Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Japanese living in Sydney, Australia, and my hope is for bringing peace of mind in my life. Terrible at portraying myself (bad on selfies), but fair to be expressive with drawings and photography. Appreciate Yoga and joging / walking because they set me neutral. Another a bit of passion I recently set forth, is to do readings and healing using crystals and minerals, most of which have came at me little by little over time. A new category for quartz was added into my blog menu along with. It will be great if you enjoy. :-)
As you know, Rhubarb is very sour vegetables when consume as is, and it is suitable for jam and sauce.
The recipe I followed used Blueberries putting together with diced Rhubarb.This way the filling became milder in sourness, it actually adds nice and pleasant sweetness. The recipe also used sour cream for the crust, taking over the role of which the eggs and water play. This has produced a good shortcrust flavor and texture. I baked this twice this summer eventually, and particularly this second bake is made my favorite (in photos below). I am satisfied both with the fillings and the crust which finished better than my first bake. Rhubarb and Blueberry fillings was made nice ruby sauce and it flowed when you sliced.
It was hard to control my craving to it serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but my friends couple enjoyed with the scoops! 😋
Festive period 2019 was something very unusual for me, because of the months-long bush fires that flamed up in Australia, particularly east coast and south area over the four states.
All graphics and updates cast by the media were of heartbreaking, and the blaze did not set back on New Years Eve and New Years Day.
Temperature on Saturday and Sunday last week soared to record-breaking high, which coincidentally some source was saying, apart from the subject of bush fires, that the earth took the closest position to the sun in her orbit.
This piece below was drawn while watching the circumstances, with the inspiration driven by my sincere wish of rainfalls and / or something good of element of aqua, embrace all of the burned areas and heal them. Yep, the motif is completely unrelated to the subject, but this is how I could send my love over.
This grid of rocks was placed in late October and left it unmoved until now.
I like rocks and minerals to collect and I like playing with them too. I like making spontaneous grid with the stones picked up randomly.
This layout is one of them in which there are a couple of ‘unusuals’.
Unusual 1. I have some rose quartz but I usually do not my first choice in playing.
However, for some reasons, I had got my head filled fully in rose quarts pink and gathered all rose quartz I have to place on the table.
I probably needed some graceful energy and rose quartz must be the best rocks holding those soft and graceful energy (in my opinion).
Unusual 2. I generally keep the stone layouts for several days then deform them, but this one left my regular ‘rock spot’ in my lounge space over a month.
What impression do you have at them?
Do they click some sense in you?
Well, I feel the time to deform comes, I will finally start making a fresh layout with fresh mind tomorrow morning.
