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.
They look really sharp in the family room.
No buyer’s remorse yet.
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.
