I dream of creams

Violet cream

Violet creams. Now that I've found these British confections, I can imagine being quite happy in 15th century England noshing on these flower-fragrant exotic tasting chocolates. There are geniuses in all ages!

Box of Violet Creams

I learned that the aromatherapy use of violets is for insomnia and letting got of anger, while cleaning the kidneys and boosting the liver. No wonder I was drawn to these yesterday evening. If you've been following my blog for awhile you know that my father lives with me and has Alzheimer's. These past few days have been wild especially since Dad lost his wallet. He keeps forgetting he lost it, and gets upset anew when he can't find it. I really needed my night off. So I booked myself a massage... ahhhh. But imagine how I felt when I got out and found three voice messages, and my phone instantly ringing because my father was refusing to let his caregiver in the house and telling her to go home. He cannot get dinner by himself, take his meds or get to bed unaided. My sense of well being took a hit as I raced home to attempt to put things to right. And then I found those violet dreams, er I mean creams...

Anna, you are earning your place in heaven, for sure! Your Dad is so lucky to have you on his side. My hope for you is that most of your days off are uninterrupted by such calls. Enjoy your violet creams - you deserve them!

I'm sending you hugs.

Thanks Zoomie and Cookiecrumb. I'm better today, and most times are fine. Sometimes challenges get pretty tough and I just need to say what's up, like this time.

I've had violet gum and violet mints, but never violet creams, they sound good.
