Sally here, checking in with a weekly wellbeing
update from the village
,
Last week was a hard one trying to figure it all out
before admitting defeat and letting softness in,
starting with the simple task of putting up these
breezy curtains so I can always see the sky
,
They have been my saving grace really (the curtains)
and I’ve spent every morning watching from under
my covers how they change: blowing hard in the
wind, floating softly in the sunrise, or ever so still on
those frosty starts.
,
I’ve been up early most mornings to catch the light
,
And to say hello to fellow morning lovers
,
Oh to be a swan
,
Do you have a favourite tree? This is mine. I
went to say hello and seek solace in its beauty.
,
This week I’m going to try Shinrin-yoku aka forest
bathing. I got lost in the woods today but will head
back soon to bring you a guide on how to enjoy this
ancient, Japanese practise.
,
Of course, I’ve been in the kitchen a lot. These are
my aunt’s golden slices (oats, cheese, carrots, herbs
and seeds). Head to the Gazelli blog for an update
on that Pickled Magnolia recipe.
,
Our gorgeous friend Meredith once told us
about chocolate meditation. I gave it a go
every day last week just to be safe, hehe!
,
Remember last week’s pink buttercream? I HAD to
use the rest up and make these wild blueberry and
rose buttercream shortbread sandwiches.
,
An exceptionally kind friend - an old regular from
my young days as a barmaid - dropped me off this
amazing selection of books. Which one should I
read first? And can you think of anyone who you
could send a book to, too? That’s a nice thought.
,
That’s it from me this week. Speak to you soon,
