|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!':-)
same wished to you! and your coffee shop friends. and your senior hikers. and your walking group! :)ReplyDelete
I have many great posts that I have forgotten before I get time to write them. sometimes I do keep a list.ReplyDelete
Fingers and toes crossed that Thursday's excursion ia as good as the last two. It can rain - after dark.ReplyDelete
Leo wears that orange hat with style! Hope you have a good hike tomorrow. It is bitterly cold here now:(ReplyDelete
Leo is adorable! Yes, I've been enjoying the sunny weather too.ReplyDelete
I was born in the year of the monkey, but I don't know what that gets me. I followed your link, and the description partly fits and partly doesn't.ReplyDelete
So Happy New year, and may luck be with you weatherwise on Thursday.
Ok I admit it. Occasional writers block causes me to go back to 2009 and recycle some old posts...;)ReplyDelete
I was going to post a video on facebook of the lion dance we saw at Midtown Global Market. It's always so festive! But I was sick Monday. Although, I suppose it is still the year of the monkey. But timing is everything sometimes.ReplyDelete
Same to you and yours!ReplyDelete
Leo has grown so much!
Enjoy your sunshine while you have it. ;)
Leo looks so good in it I can see why it is a favorite.ReplyDelete
Have faith, the weather man has been wrong many times before. I'm betting everyone will show up.
Wishing you the same.
Does Leo know he is blog famous? What a cutie he is, orange hat and all!ReplyDelete
"Happiness and prosperity" to you also, DJan!ReplyDelete
My grandson has a neckup Bob got him over a month ago. I think he sleeps in it and wears it every day. I hinted this weekend that it might have to be washed at some point! Good Luck for a sunny Thursday!ReplyDelete
He sure is growing fast. Happy year of the monkey.ReplyDelete
Awwwww, he's gonna melt some girls heart pretty soon....he is really getting big. And handsome...ReplyDelete
Leo is very appealing in his orange hat. I love your posts about the coffee shop.ReplyDelete
With three days of sun, you must have been in your garden, right??
Regardless of the forecast, I'll bet ya'll show up and some of you will even walk/hike. Leo certainly is growing and I love the orange hat.ReplyDelete
Leo is such a cute boy. I love his orange hat.ReplyDelete
I also want happiness and prosperity in the new year.
A very happy new year to you, DJan!ReplyDelete
