December 1st

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....
I so enjoy that song this time of year!

The air is getting chilly here. The days still have been incredibly warm, hovering around 54 degrees, unheard of for this time of year!
But today, my husband sent me a note of a winter weather advisory for an area fairly close to Atyrau! The night time wind chills are expected to drop well below zero and there is a chance of snow!
I am actually quite excited to experience this...even if it does mean the start of a long winter!

There are a few decorations going up around camp and around the city...I only have pictures of these blow up figures, but there are Christmas trees and lights hanging around, too.

We have caroling and Christmas concerts coming up this weekend...
exciting times are upon us;
including getting ready to leave for the US to spend Christmas with our families in a few weeks!

I love this time of year! ho, ho ho :)

Merry Christmas! Here in Pottsville nobody decorates except my next door neighbors who go all out with the blow-ups, and lights and all. In fact, they light up the whole almost-town! But this year they moved, so I will miss that. I am too lazy myself. I hang a wreath on the door, and I am done! Have a good trip home to the states!

From the look of your weather "thingy" on your sidebar it´s really cold! Keep warm and enjoy the season!

Enjoy the snow!

So, those blow up things are in Kasakhstan, too. I wonder if there's anywhere in the world they haven't reached yet, LOL!

Love the new look! Very cool. I love this time of the year too. How fun that you may get snow. I am jealous. Stay safe and keep posting about your adventures.

Hehe, cool to see what's going on on Christmas around the bloggosphere :-)
Will need to take some decent photos of the Christmas trees in the supermarket ;-)
About the only place you see them :-)
