Oh


I hear that Ottawa got its first big dump of snow today. This leaves me feeling surprisingly sad. Or, maybe its not so surprising.

PB180053

(The temperature is still reaching the mid-30s every day, and it has cooled down a lot from when I arrived.)

This will be my first Christmas without snow, and the first time I don't go home to my family for the holidays. There will be lots of people here, and Christmas dinners, and even a party or two, so it will be fun.

But it won't be the same.

Yeah, I sound like a whiner. Anyway, since I'm far away, and would love to receive some mail at this festive time of year, I have a proposition to make. If you would like to receive mail from Sudan, and don't mind sending something to me in return (my mailing address is in Canada), email me (knitter_tara*at*yahoo*dot*ca) your address. I'll send you mine in return, and we can exchange holiday cards!

Great idea, put me on your mailing list! I loove getting fun mail, especially from far away, it's one of my favourite type of surprises (look for my email).

hey you, snow it did, I didn't make it into the city yesterday there was so much snow at my house!
That first xmas away is always a littel hard but I am sure that you will still manage to have fun... even without snow, although if you really want I could send you some, speaking of which am I on that approved senders list, you might need some treats giving that the holidays are coming
