you're getting sleepy

very sleepy...verry verrry sleepy

i won't be here for a while...for a long-ish short while...for a short-ish long a week or so...

you are getting sleepy...siesta forever...sleepy...

but i'll be back when the day is new, and I'll have more ideas for you. and you'll have things you'll want to talk about. i will too

award tour

blog asheville is a site that has a huge list of the blogs of all ashevillans, along with some current events updated regularly, and all kinds of good links on the side. some really interesting people have sites in asheville - hangover journals and edgy mama and ashevegas make me laugh regularly. i emailed blogasheville last month to see if they would add me to the list and they did and i just saw skippy haha is nominated for "best design" at next week's blog asheville awards. how about that. so thank you to whoever nominated me. there's not much to it, here's the post about the header.

my trip is coming right up and i have a couple days to spend in barcelona, Cataluña , España, espana viva. anybody with advice on where to stay or not to stay, what to do or not to do, what to see or not to see, if you would be so kind as to leave a comment here or email me, i'd be much obliged, gracias.

in the spirit of cheap travel, here is william o. johnson's poem-

"Can we buy three"?
"No only one!"

I want some pizza, Daddy you are no fun!"
Disneyland, Knots Berry Farm, The San Diego Zoo
and anywhere we go,
Daddy always packs the car full of food
because we are on a Budget.

On a cross country trip to visit family and friends, he had a
calculator to track every penny that we could spend. We
brought our own juice, and numerous healthy snacks,
he said we're saving money,
and you know what followed that!
"We are on a Budget!"

We go to the drive-in, so that we can bring our own food.
Dad gets all excited, and he's in a great mood,
as we take our place in the movies,
he pulls all of the food out of the trunk
and as the movie starts
we begin to munch and crunch.

I heard dad lean and whisper,
"It's a good thing we're on a budget,
we can come to the movies every weekend."

peace haiku 44 - 50

sip peppermint tea
hot cold hot cold spread hot cold
frosty warm heart balm

if we're all divine
then to believe in yourself's
to believe in god

structure & focus
doesn't let you add fluff fluff
haiku will you write

not so much lotion
as the act of applying
that promotes good health

respect goes both ways
& with it dances kindness
when they're gone they're gone

if you try you can't
fight the inevitable
you can quit the dread

this blow you've dealt will
end up being the best thing
that could've happened
