As I write this I am sipping on a martini prepared for me by my dear hubby- possibly because I have been working my sizeable backside off all weekend, possibly because I gave in & let him buy the large screen plasma that he has been wanting or possibly because he just wanted to make me a martini. Either way it tastes just great.
Five Foot nothing has just gone trick or treating. She looks very devilish in the red hooded cape I originally made for a red riding hood costume & some cool little devil horns and she has had the lecture about how Halloween is really Samhain (Blessed Be) and an important day in the pagan calendar. She listened carefully, rolled her eyes and said “yep, whatever…”.
For those who have been reading my blogs over the last few days, the arrival of the warmth & humidity has also meant the arrival of the 1st of the ant infestations in the pantry. I figured this was the Universe’s way of telling me that I needed to bring the pantry up the de-cluttering list. And so it is done. The biggest problem I have noticed about de-cluttering, though, is that there is only a finite amount of space in the council bins. I have been creative regarding recycling, but now have a stockpile of stuff that I reckon will take a few weeks to throw and another stockpile that I need to list on ebay. Hubby, for all his martini making prowess is crap when it comes to throwing out & cleaning up…but, he makes a bloody good martini, so all is forgiven!
On the Blogs
This martini is goooooood…. Lots and lots on the blogs. Rather than listing everything over the last couple of weeks, go for a cruise. Lots of cool pics to brighten the site a tad & lots of posts about Scorpio…and doesn’t everyone want to read about Scorpio!
So, to summarise the Scorpio posts:
Private Investigations/ Digging Up the Dirt- Mercury in Scorpio
Revenge is Sweeter Than You Ever Were- Mars in Scorpio
Jealousy? Venus in Scorpio
Ghosts of Relationships Past- Venus in Scorpio Rx (and, as an aside, I broke my own rule today and went out to buy Five Foot Nothing some devil horns for $2.50 and ended up with 2 TVs!)
The Power & The Passion- Scorpio
Can You Handle the Truth?- Scorpio at Work
I still have to do something on the Scorpio Boss (which I sort of have some conflicts of interest over, but will get over pretty quickly) and Scorpio under stress for Your Career & the Cosmos.
Its not all about Scorpio though, Mars has recently moved into action stations in Sagittarius…and that makes him Larger than Life (yep, I know it’s an embarrassingly old Backstreet Boys song that is still the best PUMP class abs track like eva dude:)).
What’s Happening Up There?
Aside from the race that stops a nation (the Melbourne Cup) on Tuesday, we have a New Moon in Scorpio this week and Neptune goes direct also later this week. More on that as we get closer.
No posts on Monday- I am off blogs and social networking for 24 hrs to support Autism Awareness. Also, I have signed up for NaNoWriMo again this year- that is Novel writing month. In one month I will write a pretty crappy 50000 word 1st draft. I have half a story, a couple of characters and a working title…so with the assistance of more martinis like this one, I reckon I have the makings of a pretty ordinary airport chick lit possibly semi thriller with a bit of hot stuff thrown in novel.
Off to examine the ironing basket, check out this new big screen & see if I can possibly con hubby into making another of these excellent martinis…maybe with some olives this time…
Until next time
