Ahh, February. Shortest Month of the Year.
Yet Loaded with the Most Holidays!
Of Course, I’ve been working my Butt Off which is why you haven’t heard from me lately…But it’s All Good and We’re Here in the Middle of February!
February is a Great Time for Early Yard Clean Up for Spring. The Groundhog said an Early Spring. I’m Banking on Him.
February is Also the Best Time to Think About the Inside Too…Maybe Flip Flop Rooms for a Welcoming Change. Dining Room Meet Living Room. Try it On for Size. And “Marie Kondo” All the Clutter. It really is an Enlightening, Uplifting Experience.
February is the Perfect Time to Change Up You Too. Peek-a-Boo Highlights? Yes!
Living in New Mexico, I can’t complain about February Weather…I know many of you are dealing with Crazy Cold and Ice and Snow…Hello Hawaii(!)…can we say Global Warming yet??? But this isn’t a Political Post…after all, this is the Blog to Find Some Magic Every Day.
A Fun February Holiday…Chinese New Year…Year of the Pig…Fabulous. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
We Celebrate with a Six-Course Lunch Topped with Raffle Prizes to fund scholarship programs and Ancient Chinese Dances and the Lion. Wow! One of my favorite holidays all year.
Red is the Only Color to Wear for Chinese New Year.
Spring Rolls to begin…best I’ve ever had. For Good Fortune in the New Year.
Baked Chicken…moist and crispy. So You may never go hungry.
Shrimp. For much Wealth in the New Year. Shrimp resemble Gold Coins.
Squid with Asparagus. Delicious. I’m not sure of the New Year significance…other than it shows the great skill of the chef to get this right.
Orange Beef. Wow. I could eat this every day.
Noodles with Shrimp. For Long Life. As long as you don’t Cut the Noodles.
As You Wind through the Meal, the Raffle is Going Strong.
And Look Who won the Last Prize. A Piggy Bank.
The Big Finish…The Lion Dancers! With Drums and Cymbals. Loud!
Feed the Lion lucky money for Happiness and Good Luck All the Year.
February. A Special Month to Remember to Be Joyous All the Year!
There really can be Magic Every Day. I promise.
Looks like you had a wonderful celebration! And I love the peekaboo highlights!
Thanks for stopping by my place today — always love your visits!
Hi Jeanie…Your blog is always a pleasure to visit. The London posts are fun keepers for our next trip…maybe finally a France/England adventure. Those peekaboo highlights were a ploy for a substantial haircut…and I’ve been informed that 13, almost 14 is the perfect age for color. Learning something new every day. 🙂 Happy February!
It’s been a good ride so far in ’19 –
