Poem for Sunday and Chinese New Year

Collapse )

I had a busy but fun Saturday! Maddy had to be at work at 10 a.m., which is very early for her so we were all up and moving fast, and after that we went to Lakeforest Mall for the second weekend of their Lunar New Year festival, where we saw the lion dance and a bunch of martial arts demonstrations, plus stopped in the Himalayan store and had samosas at the new Curry King. Afterward Paul dropped me off at Karen's for a stitch'n'bitch (I didn't even bring stitching, just my laptop) and went to the library to work on job acquisition.

We had a bunch of chores that had to get done in the late afternoon, like going to Macy's while picking up Maddy to get some clothes on sale this week that may not be starting on Sunday. We went to Washingtonian to return things at Target, walked around the lake, and went to see Lion, which is wonderful -- upsetting and traumatic but ultimately also happy and hopeful (especially the very final images) and extremely well acted. Now we're watching SNL, on which Kristen Stewart just came out and Alec Baldwin would make a better president than Trump!
