Do you go out and hit the malls and store or internet to get the best deals today? Well, not just today, since this Black Friday began a week ago and goes through Monday, officially Cyber Monday.
My husband’s Aunt Virginia was a big Black Friday shopper back in the day, when it really was only a one-day thing. I have fond memories of getting out early with her after the day before eating too much turkey and dressing and pumpkin pie and sausage balls and what she called Christmas Munch, otherwise known as Chex Mix. We’d battle the traffic. Bob would let us off close to the door, and he’d end up parking at the back of the lot. The end result was after going into every store, she got all of her Christmas shopping done on that one day.
Auntie has been gone for many years now, but we still eat her Sausage Balls and Christmas Munch. I can’t say I miss those trips to the mall to fight the hordes in the stores. But I do love a good deal, so I might still go out.
Now-a-days it’s so easy to buy on-line. I wasn’t much of an on-line buyer until Covid, but now I am. Gosh, I even bought some clothes on-line in the depth of the pandemic.
Authors have been into on-line shopping and sales for a time. This year for the first time ever, I’ve put one of my books on sale for 99 Cents. So if you haven’t read TAINTED yet, this is a great opportunity. Second Chance Romantic Suspense with an H & H in their 50s. Set in beautiful Red River, NM.
Elizabeth Hartman needs to start a new life after divorcing her husband Gerry Richardson who’s in federal prison for money laundering, a crime the Feds suspected her of being involved in. Her mother’s family vacation home in Red River, New Mexico offers just the respite she needs. Or does it?

When we went around the table yesterday, our 12-year-old grandson volunteered to go first, and he was thankful that Mimi and Grandad have such a great place on the lake. Made my heart swell.
However you spent yesterday, I hope it was a great one. Be careful out there if you hit the malls.
