Sunday Fishing

I got to have an actual relaxing, lazy, nothing much to do kind of Sunday. It was great! Those are few and far between at our house. Meanwhile, Adam and Jayne went fishing with 2 of Jayne's uncles and that is our story for the day.
Jayne is in the middle with his 2 uncles on either side.
Jayne has taken an interest in the Little House in the Big Woods book and was very excited to hear that he was going fishing on lake Pepin, just like Pa! He didn't want to get sand in his shoes though, which is why he is so far back from the water.

They caught 0 fish. Jayne has never actually seen a fish caught in his entire life. Apparently they became hyper intelligent since he was born because we used to catch fish all the time before that. They did get to see this bald eagle catch a fish though.
They even paid a visit to Jayne's Great Grandma that lives near there. She was very happy since she hasn't seen him since he was about 1 1/2...he is 4 1/2 now. Over all they had a great time, even without a fish to show for it. Now they are all planning the next fishing trip and can't wait to go!

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.
