SONday, Day 10 of Our 65 Day Journey

Day 10
A-whole-lotta-shakin' going on!

I hope you are having a very blessed SONday!

Just in case you haven't heard the news.....we have been experiencing a swarm of earthquakes for the last 36
hours!  It has been a little unreal.  The largest was upgraded to a 5.6, which set a record for Oklahoma!  I believe the total count is about 24 total, that's really something!  I think I like our plain ole tornadoes better.  At least with tornadoes, there is a little warning!

But just to keep things in perspective....when we checked the online news after the largest earthquake last night....the two lead stories were Oklahoma and Oklahoma State's wins.  Everybody knows, football reigns in Oklahoma!  LOL

However, once the 5.2 quake was upgraded to a record breaking 5.6, it became the lead story.

Anyway, we have had some disruptions to our phone and internet service....not fun!  But I have used the time to work on my lists and schedules, etc.  Thought I'd show you what I've accomplished, so far.

So here ya go!  Remember, I'm not finished.

Saturday, November 5th -My honey-hunk!!!  We have been best friends for 41 years, married for 38!  I am so fortunate.  I sometimes wonder, if he had known what all the future would hold, would he have still wanted to marry me?  A few months ago, he suggested we renew our vows on our 40th anniversary!!!

He really does LOVE ME!

  1. Cheryl I love how you ahve broken down your list. Oh wow! I so need to work on that for the next three months at least. You did a great job! Hmm. maybe that should be apart of post.Being focus is so important when your schedule is so full and being timely as well. Helps keep on track.

  2. Wow! I had heard OK had one earthquake, but hadn't heard about the rest. I'm not sure which would be better...tornado or earthquake? What a choice!

    Thanks for the football info. I was about to go looking for scores. Even though I'm born, raised and live in PA I root for OU. Go Sooners!

    That is so special about your husband wanting to renew your vows. Congratulations on finding a wonderful man and beating the odds to last so many years. May you enjoy many more together.

  3. Cheryl
    That earthquake scared me almost half to death, it was scarier to me than the tornado I went through just last year.

    I am a big OSU fan so I am very ecstatic about them being #2 GO POKES!!!!

    That is why I am also behind on the Journey


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is always a joy to hear from you.
