A Whirly Twirly World !

HI EVERYBODY!
FOR THOSE OF US IN THE MID-WESTERN U.S.,  
WE HAVE BEEN DUCKING AND DODGING TORNADOES AND MAJOR FLOODING ALL WEEK LONG. AS A CINCINNATIAN, THERE ARE TWO REGIONS, HILLS AND MORE HILLS, SO WE HAVE BEEN PRETTY SAFE. A BIT OF FLOODING IN THE LOW-LYING ZONES, BUT WHERE WE ARE, JUST LOTS OF GREEN, WHICH MEANS RUNNING OUTSIDE TO MOW BEFORE THE NEXT STORMS COOK UP...
WE ARE STILL BELOW NORMAL TEMPS, AND THE RAIN IS DOWNRIGHT CHILLY!

THEN, TODAY (SUNDAY), WE HEAR THE NEWS THAT IS MAKING GROUND ZERO A PARTY ZONE, 
RATHER THAN A SOLEMN PLACE 
(AT LEAST FOR NOW)...
NO, WE WILL NEVER FORGET,
BUT FOR A SHORT MOMENT,
 IT SEEMS THAT THERE IS 
A BIT OF HOPE  IN THE WORLD.
THAT THERE'S ONE LESS RAVING LUNATIC IN THE  WORLD....
THOUGH, I'M SURE SECURITY WILL BE HEIGHTENED TO CODE 'BLORANGE' OR SOMETHING, BUT TONIGHT I WILL REST JUST A BIT MORE SOUNDLY, WITH KARMA DOING IT'S JOB ;)

ATTIRE:
100% THRIFTED
ASKEW DRESS / HANDMADE
THERMAL TEE: SEARS / SOCKS: ? FLOWER BROOCH: GIFT
KITTY CAT: BITTY-BITTY :)
SHE'S BEEN EATING GRASS LIKE IT'S CRACK...
I AM TAKING THE ADVICE OF THE SWEET DESIREE AND TAKING A WEEK OR SO TO GET OUT OF TOWN. I WILL GET TO BE WITH MY MOM ON MOTHER'S DAY :)
( ACTUALLY ALL OF HER KIDS WILL BE THERE ! )
SHE IS DOING SO MUCH BETTER, AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A FEW THRIFTING TRIPS WHILE I AM THERE. PLUS, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE FRESH COUNTRY AIR AND WILDERNESS TO REVIVE MYSELF. I AM STILL PACKING, BUT WILL BE GONE AROUND WEDNESDAY. ( I THINK THE INTERNET WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT ME FOR A FEW DAYS ;) SEE YA TOMORROW !

Aaaaaw that's lovely news Reva - there's nothing like a change to perk you up. Leave a bit of room in your case for a bit of thrifting K? I'm so glad to hear you are safe and well my friend, the news of the tornadoes is so tragic with so many lives lost and frightened, homeless people left to cope. Have a wonderful break my dear xoxoxo
