Thought for the day……

Good Monday Morning and welcome to November 26th, 2012.

The fog has rolled in here in my neighbourhood; not sure how far reaching it is.

How was your weekend?  Mine was odd but wonderful.

Friday started out with my day off from the office …… so I slept in a bit and then did some things around the house.

Finished the day by working at the store from mid afternoon until 9:00 p.m.

“BLACK FRIDAY” …. the retail version of everyone shopping for the “best deals of the year.”

Until recent this was an American thing but now it has come to Canada.

Our store was crazy busy and I mean crazy busy.

Most people were nice but some were utterly impossible ….. I say “why are you shopping if you have no patience?”

Oh well, it was definitely an experience.

I hear or read somewhere that American retailers make on average up to 40% of their annual sales on that one day.

That blows my mind.

Okay enough about that ……..

Saturday was great …  I had coffee with my daughter and then coffee with my friend “G” and my grand-puppies came to visit.

(In between all of the fun, I really did do some housework and of course, LAUNDRY).

After coffee was over – I got all three of the puppies ready and we went for a walk.

It is always an adventure ….. each of them wanting to go in a different direction.

I felt like a sled being pulled …… it was fun.

Saturday night …. I just kicked back with a cup of tea and watched a movie.

It was soooo nice….

Sunday back to the store but not until mid afternoon which was lovely.

That was my weekend.

Footnote: thank goodness the shoppers took a bit of a break yesterday.  I heard from other staff that worked Saturday that it was crazy busy, too.

Apparently most of the stores at West Ed still had “BLACK FRIDAY”  sales on until yesterday …..

Really, doesn’t that defeat the “BLACK FRIDAY” …… perhaps it should be renamed “BLACK WEEKEND” or something.

Well time to go to work.

I hope that you have a great week.

At this time of year …. remember to go early and with a list.

Plan ahead of time.

Oh and it took me longer to find a parking space on Friday than to drive from home to the mall.

Yesterday I went to my usual spot and it was full so I then drove over to the area I was at on Friday and kept on driving …… busy again.

Special Hello: to my angel who was born on this day but taken from us way too early ….. we miss you my darling nephew.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
