We made it to Friday!

The sunrise was pretty this morning…

But then the grey skies started to win again…

There was a pretty deeper blue-grey in the sky this morning just above the horizon…

And by the time we were out on our morning walk, the sun was long gone…

Good morning from Northside…

The very pretty blue-grey in the sky was more pronounced up on top of the hill at the end of our street…

Today was a great day to celebrate. It was Friday. We made it through another week. And this morning, our Edible Arrangement was delivered for Valentine’s Day…

It’s pretty amazing how expensive shipping gets the closer you get to Valentine’s Day especially when it falls on a weekend…

But if it was delivered today, it was free. So here we are…

And our arrangement came with a box of a dozen little cookies…

It looks delicious. We can’t wait to dig into the fruits. And the cookies.

We had grilled cheeses with turkey for lunch. In some circles, they call that a Super Bird. But whatever you call them, grilled cheeses are pretty darn good…

I really like dipping my grilled cheeses in barbeque sauce…

And for dinner, we had an NYPD Pizza party…

NYPD Pizza is sooo good…

Snow bear? Snow mouse…?

Snow hamster?

Good evening from Northside…

Tonight, we finished watching Wanted on Netflix. We had a really good Friday. And especially since it’s the start of a three-day holiday weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

The longest day.

I woke up super extra early this morning and shoveled the snow we got overnight from our sidewalk…

Good morning from Northside…

And good evening from Northside..

Today was a really long day. But I got all my projects finished. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธโค๏ธ

It’s cold outside.

It was really cold this morning…

Good morning from Noerhside…

When we came back from our walk, I noticed my Bombas were on the wrong feet..

The breakfast of champions: Strawberry Toaster Strudels and hot chocolate…

And SURPRISE! It was still snowy this evening…

Good evening from Northside…

We had Sloppy Joseph’s for dinner tonight…

We played in the backyard for a bit…

And then it was back to work while we watched more of Wanted on Netflix.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ›ทโค๏ธ

Winter wonderland.

We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland…

There were perfect sledding conditions on the hill at the end of our street. But I had so much work to do that I didn’t have time to partake. The next time it snows we’re finally going to sled the hill. All afternoon, we could hear kids screaming as they were sliding down the hill. When we went our walk this evening, we could see that the hill had got a lot of love today…

Someone lost their mitten gloves…

Good evening from Northside…

I can’t wait for the next time we get a good snow so we can finally go sledding.
๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ›ทโค๏ธ

Lots of geese.

We work up this morning to more snow…

When we up atop the hill at the end of our street, a pretty big group of geese in their flying V formation flew by in front of us…

And then it was followed by two more Vs, all heading in the same direction…

Interestingly… A group of geese on land is called a gaggle. When they’re in flight, it becomes a skein, team or wedge of geese.

Also, scientists have determined that the V-shaped formation that geese use when migrating serves two important purposes: First, it conserves their energy. Each bird flies slightly above the bird in front of him, resulting in a reduction of wind resistance. The birds take turns being in the front, falling back when they get tired. This lets the geese fly for a long time before they have to stop for rest. The second benefit to the V formation is that it’s easy to keep track of every bird in the group, and may assist with the communication and coordination within the group. Ahhh.. the internet.

Anyway, it was a lot of geese. Good morning from Northside…

Hello moon…

And by this evening, most of our snow had melted again…

Good evening from Northside…

We hadย another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was Asian Sesame Pulled Pork with broccoli and jasmine riceโ€ฆ

Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable. The pulled pork had an amazing Asian glaze and the rice was really good too.

And Genifer made almond flour cupcakes with strawberry frosting…

Cupcakes are always terrific. Good evening from our backyard…

Tonight, we watched In Darkness on Netflix. It was pretty good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Another snowy day.

It was all snowy again this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

And tonight, it was actually still snowy…

Good evening from Northside…

We had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meals. This one was BBQ Cheddar Meatballs with bacon potatoesโ€ฆ

It was another really delicious meal. The meatballs were terrific and the bacon potatoes were really good. But honestly, it felt like something like that could just as easily been made from scratch. And that’s a good thing because maybe we could make this one again. It was really good. We like theย Kroger Prep+Pared Home Chef Express meal kitsย a lot.

And then we went upstairs to try to find a movie to watch…

We watched The Rhythm Section on Amazon Prime. It was not terrible. But our day was pretty good, especially for a Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€โ„๏ธ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

Snowy and not so snowy.

It was very snowy this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

By this evening, all the snow was gone. Good evening from Northside…

We watched some soccer and some basketball. But we just had another really nice lazy, relaxing Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŽˆโ˜•๏ธโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ“บโค๏ธ

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! It was a chilly Christmas in Cincinnati…

And we woke up to a white Christmas…

We got the dogs a bunch of new dog toys and blankets for Christmas…

I took a little video of the dogs coming in from outside to discover all their new toys…

And now the dogs have a very full box of toys…

After the dogs got to play with their toys for a bit, we took them out on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made Magic Middles for breakfast this morning…

Magic Middles are delicious…

After breakfast, we opened our presents and exchanged our gifts. My parents sent us this hilarious 2020 ornament…

A huge thank you so much to my mom & dad for all our wonderful Christmas gifts…

There was a bit of debate over this advent calendar…

I thought we should start at one, count along with the days and end on twenty-five. Genifer thought we should start on twenty-five and countdown to one and end on the star. And you can see who won that debate…

This afternoon we headed up to West Chester to celebrate Christmas with Geri. We took some shrimps, a meat & cheese tray, a whole bunch of dippers and that was our Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful time spending the afternoon with her.

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After the dog’s were done with the freezing cold walk, we watched a bunch of basketball and called it a day. We had a really wonderful Christmas day. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ

Today was all about treats.

There was still a little bit of snow on the ground this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Day 17 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

My work dropped off this holiday care package this afternoon…

It was a pretty great bag stuffed full of all sorts of treats. It was very nice of Grey to do this and hand deliver all these treats.

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we made one of our Lou Malnati’s Chicago-style deep-dish pizza that we got in the mail yesterday from JJVE…

What a delicious pizza! It was such a good pie so cheesy and delicious.
Thanks again, JJVE!

For dessert, we had a couple of little mini cheesecakes that Genifer picked up from Taste of Belgium after she was done having lunch with her coworkers…

Those little cheesecakes were really delicious as well.

And this showed up in the mail for us today…

Thanks again, mom & dad! We love us some pizza. Especially delicious Taft’s pizza! We’ll definitely be putting this to good use very soon. Hopefully, we’ll be able to wait until after Christmas.

Tonight, we watched Ava on Netflix. It was like a female Jason Bourne or John Wick or something. And Mack actually came upstairs and crashed out on the bed while we were watched the movie…

Ava was pretty good. Very action packed.

In my Timehop today, the logo I designed for Cincinnati Public Radio popped up from two years ago. After a lengthy design process, the new logo was finally unveiled and then showed up on Cincinnati Public Radio’s website

Next, it started turning up pretty much everywhere around Cincinnati. Like on their Twitters…

And then it was a 2019 GD USA Awardย winner. And I still think that’s pretty cool. Thank Timehop for letting me relive this treat.

Today was a great day and was all about lotsa of great treats. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ
