September 12, 2014


Sometimes you just never know if a show is going to be completely crazy, or completely amazing. I felt that way when I read about the premise for The Quest, which pairs fantastical storyline and a reality competition. It kind of sounded like Survivor LARP style, and in some ways it is, but it had the premise of that the participant were working towards being the One True Hero. It took me a while to get around to watching it, but I was hooked from the intro, and then by the amazing contestants as well as the characters within the story that brought the world to life. I love every minute of it.


I forgot my camera at the apartment so I am using a photo from the other day. Here Reg is taping plastic over the KD-coloured wainscotting and today we took it down because the room is all painted. We painted the crafts room today and it is going to require two coats thanks to the blue paint. What is it about people painting their rooms blue? This time it's baby blue and still is rough to paint over.

Forgot you camera? Wha? I didn't think that was possible! hehe. And um...I have painted several rooms blue :) I couldn't tell if you were keeping the wainscotting that colour, or going for another? I love the fireplace btw. I can't wait for a total tour!

I know, can you believe it Shannon? I panicked without my camera but got through it until the next day. Yes, the wainscotting is staying that colour for now, makes the room quite bright and cheerful. Isn't that fireplace stunning? We are considering painting the wainscotting to match one day.

I am so glad you enjoyed The Quest so much Shannon. I really wish I could have watched the whole thing with you. What I saw was very impressive and love that they used actors and that the effects were so impressive so you could immerse yourself in this world. :) I really hope they come back with a second season, Reg and I will both be watching.

The wainscotting is definitelly cheerful, I am surprized you kept something so bright!

I'm thrilled to hear you are Reg would watch another season of The Quest. I will keep my ear to the ground for possible renewal news.

Ack! No camera! That's just crazy. I've been there too and it feels so weird not to have camera at hand!

I'm so glad you enjoyed The Quest, Shannon. What a treat when you find something that you just love. Awesome.

I love the description of the paint as KD colour! Here's to some bright and cheerful in the room - and in life! I'm so enjoying watching you guys get settled.
