Pumpkin Pie

I hope all those celebrating Thanksgiving had a lovely day, and are recovering from the “food coma”.  We have lots of left-overs and enjoyed turkey sandwiches today, and there’s still pie! Life is good! 🙂

I’m staying away from all stores this week-end. I’m shopping after this week-end and online. I don’t want to deal with parking, traffic, or the crowds. Did you brave the traffic, parking hassles, and crowds today? Did you score any really great bargains? I never have. I guess that’s why I don’t miss going.

Tomorrow I hope to put away the Thanksgiving decorations, and get our tree up. I think Big Baby Boy is going to put up the Christmas lights for us this year. What a blessing he is!

I wish you all a great week-end!

  1. Pumpkin pie is the best thing to eat in leftover form, when it’s all cold and well, frankly, it makes a nice breakfast. I asked my husband to buy three, but he only bought two and everyone else better eat the apple one. LOL (We have apple trees, I bake apples and pies and gallettes and make sauce for like, A MONTH!)
    I never go out on Black Friday. One time, long long ago, I went with my husband’s ex-wife (really, we did turkey day together a few years — we get along fine, and are not divorced) and all the kids to a Thanksgiving night sale. Quite honestly, I was missing my husband (Army away) and it really cheered me. I don’t like shopping and I’m in favor of people being home. I am thankful for all the people who worked that sale because I was sad. I think about that night fondly, we had SUCH a good time! SO much laughing. We had huge sundaes. I bought my silverware that night — and I still think about it a lot. Sounds strange, but there it is.

    1. Sounds like you got a nice deal or some really great silverware that shopping trip as well as pretty great time with the kids.

      We still have #1 Grandson’s Dad and his family over. We’re still friends. We even hang out with his parents. Baby Girl and the X are much better friends which is good for #1.

      Speaking of Baby Girl, she worked in retail for a number of years and detested working on these last two Holidays. People can be so rude, and condescending, the hours suck, and did I mention how so many people are just nasty and rude. She refuses to shop on the Holiday because she’s been there. I refuse to shop on them because of parking, rude people, and frankly I never found the sales that great or huge bargains. I’m much happier at home, on a hike, or anywhere not near a mall or chain store.

      1. MMHM. I have worked retail at Christmas — 1991-1997, oh yes ma’am, people are wretched greedy and rude! I remember getting all the kids coats that year and getting a good deal, but it was more about the togetherness. I am so glad your family embraces exes, too! It’s much better for the bebes!

    I hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving re-post from my archived posts.
    I wish all those in the US a wonderful Thanksgiving, and lovely week.
    My heart is full of gratitude, and Thanksgiving for all the blessings I have in my life, and you Dear Readers enrich my life and bring me joy and teach something almost every day. Thank you so much for your conversations, and friendships.


  3. I did go shopping on Black Friday. I bought my Mother (her request) a new padded toilet seat at Lowe’s. There wasn’t even a discount. And yes, I did install it later that day. Blessings to you and your family.
