I’m not a big sports fan, but I do enjoy following the Florida Gators football team each season, and especially this year because the team is actually pretty good. They are ranked in the top ten nationally, and today they’ll play another top ten team, the University of Georgia Bulldogs. The game’s at 3;30 PM and I’m going to watch at a friend’s house. We’ll drink a few beers during the game and then get takeout for dinner. It should be lots of fun, so …. Go Gators!
I spent a little time on my observation deck with my friend and neighbor last night, and conditions were so beautiful, I hated to to go inside. The sun was shining, the temperature and humidity were comfortable, and a light breeze blew–perfect fall weather in central Florida.
I spent last night by myself, dining on baked chicken flavored with ranch dressing, salsa and melted cheddar cheese, a real tasty meal. I watched a few episodes of Bates Motel on Netflix streaming.
I was up this morning at eight o’clock, and after I enjoyed a quick breakfast, I got busy at the keyboard writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote for two hours, and now it’s 10:30 AM. Right after I write these words I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, for a little exercise. I have a painting project I’ll work on for 90 minutes or so, right after lunch, and then I’ll shower before driving into the city to watch the Gator game.
By the way, do you find the photo to the right as amazing as I do. I love the way the photographer shot the player in mid-air, just as he caught the ball, and I really like the way we can see the players muscles being put to use as he grabs the ball. What a beautiful guy, too. Great skin and hair. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?
Anyway, I digress ….
Early tomorrow morning, I am am joining a group of friends for a trip to a pretty state park about an hour south of here. We’re taking a trailer loaded up with our bikes and we’ll do some cycling in the park for a spell. Then we’ll have lunch there before returning to Pinellas County. So this afternoon, before the game, I need to lubricate my bike and hook my bike rack up to the trailer hitch on my car.
I need to get busy on things, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Saturday. Go Gators! 🙂
