Walgreens in West Chester. And inside Walgreens, we found a floor stand I designed for Venus featuring Four-Time World Surfing Champion & US Olympic hopeful, Carissa Moore

The floor stand really looked terrific. And the next wave of my Venus displays featuring Carissa Moore are going to be arriving in stores very soon. Be sure to keep an eye out for them. It’s always neat when you see your designs come to life out in the real world.ย Pretty neat stuff!

When we got to Geri’s house, we grilled up a whole bunch of goodness…

YUM! Stuff always tastes so good on the grill even though I left the burgers on the grill a little too long. You can’t beat a Fourth of July cookout.

And then we were back home. Good evening from Northside…

As we settled in for the evening, we got ready to watch some fireworks from our third-floor bedroom window WyzeCam. We’ve been hearing fireworks around us every night for the last two weeks. So we were expecting quite the show tonight…

And we weren’t disappointed…

 

 

 

And here are all the little videos I captured combined into one long video…

And then the fireworks we could see out of our windows were done. We could hear all sorts of fireworks going off all around our house until very early in the morning. We just couldn’t see them.

We hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

Slow down and Memorial Day.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester for a Memorial Day cookout…

I got to work the grill today, and it was the first time I ever grilled on a propane grill…

Propane was just okay. It’s definitely not charcoal. And it took a really long time to cook everything. But the burgers and dogs were delicious! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Domino’s Pizza party!

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to have a Dominos Pizza party with Geri, Cleve, Alyssa and Pippa…

It was good to see everyone. And Dominos Pizza is really good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Social distancing pizza party.

We took delicious Donato’s pizzas and salads out to Geri in West Chester to check on her and make sure she was doing okay in the midst of COVID-19…

She is hanging in there, just like all of us. And the pizzas were delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅ—โค๏ธ

The dingle is in the house.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to have lunch with Geri, Alyssa, Cleve, and Pippa at Dingle House

Dingle House has one of the best fish sammiches around. And somehow, I don’t know that I’ve ever taken a photo of it.

And we dropped our little dingle, Oscar, off at Geri’s so he can stay with grandma while we’re on our trip. He was so excited to be with grandma that he wouldn’t even let me get a “see you later, Oscar” photo. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ชโค๏ธ

Sunday Sunday Sunday.

This morning we got up early to go to get groceries from Kroger but first, we stopped for our Sunday morning Biggby coffee

Today, Genifer got a Hot Golden Honey Oat Milk Latte but she got it without the coffee…

We learned that if you order a latte without the coffee, it’s called a steamer. You really do learn something new every day. I got my Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with a little butterscotch added to it. I get the same thing every single time…

Later, we drove out to West Chester to have lunch at B-Dubs with Geri. I had to get my free snack sized wings for my upcoming birthday. Lunch was really good. I’m not fancy. I really like B-Dubs. And we came home and walked the dogs around the block…

And then we watched a couple more episodes of 11.22.63 on Hulu. But first, we just had to find a place on our own bed…

It was another pretty relaxing Sunday. Just the way we like it. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We exchanged our Christmas presents this morning…

Santa was very good to us. We went over to Genifer’s brother’s house for a little bit before heading out to her mom’s in the afternoon for Christmas dinner and more gifts…

When we got home, we set everything on our dining room table so the dogs wouldn’t get into things they shouldn’t be getting into and it looked like Christmas exploded all over our dining room. What a terrific holiday mess…

We had a really wonderful Christmas in Cincinnati. And we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽโค๏ธ

Sunday afternoon in West Chester.

This morning we went out to the grocery in West Chester and I saw this adorable toy…

The mouse has little cheese inside it. How cute is that? After the grocery, we went out to lunch with Geri at Dingle House. I had the most amazing codwich sammich. It was really good. We hung out with Geri for a little bit. She had a wonderful little Christmas scene set up in her window…

When we got home, we watched the Cowboys lose. Again. It was a really nice Sunday.

Happy birthday, Pippa!

Today was our niece, Pippa’s first birthday…

Happy birthday, Pippa! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‚1โƒฃโค๏ธ

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We’re so very thankful for a great many things today.
Among them is being blessed with amazing family.

Look at that feast…

It was delicious!

We hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
