Another Wedding

Another wedding has come and gone, my cousin Greg's. It was the last one for the year, thank God! I love weddings, but every other week is a little much for me. We really had a good time and we remembered Jayne's bowtie : ) Unfortunately it was at the expence of forgeting the gift (picture to right). Jayne was a very good and somewhat quiet for the wedding. We even got a little footage of him walking (cause he's doing that now, I know I really haven't told anyone yet). We also stayed at a hotel for the first time with Jayne. It was a lot of fun. He loved playing in the room and it was an eavening full of laughter. He really liked the pool too. It was the first time we ever brought him into a big pool. We decided that we really need to stay at hotels more often than we have been (once every 4 years). Here are some of the best pics from the wedding and the video of Jayne walking (no sound).

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.
