some years ago  i had a show called watermarks
for which i made rather a nice catalogue
yesterday's mail brought a publication with the same title
sent by IAPMA
i'd submitted a couple of images for it
but was surprised to find that my captions had been altered.
the captions should have read 'ecoprint' but were changed to 'eco-dye'
and eucalyptus was altered to 'gum' [clearly the editor does not appreciate my penchant for plant nomenclature]
unfortunately, given that 'eco-dye' has now been trademarked, even mentioning it here [on the blog] leaves me open to litigation. use of the term in conjunction with my work could also suggest that i am using or endorsing a specific product.
i am not.
the filthy hot weather we are enduring here in the driest state on the driest continent clearly wasn't helping my normally sunny mood
i went and played with boats on the dam
because it was too hot to cook food
[or to chew anything]
i made a smoothie
and felt a whole lot better
there's no picture [too yummy to mess about with the camera]
but if you'd like to make one for yourself, here's how
in your whizzBizzer * place
a chopped frozen banana
some frozen grapes
a peach [chopped and minus pit]
a big handful of icecubes
a couple of dollops of greek yoghurt
icecream if you have it
a whopping great spoonful of peanut butter
fill the gaps between the lumpy bits with cold juice
[i used pineapple]
then put the lid on
and process until smooth
pour into chilled glass and consume.
ticks all the nutritional boxes and restores good humour at the same time.
you have a peanut allergy, but let's not go there.
