Sunday is always a crazy day filled with motion from the moment I get up, to the time I lay my head down on the pillow at night. After doing three loads of laundry (yuck!), I settled in for a quick breakfast before moving again. I managed to finish Small Medium at Large by Joanne Levy. This story is an excellent novel for a pre-teen. The main character is sassy and fun. A young girl will enjoy the humour and the events that take place in the story – my daughter certainly did.
The rest of the day I did not get a chance to read the printed page. I did manage, though, to read some blog posts – though I did not get a chance to catch up on everyone. Part of the day was spent doing some Christmas shopping. I like to get this done early on in the season. I try to avoid the madness of shopping the closer 25th December comes. The crowds, the craziness of people and panic of trying to find the perfect gift at the last minute do not make for a pleasant shopping experience. I would definitely avoid the craziness of the American Black Friday shopping madness:
I definitely prefer shopping quietly knowing what it is that I wish to buy for my loved ones.
Yesterday ended with a yummy supper made by my husband: a curried rib stew. We ate heartily, leaving my husband with a smile on his face.
Have you begun your Christmas shopping? Do you avoid shopping crowds, or do you thrive in its energy?
