Yes indeed. Thanksgiving is over. Messes cleaned up. Leftovers put away. Plenty to eat for the weekend.
Black Friday has started here in U.S. Crazy crowds and shopping.
Decorating. Winter scents. Cold weather. Wrapping. Lights. Movies. ..........
29 DAYS TO CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
ALSO it is a time for depression, sadness, loneliness, and feelings of dread. Be aware and watch for these things in people you know. Many people do not do well during the holiday season. Check on shut-ins and people you know who live alone. No one truly knows what goes on behind closed doors. Be aware and reach out. Maybe just a caring word or act of kindness can change a day, week, month or season for someone.
I am not shopping at all this weekend - I will be staying home in this warm safe place. I saw on the news this morning that there were long lines as early as 4AM, huge lines, lots of people, and hardly a mask to be seen!!! Yep, I will stay home.
I talked to a niece yesterday and she has 2 teenagers I buy for. Well, she did something right, as they are very easy and not needy kids. Of course they like $$$ and GC's - but they also just like simple things like warm socks, PJ's and goodies and yummies. I can do that!
So today I stay in, eat leftovers, sew, and maybe watch a movie and maybe even nap. I have recorded a few movies over the past week or so that just seem to be fun for the holidays (not necessarily holiday movies).
So it is time to get busy and get ready for the NEXT special day. Hoping many of you are done and just get to enjoy your time.
Have a great weekend!
