Happy Mother's Day everyone. I hope everyone had as nice a day as I did. First of all I was lavished with gifts...I mean it, Adam really went all out. First he got me a guitar for Rock Band and new drumsticks and then he gave me a HP TouchSmart tx2z series! It has got to be the coolest laptop ever made!!! You can touch the screen and everything. He said that it is a half mother's day and half congrats on writing an awesome book gift. I can't wait to start using it for Colorsaurus ABC. Adam also made breakfast and dinner, did the dishes, and a little tidying up. He brought us all to Oxbo park zoo too. Jayne had a blast and a deer licked his fingers. He kept walking up to other kids and showing them his hand. I kept explaining a deer licked his hand but the kids just thought it was weird (these are kids up to about 3, they think most everything is weird). Over all it was a nice day : )
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.
