Penny’s Tips Volume 33

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? Happy Chinese New Year! It is the year of the pig.

  Do you know what you are? My mom is a rooster. If you don’t know what you are, click here.

Did you know that pennies in Bermuda used to have pigs on the back? My  mom has some old ones, she as never been to Bermuda, but someone her Gramma knew gave them to her when she was a kid ( a long time ago).

Happy Year of the Rooster!

Hi everyone! Happy Chinese New Year!  This is the year of the rooster, which happens to be my sign. It is odd that there is a dog, but no cat. Yesterday, I read on another blog an interesting and fun explanation as to why that is. To  read about it click here.

I like having the new year start later in January, maybe I will finally start working on some of my goals for 2017. And if I don’t, there is always the Jewish New Year in September.

Happy Chinese New Year Giveaway!

Happy Thursday and Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Mom likes the Chinese New Year so she can restart her resolutions that she already broke. It is cold in Massachusetts so Mom made me wear a hat: 008Phoooey! I prefer a scarf. This hat is vintage, Mom’s Great Aunt Vicky made this for her stuffed Smurf when she was a kid.

I got to see my Grammie twice this week- I love her so very much. I hope she visit again very soon.

I have great news!! My Purrince Siddhartha finally contacted me.. I wrote to make sure he was OK and he wrote right back and said his Mom wasn’t feeling well. That is a good excuse, I hope she feels better.

In other romance news, Sammy spent some time with Maggie at Mardi Gras. That is 2 dates in one week and we aren’t allowed to date. I am a little jealous.

As promised, I am having a giveaway for The Chinese New Year! This is the prize: 007A red catnip mat and 2 catnip fortune cookies ( that look like pierogi) plus a good luck red envelope that I will fill with catnip for you and a fortune cookie keychain for your Mom or Dad. Just leave a comment between now and Saturday, I will announce the winner on Sunday. You can comment every day for more chances and as always, compliments get you extra entries.
