In February, we enjoyed celebrating Valentines Day and Chinese New Years. We both worked Valentines Day so we kept it simple and exchanged little gifts and candies in the evening. Later in the week, we took a small weekend trip to Mount Princeton Hot Springs. It was snowing, but the hot springs were amazingly warm. You had to run through the snow though to get in and out of the warm water.
For Chinese New Years, we went out to dinner at a local Hot Pot Restaurant. Hot Pot is a delicious broth that you boil different vegetables and meats in to cook. We were able to send red envelopes with cash in them to our nieces and nephews. This is a traditional gift that the older generation gives to the younger generation on Chinese New Years.
I can’t believe the little girl I have been caring for as a home care nurse turned 6 this year. I have been helping care for her in her home since she was 7 months old. We had fun going to her unicorn birthday party. She is so excited to be 6, but I keep telling her, “You are not allowed to be 6!”
