Gong Xi Fa Cai 2009!

The weekend got me very busy preparing for the new year...ummm, I mean Chinese New Year! ;)

My family always celebrate Chinese New Year...and this year is no different. It wen with a bang as always...though no photos for me to share...I can only do so much with just one arm working 100%...but anyway, it was just more or less like last year, so you can view photos here.

The fireworks this year I'd say was more awesome! LOL IT Guy did find a good supplier this time and got some new ones...a lot safer and more spectacular! ;)

2009 is year of the's a hardworking animal so most people say it will be a tough year for most people and that we need to work hard. The Ox does not carry a good relationship with the Sheep, which happens to be my I need to tame the Ox for this year I guess...yet, they say, despite that, it will be good for Sheep born on '79...ooopsss that's me! LOL

For me, 2009 is the aftermath of all the strategic thinking I did for 2008. This year will be the time for me to move from the greater picture to details. As the passing of 2008, which was the year of the rat, will be about clearing out Business MODELS and learning to take care of 'details' little things impact the bigger things and to be in the mercurial mode and water it prepares us for SOME SOLID NEW STEPS. Yep, solid new steps for me!

This year I'm going to finally take some STEPS, small ones but REAL ones in my LIFE and upon the changing the world around me! This year I will once again continue to build on that foundation I need...ha, wish me luck...and join me in my journey!

I offer you ALL Eight gold fish to wish you all
Good Health,
Long Lasting Love...
and Happiness!

Xin Nain Kuai Le (Happy New Year!)...Gong Xi Fa Cai (May Prosperity Be With You)...and May the year bring you blessings of great fortune!

Yeah, I got a little confused with the war between all of the animals mentioned there. Wait, no I didn't. The Sheep is taming the Ox.

At any rate, of course, the small things effect the big things. The big things are nothing but the collective work of the small things.
A building is only a compilation of its bricks.

I can feel things building stareted dec 2006 notched up a level in the summer of last year and now yet again I can feel the lap bar coming down and the man saying to keep all hands and elbows inside of the car...sheep '68. I think it's going to be a hell of a ride...I can just feel it. Thanks for taking the invite.xox

I went back to your pictures last year. They're so neat to look at. I worked, but wore red at work. We did something special for Chinese New Years at work though.
