The Year of the Rabbit

I am really looking forward to the New Year.  Actually, I am more excited about the Chinese New Year, which starts February 3.  It is the Year of the Rabbit.  I like to occasionally buy chocolate mice to celebrate; otherwise the Chinese New Year doesn’t usually mean much to me.

This year, however, I do like the meaning of the Year of the Rabbit.  The year is supposed to be calm.  Restful.  A contrast to last year – the Year of the Tiger.  A lot of craziness and changes.  We moved twice.  We bought a house. 

We had a flurry of year-end activity, in the form of furniture shopping.  We are filling our family room with lots of comfies – recliners, sofa, etc.  This week, I acquired my favorites – a paisley chair and a smallish recliner.  They go together like peas and carrots, even though they are from completely different stores.

Love this chair. Tiny. Cushy. Totally fashionable.

They look really sharp in the family room. 

A yummy gray-ish recliner.

 No buyer’s remorse yet.

Watching football after a workout. Yes, I look grungy.

We have a sofa and Zach’s recliner coming mid-February.  They are from a wonderful Amish store in Mt. Hope, Ohio. 

We are going to be doing a lot of relaxing during the Year of the Rabbit.

Now to order those chocolate mice.  Happy New Year.

  1. Now I’m looking forward to the Year of the Rabbit too. I’m glad you’ve explained why this last year was so crazy. Here’s to a year of calmness, restfulness, and restoration in 2011. I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year!

    We have that same recliner in brown leather! It’s the most coveted seat in the family room – should have ordered two. 🙂
    Happy New Year!

      Ha, they were having a sale – buy 1 get 1 free, but we bought the floor model so it was a ton cheaper…we didn’t want to pay the normal price to get 2. But I did think about it!! That is great you like yours. It is perfect for me. Z’s recliner is a bit bigger.
