Muse: Saturday Afternoon Jazz Saunter

Kicking off the Canada Day long weekend this Saturday with no watch and no worries. Heading down to the Distillery District at some point Saturday to grab a bite and check out some of the Toronto Jazz Festival bands playing for free. Especially interested in hearing the Bossa Nova tribute band playing at Dominion on Queen – just the right speed for a lazy Saturday afternoon saunter.

Music to suit: Stan Getz, The Girl from Ipanema

Muse: Roughing it out back … in my garden

Garden Pond, Waterfall, Patio, Pergola

Never feels quite like Summer until after the May 24th Long Weekend, when the garden is planted and the pond is up and running. Nothing like reconnecting with nature and getting lost in the sights and sounds of falling water. Not a substitute for a cottage, but certainly a lot easier to get to on Friday nights.

Music to suit: Stan Getz, Corcovado
