valentine’s day snow storm

Posted on February 14, 2007. Filed under: The boy(s) |

I went downtown today on the train because of all the snow. Brian and I were to have lunch for Valentine’s day, but he had to cancel to go to Kingston.

I then got a rose from the BCE place.

It broke in half when it fell from it’s resting place during my meeting.

And found itself in the garbage, how sad.

I went to lunch on my own and raced through the snow to get to the office before it closed at 2 for the snow, where I awaited my long train ride home.

I got home, a little tense and disheveled from all the walking, in heels, through the slippery sidewalk snow and slush.

And sat.


Then found that my darling Brian had sent me a gorgeous boquet of flowers, and a huggable teddy bear to make up for having to miss our lunch date. That was a very happy ending to an otherwise seemingly dragging, disasterous day.

jazz fm night with louis armstrong and ella fitzgerald

Posted on February 14, 2007. Filed under: Music, The boy(s), Theatre |

My favourite radio station, Jazz FM, had a fantastic concert last night at the Old Mill with top musicians coming together to put on a beyond fantastic performance. June Garber was beyond fantastic. I adored her voice, her personality, and her performance and must say that she is now one of my favourite people. Brian and I both bought her CD (yes the same one) for each other for Valentine’s Day.

I couldn’t see much of the stage from where I was sitting, so I missed out on seeing all of the instrumentalists play, but could see Grammy nominee (and wonderful trumpet player) Kevin Clark  as well as the leading lady perfectly.

I knew almost every song that they played, which I always enjoy — plus there were at least three favourites in there including Black Coffee. The evening truly was magical and I was in fully mushy lovey dovey mode by the end of it all.

There are 2 more concerts in this Sound of Jazz concert series for this season. I’m not sure that I’ll be able to make it to the one that is still available for purchase, but I can’t wait to see what is in the line-up for next year. I’m not sure that I would go for dinner again, though it’s nice to have it as an option (and it wasn’t overly expensive, which was surprising, plus they catered to my candida diet of no sugar, dairy or gluten, which was awesome).
