Cute guys with roses; beautiful morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I can’t recall the last time someone gave me flowers. But I wish one the guys in today’s photo posts would come by my house with a bouquet. I might never let him leave. 😉

I built another blaze in my fire pit last night, and it sure was nice, sitting out there and enjoying the flames and the beautiful December weather. I traded instant messages with a young man in Brazil who I’ve been corresponding with for about a month. He’s such a sweetie.

After the fire died, I came inside and prepared my dinner–a salad and leftover Greek spaghetti–and I tried to watch Sunday Night Football but couldn’t get interested in the game. So, I put on some Christmas music and edited sections of my novel-in-progress that I recently wrote. Then, around ten PM, I went to bed and read for an hour before going to sleep.

I was up early this morning, and very quickly got busy writing fresh material for my novel. I wrote for 2-1/2 hours, and now I am done for the day. As soon as I finish this post, I’ll have a quick lunch, and then I will take a three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise and mental relaxation. It’s beautiful outside, about 70 degrees F, sunny, dry and still.

I’m attending a Christmas Eve dinner party tonight with friends from my neighborhood, and I am really looking forward to the evening. My contribution will be wine and a fresh asparagus dish that should be tasty.

Have a nice Christmas Eve, everyone. Who knows, maybe someone will bring you flowers today. 🙂
