Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14, 1985)
A big question mark all day. 24 degrees at 7am & holding but little wind. Till 4pm when a blizzard hit hard for about 1 hour. The evening after that was 22 degrees but little wind again. I’m afraid Toronto can join Calif – “If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes.” Went for my hair at 9am. Dieter has flu & Ray did my hair his way. – back-combing & making it look like every other 70’s.
Walked to fruit store, (Becker’s & Borfs) after, the walking heavy slogging. After lunch did needlepoint. Pat called at 4. She hadn’t heard from Dorothy so I ordered a taxi for 7 (waited 5 min. to get a line). At 5:45 Dorothy called. She had been over all afternoon! So I cancelled the taxi, after calling 5 times. There were 8 of us out & we had a good meeting. The party went well. The cake & strawberries, Valentines, heart napkins & red candles. The hall has a new stove! Eight-Pat, Helen, Dorothy, Nylle, Rose Mac, Irene, Elinor & me. Six last time of whom Doris & Janet were not here tonight. The attendance is ridiculous, but Markham hasn’t met all of January.
Faith hasn’t driven out since she wrenched her side last Sunday.
