When I leave my place I am blown away by heart-stopping drumming coming up Lake Shore. I try to catch the fab drummers on video with my phone. (I fail. I can't see the bloody screen on my phone in the bright sun.) Turns out it's the Sikh community celebrating Khalsa Day. It sure was a pretty parade, all orange and yellow.
I take a few pictures, then walk up (five minutes) to the store and spend 30 minutes shopping. I walk back down and the parade is still filing through!
Later, Mom, my girls and Ceri and I have a birthday party for my mom. I make Lemon Asparagus Pasta, salad and grilled cherry tomatoes. We have cake, and we sing. We enjoy wonderful company.
It's a really good day.
