Saturday 9: Black Magic Woman

Black Magic Woman

Saturday 9: Black Magic Woman (1970)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune: Hear it here.

1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday, November 23, was "Black Friday," when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains?  I got a few Christmas gifts and some mascara from Ulta...but not huge bargains.  We have done that in the past though.

2) On busy shopping days,  carts often litter parking lots. After loading your items into your car, are you careful to return your shopping cart to the store or the designated cart receptacleI usually put it in the cart receptacle, but if I am really close to the door, I will return it to the store.

3) Who on your gift list is hardest to buy for? My nephews

4) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include enjoying leftovers or watching a game?  Yes to both, we eat leftovers and watch some football.

5) Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is an annual event. It began in 1924 as a local event in New York. Today it's nationally televised. Did you watch it?  I actually watched it twice!  I watched when I was getting ready and then later in the afternoon as it was on replay, my son wanted to watch it, so we watched it again.
6) What did you give thanks for on Thanksgiving 2018My family

7) At the first Thanksgiving, there were no forks. Pilgrims ate with spoons and knives, and forks didn't become popular until the 18th century. Think about your Thanksgiving place setting. Did you have both a salad and a dinner fork?  we are not that formal, we each just had a dinner fork.  We did not have a salad.

8) Pies are a popular Thanksgiving dessert. What kind of pie did you enjoy? Or did you have ice cream? Or did you skip dessertPumpkin pie
9) This week's featured band, Santana, was named for its founder, Carlos Santana. He was born in Mexico. When at a Mexican restaurant, what do you usually order?  burrito, but I like a lot of things on a Mexican menu.  YUMMY!!!


  1. Sounds like you're enjoying the traditions (leftovers & football) this weekend! Have fun!

  2. I have a coupon right here for Ulta, and I do need mascara ... Thanks!

  3. Thanksgiving wasn't bad at all this year, the Patriots were not playing so I had some good conversations with my brother and my nephew's in-laws instead them staring at the tube all day.

  4. I should have taped the parade because I didn't get to see much of it from the kitchen. I love seeing the marching bands. This was another fun Saturday 9 and I enjoyed your answers!

  5. Mmmm! Burritos! That does sound yummy. Especially after several days of leftover turkey.
    Happy Saturday! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. It sounds like you're having a great weekend! Thanks for reminding me I need to get some Deva Curl hair gel from Ulta!

  7. Really, you do only just need one fork. :-)
