Whew, it’s done. Now I have all those themes in my head, playing over and over again.
The new Nia routine is all about flexibility and strength to music from movies, not musicals, but movies whose soundtracks have become iconic.
If you are new to Nia with Linda, these streaming classes are free. Share with anyone who you feel needs a little movement in their lives during this period of social isolation.
So here is how it works. It will be easier for you if you download the Zoom client for meetings for a desktop or laptop, or the app for phones and tablets.
At my website, niawithlinda.com, you will want to click on the link for the class and time…

Saw this egret hiding in the marsh near Wingaersheek Beach, this egret was practicing social distancing. Happy Easter and stay safe
Church bells ringing from the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church on this beautiful Easter morning. You can very faintly hear Our Lady of Good Voyage from where I was standing (I think it’s Our Lady’s bells). Perhaps I should have tried to record between the two churches. Anyway, a handful of people had gathered outside the UUChurch and it was sweet when everyone clapped at the end. Happy Easter, Happy Passover ❤
I look like going to rob a stage coach. Just going to the supermarket.
Many places of worship rang bells in unison this Easter. Did you hear them? Please share if you recorded. Here’s a brief snippet of how the beautiful carillon bells of Our Lady of Good Voyage parish sounded this morning downtown.
As a follow up to yesterday’s post, here is a sampling of the 2020 hand painted Easter eggs by Betty Allenbrook Wiberg and Brenda Wiberg.
And some spring 2020 forsythia, and an Easter Parade clip, just because.
After last week’s podcast discussing how gross it is that people leave their dog 🐶 poop 💩 bags at the footbridge of Good Harbor Beach McCarthy decided to leave one in front of our house.
So after letting it ferment a few days we decided the Easter Bunny ought to return the favor.
I have to admit to feeling a little bit defeated on this holiday weekend, and I don’t imagine I am alone. But Easter and spring are all about rebirth and rejuvenation so I am trying to keep my focus on that. This juvenile eagle was victorious in snatching his lunch from the river and I felt victory in capturing the moment. We will feel this powerful joy again. Wishing you all the blessings of Easter and the joy of every small victory until we see each other again! Thank you readers and followers for positive messages and shared encouragement.
Last week, we compared March 2019 sales to March 2020 sales, remembering that 2020 sales could not take into consideration the full effect of our current circumstances. (If you missed it, click here.)
This week, we compare the number of properties that were for sale in the MLS last year on April 10, 2019 to those for sale today, April 10, 2020.
Under typical circumstances, our analysis would be specific to homes in one neighborhood: by town/street/price range/water front/water view etc. But because the current “stay home” circumstances effect us all, we painted broad strokes that include all the activity and price ranges in Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester, Essex and Beverly.
If we weren’t all house-bound, the statistics might indicate:
- “Inventory is down 38%! Seller’s market!”.
- “The median ask price on houses is up 10%! The market is appreciating!”
- “Condo days on market are down 11%. They’re selling quickly!”.
But we are still house-bound…
