Serentity Sunday

Wow, what a beautiful day it was yesterday! The sun was shining..... the temperature reached 82 degrees.... a refreshing breeze caressed my face and there wasn't a cloud in sight. It was the perfect day for the the annual Hazel Dell parade in Vancouver, Washington. My roommate Coral's oldest daughter, Isabella, (affectionately called Bella) played her clarinet in the Chief Umtuch ( pronounced Um- tuck) Middle School Marching Band and they were enthusiastically cheered on by the huge crowd that lined the sidewalks and streets.

With the beautiful weather yesterday and today (another 82 degree day) just reinforced the feeling of what is really important in this life...a small town parade...great weather... family and friends and a very laid back weekend.

My List:

1.) My kids

2.) My cats

3.) Good friends

4.) Cool breezes

5.) Picnic lunches

6.) Lemon flavored Propel

7.) Tolerance and education

8.) Music

9.) An old rusty Weber barbecue

10.) Taking life one day at a time
