Second Try at The Winery

My second try at seeing a concert at the winery was a much bigger success than the first try. The SIL and I got tickets to see Diana Krall and it was a wonderful evening for an outdoor concert. The temperature was mild and the sun was shining. We had nice friendly people sitting around us (though I did experience that on the first try as well) and a blanket to cover up when it started to get chilly as the sun went down.

I think my favorite part of the concert was when Diana said that she was going to play a song by Cole Porter. There was mild applause, so she said "that's about the same reaction I got in high school. Everyone else was playing songs by ... Elvis Costello." She paused for effect, then said, "I got the last laugh." I thought it was pretty clever. (For those of you who don't know, she's been married to Elvis Costello since 2003 and they had twin boys last year.)

Her music was wonderful, as usual, and Sam put together an amazing dinner. The best part was this really intense apricot jelly that we ate on crackers with cheese. YU-U-UM!

It sounds like a great evening. The other night we had sirius music on the tv and Diana Krall sang Popsicle Toes. I love her music.

The company and the food sound great too. I am a little jealous.
