OK, I have really learned a LOT about myself in the last couple of days.

That silly little blog survey really got me thinking. 56%. Wow, I really would have thought that I was more "open-minded" than that. Marianne suggested that the survey might not have asked the right questions. Hmmmm...just how tolerant and accepting am I, really? OK, I have absolutely no problem with people of a different sexual orientation, or ethnic background. I am compassionate and caring toward people suffering for any reason, anywhere. I am pro-choice. Those are easy. Big deal.

Am I tolerant and accepting of those who are more "conservative" or "liberal" than I may be? Do I respect the rights of those that are more or less "religious" than I am or more or less "green"? What about people that smoke, or don't eat meat, or pronounce the T in the word often? How tolerant and accepting am I of the President?


I guess I have some work to do. I will do it, take that to the bank. Please be tolerant and accepting of me in the process.

I learned a little something about myself today.

You Are 56% Open Minded

You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.
Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.
But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.
You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.

More springtime in Oklahoma

Since all of my flowers were choked out in the cold snap last week all I have now is some ominous looking clouds to share.

I heard on the radio this morning that on the list of cities with the worst springtime allergies, Tulsa was ranked #1. WOO HOO we finally won a title! I can't wait to see what that trophy looks like. But as I looked around, I saw things like this and decided the allergies are worth it...Tulsa is beautiful in the spring.

My tulips are beginning to fade a little, but here they are at the peak of their glory...and the azaleas

Tulsa is the heart of green country, no place prettier in the spring...or more unpredictable. This is what I saw when I got home this evening.

Whatever. The temperature is supposed to drop into the 20s over the next three nights. I have about $4 zillion worth of bedding plants that are probably not gonna make it. Oh well, I guess I can always plant again. My husband always says, "It's only money, we'll make more." Sometimes I think I can detect a hint of sarcasm in his voice when he says it, could I just be imaging that?
