Free birthday wings!

Happy Saturday! Good morning from Northside…

We ordered Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch this afternoon…

I had a free snack-sized wings for my birthday through their app. We picked up our BDubs out in West Chester and took it over to have lunch with Geri…

BDubs is such good stuff! We don’t have it often enough. And it was great to get to hang out with Geri for the afternoon.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we ate our BDubs chocolate fudge cake…

Ohmigosh. That cake was really good. It was sooo fudgy. I think I’m going to be good on chocolate cake for a while. We watched The Dig on Netflix tonight. I thought the movie was so good. Genifer thought it was just okay. But we could both agree that we had a pretty good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅฎ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Our Thanksgiving.

Our Thanksgiving got off to a overcast and rainy start…

Good morning from Northside…

After the Arsenal won their Europa League match, we drove out to West Chester to have Thanksgiving with Geri. It was just the three of us this year.

Oops… forgot the gravy…

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with Geri. We spent the afternoon with out in West Chester. We helped with her Christmas decorations and watched the Cowboys lose. Again. It was very nice, low-key Thanksgiving.

When we got back to Northside, we took the dogs on a walk…

And good Thanksgiving evening from Northside…

We had a really nice Thanksgiving. We hope everyone had a very nice, and safe Thanksgiving as well. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆƒโค๏ธ

Hello from Northside.

This morning, there were some pretty little grey clouds above the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside…

It was really pretty this morning but it got kind of grey by the evening…

And good evening from Northside…

Later this evening, we ran Oscar and Bear out West Chester to stay with Geri for the weekend. She is going to watch two of our guy’s while we go up to Michigan to visit my parents. On our way back to Northside, we stopped at Walgreens to get a few things for our trip…

When we got home, we packed up some stuff to take with us on our adventure up north tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Our new dehumidifier.

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we worked on reorganizing our basement…

Now we just need more shelves. And we finally got to turn on our new super industrial strength dehumidifier…

If we turned the dehumidifier in too soon, it could have pulled the moisture out the setting concrete and it wouldn’t have cured correctly…

And that would probably have been bad…

But omigosh, I was so excited to finally get to turn this thing on. And it drains straight into our new sump pump. It’s all so excited. We’re hoping the dehumidifier pulls all the moisture out of the air in our basement and eliminates that old musty basement smell. But we finally get to see how it works.

Later, we ventured out to West Chester, and we picked up Sonic for lunch…

We took our Sonic over and had lunch with Geri. Sonic was surprisingly good. We had cheeseburger meals. And Sonic also has corn dogs. I got a couple of corn dogs for a snack later. Gosh, I love corn dogs. And corn dongs can be surprisingly hard to find. The corn dogs from Sonic were really good.

Back in Northside, it’s starting to look a bit like autumn…

It was so gloomy, grey and overcast all day today…

And good evening from Northside…

This evening we planned to watch my Minnesota United play Dallas but the match was postponed due to positive tests for COVID-19. So we watched FC Cincinnati lose 1-0 to Toronto instead. FC|C is really tough to watch play anymore. It seems all they do is defend, eleven guys behind the ball and then park the bus. It makes for really boring soccer. And I’m really surprised they could pull over seven minutes of highlights out of this match.

But other than that, it was a pretty good Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿƒโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

And it’s a low-key Sunday.

Good morning from Northside…

We stopped at the grocery out in West Chester…

Ugh. Those don’t even really sound good. ๐Ÿ˜ But they did have the panda AND train at this Kroger…

We stopped at Skyline for lunch to go…

We took lunch over to Geri’s to visit for a bit. And then it was back home…

Good evening from Northside…

We had a wonderful Sunday. The weekends always go by so fast. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿโค๏ธ

Another good Saturday.

We love our new little side yard…

And we love our backyard fence…

Good morning from Northside…

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester…

We had lunch at Dingle House

They had a peanut butter milk stout from Left Hand that was just out of this world…

Genifer ordered Mike’s pastrami on sour dough…

I had a half-order of their fish and chips…

While we out in West Chester, we visited Geri for a bit, gathered Oscar and Bear to finally bring them back home with us and then we headed back to Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

And this evening, we watched Minnesota United draw with Houston and Louisville City thump Memphis

It was another really good Saturday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

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
