Link Love: Groundhog Day! Chinese New Year! Snow Day!

Groundhog Day!

Today is Groundhog Day and we currently have about 5 inches of snow here in the Midwest and it’s still coming down! Most of the US is covered in snow, ice or rain. I think today is a good day to stay home, snuggle under blankets, drink hot cocoa and play with your pens. Sure, you might have to work for a little while but make sure your work set-up is warm and cozy today. Put on some warm socks, your favorite sweater and convince a cat or dog to nap on or near you while you work.

2022 Year of the Tiger

Today (technically yesterday) was also the start of Chinese New Year. It’s the Year of the Tiger.  If weather allows, order some dumplings from your favorite local Chinese restaurant (or make your own!). Eat an orange for good luck, have some tea and greet friends, family or furry ones by saying “Gong hei fat choy”, which means ‘Wishing you happiness and prosperity’ in Cantonese. In Mandarin, say “gōng xǐ fā cái” (gong-sshee faa-tseye). (For pronunciation guides, check out this site.)

Stay warm! And Gong Hei Fat Choy!
