easy to live with . . . . ?

I like to think I am very easy to live with
oh yes I left the wheel barrow out
no that’s an experiment in there
please leave it. No it has to stay in the sun
that’s part of the experiment.
I know it looks like crap but it’s not!

I am very pleasant and easy going
Hey that’s my pile of sticks
Do NOT move them!
I’m not done with them yet
I know it’s been a while.

Do you want chicken or fish on the salad?
WAIT, don’t mow over those
the’re chives, let me pick them
I guess they spread out of the herb garden
and went a little wild. I didn’t notice.

I don’t care, if you wanna go-GO!
I’m in the middle of a painting
I can’t stop or I might lose it
if I lose it, I probably won’t finish it.
Say hi to everybody for me. I’ll come by later.

I’m going to the post office, got anything for me to take?
I’m mailing cards and art.
No I forgot again.
Well, I’ll just wait for the next bill.
We still have gas and electricity.

Okay, I’m all suited up, got some tunes
and a cart full of tools, lets get to work!
I had to go to the bathroom
I was thirsty
My blood sugar dropped
I was petting the cat
I got us snacks
I found a weird bug LOOK!

Lucky for you Buddy, I cut my own hair
and don’t need new clothes
I’m hot open a window
I’m cold, turn on the heat
I know it’s a pretty narrow range of comfort degree.
Oh are these your shorts? he he.
I declare squatter’s rights.

Let’s clean the house together!
I know I haven’t washed the dishes in 4 days!
yes I’m still crying about that possum
he wasn’t just a regular possum
he was my friend.
I knew him for like three years!
We ate apples together.
He trusted me.

Yeah it bites that we lost our investments
but we are use to living in frugality
we’ll find a way to survive.
Let me draw a mustache on you and take pictures
oh come on be a sport! Let me put this fake chicken
on your shoulder and let’s see if anybody notices
I know I couldn’t stop giggling in the express checkout line
that guy in front of me had a leaf in his toupee
I wanted to carefully snatch it out without him noticing.
but my hand kept shaking cuz I was laughing.
now he keeps looking at me.
I wanna know the story of how that leaf got in there.

Let’s only speak in words sung to the tune of Old MacDonald!
I’ll go first.
I broke the nozzle on the hose
E YI E YI O hhhhhh
And squirted water in your truck
E YI E YI O Noo!
With a squirt squirt here
and a squirt squirt there
here a squirt, there’s a squirt
Everywhere’s a place to squirt
ha! now I sprayed you on your shirt.
help!! can’t catch me!! It’s k i n d a funny. . . . .

. . . . . . .

aww . . . it’s your favorite shirt?
hey it’s just water, you looked hot anyway!
shouldn’t it be washed, how about today?
Smile silly.

big yodelly finish now.
E YI E YI O hhhhhh
oh what the hell,
we’re all gonna die someday
might as well enjoy some time to play
i know it’s a crapppy rhyme
I don’t give two cents or a dime,
E YI E YI O hhhhhh!!!!!

perhaps I live in a state of denial.

yvonca, fun, play, life

enjoy making direct work from natural materials in my prairie and wildlife sanctuary.
i am a very restless person and I work in many different ways with a variety of media.

    …“life can be so damn hard…” that is an understatement, especially when you start to realize your role in making it hard compounded with what life throws at you…all I can say is…go figure…

    On the brighter side my cats Max and Axle have been reincarnated as bluejays. All I need is to photo document this incarnation for them.

    Hope you are having a great day today….

  • oh YAY!. I love when that happens. yes pictures please.
    I’m trying. I got sick here 2x now from farmer’s spray of pesticide.
    wishing you a wave of sun.
