March 24, 2012


I had such a good time putting on my superhero sidekick boots and supporting Shannon in her Shannon versus the Stuff adventure! Yesterday was about tackling the paper and Shannon powered through it with decisiveness and verve.



The Stuff gets Stuffed! At the end of a night of attacking the stuff and with Jamie's superhero sidekick help I got ALL of my boxes from the move unpack and surprizingly 'the paper' look up way less space than I expected. I still have some more sorting to do, everything is officially unpacked, I know what I want to keep and what I don't and I have the place and space to sort it all. The battle continues but I do feel like I won the war!

Under Our Willow Tree


After waiting two years for a chance to paint the front of our deck, we finally had three warm days in a row without rain before our plants come up in the front of our house to go for it. During the weirdly warm weather, every day after work Reg came home and we went out and worked on it. This is major for us, especially because we will be selling the house in just over a year.

A huge big golden star for us! So glad we can finally cross that "to do" off our list.

Oh it was totally home improvement days and making things pretty time! It's wild when the themes of our day play together!

Your deck looks awesome Suzie! It must be so thrilled to have that off the to do's! Woohoo!

And Thank you Jamie so much for your superhero sidekick help on The Stuff!!

Wow, that is amazing when a theme emerges like that! Justin and I are joining the "home work" today, making some progress and change in our basement. I'm sure there will be pictures to come!

Shannon, wow, that picture looks AWESOME!! You made an amazing amount of progress after I left. I can't wait to see your video! Every box unpacked; that is a huge accomplishment. Way to go!

Suzie, I'm so glad the weather opened up an opportunity for you guys! The deck looks great. I know there are so many variables but I'm holding great hope for the next move for you both!

Suzie Ridler said...

You two are a superpower duo! I am absolutely impressed, wow, you both helped with the war against stuff. There will be future battles but OMG, what a difference!

Yes, looks like we are all working on our homes, it's true! Wow Jamie, yes, take photos, so curious to hear what you are doing to your basement.

Thank you both so much, this has been a big stressor for us, the damn deck and now it's done! So glad you like how it looks, we love that colour.

I appreciate that, I'm so nervous about our next move. Scared, to be honest. I really hope we find something that is more than just liveable.

Suzie, you've always created a truly lovely home. It's a gift you have and I know you will bring that with you wherever you go. I believe.

Suzie Ridler said...

Aww... Thanks Jamie. I appreciate that. :) I do loving making a space a home.

Shannon, Reg and I think you look totally adorable in Jamie's photo!
