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 is posting activities and ideas for RL members to enjoy at home

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

 

Suggested Activities

 

Members of the Gardening Circle have been making great suggestions for potting up cuttings, sowing seeds, rescuing orchids and maintaining your garden furniture

 

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 !  She live streamed Kids Yoga at Home on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m and for yoga for adults at 5.30pm on Thursday.   Look out for more from Mariana on FB

 

 

Members of the Mosaics Circle are completing projects at home. Karen and Elizabeth sent us pictures of their wall friezes

 

 

Anshu and Sara have taught themselves how to quilt from Youtube and are enjoying creating quilts and wallhangings.  There are unlimited resources on the internet so take some time time to explore. There are art classes, crochet, quilting….anything you have an interest in

 

 

Members of the art circle are still painting and Nazreen has sent in a lovely floral watercolour. The artists are also practising sketching noses

 

 

Karen from the Quilter’s Circle has been busy with fabric and in addition to quilts she has been making soft toys, a quilted book cover and a christmas table runner.

 

 

Members of the mahjongg circles are teaching their families to play this engrossing game. It is a great time filler

 

The Pilates Circle

Phillipa, the Pilates Circle leader, has kindly shared these Pilates exercises. They are easy to do at home!

Keep moving!

 

 

 

The Literary Lunch Circle

The Literary Lunch circle’s next book is The Other Half of Augusta Hope by Joanna Glen

If the circle is unable to meet as planned on 15th April due to the current restrictions, Karen will be organising telephone discussions in pairs.

 

 

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

 

Book circle are also reading A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles ready for their next meeting in April. We hope to be able to meet by then but if not we will discuss remotely.

Anyone else who is reading or has already read the book is welcome to send their comments to Jackie at circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com and she will collate and share

Happy reading!

 

 

RL Challenge set by Jackie

Jackie’s granddaughter has challenged her to learn this dance routine from youtube. Perhaps we could challenge all RL to learn it and then when things get back to normal we can all do it at our first meeting.  Click on the link below to see the dance

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

The Poetry Circle

Carole from the Poetry Circle has selected this poem

 

Success
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

 

The Art Circle

The Art circle are keeping in touch on social media and have been practising drawing eyes at home

NEW CIRCLE SUGGESTION: EMPOWER WOMEN

Renate Wernery has made a wonderful suggestion for a new evening circle which would be called Empower Women

The world and Dubai is full of strong and successful women we could invite to talk to us in various, interesting venues.
Renate is a member of SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL of Gulf-Dubai and is very passionate in encouraging sincerity in friendship and empower the advancement of women everywhere.

She already has some possible speakers lined up including Kim Thompson of RAW COFFEE; Assia, a Dubai citizen, who has single-handed secured training in our best hotels for rape and torture victims from African countries and Sareh Ameri, founder and first president of Soroptimist International of Gulf-Dubai, where we all actively volunteer our talents and energy to help women and girls live their dreams every day by giving them resources to create positive change – for themselves, their families and their communities.

To obtain speakers of this calibre, we would need to ensure sufficient support. If this is something you would be seriously interested in joining, please email Jackie or talk to Renate or Jackie at one of the RL meetings.

Please contact Jackie on circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com if you would be interested in joining this or any of the circles
