Cute guys with freckles; easy Monday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve always thought freckles on a guy’s face lends a certain charm to him. Even the most masculine guy can look a bit boyish with freckles dotting his cheeks, and I think both guys in today’s photo posts look great with theirs. I mean, check out Mr. Long Eyelashes to the left here. Isn’t he cute?

I had a great evening over at my friend’s house last night. I brought wine, key lime pie, and salad ingredients. My friend cooked steak and potato wedges, and the whole meal was delicious. We gabbed and listened to music, and we also visited a tiki bar down the street from my friend’s to listen to a string band perform.

I got home around ten PM and I didn’t last long before hitting the bed. I was dog-tired after all my labors in the yard yesterday. I slept like a sack of rocks, and woke this morning around 7:30, feeling rested and ready for the day.

Today will be a typical Monday for me. I’ve already put in two hours at the keyboard, writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I did the L.A. Times crossword puzzle afterward, and now it’s well-past eleven AM.

In about an hour, I’ll make myself a simple lunch. Then I will climb into my Element to drive into the city. I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session, and then I’ll run a few errands n my way home: gas station, wine market, and drug store.

I don’t have much planned for my evening. I’ll drink a few beers while I prepare my dinner–baked chicken and rice. And maybe I’ll ask my neighbor to join me for a swim at my timeshare.

All right, everyone, I need to run, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Monday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂
