The Thanksgiving Holiday is Over Now We Have Black Friday
Welcome to LilacsNDreams! How did Thanksgiving go for everyone? Did we survive the day? Hope everyone is doing well, the tummies have settled for those who had a big feast, and there were safe travels for those who drove some where.
Now we have Black Friday. How many of you participate with the madhouse shopping on this day? To this day I have never participated with a Black Friday event. I’ve always been content with the sales, and specials I find myself. If I do any shopping on this particular day I also do it online.
As for my Thanksgiving Day? I was at home by myself for most of the day. Husband was able to come home tonight for a few days. Our daughter spent the day with her in-laws, and our son stayed on base. We will be celebrating our holiday together at Christmas time. Son will have leave, and is well deserving of it. It’s been about 3-4 years since he has been able to be home for this holiday. So, this will be the family special time to gather, and celebrate.
Below you will see a picture I am sharing. I spent all day putting lights on the Christmas tree, adding the ornaments to the tree, making little trees with tall candle stands, putting lights and ornaments on those, bringing out the Christmas towels with pot holders, Christmas hand towels for the bathroom, and don’t forget wonderful laundry and dishes had been done too. During my Christmas decorating I put together a wreath for our front door. I used 4 big plastic candy canes that are red, white, and green. I zip tied those together. I was then going to add a simple bow, and was thinking about something floral with it. I looked at the Christmas spray sitting there with a few pine cones, and some red berries. I noticed how it stretched a little bit, and thought about it hanging with the canes I had put together. I payed it along the canes, played with it a bit, and I started zip tying it all together. Added the bow to the top, added a zip tie to use as a hanger, and put it on the wreath holder on our front door.
A thought that came to mind was I’m happy that I hung onto some things like I do, or pick things up along the way thinking I’ll eventually use it. Doing something like this is how things come together.
