Sunday lucky sunday

I almost gave up on sundays
but today was lotsa gooood
Start the morn (that was tough..)
with a finish breakfast straight from the oven
nummm smell
I f I could just pack it up
I would hum cinnamonnnnmon all days long..

back to desk
sat and budgeted till I was dizzy

a first time parking spot nxt to accountant
then a meeting
stepping out just in time to meet
our new gate!!
with metal frame and all
just this morn was wondering and askin where the hell I would get one
such glorious goodness

timing is everything my friend
snuggling it up on Matke's automobile
jump by to get screwdriver just walking out
to meet an amazing neighbour
filled to the brim with plants and wooden sculptures
gate delivered with local ethio help
back to return car
chance encouter with long past semi dilousional neighbour that promises to
pay for my wedding
on to a wonderful sandwich
a girl needs her B12
talk and lemonade on the house
on to type away by beer and blues
jam night at Ashan
Get me organic cheeses
and on home

I should sleep now
or paint
or invent a song for Amit's BD

maybe Im fine as I am

A day in a life

Its been quite a day out here
Wake at 5am after an early unplanned sleep episode
[missed my Chi Kong! :( ]
Getting up
resisting the return to warm bed
Ha haa!!

and down to comp writing down all that needs to be

Then out out
to the Garden
see the crazed Yossi attaching any kind of wooden pieces to the Godgo
(traditional Ethiopian house)
then the neighbour that asks for another picture and financial aid
and here they come
40 americanos
spreading out to hear the story
and then work out there and create -
a new table
new raised bed from telephone poles
new irrigation system beyond
fixing mud structures
new red-blue greenhouse

Then quickly tour the grounds
clean it all up
run over to a ChiKong delivery and some tea n cake
run back fro some more talk n falafel (blaah)
then drills
then reciepts
then a 2hr meeting downtown on budget and fundraising
she's gotta be calm

so what if its a big jungle of madness

and now here she is
our heroine
eating gespacho in a resto downtown
working away at the keyboard
wash it down with a beer
lone cowgirl
trying to finalize as much as can be done
before she breaks
and curls up
before another day..
