Last night a group of punk kids where sliding down our driveway (the snow stuck for the first time). That wasn't so bad. Then they started to throw snowballs at our house which made Chaucer start barking and woke up Jayne. Adam finally went out to get rid of them. He said the oldest was probably 12 and the youngest was probably 5. He brought his whip out and cracked it which scared the crap out of them and proceeded to tell them the circumstances inside the house. They said they were sorry and Adam said they weren't because they were still here and cracked the whip again. He said a couple of the younger ones were crying as they all ran away. Adam's so protective of us. He's our hero getting rid of those kids. He went out again after they were gone and it turned out they had been pouring water on the end of our driveway to make it easier to slide on. Great for them but we don't want our car to slide down it. We have a very steep driveway. Hopefully they don't come back. Happy thanksgiving everyone.

Stupid kids... But you also have to remember that they don't realize how stupid some of their decisions are... But I'm not excusing them.

I started laughing really hard when I read that Adam brought out the whip!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
