a little birthday party and a big Khalsa party

Today I walk out to go shopping for my Happy Birthday Mom (and me) birthday party later.  It's a luscious day.  Luscious enough for a parade. 

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.

two steel fences, and – ain’t it purty?

I have to walk under the highway pretty much every day. It's not the most picturesque part of the journey. But it is what it is.
