It's starting to look like winter around here, in time for the kids to get excited about Christmas! Might be another three and a half months before I get to play around in my yard with flowers and such, so I better get used to making snowmen and snow forts. ;)

Oops, I think I just killed my computer mouse. Good thing it was a $7 one. Maybe when we're out for a few groceries I'll pick up another cheapie. Should check out the current cost of a trackball as well - I do prefer that design to a regular mouse...

Naughty Becca decided on a $25 trackball, the cheapest of all the trackball options and one of the best-looking too. ;) Ordered online, so shipping and tax as well. I'm really hoping this is a long-living trackball!

I got a call this morning that the shipment with Hubby's Christmas presents should be here today. There's duty to pay but it's definitely worth not worrying whether economy shipping (via USPS and Canada Post) would make it in time. Next year I need to shop around Black Friday/Cyber Monday, for the shipping times and not necessarily the deals! LOL

Since we're at home waiting for the courier, I've had more time to be sure the grocery list is complete, put banana bread in the oven and will make supper from poultry left in the deep freeze. We'll get the groceries tomorrow. :)

Oops, I got so busy I didn't give a Tuesday update! Groceries and playgroup plus a school "project" when Tim came home (a drawing about what we all like most about the holidays). In the evening I discovered that I'm not as rusty with my French as I thought - I can at least understand what's going on when I check the news or talk shows, and I didn't think that was possible anymore. Now I need to practice my conversation, maybe with the pastor's wife. :)

This morning I did some baking for church and then dealt with the kitchen clean-up. After lunch, we mailed off a few Christmas cards to the relatives without computers and came home with a bunch of mail ourselves! Meatballs for supper and some organising done in the boys' closet too!

Things are good here this week.  I haven't been babysitting because the dad in my main family broke his toe at work, and is out for a month or so.  Then my Friday only family is done because the mom's semester is done, and she isn't teaching Fridays anymore.  It has been nice to just have my kiddos.

I am going to go to the library today I think. I am going to return two books that just haven't called out to me to read them. I will look on the Christmas table for a new one, and they also have one for me on hold. :)

I like checking Christmas book displays at the library. You never know what you'll find. :)
