This semiprecious stone is part of the quartz family. Ancient Egypt, classical Greece and Rome adorned themselves and their works with amethyst. Spiritual properties of amethyst include awareness, clarity, calm and intuition. It's commonly referred to as a stone of the mind.
1-2oz. Grand Marnier (Spiced Rum would taste yummy too)
1 cup raspberries
Any fruit you fancy will do the trick. Juice the wedges of citrus and toss in your wine. Add sugar, liquor, and any other diced fruit. Chill overnight and serve. Some recipes call for fizz like club soda or ginger ale when ready to serve.
I grabbed the largest bottle of pinot gris and dumped out a cup (for my homies), then added all the goodness. Fizz didn't quite make the cut.
After skiing around Trillium Lake (despite blisters from my boots), I got the bug for more snow. We headed to Little John. This sweet location has an open log cabin to enjoy a crackling fire after hours of sledding. We had a blast!
Snow and freezing rain was headed to Portland that night. As we headed out of the Gorge (with ample time before the storm), a jack-knifed semi truck stopped traffic for 4 hours! What usually takes us one hour to commute, we did in six! Good thing we dressed warm and over packed food & blankets. It was a forced break we had to surrender to. Driving on a blanket of snow and ice as the Gorge winds whipped our car like a ping-pong ball? Not so much.
I made a list of what I love on Etsy. It took forever! Really. Here is the link.Anyone can create a treasury and it may get noticed (from a bazillion others) and possibly land the front page for a tic. Nonetheless, these items I love.
