decemberallseasonswidget_4269-copy-copy   Hello ALL SEASONS bloggers,

Sunday January 8 – Wednesday January 11

Thank you all for your beautiful posts last week and your heartfelt New Year’s wishes! Not that January is an indicator how this year will turn out, but just the same wishing you an awesome 2017!

Nature made sure we would not get bored with the after-holiday blues.  Tuesday night (Dec. 27) we were surprised with a 5.7 earthquake Richterscale (epicenter in the state of Nevada). Not a newbie to earthquakes. Several, and two big ones experienced in Southern California.
Since I was under the impression earthquakes almost never happen in the mountains, was a bit puzzled when our barely 20 year old house started shaking and loudly rattling. Five min. later, a looong aftershock, and an hour later almost as strong of an after shock but not as long. Too alert to sleep that night.

On New Year’s Day 8 pm, snow had fallen! Next day, still snowing:)





It was the perfect background and excuse to stay close to the wood stove. I see something beautiful in the fire … what do you see?




Reading a book, while having a hot coffee with apple doughnut (made by hubby) is perfect for now.
The last is a New Year’s tradition in Holland, my country of origin. (As little kids we would go to our neighbors with some apple doughnuts and get a little (often monetary) treat in return).

  1. Hi Jeanette!
    The snowfall, fireplace and hot coffee are so complimentary to one another 🙂
    Oh how I wish to be there!
    Happy New Year!!


  2. We experienced a 5.8 earthquake in 2011–rare on the east coast. It was centered 150 miles from us, but felt throughout the state. Love the photo of the road and snow-laden trees. Not sure what shape I see in the fire, but it has a sword! A book, a donut, and hot beverage appeal to me right now.


  3. Earthquake one day…snow the next! Crazy insane weather! Of course, you know, it was no different here. in the 70’s one day & then in the 20’s the next. Insane. Lovely images. Glad I was able to make it here this week & thanks for your comment on my post.


  4. Thanks for your visit and nice comment. By the way: I’m not a Russian, I’m only somehow connected in my mind with Russian spirit and language.
    Masha is not my real name, only a web-nick…


  5. When we lived in the mountains of New Mexico we bought earthquake insurance, which was fairly low priced because of the lower risk. I got it because I thought about how those mountains had been formed by huge movements of the ground and figured that maybe they were not quite finished being built!
