Welcome to Murray & Sophia's blog!

Here you can follow our life in the Rockies and have a virtual visit to our home. Enjoy!

In November 2005, Sophia moved from the Netherlands to the Rocky Mountains in Canada. The reason? She was getting married to her first and only love, Murray.

At first they lived in the town of Creston BC, but in 2007, they both decided to pack their belongings including four (currently five) cats and settle in a gorgeous house with the best view in the world. It is situated in a 16 acre paradise, a large field and forest bordered by a river in Erickson (6 km from where they lived). They live right next to town, yet rural enough to see bears, deer and raccoons in their very yard!

Once again welcome to our site, make yourself right at home.

We'd love to hear from you, make sure you drop us a line or two!

"No comment"

Image
Of course I know blogging isn't as popular as it was a few years ago... and I haven't posted much lately. However, I found that in the last few years, I haven't received many comments on my blog - yet, I get many personal messages and private comments.

Too much SNOW

Image
Lately it seems I haven't had much inspiration to write in my blog... life in Canada has become "normal" for me and not much has been happening lately - which is a good thing really. However, the winter we've had this year is far from normal for our part of the world.

Mobile Masters Meet Up

Ever since I moved to Canada and left my career behind in the Netherlands, I have been trying to keep up to date with new technologies. One way I chose to stay involved was by volunteering on the online community of Koodo (flanker brand of TELUS Mobility).

Visiting Holland

Because I still see the Netherlands as my (former) home, I usually don't really share my travels...

Finalizing the theater

As promised in the latest post about the theater progress, here is an update to cover the last stages of building our home theater.

No longer per-plex-ed

Image
The blog has been quiet for a little while, but... we have hardly been sitting still these past few months. Murray has been busy finalizing the theater (blog post coming up soon!), but in the meantime, I have worked hard as well, digitizing our entire DVD/Bluray collection.

A year of kitties

A year of cat pictures, finally found a way into my blog.
