30 January 2017

Yesterday's Photo of the Day showed the table of food for our tea party in celebration of Chinese New Year.  My friend Nancianne invited seven of us to join her and five of us were able to come.

We were greeted with a lovely tray of tangerines.  Nancianne says that tradition is that if you eat tangerines before the 4th of the new year, you will have good luck. 

(I assume that's the 4th of the Chinese calendar new year!)

There was a beautiful table full of goodies (including delicious almond cookies) and two kinds of tea. 

We just sat and got caught up on our lives and had the best time.

Then today Walt and I went through the ritual we go through 4 times a year, once on Paul's and once on David's birthday(s) and anniversaries.

First buy some flowers.

Drive to the cemetery and leave flowers.

Then go have sushi.

...and so we mark the end of what would have been Paul's 48th birthday.  We'll do it all over again on David's 45th, a week from today.

Gung Hay Fat Choy.
