We've made so much progress on the house. This week we went to Home Depot and asked whether the $2700 quote to replace the front door was reasonable!
And Monday the painting of the front of our house is done (except the door)! I should have taken a before picture but the peach walls and green trim were too hideous to bear (though someone must have really liked it at one time)
Sometimes it is so great to just spend a day at home and catch up on household chores.
I went out viewing dance studios. I'm planning to host a dance event - 2 hours of music on an iPod, a space and room to dance. I'm looking for an affordable, accessible, central location that would be a joy to dance in.
Then TIFF began and Shannon, Justin and I went out for Midnight Madness. We saw JCVD, which was interesting, suspenseful and had a surprisingly good performance from Jean-Claude Van Damme as himself. For coverage (including cool, new vlogs) of the entire festival, check out Shannon the Movie Moxie.
And one of the best home improvements is that we went from a cracked concrete driveway to this lovely stone. It's a little warmer and brighter than Justin and I would normally choose but goes well with the house and is such a vast improvement that I keep peeking out the front window to see it again!
Lol, doesn't it look like the police are coming to get Shannon? Maybe they're just coming to keep her fans away! When we saw them walking down this pathway I totally thought they needed some theme music. Shannon and I saw an amazing Canadian film at TIFF last night, C'est pas mois, je le jure. I'll leave you with the trailer. there's no subtitles, but I think you definitely get the vibe. Enjoy!
