Year of Rabbit
Do you know that it's the year of 'Rabbit' according to the oriental zodiac, yup it works for the Japs too. But it's a 'Boar' for the Jap's version while the Chinese are having theirs as 'Pig'.
Year after year like many other homes, we've been celebrating the Japanese new year in a totally busy and exciting fashion. Definitely not this year though.
Less is more - been trying to convince myself that minimalism is a virtue this time. Can only afford to do this much with this little I'm consuming, how much can you wring out of a hard dried towel really? I'm forgiven for not being able to give home a total clean. Forgiven for preparing nothing for celebration meals and forgiven over miscellaneous obgliations. I. am. forgiven.
It's my year ( ok, the rabbit is let out of the bag ). I call the shots - Bear slaves.
He got this gorgeous new year ornament to honor the rabbit highness at home. In Japan, all pretty things come pricey, but we've decided that only the relevant zodiac years need exaltation. Besides, I deserve it. :P
Correction. We deserve it, me and the little one within. ;)
