Happy New Year!

Rose Bowl Peek A Boo! I take Zach to Starbucks. We sit in the car and wait. The flashing lights start. A police esscort of the Rose Parade Floats coming into town and lining up. Open the window and take a huge wiff! They smell so good and weird. You are assaulted by the many different aromas. We follow them, they move slow but zach feels like the police are making way for us. Then we do the craziest thing. We drive the parade route. We get hit with marshmellows and silly string. ZACH waves and yells Happy New Year! I motion to all the naughty boys camping out in the steets to go ahead and peg us! We get beemed with confetti! We are stuck and waiting and drunk lady jumps out and decorates out car with ribbon. When we move we've got streemers. It's cook and Zach feels like the Rose King. He is the King! Now I have him watching Dick Clarks Rocking New Years Eve. I am hopping he's in the mood to get up and go see George Lucus and 200 storm troopers march in the parade.

This has to be a good omen for me. Mr. Star wars is our grand pubha!

Happy New Year. I had a low key celebration too, but it's nice to start the year with optimism and hope.

Oh! You are back! Maybe this year will bring cause for Major celebrating!

Wow, I'd love to see and smell the Rose Parade.

I did a writing exercise based on remembering smells through out my life. It pulled up memories that were seemingly forgotten. The smell of jello makes me think of my Grandma, she taught me how to stirr it so it doesn't get like rubber on the bottom.
