Well, Adam has not been enjoying his job for some time now and I have really wanted him to find another job. He got a part-time job at Fareway when it opened in Stewartville this past week with the hopes that it would result in a full-time position not less than 3 months from now. Last night we came home to a message from his new boss to come see him and he came back with a full-time position, after working only 3 days! He put in his notice at work and I can't wait for him to be done. It has been a long time since I have seen him so happy going to work and I really think he will like working there.

This also means that we will have health insurance again...which means we will be able to start trying for another baby : ) I'm so glad that he will be somewhere with benefits and that actually cares about their employees. He also won't have to commute anymore. I'm just so excited I can hardly contain it.

Well, I'm pretty much worn out from not being able to sleep (from excitement) so I am going to try and take a nap now.

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.
