Sunday Family Get Together

April 27th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

I’m planning on having a very good Sunday with my family. My younger son from Seattle is in town for 4 days, and yesterday he and my older son helped us make some major changes at the studio, which included moving a huge movable wall, and then transferring a huge workshop area from one place to another and reorganizing same. Exhausting, but very satisfying. I was so grateful for their help.

Today we are all going to older son’s to attend my oldest grand daughter’s last piano recital. She graduates from high school this year. Afterwards, a big family dinner. All three of my kids, two of their spouses and other two grand daughters, one 16 and one almost 2, will gather to celebrate my older son’s birthday and everything else.

Good food and good company. Even though it is rainy and gray, it will definitely be a good day.

Earthquake in the Midwest

April 18th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

I was lying in bed awake due to insomnia very early this morning when I felt the bed shaking. I was kind of groggy, and I thought it must be the cat scratching and making the bed shake. But I realized she’s too small to make the bed shake like that. Then I thought it might be my husband having nightmares. He was sound asleep, not moving at all. It went away, and then started again, and I got up and walked around the bed to see if I could figure out what was happening. I was stumped and got back in bed, and then noticed that it felt like it might be coming from under the bed. In my dazed stupor, I idly wondered if this could possibly be what an earthquake feels like, not thinking for a minute that it really was one.

Woke up to the news of the quake, realized instantly what all that shaking was about.

Never been in an earthquake which I felt before. Glad it was only a mild one.

Where am I?
