The Fall Mix

 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Pump up the VolumeI didn't intentionally set out to make a fall mix for my (at the time) Sportage but this disk has now been my go-to fall music collection for when the leaves start to change. Partly, I suppose, because it's full of melancholy songs and partly because of the time that it was made, fall of 2008 (which was kind of a weird year, all around).

Random ThoughtsI was getting back into my blog, but then I fell into a Netflix coma watching Breaking Bad. I'll have some new stories soon.

Chantelle RantsEdging done. My technique is coming with the angled paintbrush but my ceiling took a few hits. I'm never going to hear the bloody end of it.

Pump up the VolumeI don't listen to top 40 which has the benefit of protecting me from crap like Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda'. Unfortunately, it also means that I miss out on awesomeness like Adele and Amy Winehouse.

Friday Night Amy

Pump up the VolumeFriday nights seem like good nights for Amy... and maybe a vodka martini or two.

Also, I love this video. Who wouldn't want a bunch of brass players just hanging out?!

Just... wow

Pump up the VolumeA friend at work told me to watch the new Nicki Minaj video because it was "basically a porno". How could turn up an offer like that? It was so awful that I'm posting some Nina Simone to get the awful out of my head.

The Back Hall Reno - Part 1

 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Chantelle RantsMy house was built in the 1970s. It has great, solid construction but lacks the aesthetic sense of a lot of the houses being built today. To be fair, I'd rather have a house that's not falling apart rather than a trendy mud-room. I also love the three-level split design of the house as well as the huge deck and backyard.

So aesthetics are something that need to be added. My Dad did a pile of work landscaping the outside a couple of years ago and added a little deck in front of the house. He also added a shower to the downstairs bath and later retiled the floor. He and Jason also added an awning to our deck, last weekend (not to mention a thousand other various projects over the past years we've been in the house).

Jason has been spending the summer on outdoor projects like replacing the steps on the deck.
