English: DC USA, Target, Black Friday

Honestly, I was in the mood to buy something. A camera, a lens, a widget, gadget, cool electronic toy. I was eager and ready. But wherever I looked, the stuff on sale was something I already own … or something I don’t need or want. I’ve already shopped for my family and close friends, so there are no gifts on my list to be bought.

So I looked. And looked. And looked again. Finally, I found exactly what I needed on Amazon — and snapped it up. Greenies tooth cleaning dog biscuits for small breeds. I was thrilled to find it on sale for 20% less than I usually pay.

That concluded my Black Friday shopping. Garry and I bundled up and went to enjoy the annual lighting of Heritage Museum and Gardens.

Today is the last day of NaBloPoMo. Thanks to all of you who came and visited. Congratulations to all of us who stuck it through and made it to the end. It has been an experience … and a lot of fun! See you next year!

  1. Congrats! It’s been fun being your rowmie. I am worn out from posting every day, but it was a lot of fun.


  2. I couldn’t possibly brave the crowds for anything in the world.


  3. When you live in the country and pay a visit to the “Big Shops” you almost feel that you must buy something or you have wasted the opportunity so I’m glad you found your dog biscuits. 🙂


  4. Greenies!! My dogs love those things and they are sooo expensive! I’ll do ya one better on Black Friday shopping. I was not in the mood to shop, but I did go to Sonic and buy myself a Cherry Limeade, because I felt like I deserved it for surviving Thanksgiving. Yay for NaBloPoMo, without which I might have never known you existed, dearest friend and wonderful writer and amazing photographer! I’m going to keep stalking you. Hope you don’t mind. 😀


    • I bought the Greenies on Amazon, so I never left my chair 🙂 You’ve become a regular read for me … which is saying a lot because I’m so overwhelmed by committments I’ve made, I will NEVER catch up. I’m not even seriously trying any more. I just do what I can and the rest slides. But YOU are a keeper 🙂


      • I love it! Amazon is the best…it’s where I do all my Christmas shopping from, except this year everyone is getting something homemade (edible), just not sure what yet. I do need to buy a gift for DSB but he is hard to shop for. I’m sure I’ll figure something out. And I am honored to be one of your regular reads! You are one of mine, too! I know what you mean about all of the reading committments. Sometimes I look at my email notifications and just hit “delete all.” I’ve gotten to a point where I don’t even feel guilty about it!


        • Just a thought on exchanging gifts between mates: Garry and I are BOTH hard to shop for. Garry doesn’t need anything and often isn’t sure what he wants, either (tough a pair of new driving gloves seems to be this year’s wish), so we give each other a token under the tree … THEN after Christmas, when everything is 50% or more off, we go shopping! Together. It’s fun and talk about bargains … there’s nothing as bargainy as just post Christmas!


          • That is a really good idea! I will have to run it by DSB and see what he thinks. He generally likes to make me something for birthdays, Christmases, but I don’t know that he will this year since he has had so many medical problems and I know he is already behind on projects he has already promised to people. The problem with him is that he wants tools, big tools, power tools, and I’m just at a loss, and they are often over my budget.


  5. You bought one more thing on black Friday than I did. I loathe the thought of crowds who might turn nasty and trample me.


  6. That was a good fine. Greenies are a favorite in our house too! 🙂


  7. You are bold to brave the crowds. I would rather wait until the very last second. : ) If at all. I have always wanted to be an “in advance shopper” Never have . Maybe next year…………….


  8. Congrats to you too! It’s been so cool to be on this challenge with you. 🙂
