buy nothing black friday.

i'm so glad i don't have to work today. i had originally booked it off for an appointment, it was cancelled.. i have a friday completely off and all to myself. black friday to be specific.. just in case you don't know what that is, it's an american super sale day that takes place the day after their thanksgiving. the irony being 'on thursday everyone gives thanks for all that they have, and on friday they trample one another to get a cheap television'.

well, said sale day has crept up over the border into canada the last few years. and i say nuts to that.. i think i found a new tradition. book black friday off so that i can go through all of the things i have, and share with those who have not. that and find things i maybe forgot i even had so that i really don't have to go buy anything.

so far i've found a couple of old jackets i can bring to community care, a bunch of markers and pens and various stationery items, a bunch of stuff i no longer needed to recycle or burn, and i freed up two large totes worth of space in my walk-in closet/shed/workout room. i also found something i really needed and forgot i even had, two pairs of super warm rayon leggings tucked away with random other camping gear. total score! i was just telling matty how i wished i had some warm leggings, and voila! my tush is cozy warm.

to keep with today's theme of doing inventory of all that we have, we will create a dinner feast from leftovers in the fridge and freezer, and have a movie night at home. and home is a wonderful place to be on a day like today, as a fresh blanket of snow has fallen. it's our first winter in the new place, and there's been talk of building a snowman or possibly a fort! ahhhh TGIF.
