5 Things I Have Learned This Week


1) Never ever waste your time making instant oatmeal. It’s gross and isn’t all oatmeal really instant anyway?

2) It’s okay to make a pie with store bought filling. Everyone will eat it just the same.

3) You can get the Black Friday deals online on Thanksgiving morning so there is no reason to miss the turkey or to get up at an ungodly hour the day after when you are feeling sluggish and bloated.

4) Never buy a Christmas tree that is front heavy. It will be a long and disappointing holiday season. On a good note, you will never make that mistake twice!

5) Don’t become the rush around you. Take a moment to enjoy some solitude and just breathe.

  1. “Bravo” is the word that comes to mind, but … admittedly … it sounds a bit “cheesy”. So, apologies for my cheesy word. The first theme that comes to mind is your continuity of thankfulness and prioritizing of common sense and peace of mind. I’ve been following your blog since (around) when I started blogging. The oatmeal thing … HA ! Never thought about it, but yes, I agree.
    Black Friday … Yes. I’d go so far as to say that Black Friday has lost some of it’s value … Hey, great post.


  2. Nice quick thoughts…. the older I grow, the more anti-Black Friday I become. I think it’s even more terrible that this year many people had to go to work ON thanksgiving. It’s disappointing how people will say “I’m thankful for everything that I have” and then trample a neighbor at 6am the next day to get a TV at 20% off. Frustrating, but I’ll stop my rant there šŸ˜›

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

      • Yeah but I also have friends that were forced to work and were completely miserable about it. I guess my perspective is also shifted as here in Chile, the entire country pretty much closes on national holidays, including grocery stores, all chains of stores etc. Only places open are small privately owned corner markets if the owners decide to work. Creates a distinct atmosphere of strictly family / friends time. I very much enjoy it and think the US could use some of it…
