Happy Everything!


Happy Valentine's Day! Happy Chinese New Year!

Sending out much love and blessings to everyone on this celebratory day! I hope everyone has either spoiled themselves, has been gifted, or is going to go out and do something nice today.

Yesterday, to celebrate "New Year's Eve" I went out with my friend and my mother to a Chinese restaraunt for Dim Sum. It was amazing, and my first experience eating this way. The carts being wheeled around stacked with wonderful little plates of food, was fun! And the food - wow. All I can say is, I could get used to eating like this!

I stopped at the Chinese grocery too, and bought some red envelopes to put a bit of money in to give to my neices. To read up a bit about Chinese New Year, check out Wikipedia.

I'm also stopping to get some chocolate for myself (of course) and my best friend for a little Valentine's treat. Hopefully I'll find some daffodils too, because not only are they the perfect little Spring flower, but the Chinese regard them as being a symbol of prosperity - so that's always a good thing to have around!

I'm still busily setting up my house, and have been working on my Reiki area - I'll snap photos when I'm done. I found a great bamboo mat and some wall art. Divider screens have been spotted, and I'm going to go purchase them this week.

So much going on, plus I'm trying to find time to get caught up on my blog reading, and book reading. I've just unpacked my books finally, and it's rather frightening how many I have, and how many I have yet to read! I just need about a weeks vacation I think. That would be enough time to settle into a few good books and catch up here in blogland. Too bad that I don't see that kind of time coming available in my future... One thing at a time, I guess. It will all get done.

Hope your future is very fortunate for this Year of the Tiger! Health and Prosperity to you!

Always wanted to try dim sum but no restaurants around here like that. I think this is going to be a good year for me since I'm a tiger:)
