Year of Dragon

Chinese Money God symbolizes prosperity and good life. On new year's day it is customary for each family to wellcome the Money God to his household by hanging his picture on the gate. My aunt found this little ceramic figure in a shop in China and gave it to me. It is just in time to celebrate the Year of Dragon, Jan 23rd, 2012.

Orange Power

Persimmons are in season and we had a fairly good crop from our garden this year. Sweet.
