Being Thankful

Thanksgiving day is upon us and the time certainly has gone quickly. On this day for being thankful I thought I would share the things that I am thankful for. I am thankful to have a very sweet new dog who came into our life when our empty family dog position was feeling particularily empty. I am thankful for my very bright little boy who helps me appreciate all the little things in life and has become very sweet and compassionate. I am thankful for my warm house and all the good food that we always have to eat. I am thankful for our year with out spending without which we could not have cut so much time off of our "big plan". And last but not least, I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband, someone I can confide in and share all my deepest darkest secrets with, someone that understands me like no one else can, some one that I can stay up giggling with till past 2am even though we are tired and have a busy thankgiving in the morning. I love my family and my life so much even though there are bumps in the road sometimes, I would never wish it any other way. On this thanksgiving day I wish everyone a long list of things to be grateful for and safe travel for what will hopefully be a happy day for all.

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.
