It is so beautiful out. I am so glad I went to bed at a normal hour last night. The thought of shopping at midnight does not appeal to me. The sun is shining brilliantly and I am sweating in my light weight sweatshirt, jersey pants and wool socks. The dog need the outside time, the girl does too.
I cannot imagine wanting to be indoors on a day like today, shopping with people who will punch you over the last piece of crap. I do not shop on Black Friday. Or ThanksBuying. I never have. I suspect I never will.
The light was shining so brightly on the water as it sparkled below. Dry lake is not dry at all and the little run off is a full fledged creek. I take a path I do not normally take but I am tired today. After all the work yesterday my body is saying, hey lets sit down for a few minutes, but I push on. I still have a dishwasher full of dirty dishes, and a sink full, but I had to leave it so I could get out while the weather held. I find that as I write this, I can feel my knitting calling to me. I think I might have to put off doing the dishes just a little longer.
The house is quiet and I look at my clean and ordered outdoors, watch the grass shining in the sun, appreciate the crystal made rainbows that dot my walls and ceiling. I feel the sweat cooling and drying on my skin. I feel the rough calloused fingers on my hands as I type. I smell turkey, pie and bacon. All this is good. I feel at peace.
Just say NO to Black Friday. Just say NO to ThanksBuying. Buy local, buy handmade.
