then secondly...(drum roll please)
to celebrate the
blogiversary of my Waterblossoms Blog!
(My Muse scampers about...barefooted...
and scantily dressed...
tossing flower petals into the air.)
You can check out my very 1st blog post
HERE if you like...It's even a CACTUS post...
and my first piece of mail art!! :)
Whew! It is so amazing how time flies!
Speaking of which...
I have been out of town for the past week...
...actually in Illinois...
experienced a fairly decent-sized snowfall,
(first Midwest one I've witnessed in quite a while)
several nights of sub-zero wind chill temps,
even an EARTHQUAKE...
...the epicenter of which was 10 miles from
We were awakened in the middle of the night...
3:59 am to be exact...
by the sound of horrendously severe rattling
followed by an enormous boom
It sounded as if one of those huge snow plow trucks
barreled down our street...full speed ahead
ran smack dab into our house!
We thought it was a bomb blast
or even a gas line explosion
somewhere in town.
We were really mentally shook up!
It wasn't until my sister called from Arizona
later that morning to tell
that it was a 4.3 seismic event
and that it
was the lead news story on the Today Show
also on the news headline marquee
in Times Square, New York City!
Later, it was downgraded to a 3.8 event...
I know, all you California readers are saying
"Is that all???" LOL :)
Whew! It was certainly big time for me!
Who would have ever thought, eh?
I promise to get back soon to my routine
and start visiting all your blogs...
popping in here and there,
to see what you have all been up to.
In the meantime,
I hope you find something wonderful
to shake up your day!
Have a really great one!
for TWO wonderful blogging years!
