I was sitting on the couch, watching a recorded episode of CSI NY, Izzie was next to me sound asleep and I was crocheting a caplet sweater.... then there was a rumble through the house... another earthquake! There seems to have been one a week for the past month now! This one was a 4.7 and the epicenter was about 40 miles from my house, but I felt it pretty strongly! I wonder if these are all leading up to another big one?? Maybe I'll work on earthquake proofing our house this week...

This weekend has been so great, and so relaxing! If only the weekends were longer and the house wasn't still a mess. I just can't seem to find motivation for cleaning when its this stinkin hot! 85 degrees at 8pm is just not okay for May. I think I'll go pour myself a tall glass of ice water and get back to my crocheting now. Good night!


  1. I'm glad that you're ok. Are you on the west coast? Here it is more like 60 degrees. We are experiencing another cold front supposedly until the end of the week or so.

  2. I hope there is no big earthquake coming!! I've only noticed two in my life and I was so scared. May is getting very hot here too. Summer is just around the corner.

  3. Libby, I live in southern California. Just north of LA. I wish we were having some more cool weather because once summer gets here it can get unbearable!

    Alhana, we tend to get small earthquakes every once and a while and for the most part they're not destructive, just startling when they come out of nowhere. They just seem to be happening more and more lately. The only large earthquake I've experienced was when I was a kid back in 94. It was in the middle of the night and school was closed for a week or so. That one was destructive and took down a lot of homes. It was a 6.7 and we were a lot closer to the epicenter.
