Purple Ice Pop Heaven
Daily Draw May 21st, 2012
Yesterday I ordered a book for $11 on making homemade ice pops or popsicles. I’ve tried doing this before over 30 years ago and wasn’t too keen on them because I used frozen orange juice. Today they have all kinds of recipes using fresh fruit combinations and yogurt or infusions of tea and herbs that sound really interesting. I thought this would be a good way of heading off my ice cream cravings and using the fresh blackberries that will come up in the summer in my garden. I now have a small food processor that makes it much easier to chop and mix things.
Well, it’s a plan anyway.
Today’s card goes well with the cover of this book.
39 – PURPLE – Develop Mental Clarity
This colour is supposed to clear mental complexes, negativity, inflammation and aids with rheumatism, pain and the healing of bones. Very good for today as I am dealing with a flare-up of inflammation. It seems to be simmering down, but throwing a bit of Purple at it sounds yummy.
To go with this I randomly chose a snippet from Braided Creek by Ted Kooser and Jim Harrison. This has quickly become a favourite poetry book with us.
Nothing to do.
Nowhere to go.
The moth just drowned
in the whiskey glass.
This is heaven.
Perfect for a purple holiday Monday and healing rest.
