WEEKEND POTPOURRI: BLACK FRIDAY, READING CHALLENGES, ETC. — NOV. 23

Welcome to the Day After…Yes, the Day After Thanksgiving, known in some circles as Black Friday.

I shiver just thinking about the crowds and long lines of folks hoping to get the best deal possible for their holiday shopping needs.  I am not a fan of shopping in the best of times, preferring the quick in and out kind.  Or better yet, online shopping.

Nowadays, my grocery shopping is a little more fun than it used to be…back when I had a “day job,” and had to hurry a lot.   I like picking an early morning to leisurely stroll through the aisles.

Because of my shopping style, I stay away from Black Friday events.

Today I’ve been reading, watching the Quartermainia Marathon (General Hospital) from my DVR, and touching up the few Christmas things I brought out from the garage yesterday.

Over at Chocolate & Mimosas, I shared a few photos.

Reading Challenges are on my list for this weekend, too.  Signing up for them for 2013.  Check over at Curl up and Read for what I’ve added so far.

And here’s one I’ve got in my sidebar at Curl up and Read, but I’ve added the page for it over at Chocolate & Mimosas.

Have you signed up for any reading challenges for 2013 yet?  If so, what are you doing?  Or what are you contemplating, if you haven’t yet committed to anything?

    • I was just bored yesterday, Patty; I’d read, I’d watched movies….and then I got that familiar restless feeling…lol

      Plus…the grandkids are going to be around this weekend, and they’ll enjoy seeing the decorations out.
