Life, love and language


Here we are, nine months down the road, long enough to have produced another human being, and I’m back at my blog once more, perhaps more consistently this time around?  In this time we have passed our driving tests, arranged our SIM numbers, signed up for Alberta Health Care and, quite unexpectedly, received Blue Cross cards as well.  Although we had spent 6 months at a time in Calgary during the wait for Permanent Residence, this is the first fall we have been here, our first Thanksgiving, and, coming up, our first Halloween. Despite this, I have easily and almost imperceptibly taken on the mantle of Canadian and feel perfectly at home in this beautiful country.  Right now the 10 cm of snow we had last week has all but vanished and a gentle rain is falling.  The trees, perhaps taken by surprise by the early snowfall have yet to drop their leaves in our yard and I wait patiently for them to give up their load so that I can use the leaves to protect my garden during the cold winter months.
