I’ve been off the grid lately and running up and down the roads from northern Oklahoma to southern Texas and back again more than a few times.
I traveled to OWFI in Oklahoma City earlier this month and barely returned home in time to start again heading south down the road to Texas.
We met some cousins in Fredericksburg, TX, enjoyed a wonderful WWII museum, shopped, drank too much wine, and ate too much food. It was a great week.
Last weekend it was Gainesville, TX. It is becoming a ghost town. The huge outlet mall off I-35 is empty. (I had thoughts of a dystopian story winding around in my brain when I looked at it.) We attempted to visit a lavender fest that was full up and sold out. We failed. It hailed on my car in the parking lot during the night and I won $15 in a casino. We had a good time.
I think I’m home for the summer now. Lots of editing awaiting my return and some friends that need my help on a few things. The weeds in the flower bed are very healthy. I have lots to do.
I love traveling, but I think I need to space it out a little better. My suitcase has been in the bedroom for a month in various stages of packing. Time to put it up for a while.
