Sunday April 26, 2015

Today we went out for breakfast with Russell's brother Steve. We had a satisfying meal and pleasant visit at TooJays restaurant, a Florida chain. 

After breakfast we did some stitching at the hacienda. I am currently working on a 3D Valentine's Day house. My hope is that it will brighten our house every mid-winter. 

I have to say that it is a little embarrassing to show this piece to people because even for me -- a gay guy -- it's rather on the girlie side! But hey I have never been much for gender boundaries.

It was a hot day today (93 degrees) and I foolishly waited  until 12:30 pm to begin a long walk around Lost Tree Village, the gated community where R's mother and her husband live. This highly manicured landscape shows what can happen when anal compulsivity meets Community Association. While undeniably lovely for walking I've begun to think of it as Ground Zero in the fight against income inequality. 
One house on my walk

Dinner was a Russell special -- rotisserie chicken with various salads and condiments a la Publix (the local grocery store chain). Dinner was followed by more stitching and yet another failed attempt at television watching (some people just don't learn!).

Ready to get on the boat tomorrow where I can stop being the "plus one" of "my gay son" and become, once again, just one half of that "older gay couple". Better? Worse? Not sure. Seems like I am having issues with my sexuality this evening. Ah homosexuality-- it's the gift that just keeps on giving!
