It's beginning to feel a little like ...

A short update. There is definitely some Christmas spirit in the air these days it seems. Lots of crowds out shopping, decorations popping up everywhere, Christmas cards coming in the mail. I am home right now because we are getting our new oil tank installed this morning. Yeah, we have been without much heat for almost a week now. I will be happy to go back to regular heat tonight. Been heating the house with electric heaters but they can really only heat one room at a time. And of course this weekend we had really cold weather as well.The low tonight was 13F (-10.5C). Brrrr.

Oh well. Hopefully by tonight most of this will be over and back to normal. Still have to fight with the insurance company over some details but other than that we should be ok.

In preparation for Christmas I am doing fairly ok. I have all of my Christmas cards done. Most of my international ones went out in the middle/end of last week. Finished my US/Canada ones over the weekend so most of those should be mailed very soon. I ordered Christmas stamps online but they haven't come yet so I am waiting for that. Also packed up all my gifts that need to be mailed last night so we should be able to make a trip to the post office tomorrow. The US post office will definitely make a profit on me again this year, between the 80'ish cards and 10 packages I am mailing.

Most of my Christmas deco around the house went up over the weekend as well. Don't have the tree up yet but we will hopefully get that done early this week. I will make sure to post pictures when it's all done so you can see. I am glad all the rest of my deco (incl. my Dickens Christmas village) is up though. It's defintely beginning to feel a bit like Christmas now. :) 

Short mail update. No letters have gone out. :( Received letters from/still owe replies to: Jessica/DE andCharles/TN.

**Edit**: Managed to label some pictures from this summer's roadtrip and our trip to California in Sept. while waiting for the oil techs to finish. So if you are interested take a look here and here.

Hi Hanna, I'd love to see piccies of your Christmas village, I'm after one myself (next year when Pudding won't want to fiddle with it!). Hope the oil tank goes in ok and no probs with the insurance people etc! Nicola xx

We've got our tree up, and lots of presents wrapped. It's a good feeling. But there's still lots to do.
