earth quake came from Santa Monica in the early morning


This earthquake was 3.6, happened around 2:30 in the morning, felt pretty strong but it was quick and so I willed myself back to sleep not too long after that.
I was waiting for the aftershocks for a while and was in bed thinking I should go back to sleep since it was only 2:30 am. I waked up right before that as I usually do when this things happen, I don't know why and I don't know it before it happens.
I can't tell about the aftershocks as I was asleep, which was a really big accomplishment to me, I feel lucky if I can sleep after that, considering I can never get used to the earth quakes and it's always distressing, whether it's a day or night.So right now it's a bright day, not sunny yet which is fine and I'm trying to do a million things at once, again, but not before the scrambled eggs and some ginger tea to warm up and speed down.

*Refresh and reinvent... And have some tea...

hazelnuts, cookies and a strawberry on top.



melt chocolate and pour over properly positioned hazelnuts sitting on top of the cookies
strawberries are making it all brighter

I didn't make this but I plan on doing so some time.
It looks like if you bake or buy some cookies, melt chocolate and pour over properly positioned hazelnuts sitting on top of the cookies you'll get a replica of this looking as good as it taste little sweet rounds.
This cookies are thin and crisp but I think I would try to make it with a softer kind of cookie too.
The strawberries are making it all brighter and more taste and color balanced.
