{ This moment } – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Cat in a bowl


About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

    Aw… So beautiful. I have so many photos of our cats sleeping in strange or ridiculously small spaces. We should do a coffee table book. πŸ™‚

      Yes we should… and our Fernand would be the king of silly places! I’ve caught him in shopping bags, in drawers, in laundry baskets, behind my sewing machine… This was really awesome though : The bowl was out after my son raided my plastic cupboard. He just took possession of it!


  2. Awe, how cute! Happy weekend!

    What a beautiful kitty. It’s funny how all cats will find a way to fit into any sized container πŸ™‚ Be well.


    • quiltykanuck says:

      Indeed! He gets into the craziest places. He is a gorgeous creature : Part Maine Coon so huge and SO fluffy! He’s a rescue. Such a sweet addition to our family.

      Thank you for stopping by!

    That is so cute! Is this the same cat that licks the windows?
    Here is mine. My kids decided to wrestle each other. They always have so much fun when they do

    I feel like this would be a perfect picture in an Ikea ad – you know for their “Stromlung Orange Basket.” πŸ˜‰

    Here’s ours – the first ever chick hatched on our farm!: http://walterandlila.wordpress.com/2014/04/11/this-moment-43/

    Have a lovely weekend!

      LOL! Ikea is all about making the most out of small spaces! LOL!!!

      I saw that this morning, so CUTE! We are thinking about getting a few chickens next year. Waiting until both kids are walking so they can help with feed and such. I may have to ask you for advice on getting set up!

    • quiltykanuck says:

      Yes they are and YES we did… Actually got to plant my cold weather greens and a few hardy early beets and radishes. It’s very weird to plant while surrounded by snow. πŸ™‚

      Hope your week-end was lovely as well!
