”Twas a weekend of good things from afar.
Michiel was in Toronto for the weekend on business and I told him I expected some macarons when he came back, if that was at all possible 😉
He came back and didn’t disappoint, having pistachio and chocolate flavours from two different stores 😁💕🛍
They were quickly tested and enjoyed and also compared to our favourites from Tout.
So together, they were pretty much perfect😉
Also, during his weekend away, Michiel became a permanent resident of Canada! 😄🇨🇦🎉
His papers that needed signing had been in Holland for some time but then we realized they expired and would have to be mailed to us.
They were sent and we prayed they would arrive in time for his trip to Toronto, so that he could use that opportunity to cross the border and have an immigration officer sign them.
They arrived two days prior and we were ever so thankful, not really having time or funds for an unnecessary trip across a border.
He drove to Buffalo the last evening of his trip, only to be told that ‘Sorry, since June the rules changed and we only process those on Tuesdays.’
Inside, I wanted to believe that this was a test of our attitude and the Lord wouldn’t let us receive the papers in time, just to have them refused signage, but it was hard 😬
Mike was at the border for over an hour, just waiting to see if they would do it anyways but then they said, no.
So he decided to drive further into the states and try crossing at another border.
They too said, no it wasn’t possible, but the Lord had someone listening off to the side.
That lady came up after hearing Mike explain the situation to a different agent and said that the rule was ridiculous and she would do it and take the blame if anyone was to get in trouble.
So, he’s officially done paper work and able to live and work in Canada and I got macarons to celebrate that news with… win, win 😉🇨🇦💕
