We’re just fine, thanks.

One of the joys of living in California is earthquakes. (Sarcasm intended!) Tuesday about Noon, I felt another one. Usually, I’m moving around when they hit, so I’m never sure and seldom feel them. This one I did feel the shakin’. 
Two jolts: as though someone smacked the house. No damage. The cats didn’t even stir off the chairs. Just lifted their heads, looked around, and stretched back asleep. If you’re curious, you can see the data on the USGS website, or any of the major schools in the area like Cal Poly or Berkeley. I’m sure some of my neighbors were reminded to look over their emergency supplies. That’s not a bad thing!
Giggly earrings

In all honesty, our house stands to be damaged more by wildfires than by earthquakes. And that’s only if there’s a really hot, fast moving fire that starts in the gulch the next block over. So, I and my shuttles and organ are pretty safe.

Here’s a picture of the jewelry I’ve been working on from Ninetta’s post.
I’ve been making careful notes, so I should be able to retat if asked…..should…. 🤭
Bracelet and Giggly earrings


  1. Love the bracelet and giggly earrings, well done! I think wildfires are very scary. I’ve never been near an earthquake, so ignorance is bliss.

    1. Thank you! Tornados do more to unnerve me than earthquakes. Maybe it's the anticipation. Earthquakes just happen....tornados come at you....

  2. Lovely! Thank you for tatting them!
    I can feel the fear again, just reading about quakes. Glad that it was a slight shake.

  3. The colourway reminds me of Lego bricks, especially in the bracelet! We are in the seismic zone and have faced a few earthquakes. It's the most helpless feeling!!!
