when we came back from our walk, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the bleeding heart bush was blooming in our yard! yay! it's so nice to see flowers again in our yard!

i have been a member of planet fitness gym for years. if you've ever seen one of their commercials or been in one of their gyms, you know that their slogan is that they are a "judgement free zone." while that may be the case for planet fitness, it is far from the case in our house.
the gyms are currently closed, so quarantine means at-home workouts. i don't mind working out from home, except for one thing . . . the judgement from my furry personal trainer. it's definitely a judgement filled zone instead of a judgement free zone when we're working out. he often glares at us, yells at us, walks over our yoga mats, bats around our weights, and yesterday he even drank most of my water! what a silly kitten!

he surveys the site before projects, oversees and supervises all phases of the project, and does a thorough final inspection when each project is finished. i don't know what we'd do without him!
have a great weekend!

last week i shared one of the many funny videos from the holderness family. their boyz II men parody video about toilet paper was awesome.
since then, i can't get enough of this guy, he's hysterical. his newest video made me laugh because it's an n'sync parody of the song "it's gonna be me" and as someone who grew up in the 90s with boy bands i'm all for this. this guy is great.
have a great day!

a few photos of . . . streaming a straight no chaser concert in our living room for some entertainment, the first time we've ever seen a woodpecker in our front yard, making two mini apple pies to use up some old apples, digging mancala out of the basement and figuring out how to play it on the back porch, and my work-from-home furry quarantine co-worker.

i mentioned last week that people are getting super creative during this quarantine. i recently came across this video on facebook of one guy portraying multiple disney characters during quarantine. i laughed and laughed, then sent this to my disney-loving neighbor katie! so good!

we kicked off the three-day holiday weekend on friday by making easter dessert treats. we made carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and dark chocolate peanut butter eggs. after making the treats, we loaded them up in the car and drove all around to deliver them to our parents and our family friends . . .

it has been several years since we've walked this trail. while walking around the trail we found several little fairy gardens that people set up at the bases of trees. they were cute. a few pictures from our outing . . .

the university where i teach has been getting creative to keep students engaged with the student activities office from a distance during quarantine. they originally planned to have magician michael kent visit campus, but since we're all at home they decided to do the live magic show virtually via youtube live. it was pretty neat to watch and i had to hand it to this magician because it couldn't have been easy to do a live magic show virtually! it was a nice escape for an hour during this crazy time!

people are getting really creative during quarantine, and i'm loving it. one of my co-workers sent me this video of a family singing the song "one day more" from the broadway musical "les mis" with quarantine-themed lyrics. this is, hands down, the best thing i've seen during quarantine. brilliant!

not having to commute to and from work leaves us with extra time for making delicious food. on sunday, we wanted to use up some apples that we had in our kitchen, so we make mini cast-iron skillet apple dutch baby pancakes. they were so good! yum!
