Happy Chinese New Year!

For those of you who do not already know, this is the year of the ox. I have always been intrigued by other cultures, so I had to investigate what the characteristics are of the person born during the year of the ox. This is what I found:

Year of the ox: 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people (Chinese Culture Center).

Roxy's babies have arrived!

Here's Dozer, or Bowser, or Brutus, or whatever his new owner wants to call him. He's the big one of the bunch.

Aren't they just cute!?! They were born 1/16, so are a little over a week old now. The one on the far left is always sleeping on his back. It's is so cute seeing this little puppy belly up just a snoozin'. The one on the far right DJ calls Moo-Moo because "she is marked just like a cow." The second one from the right is Bowser, or Dozer, or Brutus. The name depends on the person you talk to.

Green Bags...

Have you all heard of the Green Bags for produce? I was skeptical when watching commercials, but my mother-in-law swears by them. While in Wisconsin for Christmas, she gave me a couple to take home and try. WOW, I am sold! My lettuce is on Day 8 still as crunchy as the first day. If I had not tried it myself, I never would have believed how great these bags really are. Check them out - they will save you money in the long run.

Happy New Year!

I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.

~ Anais Nin

This quote sums up my belief about new year's resolutions. If there is something I want to change about myself, I am not going to wait until a new year to do something about it. You never know what tomorrow will bring, if it is change you seek, do something about it today!

I hope you all have a very happy and healthy new year!
