It is Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Many people, all over the U.S. are shopping today.. . Except me. (smiles)
I am home, cleaning, and remembering what a wonderful Holiday we had yesterday.
I don't think I have ever shopped on Black Friday. I love hearing about all the treasures others are able to find, and about how much fun they are having, but I really would rather stay home. I don't even want to shop online, or by phone. I know, that is so un-American of me. But I'd rather not spend any money. I just don't need anything right now.
So I am busy with my decorating and homemaking tasks. It will be a restful, happy day at home.
Later, I will hear about the shopping feats of others. I will be delighted for them. Just like a Grandma who sits at home, resting, eagerly waiting for when the family comes back home. . . Waiting for them to tell her about their adventures in the world.
I will have some hot, homemade beef stew waiting for them. The fire will be blazing in the wood stove. And Mama will be here, as happy and content as ever.
