Mother's Day

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 : )

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.
