Great news! Remember my elevator replacement issue, which led to reduced shipping dates for the past few months? We received word this morning that they are slightly ahead of schedule, and my condo building's brand new elevator is expected to be fully operational some time next week. If true, that means that normal shipping will resume once I return from my early November vacation. (Given the delays sometimes involved in construction projects such as this one, I was very concerned that I might have limited mobility continuing into November. And given that I have not left this floor of the building in 14 days, that prospect was disturbing on many levels.)
So, this seems like a good time to remind everyone that Canada Post's holiday shipping deadline suggestions are out, and I strongly recommend placing your holiday orders well before the dates listed, just in case your package is one of the few that experiences inordinate delays. Please contact me if you have any questions!
I will be on Maui in early November; I will try to post more photos this year. Here is one of my gecko friends from last year in the meantime (they don't need elevators!):
