Is it February already?

Holy Mackerel.
Where has the time gone?
And what makes mackerels so darn holy?
I'm almost embarrassed to be here. Ya know, after so long and with really no explanation for my inactions except that I've had many other actions that didn't involve the ole' blog.

Would you believe that I grew butterflies?'s what everyone should be planting to save the monarch butterflies.

Would you believe the coach and I grew a kitchen, family, dining?

We were so close to being done with the dirty stuff, but then we had to have some windows replaced in the foyer/front of the house.
Also added some new trim inside the front room for a while, we were practicing "safe sex work area" at the front rooms.

Can you see the shadows of men working in weird and well, yeah it was a weird week. Just trying to keep the dust to one area.

So, that was last week. The painters left at 4:30 on Friday afternoon, just as our first guests for the weekend arrived. Then on Saturday; well, Saturday we had approx. 70 of our closest friends over for a  little get-together.

Fo' serious.

I'm planning on catching up with all of you THIS week.
This will be the first time that I don't have MEN in my house on a daily basis. (FYI: I might finally walk around in my birthday suit---it's been 6 long months!)
Also, my washing machine will be repaired today; it's been out of commission for 17 days. So, if you need me, I'll be in the laundry room; and possibly nekkid.

All the best,
Suz, who is so darn happy.


  1. no more trips to the "city" for laundry?! i bet them will be missing you :)
    the house is fantastical. seriously, better than i could have imagined - although i was having a really hard time imagining it at all! i am so happy that you can be all alone with your pups today!!!
    saturday was AMAZING! {perhaps, still recovering...}

  2. Ooh, Dawn was at your party, too. I can't wait to see all the photos of the finished house. It sounds amazing.
    Happy to see you here again! Now talk Dawn into updating her blog on a regular basis, too, and you two will be fully forgiven. ;)

  3. I loved seeing the pictures of your weekend guests on Facebook... I can't wait for you to give us the room by room detail/photos of your 'new' home.... As you said, it was a long 6 months... BUT---it's almost over (unless you keep finding other things to be replaced or repaired)...

    Your Mackerel is not nearly as HOLY as my Cow!!!!!!

    Have a great week.

  4. So close to the finish line!! I can't even imagine what you are going through. I'm replacing lights and counter tops in my kitchen and the dust is making me crazy!!!

  5. I know it feels good to have it all done!

  6. Can't wait to see the kitchen!!!! 17 days without laundry? Seriously? I would have been homicidal so... good for you.

  7. I can't wait for the grand reveal! I bet you're on cloud nine being so close to being finished with this big renovation project.

  8. i love that you are growing butterflies! milkweed you say? i shall look into that...i want to grow butterflies too! ugh, to be without a washing machine must have sucked!
