No Black Friday shopping, here. Actually, I have nothing against Black Friday shopping, but I don't like shopping when it is so crowded and frantic. That kind of excitement is a bit too much for me, especially these days. Also, there's not much that I want to buy. Yes, I want to buy a new washer and dryer, but I can wait a bit longer to buy them.
It was another, hot, summer-like day, here. In the morning, I did some knitting. The sweater is coming along, slowly. I joined the shoulders and did the ribbing around the neckline.
In the afternoon, I played chauffeur to daughter and her friend. They had made plans to see a movie and her friend was going to pick up daughter, but something happened to the friend's car so, daughter asked if I could drive them. Daughter couldn't drive herself and her friend because I've taken her off my car insurance while she is away from home since she doesn't need to drive me from chemo treatments, anymore. So, I drove daughter to her friend's house to pick her up, then, drove them both to the movie theater, drove home for a couple of hours, then, drove to pick them up from the movie theater, dropped her friend off, and drove back home!
In between driving them around, I knitted a bit more (started on the first sleeve), watched some TV, watered the front garden (several days of 90F+ weather and the garden is parched!), ate a piece of pumpkin pie, and tidied the dining table.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Another warm, summer-like day
- A reliable car
- Daughter is able to get together with some of her friends
- Time to knit and to relax
- Leftovers for dinner
How was your day? Did you go Black Friday shopping? If so, did you get some good bargains?
