Chinese New Year 2016

Chinese New Year!!

It's the year of the Monkey so I trotted these out for the day!

 Perhaps it was my sister Karan's garden that inspired me but I started thinking about having a Chinese for dinner.

I decided to order Chinese take out to celebrate but even an order for one is too much so I asked Mom to come over and bring my sister Janet, who was visiting!

It's nice she lives just 'round the  corner!

I ended up ordering extra dinners after all.
with lots of Ruby Red Sweet and Sour Sauce!

It was only an impromptu dinner 
but those are the best kinds sometimes!

Mom insisted on there being a picture of me my oriental top!

My sis Karan visited China recently.  
Karan published a wonderful blog post on her visit...look HERE for some absolutely gorgeous photos and 
a story about their day in China.  

So,  Happy New Year.....again! 

Did you celebrate?  How?

I hear no evil and see only cuteness!

Thank you so very much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence really helped to make it very special. I hope you will return again and again.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!
Chinese takeout was a wonderful idea for the New Year Celebration -- wish I'd thought of it -- maybe I can remember next year. They are always such generous portions, we always have leftovers for two or three more meals!
That looks like so much fun. Al doesn't like Chinese food, remember I talked about the colors of food he eats, lol it would be brown sauce and rice and he doesn't like rice. I have to go out with girl friends to get some most of the time.
