I got so many compliments on yesterday’s black-and-white photo posts that I thought I’d share two more this morning. The young man to the left reminds me of guys I often encountered during the years I spent my summers in Berlin, Germany. I used to rent a flat there for three months, and much of the time I’d explore the city via the metro and buses. While doing so I’d encounter young men like this one all the time. It makes for interesting sight-seeing. 😉
I woke fairly early this morning, around eight, the first time I’ve risen that early all week. I have an apartment I rent to short-term guests, and the folks who’ve stayed next door for the past three weeks are leaving. Another guest is arriving tomorrow to stay seven weeks, so I will spend most of the day cleaning the apartment and laundering the linens so everything is fresh for the new guests. No, it’s not fun, but I don’t mind. The rents supplement my income, allowing us to spend a little more freely on things that give us pleasure: travel, dining out, and enjoying good wine.
It’s going to be an extremely warm day here in central Florida, and I suspect our beach will be crowded with sun-worshipers. I’ll be inside cleaning the apartment; no beach for me. My boyfriend’s still recovering from his surgery on Tuesday, but he’s doing a lot better. He’ll be back to normal in another week or so, I hope.
Have a nice Saturday, everyone.
