Busy Elves and Videos

This is a smorgasbord of fun for various reasons:

The biggest one being, the mother I was, has retired herself and now is coming out to play and take videos and pictures of my adult kids, entertaining themselves. It turns out they will always be kids at heart and I no longer need to be the entertainment center. YAY!

And I have finally made a promised video for Luke and those of you who have asked for exercises to support your back health, since we are all finding ourselves sitting more than usual.

F inding new found treasures 

U nbeknownst to me

N ever losing your sense of wonder!

Found the playful elves in Santa’s workshop

Using natural elements to create Santa’s Reindeers:

Women and tools with men who think they rule

Girls are no fools

And Now a workout video because I promised our friend Luke from 365 that I would get him a back video out to help with back pain. He does beautiful photography so visit him when you get time. It’s a about 20 minutes long.

You better watch out and better not pout, because I’ll know if you are sitting watching it or doing it-:)

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a wonderful weekend and make sure you find some fun in whatever you do. You deserve it!

  3. Cindy, seeing your family working together to make holiday decorations was wonderful and heartwarming! <3 I guess they're all grown up now and Mom can relax a bit! How nice! How well-deserved! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh thanks so much Cheyrl. This truly was the gift of Covid for me or I would have been on automatic piolet and everyone would have been just fine to carry on the same old way.. Thanks so much.,. it is a nice change. You have a great one as well Cheryl! ❀️ Cindy

  4. Peggy loves to fix things. More than I do. πŸ™‚ And she loves working with tools. We are kind of a 50/50 team. If it has to do with electricity, I do it. If it has to do with plumbing, she’s up. Putting things together is her forte but I handle the heavier things like metal shelving. The list goes on… grin. Watched your video. “Stand and sit up straight, Curt!” Have a great weekend, Cindy. –Curt

    1. You are quite the team Curt!!! That’s awesome. I am the point and shoot and Idea person.. lol. Love that! It never ends I know about that! 🀣🀣 You got it! hahahahha I’m happy to hear that. I gotta get off my arse and get moving.. Thanks for the reminder.. I will you too! ❀️ Cindy

  6. Hi Cindy, It looks like your elves had a great time. Cute videos. I don’t want to disappoint you because it’s almost 11 pm, so I don’t dare play the exercise video out loud. Since you can see me sitting through the computer, I’ll come back tomorrow! Have a great night. πŸ™‚

    1. They sure did and it was quite a fun surprise to find them up their actually. You are too cute.. I think you may like this video for your back. It’s just basic moves but I think you are right.. you best wait till tomorrow.. Thanks for visiting.. I’m winding down too,.πŸ€—πŸ™βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ™

      1. My back always needs work. I think everyone who writes needs to exercise their back. The best thing that helped me was acupuncture when it was really bad. Since I quit driving so much, I’ve been much better with just a little exercise. πŸ™‚

      2. Yes, for sure…. I was trying to remember if it was your back or hip,. Accupuncture is really good too for that. I’m glad to here you’re doing better! β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ™

      3. Yes, it was at least 8-9 years ago that it was so bad I could hardly get out of our pool without crawling up the steps. I haven’t had any major pain in my back or hip since that time.

  7. Your family is so fun! Such cuteness,
    β€œI know Mom I’ve been doing this…” πŸ˜‚
    β€œThis makes me nervous…”
    Can’t stop being a mom huh? πŸ˜‚

  9. You have beautiful children. Looks like everyone had a lot of fun.
    Great work out video. Love all the gentle yoga poses. You really do a great job of explaining the anatomy and the benefit. Well done my friend. We can never get too much stretching and your right many of us are sitting more. This was a delightful and beautifully done post. Yea!!! I am going to do some stretching today you have motivated me. I walk and ride my recumbent bike but I have not been stretching. Thanks Cindy. Sending lots of love, joy and peace your way my friend. πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ™Joni

    1. Oh Joni, thanks so much. They really do have fun together. Oh I’m glad you like the movements!!!!! We do need it for sure. I’m so gla it otivated you. It’s hard to get it all in, isn’t it. Thank you for the love nd peace. Received gratefully! Thanks for visiting also, it means a lot! ❀️

      1. Your family is really beautiful. You must feel so grateful. It looked like everyone was having such a blast. Please be careful my friend and stay safe. Love ya Joni πŸ€—πŸ’•β€οΈ
