Happy New Year

Well, we didn't have much of a celebration this year due to illness and Mark's travel schedule. I am barely making it through the days as a single parent. Last day holding down the fort alone, yay!

We always say that holiday cards are not late as long as they are sent out before lunar New Year. They will be late this year. ;-)

We also did not clean the house from top to bottom. Oh, well.

If I can stop coughing, we would like to go to the Huntington on Sunday to see the lion dance.
Feb. 1 (Sunday) 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Celebrate the lunar new year in The Huntington’s Chinese garden, as the Year of the Ox gets under way. Festivities will include lion dancers, Chinese musicians, folk dancers, martial arts demonstrations, and children’s activities. General admission
The Dibner Hall of Science also sounds interesting:
"Beautiful Science" Now Open
Dibner Hall of the History of Science

This new permanent exhibition showcases some of science’s greatest achievements, from Ptolemy to Copernicus, Newton to Einstein. Called “Beautiful Science: Ideas that Changed the World,” the exhibition highlights four areas of exploration: astronomy, natural history, medicine, and light. The installation features approximately 100 of the most significant books and manuscripts in the history of science, showcased here, along with related artifacts and interactive features, in an imaginative, state-of-the-art installation.

  1. A trip to the Huntington Library when I was a kid is still a cherished memory. Sounds like a great celebration they have planned.
