|Robert and Leo at the coffee shop this morning|
It got really cold last night (well, down to freezing levels) because yesterday was clear and sunny. Today is another beautiful warm day, but it looks like our luck will finally have run out on Thursday: it's supposed to rain all day after all these days of sunshine. I can't believe that we would be lucky enough to have a beautiful dry day three Thursdays in a row! I'm not making any bets on it, in any event.
I keep thinking about topics for posts but then forget to write them down, and when the time comes to compose one, I'm often at a loss. It is the beginning of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Monkey. It will last until January 27th, 2017. Yesterday was New Year's Day in that part of the world. That link gives some blessings that are traditional for the new year. Here's mine to us all:
恭喜发财 / 恭喜發財 (Gōngxǐ fācái)
'Happiness and prosperity!':-)
