While most of the country was under some crazy weather (hope you are ok where you are!), California was in its usual winter climate, except it’s once again a very dry winter, and it doesn’t look like we will be getting any rain this week either.
We didn’t do much this week. Tennis class, band class (virtual), piano class (also virtual).
We went to a new-to-us park as well as a little Japanese pop-up store/takeout
I finally watched The Queen’s Gambit! I don’t play chess and that’s probably why it didn’t interest me, but when I watched the first episode, I was hooked!
I’m curious about the book now, partly because I read this New Yorker article.
Eating and drinking:
Had some Nian Gao dipped in egg and panfried for breakfast. The Lunar New Year celebrations last for 15 days and so the 15th day is the 26th. So hey, Nian Gao for breakfast still works!
