What are Mondays always so grey?

It was another overcast and grey Monday morning. And they were already getting to work on our street…

Good morning from Northside…

They were cutting our street this morning…

Y0u kn ow what brightens up a Monday? Grilled cheeses and chicken nuggets…

Guess what? when we took the dogs for their evening walk, it was still overcast…

Good evening from Northside…

When they were working on the street earlier, they must have pushed the dumpster up into the empty lot at the end of our street…

And that’s actually a pretty good thing because it had been creeping further and further out into the street. And we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ”πŸ₯ͺ❀️

A special delivery.

Good morning from Northside…

We heard a delivery truck coming down our street and checked our street-level WyzeCam

We had a special delivery today…

Jeannette ordered a bunch of beers and had them sent to our house for their visit next weekend. We can’t wait to see what she ordered. Special deliveries are fun.

Our second HelloFresh meal this week was One-Pan Bahn Mi Style Chicken Tacos with pickled cucumber & srircha mayo…

Geez. These dinners are just incredible.

Good evening from Northside…

Later, we watched more Game of Thrones. It was a pretty good Thursday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

It’s summer, right?

Sunday was the first day of summer. But today was only 70Β° outside…

I’m not even going to lie, I would take 70Β° year-around if we could get it.

Good morning from Northside…

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had anther meal from HelloFresh. This one was Salmon in a Creamy Dijon Chive Sauce with roasted potato wedges and lemony zucchini…

Our dinners from HelloFresh are just amazing. And this was another delicious meal.

And we had rainbow cake for dessert…

We had another good Tuesday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ½οΈβ€οΈ

This was in my Timehop today…

Fast forward to today and my photos on Google MapsΒ have a few more views…

Back in December, my contributions to Google Maps had 63 million views. And that’s pretty crazy to me.

An afternoon in OtR.

It was a beautiful Saturday morning…

There were a bunch of berries on our side yard sidewalk…

I think our sidewalk is going to be purple for a while…

Good morning from Northside…

We drove down into Over-the-Rhine early this afternoon. The June edition of The City Flea was taking place at Washington Park. We found a parking spot on Central parkway across the street from the new home of FC Cincinnnati, TQL Stadium in the historic West End of Cincinnati…

And there’s already a new bar just across the street from the stadium…

But more on that later. It really is a beautiful stadium…

We walked down to Washington Park to check out The City Flea…

And then we walked back to check out The Pitch Cincy…

Pretty neat place. I bet it is just wall-to-wall people on FC match days.

We drove back up into Northside to have a bourbon slushie at Second Place…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we just hung out on our back patio for the rest of the evening…

We had a pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„βš½οΈπŸ›οΈπŸ»πŸ’‘β€οΈ

A very snowy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! I’m very appreciative to have an actual functioning adult as president again.

It was very snowy again this morning. We got some more snow overnight and we were supposed to get a bunch more snow this afternoon into this evening. We were joking that it wasn’t a holiday during the middle of a pandemic that it would have probably been a snow day and we would have got to stay home…

And so a snowy good morning from Northside…

Before the snow got too bad, we ran over to Skyline to pickup some lunch…

The roads weren’t terrible. But they also weren’t great…

Genifer didn’t yell at me for taking photos with my DJI Osmo Pocket while driving so you know it wasn’t too bad outside yet…

Up in Michigan, they would have just called this another Monday…

Genifer’s Audi Q3 did really well in the snow…

And now it’s Skyline Time!

It was so good. For dessert, we ate our Valentine’s cannolis from Taft’s yesterday…

Shortly after we were done eating, we received a text that Hamilton County was upgraded to a Level 2 Snow Advisory…

Good evening from a very snowy Northside…

We played in the snow in our backyard…

And we watched the snow accumulate on our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

We also watched all six episodes of the series Young Wallander on Netflix. It was pretty good. But the ending was a bit dumb.

Oh… and Michigan basketball is now ranked number three in the country…

We had a really nice President’s Day home from work. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈπŸ“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

We found a new vet.

It’s another grey and overcast Monday…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer had to go into her office today. And this morning our third-floor WyzeCam captured a fire truck on our street for a moment…

We’ve been looking for a new vet because we were getting tired of the one we had been going to up in College Hill. And Mack is still not great in the car. He’s getting better. But he’s still not great. Genifer found Dr. Mike’s Mobile Veterinary Service on the interwebs. And they came right to our house…

They were great! They looked over our guys. Checked out Mack’s ears, Oscar’s cough and knee. Everything was good. They gave us home remedies to try for Mack’s ears. And the allergy medicine the dogs take was a lot cheaper from Dr. Mike. I think we just found a new vet!

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we had vegetable Tikka Marsala for dinner tonight…

It’s so good and tasty. We really like it a lot. And Genifer made deep dish cookies again for dessert with little ice cream party cups…

Tonight, we started watching Lupin on Netflix. And we made it through another Monday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸš’πŸΎπŸ₯£πŸͺ🐻❀️

And this is totally us, especially when we’re working from home…

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. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we ran out to get some Christmas Eve Eve Biggby coffee

We ran around a little bit to do some last minute Christmas shopping…

We got some odds and ends stuff. And a bunch of new dog toys for Oscar & Mack. I also got Mack a new dog bed and Snoopy blanket to go in our studio office where he sleeps a lot. I snuck his new bed upstairs while he was outside…

I showed him his new dog bed and he pretty much spent the rest of the day lounging on it…

While I was hanging out in the studio office with Mack, I decided to check out day 23 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

I think he really likes his new dog bed…

Later, we had a NYPD Pizza hoagie party….

NYPD hoagies are so good. And their fries were even better than normal tonight.

We dragged Mack off his new dog bed to take the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After he got his treats, Mack was right back upstairs, crashed out on his new dog bed…

This evening, we finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix. It was a really good series. We hope they get around to making a third season someday. But it probably won’t be anytime soon.

And Mack was still sleeping on his new dog bed…

We hope everyone had a Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ›οΈπŸΎπŸ₯ͺ🍟❀️

Oh. I also thought these drawings from @crazyheadcomics & @wearyourvoice were really beautiful…

It just reaffirms how blessed we are and how good we have it this Christmas Eve Eve.

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.
