We had a pleasant little Thanksgiving – just a nice, very small (compared to most years) get-together at my brother-in-law’s house.
I don’t do Black Friday but I do Cyber Monday (and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday…) Some of the Black Friday stories I’ve heard are just horrifying. Is this what the holiday season is all about? I saw a young woman on the news on TV showing off the bruises she got on Black Friday and saying that she would do it again next year. And in the comments over there someone said that a woman used pepper spray on other shoppers at a California Walmart. I know there are a lot of other people who, like me, won’t go near a store on the day after Thanksgiving but just knowing that there are so many people out there who are willing to physically injure other people just to save a few dollars is very discouraging and it makes me want to go all Mom on everyone send them all to their rooms.
But anyway… It’s “Cyber Monday”. This is my style of shopping. So far though, I’m not really feeling the holiday shopping urge yet. I want to do all the online shopping this week but I have only a few ideas. And I still have sewing to do but not much more and it’s really tempting to plan a few more projects for Christmas but then I’d feel bad if I didn’t get them all done so I don’t know.
The one bad thing about having Thanksgiving dinner at someone else’s house is that you don’t get to have lots of yummy leftovers the following week. So I made an apple pie yesterday. I would like to think you don’t need an excuse for pie but somehow I always feel better about the indulgence if I do have an excuse. Fortunately, the world is so full of excuses that we can always find one when we need it.
