Today sees the completion of a year-long journey to gain Permanent Residency here, in Quebec and, of course, Canada. And the finalizing of one more step along the road to gaining full Citizenship. I am now a legal, permanent resident of Québec and Canada. I started this blog—in part—to provide myself with not only a timeline of events, but also as an outlet in which to share my journey. I have to say, it’s been one hell of a ride but, thankfully, this part is now completed and over. I plan on keeping this blog here for the time being, and to continue sharing posts with you about life here, in Québec—the city and the province—and hope you will continue to stop by and follow along. Je suis une Quebecker!
Just to brighten everyone’s day, as these flowers continue to brighten mine … a feast of African Marigolds from my balcony garden. [click on the images to see full-size.]
From about 4:30 every morning this little vocalist starts singing his heart out, and doesn’t quit till the sun goes down. He’s a song sparrow, in case anyone was wondering, and we’ve named him Caruso. I mean, what else could we call him?
