Turkey Surprise — pat morss

I was outside Saturday at sunset waiting for our turkeys to fly up into the trees for the night. They were a bit late, so I walked up the driveway and didn’t see them. Coming back down, the first hopped up from behind our neighbor’s fence, and we were equally surprised. Then 2, 3, 4 were on the fence. Apprensive of me, they didn’t drop down to walk across the driveway as usual – they flew one at a time directly from the fence into the trees. By now the other 5 knew something was up, and they flew straight from behind the fence.

Last evening the group faced a different challenge, and caucused in the snow storm discussing the best flight path. They walked back up the driveway, presumably to fly in from the plowed road.

Cape Ann Wellness

Hot off the press, Disney Songs! I had a lot of fun finding new versions of most of these well known tunes. A few are the originals but most are new takes. I wanted to focus the routine on the hands and feet as these are the parts of the body we take the most for granted, until they are painful.

So join us and we’ll have fun singing and dancing to Disney Songs. Here’s a sneak preview of one of my favorite finds, an a cappella version of“I Wanna Be Like You”from the Jungle Book sung by DCappella.

For Restorative Yoga, find some cushions, large books, yoga blocks, blankets, whatever you can use instead of bolsters and blocks. We make it work.
