Caturday Art: Ready for Christmas

With Thanksgiving behind us all eyes are finally turning to Christmas. Truthfully, I'm ready for Christmas the day after Halloween, but I know many people don't like to even think about it until Black Friday.

Since I've been slowly decorating for the past couple weeks it's been a pretty quite and lazy weekend here at our house. Any Black Friday shopping was done online. I refuse to become a part of that craziness. I actually splurged a bit on myself, buying some Kevin Harvick Championship merchandise at NASCAR.com with a 25% off coupon, a darling Night Before Christmas Garfield plush, Melissa Gilbert's Prairie Cookbook for an extra 30% off Amazon's already reduced price, and last but not least a couple things for Truffles and our Secret Paws.

Have you gotten any good deals this weekend, or did you stay home and decorate?


We created today's Caturday Art with Pho.to. More artsy kitties can be found here.

  1. We won't get our tree for another week or so since we get a live one. With a woodstove in the yurt we can't get it too soon. I don't have a houseful of decorations any longer. When we moved into the trailer I couldn't bring them all with me.

  2. Hello Melissa. No, I never went shopping on Thursday night or Friday. Can't stand getting caught of that many people with some being so crazy they will just knock you down to get what they want. It's not worth it to me. Besides most times it's already gone before you get to it. It would have been nice to have had the 50" TV at Walmart for $218. But was at my granddaughter's home with most of our big family. I've not shopped online except for some books. Sounds like you had a relaxing day. I would love to be your winner.

  6. Truffles looks adorable in that ornament. I did brave the crowds, but not til 7 am when all the crazies from 1 am were home in bed :) I have Melissa GIlbert's cookbook from the library right now, you are going to love it. There are so many pages I want to copy that I should just buy one too. Today, we will put up the tree.
