October 29, 2013


You just never know when you're going to find art you like. Justin and I went to Canadian Tire for an air conditioner cover, light bulbs and Command hooks and there was this fetching piece of a colourful cow. I just loved it - and from the response on Facebook, I'm not the only one.


I know I'm trying really hard not to get hung up on getting rooted to things like this, but that doesn't mean I wasn't thrilled to randomly see yesterday that I'm listed on Goodreads as their #118th Top Reviewer. I think it's from the pool of folks in Canada, and may just be for this month, but I don't care about the details I'm just thrilled to see it!  Totally a highlight of an otherwise extremely trying day.  Books for the win, literally.


It has been soooooooooo long since I have had my hair cut! I went in for the cut and colour deal and asked for a lot of the old layers to be taken out. I plan on growing my hair over the winter so I needed something low maintenance, including the colour. It is a little dark but she assured me it will lighten over time which is fine. I really like it so far. Hopefully I take a photo I like with my new do soon.

Can't wait to see your new do, Suzie! How beautiful to go dark as the season darkens too! Very witchy :)

Congratulations, Shannon! Wow, that is SO awesome! Clearly one of the things that draws you into this world is you are so GOOD at it! What a wonderful acknowledgement.

You're inspiring me to "read a book"! (I'm hearing a voice in my head. Is it The Tick? Yes, right?)

Suzie Ridler said...

Thanks Jamie! It's actually REALLY dark which I didn't ask for but hey, I'll embrace it as witchy, totally. Hope I can get a decent shot of it today.

Shannon, that is the coolest! You are good at it Shannon and I love that people realize that. That's amazing.

Yes, that is from The Tick Jamie! I am totally impressed!

That cow is amazing, so vibrant and alive, I love it.

Awesome art spotting Jamie, and I love that other people loved it too! What a wonderful way to share :)

YAY to getting to your hair cut Suzie, that's awesome to get back there and I know it makes a big difference for you. I'm very curious to see the colour!

Hehe, I think the top reviewers is just based on volume of reviews (over quality), but I'll take it either way :)

I'm glad Suzie knew it was The Tick because I was at a loss for the quote! hehe
