This May in Oklahoma was so awful that current plans are to never spend the month of May here again. I had already decided that I should stay in Southern California for at least one of the Summer months, so I was keeping an eye on June to see if I should just go for May and stay through the end of July. But June is proving to be lovely, and I need to tend to my garden. (I have a co-op plan with Melinda to water her garden plot in June in return for her watering my the month I chose to leave town.) So July is this year's winner.
But don't feel sorry for me - John didn't travel at all and we were 15 miles away from the nearest tornado. I grew some of the most amazing vegetables and flowers ever. I joined the Daughter's of the American Republic (Simone (last name withheld to protect the innocent) was my 9 great's grandfather who fought on the side of the Colonists), made lots of cards for the pregnant wives of servicemen, sewed (one item of which was a copy of the white skirt Sanda has that is just perfect for the hot Summer), and cooked up a storm. But it felt so disrespectful to do anything frivolous - and my blog is nothing but frivolous.
