Canada followed the example set by the Americans and had Black Friday sales here - Black Friday being the day after the American Thanksgiving. They're really a big deal south of the border. Our sales were not quite as great as the US ones, but most of the stores participated and there were lots of bargains to be had. It was great fun being out and about with the crowds, getting lots of Christmas shopping done at great discounts.
Yesterday I had a birthday date with my 9-year old granddaughter, Charlie. What an interesting child she's turning out to be. We sat in a restaurant of her choosing for two hours and we chatted the whole time. She has a lot to say and makes very intelligent conversation. Someone had told her that the world is coming to an end in December so we had a discussion about the Mayan Calendar and superstitions and science and the planet's life cycle, etc. It's good to enjoy her while she still likes hanging out with 'old' people!

I spent a day this week with Mickey scrapbooking - the best ever scrapbooking day I've had - I was really on a roll and got lots of pages done.
Here's some of the best ones.
Hope this week is a good one for you.
