The First Day of the Lunar New Year Holiday

Hubby is off Wednesday through Friday for the holiday and we decided to go out for lunch today. We walked toward the Home Plus (like a Super Target) because there are a ton of restaurants in that area. As we were walking, we noticed all the small mom and pop restaurants were closed, which wasn't a good sign. The Japanese restaurant I wanted to go to was closed but we saw that Home Plus was open so we decided to eat in the food court there. The food court has a McDonald's, KFC, Korean, Japanese and Chinese food. The Korean, Japanese and Chinese food are plastic models of the entrees in display cases. You choose which number entree you want and proceed to a cashier. Pay and then sit in the food court area and watch for your number to appear in the Korean, Japanese or Chinese prep areas. This is what we choose and it came for the bargain price of 9900 won which is about $10.00 U.S. It was delicious.

How did I spend the rest of my day? This pile of maedeup cording shows how "knot" to store your cording. I had three ziplock bags of cording where I had taken some out from time to time until I had this mess you see above. It took me ALL afternoon to untangle and wind each color. Now if only I could keep my craftroom clean and uncluttered.

Happy New Year! 새해복 많이 받으세요! (Receive many new year's blessings.) We're having our dduk guk here. Well, I haven't made it yet, but we've got the dduk in the fridge. You have to have dduk guk for Solnal to get a year older.

The picture of the maedeup cords reminds me of a song that the choir sang when I was in high school. Something like "till the colors come untangled and the knots are all undone." Big project!

Holly: No, he's going to Seoul with me.
