Holiday Madness

My hubby and I managed to avoid the holiday madness that takes place the day after Thanksgiving.  We spent time relaxing - enjoyed a lively game of Scrabble...a trip to the library and a delicious salad from Subway.   Whatever bargains were missed cannot hold a candle to the simple pleasure of  a quiet day savoring some relaxation before the Christmas Season arrives.

Wishing all of you some peaceful time as well.



"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on who his favor rests."   Luke 2:14 (NIV)


  1. "Whatever bargains were missed cannot hold a candle to the simple pleasure of a quiet day savoring some relaxation..."

    Amen to that!

  2. I can remember the crowds in the stores in Downtown Atlanta so many years ago. Glad to be at home on a cold rainy weekend! Have a nice week.

  3. I also opted to skip the madness and stay out of the stores. To me the "bargains" are not worth the stress of being out with so many people. I went to a quiet location and did some sketching and then went to the library to receive artwork for a show one of my art groups is doing there. Have a wonderful and peaceful week!

  4. Debbie, smart lady to stay in and enjoy the day at home...
    I didn't leave the house either. It's fine with me.

  5. We don't do much shopping. It certainly doesn't intrigue me to get out among them. Your day sounds perfectly lovely. Carry on...

  6. We too took a nice day of rest with leftover turkey chili .... no shopping for us -- we did an early shopping trip before the madness. Enjoy the quiet of the season!

  7. I SO agree with you , sounds like the perfect day !

  8. It sounds like you had a perfect day. I don't understand all the madness that takes place on Black Friday.

  9. Your way sounds just right.
    It always seems strange to me, one day being grateful for what folks have and then the next day spent pushing and shoving in order to get more... things.
    All the best xx

  10. Good for you, my friend!! At my house, too, we had a quiet, restful day away from the urgency of a Black Friday craziness! Such a welcome reprieve!

  11. That sounds like a very good day.

  12. That's nice that you spent a carefree day with your husband the day after Thanksgiving. It can be really crowded out there with traffic and all, and I always like to enjoy staying home with the simple pleasures. The salad from Subway sounds really good. Your red rose is beautiful, and it made my heart sing. Enjoy this special Christmas season, Debbie.


    *I love this verse so much.

  13. Debbie, that sounds like a perfect day. Black Friday shopping doesn't appeal to me in the least:) What a pretty photo! I love the Teddy bear.

  14. Yes, that was the best way to spend the day! Quiet here, too, and no complaints about that:)

  15. Such lovely choice dear Debbie :)

    i think it is related to our attitude that change with time and we like to explore our inner world than one around :)

    all the blessings to you my dear friend!

  16. Shopping madness here too. Not for me, and you had the right idea! Love the photo!

  17. Sounds just about perfect! Here's to keeping the holiday season sane :)

  18. What a wonderful way to spend the day...sounds like something we would do too. :) We celebrate Thanksgiving in October here in Canada but we can't escape the dreaded "Black Friday" that's sadly come to our country. I unfortunately had to go to a mall in the big city not realizing what day it was. I was so relieved to finally escape and get back to our little town.

  19. It was also quiet ads are crazy, using Christmas as a theme for sales and shopping. It's nice when the true gifts of the season are spiritual...I do get lured by sales, but I'm trying to stay more centered this year...

    This is the happiest moment of my life having no longer to worry about paying bills as i have been settled for life. A lot has been said about atm hacking and blank card for cash withdrawal but it all seemed like a myth to me until i eventually lost my job few months back and the world seemed to be moving backwards. I went online in search of jobs and means to an end and there i found comments about blankatmdeliveryxpress and how they deliver this card in less than 7 days with no risk involved and a far much lesser price compared to what the card itself can give you, i then made contact and purchase one from them with almost my last dollars I took the risk and in exactly 6 days latter my card and a manual was delivered to my home address here in California and that same evening i used the card was able to take out $5000 for a start its been just 3 weeks and my life has taken a new shape. I simply want to say thank you to this electronic company and help spread their fame abroad. If you ever are in need of this card contact them via email
    Don't mail them if you not really ready for this card is gonna cost you money to buy the card note that,they offer card to firms, orphans,individual and business personnels mail them immediately .

  22. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542
