Brrrrr! What icky weather we’re having for November. The weather man says this should be the temps we see in December. Great!
Steve Szydel started our week off with music on Saturday afternoon. Residents always enjoy his music.
Since we seemed to have been baking so much lately, we decided to change it up a bit on Monday, and so the residents gathered around and made turkeys to hang on their doors or bulletin boards for Thanksgiving. They turned out cute!
Pastor Brad was here on Tuesday morning from Trinity Lutheran in Boyceville. Church was followed by Live to be Healthy exercises.
The Little Acorns paid us a visit on Wednesday morning, and the kids and residents played basketball with balls and bean bags. We cut the visit short a little, as the first Wednesday is also Resident Council. Residents discussed what they would like for Thanksgiving dinner, and had a chance to voice any concerns they might be having. We had a suggestion for a shopping trip, so will work that into the calendar, and also a movie down in the theatre. For Thanksgiving they wanted the traditional meal of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, cranberries, salad, and of course, pumpkin pie. Sounds goooood. Families are reminded that if they want to eat with their family member who is a resident, they must make their reservations by Nov. 16th, and there is a maximum of 5 guests per resident. Cost is $10 per guest.
On Wednesday afternoon, we had a visit from the American Legion Auxiliary, who came and hosted Bingo for the residents, and brought some very nice prizes. We appreciated Darlene, Junalee and Ione for taking time to spend with the residents and for your generous gifts.
Steve returned on Thursday for exercises, and some of residents gathered in the afternoon for a couple of games of dominoes.
Friday was popcorn day, and Father John was here to celebrate Catholic Mass.
