A few years ago Dr. Tae Yun Kim went to Jeju island, Korea. I got to come with her, as videographer. All was well, except it was extremely hot. Hot and humid, as in, over 100 degrees, and about 80+ humidity. Dr. Kim was cool as a cucumber, in her black, knit St. Johns pantsuit, not even breaking a sweat, while the rest of us were moaning and groaning and sweating like crazy.
Add to that the fact that most Koreans do not like air conditioning, so the rooms and lecture halls that she was giving speeches in, had no A/C, and the fan, if there was one, operated at a speed slower than snails.
Your thoughts create your reality! This is one of Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s signature sayings. She also said that if you focus on the heat, you will feel the heat a lot more. If you focus on being cool, the heat will not get to you.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim also says that “The first step in taking charge of your life is to learn to take charge of your thinking. The difference between a limited you and an unlimited you begins with your attitude and state of mind.” (Seven steps to Inner Power, page 17)
So, in furnace like weather like today – mid 90s – I thought about that a lot. And among other things, ice cream came to mind!
Armed with a recipe for ice cream from Shirley (You can find it here) I got our new blender ready – love this totally insanely great machine! No, they don’t pay me for writing this and they don’t even know I exist, but here is the beauty:
Look at all these helpful buttons! I have used almost all them and this is really great machine!
I put all ingredients into the blender, and had some fun.
I even went outside to get some roses for the ice cream bowls.
From my taste tests during the preparation, I knew I had a winner! It was completely wonderful!
So, when it’s hot out there – do yourself a favor – make this ice cream and chill!
New note to this blog: this is indeed the best ice cream ever! It was just declared such by a 16-year old ice cream afficionado/connoisseur…
