Whew, it's hot!

For the past three days we've had nearly record highs. Well, Wednesday was actually a record day. We have been in the high 80's and low 90's! Mornings start out in the 70's. Winds are somewhat high too. It's definitely feeling more like summer than spring around here. We've had the A/C on so that the pugs don't suffer.

Heat aside, it's definitely looking like spring. The trees in are yard are finally all greening with new leaves. The grass has been mowed twice. And the hostas in the flower beds have come back bigger and shinier than ever. We were worried that they had died off last November. The days are getting longer too, which we definitely enjoy. The only thing that is not so great is that this is the start of tornado season. We've already had a couple of warnings earlier this month and more are predicting for later this weekend. Ah, thus is life in Oklahoma. I am sure we'll get used to it, someday. But since we've not even been here a year yet, we're not there. Guess I better clear out the closet that we use as a "hidey hole." It's gonna be cramped in there this year, what with one more body and two more dogs. It was already tight with us and the pugs. The cat? She's on her own. She's probably smart enough to hide somewhere good. Hopefully it won't come to that.

Hi. I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I enjoy it. My husband and I were born and raised in the Tulsa area. However, we have lived in a number of other places, but we always come home to Tulsa. Your blog is interesting to me because it is not often people move from cool SJ, CA to Tulsa. The only other person we know who has done this became part of our family by marrying my sister! Anyway, you mentioned in one of your posts that you were looking for a bagel shop in Tulsa. A new one will be opening soon in Brookside (about 37th & Peoria). We, too, will be checking it out!
