Busy and a whole lotta shaking going on

Yesterday  and today I worked my buns off, (needless to say I have still got a lot left to work on, lol).  I took everything off the floor in the garage, moved the classic car out and power washed the floor.
I then washed and waxed said cc, this car is a mile long, not quite, but when you are waxing it it seems that long.  She sure did shine, I have finally decided to put it up for sale, its not getting the use that it should and its not the same without OH.  I then washed my car and put the garage back together, put the cc in and then washed down my driveway.  I thought after four hours of manual labour it was time to call it a day.

There was a beautiful breeze today, so laundry done, ironed and put away.  Then I decided to cut my lawn, however, the mower wouldn't stay running.  I get so frustrated, I don't know whats wrong with mechanical things, so therefore can't fix it, so have to wait for sil to come and look at it, so the grass is growing and growing and I cleaned out my garden shed instead.

This afternoon just before 2:00 p.m. I was downstairs in my basement,  (I have a recreation room down there), just looking as some blogs on the computer.  The screen started to move and then my chair started to shake.  I thought, maybe I had been doing too much and was going to pass out so I went upstairs for some fresh air, in my dining area my light fixture was swaying,  we were having an earthquake.  After looking at the news the epicentre  was down in Virginia U.S. and was 5.8 magnitude shallow temblor so the shaking was more widespread. Hope everyone down that way is fine.
Needless to say I am pooped from all the work I have been doing so no sewing or quilting has been done.
DD2 came through her surgery OK.  I can't believe it, she was wheeled to the OR at 8:00 a.m. today and was home by 1:00p.m.  No more gall bladder or stones to worry about.
Time to think about dinner, I am starving.
Hope everyone had a good day.

Those shakers can be quite disturbing! You can be glad you weren't upstairs, it shakes even more so. I'm glad you are okay, and got so much done! Fix yourself a good dinner, you need those buns back there for when you're sewing, lol
I'll pray you get a good price for that beautiful car ~

My prayers to everyone affected by Hurriance Irene.

Sounds like you got lots done today. What a beautiful car, I bet you have lots of memories of driving it.

Glad the op went ok too.

We have just heard on our news about the earthquake in Virginia and, like you, hope everyone there is OK. You certainly had a busy couple of days and are due for a more restful time now I should think. What a great car! Fingers crossed that someone will come along to buy it and enjoy the experience of such a classic.
