Jayne is 2 now and sometimes it seems like he is constantly hurting himself. I love his owie fixer, almost as much as he does. We actually save a lot of money on band aids by having it. A kiss or a band aids makes the owie "feel better" even though they really don't ultimately. Now when Jayne gets hurt he always goes straight for the Owie Fixer, unless a band aid is actually needed of course. We keep the cover in the drawer with his plates and bibs and when he gets an owie we take it out and put the ice pack inside. Unlike the rice packs, which are great for their ability to heat, they use reusable ice packs and it is easy and inexpensive to have many packs on hand. All you really need is 1 cover and you can keep replacing packs as they warm up. They also do not use rice which is one of the highest methane producing plants, so they are a green option, especially compared to using actual ice.

We have many designs at The Crazy Elephant already and more designs are on the sewing pile now. I can only accomplish so much at a time after all. This is a must have item for everyone with children, that works with children, or that has the ability to get hurt. You know where I'm going with this, if you are human, you need one ; )

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.
