…with a beautiful DIVA who celebrates her Birthday today:
… and with a beautiful thing what happened yesterday… guess what?
And look what Shoko&Kali, the Canadian Cats, sent to me:
it is one of the traditional chinese red parcels for chinese new year! There is a monkey because this year is the year of the monkey and my momma is one too, so maybe she has a little more good luck this year…. and then there are flower seeds (furgetmenot) for creating something what will grow… and the red envelope and the lucky coin 1 CATnadian dollar, we will put in my wallet for avoiding galloping consumption there and then there is the symbol for prosperity luck and good health (oh yeah we can need that).
Shoko&Kali even included a lot of interesting reading-stuff about the chinese New Year, there are rules for givers and do’s and don’ts… do you know that it brings bad luck to give something away what’s connected with the number 4? And do you know that it also brings bad luck to give sharp things away like knives, needles or high heels? And shoes generally are a not so good idea for a gift…. I like it that there is a meaning behind everything you get or you give away… and I will read and learn more about chinese culture, that’s for sure.
Shoks&Kali also included a bag with ginger candy and the famous chinese fruits what are dried and sugar coated…
+,,,,,,something happened what was totally crazy…. My momma just worked on a giant meow-graine and before that torrent of pains comes down on her head she has to feed it, preferably with super sweet things like meringue or crullers…
So she grabbed that bag and threw all that coconut strips, the oranges and the I-don’t-know-butt-tasty-fruits in her mouth…. and guess what? That was so over-hyper-sweet that the meowgraine couldn’t stand it and disappeared… and that was beautiful too, because so it couldn’t ruin two days of my mommas life…
maybe the chinese amulet for good health worked immediately as we placed it in my crib?
MANY THANKS TO SHOKO&KALI AND THEIR FABULOUS PAWRENTS!
