This past week was pretty hectic, so there are a few iPhone photos today.
Not too long ago I made popsicles using coconut milk, this particular variety of green tea from Harney & Sons, and some strawberries and blueberries. Then I sweetened both the coconut milk and the green tea with a bit of stevia. Some of them didn’t come out as stratified as I would have liked, but that’s because I’d disturb the pop molds every couple of minutes. Depending on the temperature of your freezer, you want to wait anywhere between thirty minutes to an hour between pouring liquids and adding fruits; i.e, don’t poke at it and remove the sticks every fifteen minutes like I did.
It’s been such a busy week so far, but it’s always like that around any sort of holiday. Being swamped with responsibilities can sometimes open up opportunities for exploration and experimentation. It’s still possible to find time to play; making time for it helps release a little steam before returning to the busyness. Sometimes it’s doing yoga, experimenting with a new recipe, or simply going outside.
I have the tendency to pick up a new DIY project, only to drop it a few weeks later and begin another one. They tend to pile up after awhile, and I suddenly find myself lacking in resources whenever I feel the itchiness in my hands to begin yet another new project. I think my impatience stems from a desire to personalize this home, despite the well-loved hand-me-downs and thrifted furnishings.
Bulb-sprouting, seed-planting, line-drying—I think I’m ready for you, spring.
It smells like warm weather.
