I’m sat here with lots of whirling thoughts in my head.. The moon is in Cancer today conjunct my Jupiter in my third house. (any astrology buffs out there know what that means) In plainer terms it means I’m moved to communicate (commune) deeply (Cancer is a water sign associated with feelings). The conjunction of Jupiter only heightens those feelings and expands them. The third house is to do with your local environment and communication. It’s easy for me to write stuff so all this blogging I do comes pretty naturally for me. I work in fits and starts and always on inspiration. I prefer not to force it as it just doesn’t feel good.
The name Easter is derived from the Saxon Eostre (Eastre) The Ancient Saxons in Northern Europe worshipped the Goddess Osetre at the time of The Spring Equinox. The Goddess represents the sunrise, Spring-time fertility and the renewal of life.
Busy, Jeez thought I’d never stop!
It’s great when things take off and move; more on why this happened so quickly later…
It’s good to get your feet under and really sort things out
I’ve always been an initiator, I like moving things along and I follow through sometimes it takes a while (lots of patience, faith and being a tad tenacious is important here) Though of late the moving part I don’t really need to do, which in my book is fab as it means a lot less effort on my part. How does it get any better than that? What else is possible?
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.
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 😀
Lovely article…just read it

I love to cook, bake etc see this, though I don’t have a lot of time and I get tired as I’m quite busy so when I do have the energy and inclination I really enjoy it.
I’ve met a lot of people who were astounded that for instance I would consider making my own white sauce for a lasagna. I like making things from scratch , I’m not averse to using cooking sauces, frozen fruit or tinned beans to save some time (no point slaving over a cooker for 3 hours for beans)
I enjoy the preparation and the process, since I’ve got a squeezebox boom in my kitchen now, I love to listen to music and cook, especially last night I cooked a carrot and tofu flan from scratch, I love making pastry, it’s so easy and you can put different flours in for different flavours.
I followed a recipe from The Vegan Cookbook (and here is the updated version of the book), my copy is rather battered from overuse, well I have had it since 1986!
