It's Coming Along

We have really done a lot to the house since we first bought it. I thought I would share some of the pics of what we have done. The kitchen was by far our biggest project this year and I think it really turned out great : )

1. This is the kitchen on the day we moved in.

2. This is the kitchen after we refinished the cabinets and painted. We also put up a new light fixture and under cabinet lighting.

3. The big gray section is our movie screen and we painted and put up curtains in the living room.

4. We painted the downstairs and turned it into a play room. We aren't done yet. We are going to do the same effect on the paneling as we did in the hallway.

5. We painted the bathroom, put in a new floor, and replaced the mismatched toilet. I also put up wallpaper frogs.
6. You can sort of see the new front door we put in. The old one was a dark wood door. We painted and on the stripes of the paneling we did the same color (though it looks differant in the pic). Every other stripe is satin paint and the others are semi-gloss. It really gives a nice and subtle effect.

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.

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.

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.
