Lupuschki's Jazz Archives Volume 1

Lupe likes to lie next to the computer when there's jazz playing...


This is his very favourite tune.
 It has to be played over & over again if ever he goes on a car journey... 
It helps him to remain calm!

If he can't get onto the computer desk...
 The next best thing is the cabinet beside it, where he drifts away listening to some soothing tunes.

Daddy sometimes gets a bit carried away & turns the volume up...

Which just grates on his nerves!

Have a good weekend everyone... 
We're off to work now & have guests in later, so busy, busy!

Well, Lupe has great taste!
We had a cat who loved me to sing Ella Fitzgerald to her, "Every time you go away, I cry a little" was her favourite. Her sister would run from the room when Elton John's "Funeral for a friend was played",and one boy cat we had would love to be held in Chris's arms and dance to "Papa was a rolling stone". Cats are great music critics!

LOL Lupe sure looks ticked off in last photo.
I've a special spot for black cats.

He's a sweetie, but lets us know when he's not happy!
That's wonderful! One of our guests recently was amazed at how the kitties recognise words & phrases... Such intelligent furry friends!
He's hilarious & beautiful all in one!

Awww, I just love his expression in that last photo - he really does look angry at that song!
I hope you had a chance to enjoy today's lovely weather - blue, blue sky and sea and SUNSHINE withoiut the icy easterly wind. I'm quite sunburnt, having dozed off on the beach after my lunch.

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...

Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
