> a purple kinda day........

I woke up this morning thinking i like to make the raw purple blueberry cake
that i found the recipe here a while ago.
however by the time i was in the kitchen i was hungry for a real breakfast
and nothing else. so i found the purple potatoes in the basket at the corner
of kitchen waiting for me (got them last week at the farmers market) and i
ended up baking them to eat with my egg for brunch. yum!


meanwhile......i noticed there are many purple color items,
plants, flowers around me! i got inspired for a photography
session! grabbed the camera (the one i still dont know how to properly use),
and took some "purple shots" of my purple items (dried hydrangeas, a purple
vase, decorative berries, purple potatoes and more! fun!

but that is not the end of story yet.......
a little later in my search for an inspiring craft project (to possibly do today)
i came to fall in love with the idea of making a fluffy, decorative pumpum like
wool ball in purple that once i saw on etsy.

it was then......that i realizedeverything is happening in purple around me recently!
being who i am....... i started wondering what all that could possibly mean!
so i went online to interpret my recent attraction toward such color and this is what i found:

" Purple embodies the balance of red simulation and blue calm.
This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone
is clearly defined at which point the purple takes on the characteristics
of its undertone. A sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color
often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite
color of adolescent girls.
How the color purple affects us mentally and physically
* Uplifting
* Calming to mind and nerves
* Offers a sense of spirituality
* Encourages creativity

[adopted from here]
another read i found here on the meaning of purple!

i never thought i was a "purple" kind of girl as ive been usually
drawn to things in red! however from now on im going to put
more attention towards things in purple!
after all and apparently purple is my new red!
im thinking.......if...... purple=red+blue....then......
it seems to me that there is a bit balance in purple than red by itself!
(if it makes any sense at all!) and for sure i love to use a bit blue in
my everyday life for peace of mind and harmony of spirit!
