July 19, 2016


Yesterday was electrician day. He installed pot lights in the spare room and in the furnace area too. It's such a relief. I have been scared of the ceiling light bulbs since we moved in - too exposed and too low for a house with a tall person in it and tall people who visit! This feels so much safer. I wish we'd thought to get one in the cubby at the same time. Of course, the cubby is piled high with everything from the rest of the basement. The worst part of the day was Shibumi coming up the stairs covered in so much drywall dust she looked like a ghost! It looks like #leaveittoshibumi goes right alongside #shibumiwins!


I've been continuing to work on getting everything settled now I'm going through stationary stuff, and wow.... that is definitely something that I get a little magpie-like about because it piles up. I was able to get it mostly to a good amount of stuff, although now I'm stumped on artwork. But, I'm still moving forward so that's a good thing!


Got everything packed away for the big sale and even went to the bank to get change which felt weird after not doing retail for so long. Thank goodness the sale doesn't start until 2 pm. I have to be there at noon but still. No morning pressure!

Wow, Shannon, look at all that colour! Yay you for continuing to make such great progress. Your place is really coming along so beautiful. It's a great home and feels so like you!

Wow, Suzie, that looks so impressive, creative and professional! What day is the sale? Thank goodness it's at a time that's not way too early! I hope it goes wonderfully well.

Sounds like things are going great with the construction Jamie and yay for taller ceilings! Did you get a picture of Shibumi like that? Oh my goodness, that would be cute.

Shannon, you are are doing awesome! And yes, look at all those colours, LOL.

Sale is in a couple of hours!

hah, I didn't even realize how colourful that picture was! I'm thankful to feel like quite near the end of the unpack/organize :)

So exciting to see the lights going in downstairs Jamie, that sounds like a huge relief. They look a lot like the lights I have here! It's so exciting to see things shaping up.

I am so excited for you Suzie, I hope the sale went really well. How exciting to have everything waiting to go and no morning pressure either. I can't wait to hear all about it.
