Start by sitting on the floor. Are you finding 5 minutes a day to do just that?! Put your arms straight out in front of you, palms up.
Send your fingertips towards the floor, keeping your palms away from you. You may lean forward a bit here.
Gently put some pressure into your hands, imagining that you could put them flat. You will feel quite an intense stretch through your wrists and along the inside of your forearms.
Now we'll go the opposite way.
Put your arms back out in front of you, this time palms down.
|Dragonfly will give a nice tug along the insides of your legs and groin; good abduction (moving apart) of the hip joints too.|
Once again, send your fingertips towards the floor.
|Try to ignore any incoming felines. This is Harper, Dayna's cat :-)|
|Does she have a toy there? Is she trapping a bug? A mousie?|
|Mm-kay, just what ARE you guys doing?|
Both of these wrists stretches can be done with your legs in Butterfly if you prefer. Or do one in Butterfly, one in Dragonfly, aka Straddle.
|Butterfly gives a nice outer rotation through the hip joint.|
Bento Box is next on the Q4 List, so I did some starching and ironing of fabrics on Halloween day. I also loaded the quilt I've named Rosewater, and had some fun. So much for a quick meander and get it done and dusted in an afternoon.
|Avril and I are loving the Aurifil threads on this|
In other news, not one kid came last night. That is a record. It rained and the wind got even worse, so I'm sure that was a factor. Today of course, outside of the wind, is gorgeous and sunny.
