More rays of sunshine

I talked here and here about winning some lovely prints over on Jenny Pearson's blog in the lead-up to the A to Z Challenge, and taking them in to be framed. It's been a while, but I finally collected them today.

Rather than arm-wrestle Ali over whose office they will go in (she'd win, anyway) we decided they needed to go somewhere more accessible, so here they are, hung in the kitchen.

Also, this week we heard that we've passed out citizenship test and have been invited to take the oath of citizenship later this month. Yay!


  1. Congrats congrats, I am very happy for you, you should take pictures from the big event and share them with us :). Your kitchen looks very inviting, should I come for coffee?

  2. Congrats on passing the Citizenship test! Very cool.

  3. Congratulations. I am so happy to welcome you as an official Canadian.

  4. Thanks everyone. Looking forward to being an official Canadian a couple of weeks from now. Will try to take pics to post.

    Unikorna, you are most welcome for coffee any time you're out this way :)

  5. Big congrats! And what a good choice of art-sharing locations, too.

  6. I love the way that picture looks on that vibrantly colored wall. And congratulations on getting the citizenship.

  7. Katy, it's a good spot...right by the table where we eat, so it is highly visible.

    Michael, I wondered if anyone would notice the wall :) We are not afraid of color in our home decorating.

  8. The prints are beautiful! And congratulations on being invited to take the oath of citizenship! Big steps you are taking :-) !

  9. Hi Ian .. that's great news - I'm so pleased the Citizenship has passed off successfully with just the Oath to do - a great relief. Congratulations.

    While the picture looks wonderful doesn't it .. cheers Hilary

  10. The prints look beautiful all framed and hung. Looks perfect on the yellow wall. :)

  11. Teresa, it's a big step, but a logical conclusion to the bigger step we took in uprooting ourselves to come here in the first place. That was scary!

    Hilary, we are very pleased too. That's a big weight off our minds.

    Jean, it was fortuitous, but the colors are perfect against that wall :)

    Katie, thanks, they are indeed beautiful.

  12. Beautiful! What a neat prize. They look good in your kitchen. :)


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
