Earthquake. You’ve probably heard about the earthquake that rattled the East Coast yesterday. Let me tell you, it was WILD!!! It lasted a good 30 seconds or so here in New Jersey, and our house really felt like it was moving. Unable to believe it was really an earthquake, Mr. Jenners sent me to the neighbors to see if they felt it too … he thought perhaps our house was spontaneously falling into a sinkhole or something! The fact that the epicenter was in Virginia and we felt it so strongly in New Jersey amazed me. I was convinced it was centered in our town. Once again, I am in awe of Mother Nature.
My Own Personal Big Brother. Those of you who fixate on small details may wonder what Mr. Jenners was doing home in the early afternoon yesterday. Well, because his company was acquired by another company last year, he is now able to work from home most days of the week. It has been quite the adjustment as we are now BOTH home all day together. My free-wheeling “let’s take a break from the housework and blog/read” days are over as Mr. Jenners has a habit of quietly sneaking around the house and
spying observing me. I’ll be mopping the floor and suddenly he’ll appear behind me and scare the crap out of me. It is nerve-wracking. It’s like I’m living in Orwell’s 1984, with Mr. Jenners assuming the role of Big Brother. (Too bad I don’t weigh what I did in 1984!!) On the plus side, he has taken over cooking dinner (though I’m responsible for side dishes). As I DETEST cooking, this has been wonderful. And I’m not ashamed to admit that he cooks better than me. Still, I cannot lie … I’m looking forward to the days when he has to go into the office.
Mr. Jenners Photo of the Week. Mr. Jenners got a new camera not too long ago and has been taking some really awesome photos. I thought I’d start sharing one of his photos each week, starting ….. right….NOW.
