Weddings and Apples

Last night we attended Kris' wedding and it was so beautiful. We really had a great time and made some interesting memories. When we went to the bathroom I put Jayne down so I could go and after got out his diaper. When I turned to get him he was standing at the toilet splashing in the water! Yes I had already flushed btw. The center peices had goldfish in them which was pretty cool. The pic at the top is the chalk pastel portrait that I made for their gift. Pics below.

Today we went to the apple orchard. We got lots of apples and had a lot of fun. We checked out some in the rochester area. Northwood has a lot of fun stuff, like animals and wood cutouts. Pics below.
Jayne IS the apple of our eye

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.
