Year of the Rat

Note: I started this on Wednesday, but just got back to post today!

Happy Chinese New Year! The kids helped me make panfried pork dumplings and I made fried rice, so we had a small Chinese banquet!

Wishing you...

(Good Luck)

(Happiness)

(Longevity)

(Propserity)

...in the year of the Rat!

Since I'm late posting this, I'll go ahead and tuck in my spinning update, too.

The results of your spun fiber look great...especially when you "embiggen" them. ;o)

Happy Chinese New Year of the Rat (I'm running it all together) to you, too. Glad to hear you celebrated with a Chinese menu. We'll be lazy and go to Sunny Hans.
