One Big Shake

I was awakened at 3:36am this morning by a 2.5 earthquake. That’s not such a big quake unless you’re right on top of the epicenter. Then it can be quite a jolt. First one we’ve had in a while.

I don’t usually make shakes in cold weather, but in honor of the big shake, I made this one for breakfast.*

And speaking of honor, I was honored by Amanda at Baking Without a Box with the Stylish Blogger Award. Thank you, Amanda. I am honored. I'm glad you like my stories about Isaac, my grandson, the up-and-coming foodie.

 Now I’m supposed to tell you 7 things about myself:
1. I live in earthquake country. See above. Our house is very near a small, but moderately active fault. It keeps us on our toes.
2. I moved to California from North Carolina almost 27 years ago. I prefer earthquakes to tornadoes. I still have tornado nightmares, but rarely earthquake nightmares, even though we lived through the 7.4 Loma Prieta quake in 1989.
3. Although I was raised a Southerner, I don’t like a lot of traditional Southern food like grits and greens. But, hushpuppies, YES!!
4. I really don’t like duck. I’ve tried it at least 10 different ways and I just can’t like it.
5. I don’t like beer, either. Wine is another story. I have a large collection of fabulous wines.
6. I love going to the farmers’ market. But you probably know that if you've been reading my blog.
7. I’ve been a hospice volunteer for 12 years.

Now, to pass along the award. Here are the rules as provided to me. Accepting this award is based on the following criteria:

Probably some of these people with great blogs have received this award before, but if so, they deserve it again. They all have very stylish blogs:

I hope everyone is having a great holiday so far!

  1. I haven't felt a good earthquake in a long time, they are always a little scary, but kind of fun too, as long as no one gets hurt! Thank you for passing on the stylish blogger award, that is very sweet of you!
