Black Friday shopping

I just got back from Black Friday shopping, an event I always look forward to. This year's expedition was with my brother Caleb, I got up at 5:15, and we were out the door at 5:30. Though normally I prefer to shop in uncrowded stores.....there's something fun about all the energy and excitement of all the crowds looking for deals:-). Speaking of deals, I got some  good ones this year. We hit Walmart, Michaels, JoAnns, Lowes, Super Shoes,  and Harbor Freight....and I was able to get a bunch of yarn on sale, 3 calenders, a big one for the kitchen, a daily planner, and a purse sized one - all 3 together for $1.50, and my favorite thing - an mp3 player. I've been wanting one for awhile, all last year I used to listen to sermons, but this year has just been so busy, it's hard to find time to sit at the computer for the length of a sermon, and if I am sitting there that long then it's hard not to start working on emails, or...I admit it, this blog:-). That does not make for good concentration! So now I can multitask (one of my favorite activities:-) and listen while I take my morning walk. Of course I plan to put lots of music on it too. That was one of Walmart's special deals today so I was glad I got there early enough to get one. On the other hand we were not early enough to get one of their laptops, that was on sale, for my brother....and we arrived only about half an hour into the six hour sale! I found out that I can reuse the JoAnns' coupons I have, so may hit that again later with Adri.....

Now it's time to relax and enjoy some coffee and leftover pie! I hope everyone has a good day:-)

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
