Not Shopping

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.

I too am remaining home today as well and cleaning and spending time with my son. I think the only time I ever shopped Black Friday was three weeks after my Husband and I got married. I got a crock pot, pot & pans set, and a vacuum- Things much needed for our home. Haven't done it since and have no desire to.

I don't do any of the big frenzied shopping things either. Today we drove north into Wisconsin to cut down a Christmas tree and bring it to our suburban much fun! May you and yours be blessed this weekend, dear one!

I have never been shopping on Black Friday either. I don't like shopping at the best of times and when it is crowded it is even worse. And I surely don't want to be fighting someone over something. I can't think of anything I want badly enough to get into a fuss over it.

Wonderful post!

I agree! I don't ever remember Black Friday shopping. After two days spent cooking in my kitchen I started on giving my house some much needed attention.
