Ranches Ladies Newsletter

RL Tuesday Social Morning

Dear Ranches Ladies

In the light of the government directives and the current health emergency RL will not be meeting as usual and our Circles and coffee mornings are temporarily suspended.

We understand that many members are worried and may feel isolated at home. Please email  ranches.ladies@gmail.com if you feel lonely or know of someone who is struggling and put them onto our FB page so they can keep in contact.

RL Circles News

Since there will not be any official RL activities for a while, and people may find themselves at a loose end, RL thinks it might be a good idea if each circle suggests something that people can do at home to keep busy. For example the Book Circle (see below) has provided a list of the best books they’ve read recently.
Yoga and Pilates can be done at home and Mariana is posting video exercises on WhatsApp. Contact her on the email below to join her WhatsApp group.  Let Jackie know your thoughts or ideas to keep us all positive and active! And continuing with regular posts on facebook will help us all to feel connected.

Please contact Jackie on circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com with your pictures, suggestions and activities


This Month’s Circles


The Yoga Circle

Keep Fit with Yoga!
Mariana’s yoga group usually meets every Monday and Thursday but while classes are on hold, you can still carry on keeping fit !  The first of her videos has been shot.  If you would like to receive them on a daily basis, email circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com to be added to the group.

The Book Circle

Time to Read!
With so many activities postponed or cancelled, you may be finding yourself with time on your hands so why not pick up a good book?  RL Book Circle usually meets once a month to discuss a book we have all read.  After the discussion, we rate the book on a scale of one to five.  If you are looking for something to read, here are some of the titles we have enjoyed most over the last year or so:
The Muse by Jessie Burton
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The Colour by Rose Tremain
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
Happy reading!


The Poetry Circle

Carole from the Poetry Circle has selected this poem


Poet: Clarence Thomas Urmy

Not what we have, but what we use;
Not what we see, but what we choose –
These are the things that mar or bless
The sum of human happiness.

The things near by, not things afar,
Not what we seem, but what we are –
These are the things that make or break,
That give the heart its joy or ache.

Not what seems fair, but what is true;
Not what we dream, but good we do –
These are the things that shine like gems,
Like stars in fortune’s diadems.

Not as we take, but as we give,
Not as we pray, but as we live –
These are the things that make for peace,
Both now and after Time shall cease
