i'm not feeling to great this week, so these flowers on the back porch are cheering me up. the flowers are from ryan's parents from easter sunday. the containers were a christmas gift from someone at work. they're labeled herb containers, but worked perfectly for the pansies!

now that the weather is warming up, there are more birds in our yard than ever before. they are especially noisy in the early morning when the sun is coming up. over the weekend i rolled over and found leko looking out the window at the birdies with his tail resting on ryan's head!

we kicked off the long easter holiday weekend by taking leko to the vet for his annual check up. nothing was wrong, we just like him to get checked out each year. when we make our annual trip to the vet, we always put him on his little harness/leash and then in his kitty taxi just to ensure that he's extra safe and can't escape.
he did great at the vet's office and got a clean bill of health. yay!
on the car ride home, he was begging to sit on my lap which is something he used to do regularly in the car when he was younger. we let him out and he was fascinated by looking out the window and watching ryan drive.
when we safely came to a stop, ryan snapped a few pictures on his phone. our little explorer kitten was so happy to be out of the taxi and checking out his chauffeur and chariot. as soon as we got home he knew it was time to go inside and walked himself right back into his taxi for us to safely carry him back into the house. he's so smart!
when we zoomed into the second picture we saw that he stuck his tongue out! so cute!

as bon jovi sings . . . "woah, we're half way there!"
earlier this week marked 20 weeks so we celebrated with the only thing that seemed fitting: ben & jerry's "half baked" ice cream.
we also got to see baby's cute little profile and foot at our 20 week ultrasound!

on friday, our local philharmonic spent the day at the university where we work. ryan had a long day filled with the load in, workshops, master classes, rehearsal, the show, and loading out. he did a great job with the show! way to go, ryan!

we were using an old bin to carry some things around from room to room and realized that we didn't know where leko went. we turned around to find that he claimed the bin as his new bed for the afternoon. what a silly kitten!

i was sitting in the glider chair the other day and leko jumped up on the chair with me. i thought it was so sweet that he was going to sit on my lap . . . nope! he walked around me, nestled his way between my back and the chair, and proceeded to kick me off with his feet! how rude!
when i got off the chair he looked up at me like he was king of the chair. mind you, he has never once sat in this chair in all the time we've owned it. i had to find another place to sit!

a few weeks ago, when i was reupholstering chairs, i mentioned that ryan and i were helping a student at the university with the set and lighting for her senior capstone show.
the show revolved around a confessional booth in a church so we helped piece together things for her to make a little set. we also had some fun with the lighting too to make it look like a church with stained glass windows.
it was fun to help her with her show and it turned out great!

on saturday we had a styx tribute band perform at the theatre called "best of times" and i'll be the first to admit that i didn't think i knew many styx songs. during the show, i realized that i did recognize several songs. it was a good show and the audience loved it!
you can see some of my photos from the show on the theatre's facebook page here.

happy friday and happy april! i'm not a fan of april fools day jokes/pranks at all, so i'm hoping that everyone is kind today. i'm hoping that mother nature stops playing jokes on us and finally commits to nice spring weather because i'm really sick of the colder winter-like weather. leko can't wait to get back out onto his screen porch!
