You're an Eco-Savvy Success

You're an Eco-Savvy Success

Congratulations! You're a real environmental role model, and your actions are making a difference. But are you ready to take the next step? If you haven't already, now is a great time to swap your chemical-based household cleaners for biodegradable, eco-friendly choices. It might seem next to impossible to give up your tried-and-true bottles of glass cleaner, floor polish, and foaming bathroom scrubber, but those old standbys may be doing more harm than good. While the harsh ingredients in many commercial cleansers, sprays and disinfectants are designed to make your home sparkle, they may also contribute to indoor air-pollution and ground-water contamination, as well as aggravate allergies and asthma and increase your family's risk of developing other ailments, from skin irritations to long-term lung problems. For less toxic alternatives, look for brands with an eco-friendly seal of approval. Even better, stock up on organic baking soda, white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, salt and lemons, all of which can be used to whip up germ-bashing, 100 percent natural cleaning aides.

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.
