Soooo Busy!

I have been so busy between My new job and Jayne. I thought I would take a minute to give everyone a little update on my little family : )

Jayne has 2 teeth now and is always getting into everything. He moves around like crazy. We started giving him some solids, mostly Cheerios. The 2 of us brought his Auntie Nicole to the zoo last Monday. Jayne even got to see a baby cow and pet a goat. He had lots of fun.

Adam and I are working on a garden. We don't have much lawn, so we are doing it in pots along the side of the driveway. I will post pics when we get it all set up. We did 2 hanging baskets, 1 romaine letuce and 1 spinach. Turns out they are too heavy for the shepard hook so they are on the ground. We are also going to have 1 pot of strawberries, 1 carotts and 2 with tomatoes. The tomatoes and strawberries have already sprouted inside so those will just get transplanted.
My friend Sarah asked me to be in her wedding which is VERY exciting. We also got a Wii and Wii Fit. We really like it and spend a lot of time playing with it. I guess that is about all for right now. Talk to you all the next time I get a chance : )

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.
