Chinese New Year 2006





Well, it has been a while since I have posted on here. I guess I was just getting caught up in the exciting momments in life that I haven't taken the time to sit down here at my computer and debrief whats new.

First off, I have to say how pleased I am at ensuring that I am meeting my New Year's Resolutions. It is hard to believe that really taking care of myself, and the time/hours that I devote to work in turn can allow me to be more productive with my time.

This weekend was very busy, but fun. I had my Scrapbook Night on Friday with my Best Friend Sara. I met a new friend for lunch on Saturady, and I had a great time. I particulary enjoyed the wrap up with my friends Tara and Julia. It is so great to have these wonderful friends who are so supportive of my trials and tribulations of being a single female, and listening to the experiences that one encounters. Thanks Girls!

My movie night witht the Girls was on Saturday as well. However, we had such a good time socializing, fondueing, and doing tarot card readings, that we never got around to watching the Movie until 1:00. Well, I wasn't able to stay and watch it or I would have passed out, which was unfortunate because I was really looking forward to using our new book to document our movie parties.

Finally, today I had another wonderful afternoon with my Aunt and Uncle, Shirley and Dinno. We met at the New West Quay to see the dragon dancers for Chinese New Year. It was a little late starting but it was quite interesting to watch. They hung lettuce and red envelopes all around the Quay and the dragons would come and take the lettuce and the money envelopes throughout the whole place. There was drumming and a parade through the Quay.

Then we ended the day with a delicous take out Chinese Food Dinner from Hon's in New West and a Yummy Rasberry and Peach Pie from the bakery at the Quay. We returned to their home to spend time with my cousin as well. I am so appreciative of the effor my Aunt and Uncle go through to spend time with us, and how they spoil us dearly when we spend time with them.

We had a good laugh when we watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding. There are so many great parts in that movie. So, all in all it was a fun weekend.
