Special deliveries!

When we woke up this morning, we found Northside got a dusting of snow…

But there wasn’t much snow on the hill at the end of our street…

Time for Lego City Advent Calendar day 15…

Genifer ordered Chipotle delivery for lunch….

Chipotle was delicious. I hadn’t had Chipotle in forever.

Both Arsenal and Leicester played at the same time this afternoon. I kept an eye on both of the matches while I was working…

And both of my teams lost. Arsenal is really in a death spiral right now.

We got a couple of special deliveries today. The first package was from my parents…

And there was a wonderful box of Christmas cookies in their package…

There were so many delicious cookies in that box. We cant wait to try them all. And now we also have presents under our tree…

Thanks, mom & dad! Our second package was from TastesOfChicago.com

And inside were two Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas…

And two huuuuge chocolate chip cookies…

Thanks, JJVE! We can’t wait to try our pizzas and those cookies look terrific!

Later, we took the dogs around the block. It was kind of misty outside this evening…

We couldn’t even see the hill across the way on the other side of the highway…

The hill was just barely visible…

Good evening from Northside…

Today is my Timehop was this photo…

It’s interesting that when I saw this photo my mind went to a completely different place when I saw animal mask than when I saw this originally. And there was this one too…

That would have been the best white elephant gift ever. To this day, I still kick myself for not buying it.

Hi Oscar. He’s so fuzzy!

We had a great Wednesday. Thank you again for the wonderful Christmas gifts.

Hello, December.

Today was December 1st. How crazy is that? It must have kept snowing overnight because we woke up to winter wonderland…

And a snowy good morning from Northside…

Brrr. I bought three Lego City Advent Calendars a while back. I bought on one for me and one for our niece and one for our nephew out in Boston. I forgot that they were still sitting on the sofa in our studio, and just mailed them out the day after Thanksgiving. Because December really snuck up on me. Violette and Edgerton… your Lego Advent Calendars are on their way. They’ll be there just as soon as USPS finally decides to deliver them. I paid to have them delivered today. But the tracking number says they are still in Cincinnati somehow.

Anyway, I finally got the start my Lego City Advent Calendar today…

And here is Lego City Advent Calendar day one…

A Lego City Advent Calendar. How cool is that? I think Lego anything is pretty dang awesome.

I started working this morning. I had just finished a hour long meeting and a little after 10am all of a sudden, our power went out….

You don’t really realize how much of your work depends on power until you don’t have it. Obviously, there wasn’t any internet. And my work MacBook is a bit older and the battery life isn’t super. So by 11:30am, I was pretty much staring out the window, waiting for the power to come back on.

The energy company’s website said it wouldn’t be back on before 1:30pm. Eventually, we ventured out to go out to pick up something for lunch and decided on Wendy’s…

We got home and started eating our Wendy’s and the power came back on a little before 2pm…

Thank goodness for electricity!

It looks like people got some good sledding in on the hill at the end of our street…

We should have gone sledding while we were waiting for power to come back on.

Good evening from Northside…

We ate leftover Wendy’s chicken nuggets for dinner. And later, we watched Holidate on Netflix. It was super cute. It’s still hard to believe it’s December 1st.

Today was also my 900th Timehop in a row…

And this guy was in my Timehop today…

Pretty fitting for December 1st. It is the season. It was a pretty good day, even without power. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ”πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Four years ago.

Four years ago, we ventured out to check out Northside on one of the snowiest days of the year. (Remember when we used to get snow?) And we visited Northside Yacht Club and Urban Artifact for the first time…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

Is this our winter?

Winter finally decided to show up this morning and gave up a dusting of snow…

So far, our winter has been pretty mild. It’s just been really grey and rainy. This is our first snow of the year. And I’d be fine if it was our last snow of the year too. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

Today was really COLD!

It was really cold today. I’m pretty sure it was the coldest day of the year so far…

And it started snowing when we were out walking the dogs tonight…

Brrrrr! πŸ₯ΆπŸŒ¨οΈβ„️❀️

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

Meteorologists were predicting that Cincinnati would get a “wintery mix” starting at 6pm tonight. And they weren’t very far off for once. It started snowing right around 6:15. We watched the snow fall from our third-floor WyzeCam

It’ll be interesting to see what it looks like when we wake up in the morning…

Brrrr. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

UPDATE: And I forgot to take a photo of the snow in the morning. But I’m guessing, it looked quite a bit like this.

Winter wonderland.

This morning we woke up to a bit of a winter wonderland…

Brrr. πŸ˜€β„οΈβ€οΈ

The first snow of Autumn.

The rain turned to snow just before we were about to take the dogs on a walk…

When we got to hill at the end of our street, the snow had started to accumulate…

Nothing like a little pre-Thanksgiving snow. πŸ˜•πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

A wintery Sunday.

It was cold and a bit snowy today in Northside…

By the afternoon, we had a little snow on the ground again…

We didn’t do a dang thing today and it was wonderful. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸŒ²β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

We got a little dusting of snow again this evening. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ
