Happy Mother's Day

Yesterday we went to the zoo. Jayne finally got up close and personal with his favorite animal, the COW! We even went to the cow milking. We also got to see both tigers up close. One walked right past him. In the pic Jayne is actually standing up. So, that is how big a tiger is compared to Jayne! He didn't like the fish as much this time around. He kept snuggling into my shoulder. Afterward we went to Ikea. We got a new light for the kitchen and one for the downstairs bathroom. Adam put them in this morning and they look really nice. Jayne's first tooth has deffinately popped out of his gums and he has also said his first word, DOG! We had a hard time deciding if it was actually his first word or not (if he knew what he was saying). We finally decided that he does. He only ever says dog when he sees one. It is pretty cute. He will look at Chaucer and say dog. So, we celebrated yesterday because I am working from 2-11 today. I wish all the moms a happy Mother's day : )

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.
