- took a few days off here at home just to catch up and relax
This weekend starts the transition between summer session 1 and 2... meaning... Jon has to work :o( But... the good news is that we leave Monday night for Columbia!! We are both looking forward to visiting since it was Easter the last time Jon was there, and was May at graduation since I've been. It'll be fun to see where things are on the new house and to spend some time on the lake!
Hopefully we'll have some pictures to post from that soon.
And here he is with his latest hobby- classical guitar. True musicians may recognize that the guitar he is playing is in fact acoustic.... however, he's learning classical style and if things go well we may be in the market. He's doing great so far! All those years of piano and band have definitely paid off (though he just said... and I quote, "This is very difficult!"-- he's practicing right now)
And... last but not least... what you've all been waiting for-- updates on Finn. First of all the cat is a mess! During Jon's last guitar lesson he was all over the place... being so naughty... inside Jon's teacher's guitar case, on the refrigerator, running back and forth like a crazy man! It was too funny. We also just last night purchased a mat to place outside his litterbox to catch any litter that's on his paws so he won't track it in the house. Well, we were confused b/c there was still litter being tracked, so just a bit ago we heard him in the litterbox and went to see what happened. Finn finished his business and then ever so carefully stepped out to the side of the mat and walked all the way around it without touching it! He's one smart kitty!
Here is Finn sitting dutifully by the door watching Jon in the hallway of our building.
And here is Finn inside a box with packing paper in it. He loves his boxes!
