Slender and oh-so-sexy; aggravating afternoon for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I absolutely adore the photo I’m posting here tonight. I know, the guy’s skinny, but he has an infectious smile and I like his stringy limbs and smooth skin. His hips are quite narrow and his hands are large, both qualities I like. He’s definitely boyfriend material …. 😉

My afternoon today was aggravating as hell. I am no carpenter, but I figured hanging drapery rods couldn’t be all that tough. WRONG …. First of all, the rods and their support brackets had to be mounted with exact measurements so the valances hanging from them don’t look crooked. That’s not easy when you’re working around furniture on a stepladder. And the wood I’m mounting the brackets on is as hard as concrete.

I broke two drill bits during the process because the wood was so hard. And the brackets’ design made it impossible for me to use my cordless drill effectively. Each screw would only go into the wood about 3/4 of the way using the drill. Then I had to finish using a manual screw driver. But the job is now 85% complete, and I think the valances will look good.

I’m freshly showered now and savoring a cocktail before preparing dinner, here at home. I never heard from my friend about dining out tonight, so I’m staying put. Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Beautiful blond guys; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I look for a boyfriend (or even a date) I lean toward fair-skinned guys with dark hair and dark eyes, that’s my thing. But I can certainly appreciate the appeal of young men with blond hair and blue eyes. I mean, I wouldn’t pass up spending an evening with either guy in today’s photo posts. Would you?

I went to bed with my John Irving novel around ten last night, after trying to watch the movie I, Tonya, which I switched off halfway through. I was probably asleep by eleven, but I didn’t get up till ten this morning.

I suppose I am still recovering from Mardi Gras, but I clearly needed the rest, and now I’m feeling fine. It’s a beautiful morning outside–sunny, still and about 75 degrees F.

Not long after I complete this post, I’ll take a three-mile walk, here on the island. I’m eschewing the YMCA today because I have a project I want to complete–hanging curtain rods for valances in my guest bedroom. It will be somewhat tedious, but once I put up the valances, the room will look 100% better.

By the way, have you ever seen a pair of soccer shorts look so good as they do on Mr. Blondie to the left here? Aye-yi-yi, he’s definitely boyfriend material. 😉

I’m calling a friend after I take my walk, to see if he’ll join me for dinner tonight an Italian restaurant we both like a lot. On Wednesdays, they offer nice bottles of wine for 50% off, and what could be better than that?

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.
