Yesterday was a lovely day, and today looks just as promising. This is the part of Spring I love the most — when the trees are still getting all their leaves and it’s green in a very delicate way. Grass is green now, and looks very lush and juicy … really tasty, if I were a cow or a sheep.
We went out without any plan … just to enjoy the day. The clouds were all puffed up, and made a pretty backdrop to all pictures. We drove through Irving Nature Park, just outside the city. This was one of the only furry friends I met.
When we got back home, I found a pleasant surprise in our mailbox! My renewed Permanent Resident Card had arrived! Just like that, in an envelope … I didn’t even have to sign for it. It has taken ages. Guess the workload has increased at Immigrations, and on top of that, I’d missed to tick one box in the first round. Was expecting having to go to Fredericton to pick it up. Last time, it was rather complicated, and a lot of signing involved. They must have decided to simplify their procedures.
This card works basically as a passport, since I’m not a citizen. It wasn’t like I was desperate to travel abroad — it’s just that it feels so good to have everything in order, so I know I can if I want to.
This guy was standing there, staring at me as I was taking the other picture 🙂
