We were talking on the phone last night and my New Beau was telling me of his conversation earlier in the day with a friend he hadn't seen in a few weeks.
When asked what was new, if he was seeing anyone, New Beau said he'd met someone (that'd be me, in case you hadn't caught on yet) that he reallyreally likes, and that we've been spending time together that he's reallyreally enjoyed, and he'd reallyreally like his friends to meet me.
I'm getting the distinct impression New Beau is becoming rather fond of me. He's even agreed to forego the Sunday afternoon baseball game with a longtime buddy (they have tickets to every other Sunday home game and have been going together to the games for years) to join me at a family gathering in honour of my uncle's 80th birthday. I think that says a lot! It'll be a whole crowd of my extended family to meet in one fell swoop. But he's game!
And I will freely admit that I am becoming quite fond of him as well. He's treating me very well, is respectful and funny and kind and affectionate. And willing to talk about lots of stuff. Doesn't seem to have any hang-ups that I've noticed... and I spent last weekend at his place.
He's coming over for dinner tonight after he's finished work. I've had a hankering for San Diego-like food with the summer heat we've been having so I surfed the 'Net for this recipe:
I was at a loss for the chipotle hot sauce until me nephew messaged me, saying he had some that my niece (his sister) had brought back from a shopping trip to the USA.
It's going to be a sunny and lovely 25 degrees today and with the sun beating on the balcony until well into the evening, I think we will have the perfect summer setting for fish tacos, fresh guacamole with tortilla chips (and the chips have sea salt and a bit of lime on them) plus some cold drinks.
I'm lovin' summer now!
