I received a wonderful new calling in church with the Primary
and it fits me. I'm so happy now that I'm in there.
The next day and all-night we had Queensland Heeler puppies. (7) All so very different and so cute.
We survived another tornado aimed at our daughter. So glad she has a this "plan" and knows where to go to be safe. Our daughter Bree, watches the weather. The Moore tornado was really upsetting to me we had heard it was the fastest moving tornado ever recorded and was a wedge that sprawled almost or at two miles wide. I had tried and tried to get their family to rent a house in Moore because they were all new and so beautifully landscaped. Little did I know the houses were new because Moore is the tornado capitol of the world. There's hardly any storm shelters and when I was back there in November, we shopped in Moore and became very familiar with the town. It had great shopping, great places to eat, and even a new big movie theater. All new and beautiful. I remember eating yogurt at the Orange Leaf and looking at all the shiny new tractors across the street. There was a NEW Tractor Supply building and I was so wishing to go shopping for farm stuff that shined like that. I can't even imagine flying tractor parts in a wind and then Bree finding delicate family pictures in the park where she was assigned to work and clean-up with the "Helping Hands" LDS disaster services. I'm grateful for new technology and the App on our phone called, "4-Warn Me."

See: Tip On Singer Serger, The Cheap One. It's Glorious
I altered a wedding dress. I had to pray a lot to do it right, but I have to admit I did a great job. I was blessed because not only did I pray, but this dress was special. It was a sealing wedding dress and I feel that I received the serger ... so I could do well on this dress.
We all joyfully, enjoyed my grandson, Dallin's baseball game and screamed and sang and WON the championship. "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" the moms, dads, and families are so fun with this team. No drinking or bad words, or fighting...just fun. I lost my voice somewhere. Dallin was selected for the All Stars. Typically, a pitcher doesn't hit very well. He pitches like an All-Star and hits like, what do you call the "extra good hitter?" Pinch-hitter? Dallin is that, too. I guess he knows the strategy. Dallin always hits hard and gets the runners on the bases and gets himself to home. All of this is so exciting and it's like I'm watching my son Dustin hitting the ball over the fence every time and just jogging around the bases with a big smile on his face. This is a series of pictures-my husband already knew this kid was going to hit. Surprise not center, not left field, but a ground ball just along the right line.
|Yay! He Bought In Two Other Runners on Bases|

I go from joy to sitting in the parking lot of near CVS pharmacy for my Rx and were not moving. Steve and I are listening to another tornado that's live streaming. The tornado went through our son-in-law, Chip's work in Mustang, while he was there! All went well and they did have a shelter at work and he's now working up in Tulsa. Bree has learned about the tornado this evening, it had lifted-up with it still rotating above Midwest City and took a sharp southward turn and killed Reed Timmer's mentor and others helping chase and report news. Very sad.

I wondered if it was in Bricktown in OKC. Bree's home wasn't far from there. Bree send a message back to us on Facebook (yes, it worked the phone's didn't) and she said it was the same stadium. How scary for all those people in the stands.
The goats just kicked my butt tonight and they hate milking in the dark, but the couple hours wait was worth it-lots of milk. Maybe this is just relief from the storms. I love the sheep and goats...it's the most relaxing chore (?) I do around here and crickets. I love to hear crickets, I don't like to look at them because they're black like black widow spiders. Listening to the sounds of the night and the beginning of summer.
I went to bed with a very grateful heart. My daughter is truly amazing, she's prepared and has a plan. These were both so close, but I knew for sure she would be okay. I was so glad that she was inspired to be physically and mentally prepared for all this. And then went-out and worked helping others. I love you more and more, my shy little Bree full of courage, compassion, and strength. I'm grateful for the prayers for your safety and lots of prayers for others that are needing help and those waiting in the path for the same storm moving on across other states.
I thought Sunday would be easy, but stayed-awake all night thinking about "stuff" and I watched the sun come-up. Why am I so close to so many with Breast Cancer? Or just any cancer, do we live in an area that's just full of environmental problems or is it that everyone eventually gets cancer and I didn't know that before?
Today, (June 3rd) a bunch of animals got loose. Tractors went too fast..I have to pull the tractor to get it started. Just a small ignition problem and I thought Steve wanted me to go faster. 45 mph in the field about through-him-off his tractor. Steve went around about three times in the arena and had to quit. His back, arm, shoulder, and knee just were hurting so much.
The tractor was the best and greatest therapy for him and in the fog, there wasn't a problem of a spark and he could just drive, not answering the phone, hearing pesky animals, or anything..just the disks churning in the rocks. I really hope he can get help with Workman's Comp because living like this is sure difficult. He was my strong-man and now he can't open a jar of jelly. We were both so tired and because Steve can't sleep when I'm awake... we both watched the sun come up. This was the second night in a row.
I went downtown in the morning and rode in the FJ with Steve. It was after my chores and I was hiding a bit, because I was wearing my flannel nightgown still; so tired...but loving the break and short-hop down and back home. I won't do that again. I lost my mind there. So...both of us took a nap.
