Our Lunar New Year Tablescape

Happy Lunar New Year! 2021 is the year of Ox. “The ox, in Chinese culture, is a hardworking zodiac sign.” According to a Hong Kong-based Fengshui Master, Thievery Chow, “People born in the Year of the Ox will be facing their ‘Ben Ming Nian’ — your own zodiac year,” so there will be more changes and instability in general. A few other zodiac signs will also be clashing with Tai Su in various ways, (Find your sign here.) Dragons may deal with challenging friendships, while people born in the Horse and Dog years may deal with more gossip and unexpected matters.People born in the Year of the Goat will be facing Tai Sui (Ying Tai Sui) this year, “meaning there must be a massive change ahead of them,”

Sunday–Garden Fresh

We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.

Our First BBQ over Quarantine

We had a quite busy schedules over the past weekends—2 of back-to-back long runs, our first-time ever BBQ over this strange time and Sunday cocktail party. To be accurate, this is probably our first ever back-yard BBQ. And yes, we got a hand-down BBQ charcoal grill and it looks pretty vintage and cute.  We took a quite time to clean the whole thing. Other than that, we really enjoyed this new-found backyard activity.

Our mojo is to create memories over this quarantine time from the very beginning. So besides packed zoom meetings every day, we love to relax a little bit over the weekend. It is always so much fun to take time to prepare food, set up the table and craft home-made cocktails.
