Today the earth moved under my feet - for about 15 seconds. I was chatting happily with my work friend, probably repeating a story that she's heard a dozen times before. I was just working up to the draw-dropping interesting point of my story when I felt something more than my bran flakes digesting - a strange vibration in my tummy that spread over my whole body. I was relieved to find out that I wasn't just having a hot flash .... our workstations swayed and it became apparent that we were having an earthquake.

I logged onto Twitter and tweets were just starting to come in asking people to tweet if they felt the quake. It  was only 5.5 strong but it was far reaching. It was somewhat ironic that one of the areas that felt the impact most was the G8 secure zone in Toronto.

Mother Earth was taking a little tantrum today. First she grumbled and then spun some damaging tornadoes and extreme thunderstorms. She made her displeasure known and fully exercised her right to protest. And let's face it, she has reason to be ticked off.

On another note, hubby and I signed off at the lawyers and take possession Friday. I can say with all honesty that I have never had a dream unfulfilled ... and by the time I return from Kenya in July, I will have the list fully checked off. Of course I will start a new one, but hey, for a few minutes, I'll bask in utter contentment and gratitude. Lucky me; lucky us. So today, the earth moved under my feet - in so many ways....


  1. Congratulations on the cottage! I love your statement about never having a dream unfulfilled. I feel the same way.

    And I felt the earthquake too, in Western MA!

  2. Congratulations Lyn!!! What a fabulous dream fulfilled - I can already picture the famjams up there ...


I've made it easier to comment - no nasty word verification. So let me know you dropped by.
