Wintry Skies N’ Earthquakes

Let me start off by saying, last night (or early this morning, as in midnight/1 a.m. hour) was probably the weirdest night ever. Literally couldn’t sleep until well after 2 a.m., because my sleep kept being interrupted by…not dogs barking, not a car alarm…but earthquakes.

Yep, earthquakes. Here in good ol’ Central California, we very rarely feel them only because of our placement away from major fault lines, but it’s not unheard of to feel them if wherever the epicenter is has a good-sized magnitude. The epicenter was apparently near the California-Nevada borderline, but it was felt clearly here. Totally freaked me out, things hanging on the ceiling were swaying…not cool!

Photography time! I’m not a fan of the cold, but I’ve always admired how crisp and blue the sky seems to be in the winter months. Doesn’t the sky just look different when it’s winter? Or, maybe I’m imagining it. I took the opportunity this morning to go out into my front yard and snap some pretty winter photos of the bare branches that are beautiful in their own way…

The winter months feel like they have an eerie stillness to them, which is alluring to me. I especially like to go outside at night (wrapped in a blanket, of course) and gaze up at Orion’s Belt, my favorite winter constellation. I’d really be bored without my Sky Guide app, which entertains me to no end!

Speaking of SPACE STUFF…

My outfit-of-the-day totally ties into this mention of space. I’m donning one of my favorite skirts, which I bought very inexpensively on Amazon!

Me, totally not even looking at the camera…

I loooooooove this skirt. Makes me feel like a space queen or something. I’ve always loved galaxy skirts, and I got this one for around $8 or so through Amazon. Paired with a pale pink sweater and black boots, it has a very funky vibe that I like!

Have a great day everyone! Don’t forget to smile!
