March 22, 2014


It was great to head out for lunch with my friend Annabel yesterday. As soon as I'm downtown though I want to run a million errands! Yesterday I got a couple of wonderful rings that I am so excited about. I also just loved this retro map of how the subway used to look - very cool!


It was so awesome to get caught up on this weeks episodes of The Voice, although I think the recap show was the most fun as after that they really quickly start reducing the contestants. It took a bit longer to get into this season, but I already feel strongly about so many of the people on the show - and the coaches too!


Are you bored yet? I am! Yesterday I tackled all my glasses, mugs, plates… Put around 1/3 of them out into another room to prep them for storage. I did four coats of paint because these cupboards really needed it and would have the most impact. I also painted the shelves. Then I cleaned down all the outsides of the cupboards and will be doing touch ups tomorrow. I am not doing all the shelves but most of them are now done. Next is putting stuff away and cleaning up. Ugh! That was NOT easy but they say kitchens sell houses and mine is going to be PRISTINE!

Wow, Suzie, that is so much work. I have no doubt it's going to look awesome. When are you planning to start showing the house?

I am so enjoying watching The Voice! As soon as an episode finishes, I'm looking forward to the next!

That is so cool to see the old Yonge Subway line Jamie! And I am sure I would do the same thing, trying to get as much done as I could. Two more rings is awesome! People love to check out your jewellery in your videos Jamie, such a wonderful way to celebrate your love and admiration of beautiful things.

Great to hear you are warming up to The Voice Shannon. :)

Thanks Jamie! We're so close to having this done. I still have to paint the upstairs bathroom and part of Reg's den but we're getting closer. We want the house to be on the market by the end of April.

Wow that poster of the subway is so cool Jamie! Amazing how different it is over the years, but I so still recognize the TTC Style.

Wow, that's so much work Suzie and you are so committed to the kitchen I know it's going to be (or probably already is) looking great!!
