I Caved......I Shopped!

After a restful Thanksgiving at Mom and Dad's yesterday, I awoke to a very chilly morning. I was done feeding the animals by 7:30. The dogs had no desire to play outside, the sheep and goats were busy munching their hay, the horses were busy trying to find the last piece of grain leftover by the sheep, and the chickens were busy doing nothing cuz thats what they do best.....nothing. So what was I going to do? Let me think......laundry? NO. Wash the floors? NO. Grade school papers? HECK NO! I had an idea......go shopping with hundreds of my best friends!! I caved. I just couldn't resist.......I had already made my list of places to go last night......just in case. I left the house at 8:15. I got home at 2:20. It was wrong on so many levels. But I had so much fun shopping for me......okay I did buy gifts for Mom and Dad, me, sister Jen, me, brother-in-law Bob, me, FWB, me, the dogs, me..........I can't say what I bought cuz sister Jen might be reading and she is really nosy. But I really like all of the Bath-n-Body stuff esp the VIP bag and my house is going to smell so festive and my hands will smell so twisted peppermint after doing barn chores! Lots of creative stuff from JoAnn Fabrics.....denim fabrics, fleece stuff, new sewing tools.......goodness, I am going to have to start getting creative! I forgot I had to pick up 2 bales of pine shavings so when I got to the feed store which was my last stop, my friend Dave there just shook his head because I had to rearrange the mini-van to get them in there. It was quite packed in the van but I only have a few items to pick up for my niece and nephew and I am done!!! I did get 2 gifts, one for a boy and one for a girl which goes to my school. Santa comes for the pre-K to 3rd graders and the teachers donate gifts to make Christmas for them as some many have so little. I had too much fun today!

Tomorrow is decorating day....all day!

Bring on a little bit of snow and some red fleece!!

Love the cozy goat pic!

I did a tiny bit of shopping today. My friend's bday is Dec 2 and I needed to pick out a few goodies to send her. I don't normally shop on Black Friday.

It sounds like you may have done a little more than "cave"! Did you make it back with all your limbs? Toes and fingers all accounted for? You are a braver woman than I. I stayed home and spun some yarn.

It sounds like you had a blast! Absolutely nothing wrong with that and you helped stimulate the economy! ;-)

Happy Holidays

Thanks everyone for stopping over! Glover's little coat was a picture from last year. It has a velcro strap under the stomach and at the chest. Simple make even for me;)
