November 17, 2014


I'm so glad that Shannon and I got out to the Value Village pre-sale for club members yesterday! I came home with clothes (in fact I filmed today's video in that top shirt there, LOL), that wonderful black watering can and behind it youc an see my black owl planter. I put one of Shannon's plant in it and it almost looks like wings! 


I finally finished reading The Haunting of Hill House! That one took me quite a quite, 2 library sign outs (thank goodness for no waitlist). This whole more-actively-reading-and-being-engaged means it takes quite a bit longer to read a book. I almost wrote "get through" a book. That might be the difference between the speed and focus I used to read, and what I seem to be getting up to now!


I had the most amazing day yesterday! I loved going out to Value Village for the big sale (you can see my haul here) and we also went to check out a D&D gaming demo at our local comic book store. (I love being able to write that.) I have never really played it so the demo was incredibly helpful. Reg and I signed up to try it out next week. Overall? An awesome weekend.

Wow, Suzie, that's so much fun. How cool to be a part of something like that. It's amazing what you both have been up to! Love the Value Village haul!! I'm amazed by the stuff you found - so in your zone!

Yay for VV Sale! omg Jamie! I have to check out how my plant looks with the owl, that is so cool! Can you imagine if owls had 2 sets of wings? That would be wild. I see that our colours almost switched this shop, my pile totally looks like it could be yours!

Wow, I didn't know they do D&D demos, that is so smart - it certainly isn't an instinctual game. I am so glad you had so much fun at Value Village, it looks like all of us enjoy that this weekend!

Another late add from me :)

Look at all the VV goodies! I am so glad you both got to go to the sale!!! And yay to Shannon's plant looking like it has wings.

Shannon, that's great you got through the book but I know there were timing issues for reading it and yes, taking notes and paying close attention to details definitely means it takes more time. Did you like the book?

Yes, we are so lucky to have this shop close by. It's been lots of fun and I can't believe I am going to play next week. I find it so intimidating but seeing newbies play helped me a bit.

I think it's so cool that you read this book, Shannon, and with commitment too :) The movie still scares me!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I meant to say it would be too scary for me! hehe

And you're right, Shannon, look at all those pinks and blues!
