and where will i be all this weekend?
outside. in the heat. what the hell?!
we have friends coming down for the rest of the week. i'm gearing myself up for battle...
well, possible battle. not with both of them, just one of them.
she doesn't care much for me, but puts up with me because her husband and i have been friends for...well, forever. for crying out loud, though, i met her the same dang day i met him.
we've had some run-ins before, and i think she's found that i will push back when pushed.
it's just weird to be looking forward to someone visiting, while at the same time, mentally preparing for a possible battle.
more to come.
in other news....
my girl, Linda, for whatever reason (i think the check finally got there!), has decided that mine is an artistic blog.
so - here's the rules:
Recipients of this award must strive to pass it along. Indeed, one good turn deserves another.
(1) Pick five blogs that you believe deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
(2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
(3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given him or her the award itself. (I know those of you Texans won't go that!)
(4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here: Arte Y Pico
Tug- the girl's got an eye for photos. and she lives in hell, so you know there's lotsa photo ops there.
Susie Q - gaaah. i want a tenth of her talent in the world of photo taking. not only that, but visiting her little corner of the internet is like walking into a perfectly temperate pool...refreshing and restful.
April - my girl bares her heart on her pages. 'nuff said.
Melissa & Mama P - writing is my first love. these two do it professionally, but understand the power of the written word and still manage to infuse their writing-for-fun with humor, pathos (ooooh! triple word score!) and power.
awards are cool...even if i didn't get a dang ribbon at the fair (i've let it go. no, really.), but i think all of us blog because we like it. not because we're looking for accolades.
but they are nice. thanks Linda...and thank you, you, you, and you, lurking in the corner, for reading every day and going on this crazy ride with me...even when my writing is crap.
