Black Friday

So, how are you spending your day?

My mother tried to convince me it would be a good idea to go shopping before sunrise this morning. I declined.

I just can't face the crowds of people pushing, shoving, stealing items from other shopping baskets, and the hoards of little ones that should still be home tucked in their beds. I can't do it.

If you participated, I hope you found everything you went after and I applaud your bravery.

I haven't called to see if she went or not. I hope she stayed home.

That's where we are. We're in our jammies enjoying being lazy today. The kids are watching cartoons and I'm making disasters come alive in the sewing room.

The black and white wool bag isn't going to happen. It all came down to bad choices on my part and now that it's almost finished I'm not willing to invest any more time into it. As it stands now, I've got a really neat looking little bowl type thing to hold ribbons and other frippery. I'll try again later.

I really want to just go curl up with a good book and see if I can read myself into a nap. I'm sure the kids have different ideas though and it won't happen.

I've got a couple of aprons in mind and need to go cut out the fabric and get started. They shouldn't take long.

I'm with you girl, not a fan of fighting the crowds, but can you believe, my hubby got up and left at 6am to get the boys gifts on sale, he did, all 4! I'm kinda proud of him! lol

Wow! He's a brave man.

It really is a relief to be making so many gifts this year. I don't have to worry about the last one being snatched or anything.

So what did you get the boys?
