Diana Krall - A Wonderful Summer Sound #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Diana Krall - Richstream (4)

Introduction:

“To love someone with all of your heart requires reaching them where they are with the only words they can understand.” ― Shannon L. Alder

I was watching a Clint Eastwood movie where Diana Krall was featured at the end of the movie and I fell in love with her sound. It has a jazz feel and she is an awesome piano player. She just recently released a new album by the name of Rag Dolls which is highly recommended but then I recommend all of her music. 

I am going to add music by the name of Wide River to Cross (1) from Rag Doll and Maybe You’ll be There (2) from the Look of Love album which is classic Diana Krall.

Wide River to Cross (3)
There's a sorrow in the wind
Blowing down the road I've been
I can hear it cry while shadows steal the sun

But I cannot look back now
I've come too far to turn around
And there's still a race ahead that I must run

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I have stumbled, I have strayed
You can trace the tracks I made
All across the memories my heart recalls
But I'm still a refugee, won't you say a prayer for me?
'Cause sometimes even the strongest soldier falls

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things that I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

Maybe You’ll be There (4)
Each time I see a crowd of people
Just like a fool I stop and stare
It's really not the proper thing to do
But maybe you'll be there
I go out walking after midnight
Along the lonely thoroughfare
It's not the time or place
To look for you
But maybe you'll be there
You said your arms would always hold me
You said you lips were mine alone to kiss
Now after all those things you told me
How can it end like this
Someday if all my prayers are answered
I'll hear a footstep on the stair
With anxious heart
I'll hurry to the door
And maybe you'll
Be there

You can listen to this music and hear goodbyes and then you can rewind and hear love. I choose to rewind for today and hear love, hope and dreams. I am hopelessly in love and it's my Birthday after all. This music was selected when I was leaving a friend in the summer 2013. I found out that he had deceived me and was married. So, I said good bye. That was then and not now....

I hope this music sets the tone for a wonderful summer afternoon as it has for me.
Peace Diana
I can only say one thing and that is at the end of the day I will be there. Maybe you have decieded otherwise but I have not yet changed my mind... I love you Sug remember that...

My Sunday Menu-T-Bone & Jumbo Shrimp, Re-Fried Black Beans, Asparagus and Salad w/squeeze me - Diana Krall #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

... food is not simply organic fuel to keep body and soul together, it is a perishable art that must be savored at the peak of perfection.”

― E.A. Bucchianeri

I am going to go all out and cook. My Sunday dinner menu will consist of a broiled thin sliced T-Bone and jumbo shrimp, re-fried black beans, asparagus and an avocado/tomato salad.

T-Bones & Shrimp: Broiled
T-Bones
I used Webers steak seasoning, dash of Cheyenne pepper and garlic power with freshly squeezed lemon juice cooked on the lower rack on "high broil" until brown and the turn over, adding more lemon juice and place on the upper rack for about 5 to 7 minutes. This would depend on if you like rare, medium rare or well done, which is my personal preference.

Shrimp
I used Webers New Orleans shrimp seasoning, lemon juice, Cheyenne pepper and a dash of garlic.

Re-fried Black Beans
In one of my previous post you can find out how I make black bean soup. I had some black beans left over from last Sunday (about 3 ½ cups) and wanted to utilized but in a different manner. So all you have to do is drain all the juice off and place a heated pan with two table spoons of oil. Then use your handy smasher. Once smashed, add ½ fresh jalapenos without seeds, a ½ cup of minced red onion and one small minced clove of garlic. Let cook for about ten minutes on a medium heat. When complete and ready to eat, top the beans off with crumbled “Ranchero” cheese and a couple of leaves of cilantro.

Asparagus
I just steam for about 7 to 10 minutes because it is very important to never over cook vegetables. Once complete I add a table spoon of light butter, salt pepper. I like to keep this item light.

Avocado/Tomato Salad
You will need to cubed fresh avocados (remember they must to be firm) mixed in with diced tomatoes (firm), ¼ cup diced red onion and mince the other half of the jalapeno mentioned above. Then add two freshly squeezed lemons.

I always eat my food with freshly made corn tortillas and when it's done I will take a picture.
Buen Provech! Diana

My featured artist this evening is a dinner favorite, Diana Krall. The song selection is "Squeeze Me" (2) with a jazz genre. Also, I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Squeeze Me" (3)
Treat me sweet and gentle 
When you hold me tight 
Just squeeze me 
But please don't tease me 

I get sentimental 
When you hold me tight 
Come and squeeze me 
But please don't tease me 

Missing you since you went away 
Sing the blues most everyday 
Counting the nights and longing for you 

I'm in the mood to let you know 
I never knew I loved you so 
Please tell me that you love me too 

For when I get that feeling 
I'm in ??
Come on squeeze me 

But please don't tease me

Come home my love so that I can cook for you.... I love you!
