This time of the year is the most beautiful time in Daylesford, where the weather is still warm, the leaves are turning beautiful colours, and the delicious winter veges are being planted. In keeping with my promise to myself to stop and look around a little more often, I decided to do something a little different this morning.
I believe that creating healthy daily rituals can really help to keep you on track with your health and happiness long term. This is one of the reasons why I walk at least three time a week, light incense to start my day, and make endless pots of tea throughout the working day. These things allow me to stop for a moment and relax, to think about my well being, and to reduce any stress that I may be feeling (unfortunately stress is inevitable when importing tea from different countries, with language barriers and logistical nightmares a daily challenge).
I have noticed, however, that recently during my walks I tend to be thinking about She-Tea challenges, family challenges and other absorbing processes which means I am very rarely “in the moment”. With this becoming increasingly apparent to me, this morning I decided to take my camera out with me and take some photos of my walk, to make sure that I looked around, appreciated the beautiful lake, and eventually became present again. I have to say, it worked!
Here are some pictures – I hope you enjoy!
I absolutely LOVE Autumn in Daylesford as it’s a time when our town really turns on the charm. It’s a time when many people start to indulge in a few extra pots of tea throughout the day, looking for a warming brew as the temp starts to cool.
It’s also a time where i tend to slow down on the boozy afternoons and pay a little bit more attention to my health, both physical and emotional. I start to monitor my stress levels a little more closely as the Summer chaos subsides, and see where I am lacking.
Here’s a little twist on an iced tea blend that you might like!
Friday 15th March was the day of The World’s Regional Longest Lunch where over 120 guests sat at a single long table in Hepburn Springs and enjoyed the best food, wine, weather and tea that Daylesford has to offer.
We were asked to do something a little different for this lunch and so provided a delicious iced chamomile and mint tisane with lavender cordial that acted as a cleanser between entree and main course. The feedback was fantastic and it was something completely different to anything we’ve done before.
The day was enjoyed by all and the proceeds of the event went towards the Daylesford Neighbourhood House to support continued learning within the community.
An amazing job was done by organiser Bettina at Special Touch Events, Christian from Egos Cakes & Catering for the main meal, Darmagi for the entree (located on Main Road, Hepburn), the amazing dessert by David from The Argus (Hepburn), photography by Best of Daylesford, cold drip coffee by Vigen at Buffalo Girls, wines by local growers including Passing Clouds, Michelle from The Vintage Baker and many, many more contributors.
A wonderful day created by truly wonderful people!
