At 4am this morning, I was about 75% sure my little stone house was going to end as a pile of rubble.
A 6.0 earthquake hit near Bologna, about an hour south of my house. The strong effects of the quake on my house lasted for about 15 seconds, which is a long damn time when your house is moving of its own accord.
I have felt several more earthquakes today, some light rumblings and some confident shakes. Aside from the earth trying its best to swallow up its inhabitants, today was pretty good.
I am having a hard time finding food that will not make my insides attempt a coup against me. For the past few days I have been eating mostly fruits and veggies. Today I made roasted green beans for the first time and they were fantastic!
Speaking of fantastic, take a look at this colorful character I found in my fennel plant.
I went for a jog/walk today and my energy level was zero. I have to find food that will not make me sick, but will give me the energy to get through a decent workout, so far green beans are not cutting it as power fuel.
Halfway through my jog/walk, it started raining. I was already going as slow as humanly possible, so the rain was just a nice addition.
I couldn’t resist snapping a few more pictures of the snails in my ivy plants. They are so cute!
Especially this baby snail! He is no bigger than the nail on my pinkie finger!
I hope everyone in northern Italy is safe!
