Where Have I Been?

For a week now I have been struggling with this horrible sore throat. It hasn't been very sore the last few days but the soreness was exchanged for this cough that won't stop. It has not been fun. In the midst of it all we had Easter. We were light on photos, but then I was so exhausted that I could barely keep my eyes open too. Jayne enjoyed hunting down the eggs that the Easter bunny dropped in the house.
That crazy bunny hid them in the silliest places and the one in this photo was the last and hardest for Jayne to find. Thank you Willie Wonka eggs. I got them probably 7 years ago now. They have suction cups, glow in the dark, or hang.
I also got my pot of peppermint from my mom's neighbor. I love peppermint tea and it soothes a sore throat so well. It was good timing since the grocery store was closed and I had used up my tea supply. I am hoping that my cough will go away soon and things can get back to normal. I know that my house would sure appreciate it!

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.
