Black Friday shopping & After Thanksgiving Poem

After Thanksgiving Poem

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep...
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned...the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen,
flung open the door
and gazed at the fridge,
full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling,
floating into the sky
with a mouthful of pudding
and a handful of pie
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees...
Happy eating to all -- pass the cranberries, please. :)

Are you shopping on Black Friday??
Nope, not me! I am planning on staying home and doing some sewing. I am going to make a batch of Turkey tetrazzini with the leftover bird.
I have went through about a dozen sale flyers and haven't really seen anything that I would fight the crowds for.
There are quite a bit of good deals out there though.
Most of the things that I found were things I would like to buy myself ;)
A new queen size comforter set from Kohl's on sale for 29.99 (original price 99.99) . I love this one!!!

Walmart Mainstay bath towels $1.50 each( gotta have navy blue),

Home Depot Husky 2-Gallon Compressor w/1" Micro Pin Nailer & 1-1/4" 18-Gauge Brad Nailer - $59.98 ( yes, I want one of those!),

Paula Deen 10-Piece Non-Stick Cookware Set, Green 99.97 at Walmart.

These are going on my "wish list". :)
What's on yours??


  1. Nope, not me either, giggle. Staying home and sewing, too.
    I haven't even thought about a wish list. But yours is nice, giggle.

  2. Not going shopping either. My husband is going to be hunting all day, so I will be at the sewing machine. I am so excited. Wish list? hhhmmm I will have to think on that one.

  3. Oh, I couldn't agree with you more about Black Friday! I can't remember any year that we shopped on that day.
    The only thing we did do a few times is go into State Fair Park for the annual Christmas Craft show and that was a zoo so we stopped doing that as well! lol
    Do you mind if I put your blog on my blog list????

  4. Oh, I love the Paula Deen cookware and there is a matching dutch oven that is on my list. my quilt shop is having a black friday sale so I am heading over there! take care Kim

  5. Hmmm...didn't have a wish list until I saw yours...I'm going to have to check out that cookware!
    We're going out, cause my daughter wants to...I'm not that crazy about shopping, myself. I just want to spend time with her before she goes back to college!

  6. No shopping here! Like you, I've found more stuff I'd like than stuff for gifts in the ads, and anyway, I don't think the discounts are going to stop today!


  7. Can I ask how you keep the message about being an award/tag free blog always at the top? I would love to post that as well! Thanks!!

  8. My template wouldn't let me drag the gadget from the bottom to under the header so I just used on in the side column. I appreciate your help though!! hugs, Linda

  9. I love your new blog look. Puts me in the mood for Christmas!

    Belive it or not, I didn't go to the sales today either! My daughters did though, so I sent money for them to pick up a couple of things for me. :)

  10. I love your the picture on your header. Beautiful. My husband and I did go out on Friday. He needed some clothes for work and we found some great deals. It was worth it. We don't usually go out on that day.

  11. I received the best gift in the mail today. A wonderful little primitive Santa. I sure wasn't expecting that. Thank you for such a great gift. I'm going to have to work on preparing a Perfect place for him. Thanks so much!! Happy Holidays!!

  12. NO not I!! I prefer to stay on my farm where all is peaceful!!!! I did do some shopping onine though.

  13. Hey!!! I just wanted to say thank you so so so so so much for the beautiful santa that you sent me for the giveaway! I love it! I know exactly where I am going to put it!!! I will post sometime this week a picture of it and show everyone on my blog. I called my best friend and told her about it! She's just as excited for me to show it off! Thank you again! :) Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
