Spring Equinoxal Meanderings

Got the inspiration for this post from riding my bike the other day, it’s been quite chilly here and for some reason that I don’t quite understand I’ve always like my head covered when it’s cold –  I love hats, all kind of hats, berets are my favourite (note to self – find a shop that sells decent ones.) Maybe my mother instilled this into me when I was little as Scottish winters were sometimes quite fierce.

Me, my Mum and a dog

I was also walking down the street and actually took off my hat for good reason as it was actually too warm; the Spring Equinox is nearly upon us and I’m happy as the energy is changing again, the balance between night and day, the surge of new Spring energy is starting to kick in; coupled with a Full Moon in Virgo on Saturday 19th March (at its lunar perigee – closest to the Earth).  Here’s an excellent blog post about this Virgo full moon. It will be great for getting my hands in the soil and lots of practical work done. There is a lot going on celestially.

Love is all you need ~ seriously

Sometimes those damn curve balls drive you crazy, you feel there are no answers to anything, hopelessness, fear, so I asked the question ( I’m all about asking the question as it works. It’s been bothering me a lot, about what to do…. Here is the answer

                                                                                     

This photo was taken in a taxi on the way to work this morning, not being a morning person I watched the bus zoom past me… ooops… oh well. I’ve gone past that a million times and never seen it – funny how things pop up when you need them the most. Love… Jeez I wasn’t expecting that; as being in judgement well it was so much safer –  blame, anxiety, worry, hey isn’t that much more fun!

Happy Birthday Gus/Feliz Cumpleaños Gus

For me, his birthday is rather special…. as a kid I’ve always loved birthdays.

I’m much more of a birthday person than Christmas

We all are born and I feel it’s a lovely thing to do to celebrate it, it’s only once a year. I enjoy the whole thing, some people like little intimate celebrations some like lots of people, some like a special gift. Continue reading

Grace and Gratitude

High above, in the clouds on my way to Edinburgh ~ 26th June 2010

I should really be fast asleep, listening to my meditation cd on my Squeezebox, drifting into la-la land, but I’m here getting inspiration for a new blog post instead… the idea for this post came about by having a good day, it’s been a little while since I’ve felt one of those really well and today was it

It’s starting to come back the feelings of grace and gratitude within me, which is nice.

They are such lovely feelings, well really states of beingness as that’s where you are with grace and gratitude they are like sisters who are just close and you know that they get on like a house on fire. The appreciation of life I have is phenomenal and it helps me deal with all the stuff that crops up in my life.  I know on a deep level that everything has an order even the chaos is an illusion and I do my best to hold steadfast and see the grace in all situations.

In My Garden Sitting With Contentment

My Garden  ~ June 20th 2010

I’m sitting in my garden at my outdoor table and chairs, smelling my honeysuckle bush in blossom writing this on the laptop, I love my wireless router… 😀

June is a lovely time in my garden, I’m not the best gardener in the world, but in June my garden seems to get itself together and look fabulous with very little effort from me, my dad helped me quite a few years ago to plant some shrubs and bushes I’ve added a few more over the years and now it has kind of grown into itself. (Though I’d love a man to come round and mow the lawn on regular basis)

I’m sat here barefoot with my feet in the grass, (I’ve got a nice canopy umbrella as I wouldn’t be able to see what I’m typing if I didn’t.) I’m sat here being so hardcore drinking milk (soya)

I’ve managed to get my squeezebox boom from the kitchen outside enough so I can hear it very well (though it’s in the shade as don’t want that overheating) I can change the music as I have my duet remote control. I’m listening  to a shuffle playlist of P J Harvey I’ve already covered my love for her here.

Eddie Cochran – 50 Years Gone

A beautiful Eddie Cochran

It’s 50 years since Eddie Cochran died in April 1960 in a car accident, aged 21, he died before I was even born so no chance of ever seeing him perform his music, oh to have a time machine like H. G. Wells (see his book)
I first noticed him in my teenage years through Marc Bolan of  T. Rex doing a cover of Summertime Blues, I read he’d carried Eddie Cochran’s guitar … lucky, lucky man! Eddie’s music is as popular now as it was 50 years when he died, I’ve selected some of the songs that I love the most, give them a whirl 😀

Sofas and Smoothies

Well,

I was writing a completely different post earlier and this kinda just popped into being all by itself
So this one is first, as it’s about home comforts and food.
Being the Taurean lady that I am; a comfy sofa is the ultimate in pleasure for me 😀

My other sofa – bless, is looking a little tired and it just wasn’t long enough (it’s an important consideration as I have long legs), even though I have fallen asleep on it a million times and squished too many people on it!
It was time for a change

So it comes to the time when a new sofa is to be acquired, luck would have it that my sister was selling hers and I said to her first dibs on it.

It was my birthday last month and my dear dad helped by getting it shipped down to me (we live 300 miles apart)

So after scrubbing the floor and moving the other sofa (might put it in my therapy room, need to measure it to see if it fits first) I haven’t contemplated how I’m going to get the other sofa up the stairs…. eeek
I won’t discuss the state of my stairs after dropping a wardrobe down them (well it was heavy and yes I did it on my own) Continue reading
