Jayne and Chaucer

Chaucer is getting to be a very old dog and his age is getting to him. In an effort to soften the blow if something happens, Adam told Jayne that he should make sure to give chaucer lots of love and say bye-bye to him every time we go somewhere just in case Chaucer is gone when we come back. So in Jayne's simple 2 year old wisdom he led Chaucer to a nice pile of blankets to lay on. Then he brought over a laundry basket and put it over Chaucer and said to him "No bye-bye Chaucer". I can't believe how sweet my little boy is. I think it was a great plan on his part, but I am not sure how well it will work in the end. I especially love how he made sure Chaucer was nice and comfy first. I suppose that helps him to not escape ; )

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.
