The most important thing in Canada is to embrace the winter. After living in the American Southwest for most of my life, it was a big change to live in Edmonton. We have winter for 8 months or so. One really has to learn to enjoy winter activities, and one of them is riding a bike in the winter time.

Today was a productive day in Natasaville. I did my first ever interview for the TV station. CTV Edmonton reporter Dez Melenka and a cameraman came over to record my work I am doing for Canada 150 project! I was initially terrified when Dez contacted me, and had to wait a bit to respond to her regarding the interview. I have never been on a TV news segment before! So, what do I do? I set up time to do it of course!
Basically they came over and let me just talk about the project in my own words. I cannot wait to see it when it airs tomorrow at 6 pm. If you are reading this and have time at 6 pm, check out http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/on-your-street. Prime time baby!
Seriously though, I was way out of my comfort zone, but I did it and feel great about it! Dez found me on Make Something Edmonton website https://www.makesomethingedmonton.ca/ where my Canada 150 paintings is one of the featured projects on the front page! Here is a link to my project https://www.makesomethingedmonton.ca/projects/1532-canada-150-paintings-by-natasa-vretenar-edmonton-a/

If you want to live in Canada, you better embrace winter activities! One of the activities I love to do is snowshoeing.
