We went window-shopping yesterday. Costco…and lots of photographs of holiday things between buying a loaf of bread, tags for presents, and a nice hot chicken for dinner. Yes, I am embarrassed to show you all the blindingly decorative cheap stuff that's in the stores for a holiday a month away. Yes, I took an acre of pictures.
He spoke at the Friday night meeting after work, and Saturday morning we started our day at Costco. Dear retail industry. I do understand that most of your income for the year comes from holiday sales. I’m sorry to tell you that I’m one of those who shop during the year. Many are getting my photographs this year. Some grandkids are getting money.
This year the colors seem skewed, and even the repetitions seem off. While they worry about what’s going to appeal to me and what I am going to buy, I am going to keep on discarding stuff.
For me, this holiday is about lighter and lighter.
