Well, the weather decided to warm back up for a while. Thank goodness for that. It’s much nicer to do outside visits with the sun out. This weather has also been a blessing for the farmers. I see a lot of corn getting chopped and combining of soybeans starting. Nice for them not to have to pull their machinery through the mud. Everything seems a bit early this year.
We started Monday out with in-room exercises. Everyone seemed really tired. Don’t know if it’s the weather or if they were partying over the weekend!
The afternoon was a crossword puzzle in houses C&D. It was kind of a toughy this time. I wonder how many of you readers know the meaning of the word “erudite.” It was a new one to me. Anyway, the residents did a fantastic job, as usual.
Church on TV was watched by several on Tuesday morning, and in the afternoon we went out in the courtyard and repotted several of our houseplants that were getting too big for their pots. It was a beautiful day to be outside, and the residents thoroughly enjoyed being out. Gladys Best wore her gardening shirt which says “You’re Never Too Old To Play In The Dirt”. How fitting was that? She really did manage to get pretty dirty, as did Bev Thompson. Those two ladies got right into the action. Thanks for all your help!
Tuesday was also National Crème de Menthe Day, so we served a crème de menthe cake to our gardeners out in the courtyard, and also to those people in their rooms. It happened to be Bev Fanning’s Birthday, so it also served as birthday cake!
Julie Brunkhorst in Grand Oaks celebrated a birthday this week too. Happy Birthday to both of you lovely ladies!
The beauty shop was up and running on Wednesday, so several ladies had their hair done. Jen is now trying to start catching up on perms.
Bingo was held in the afternoon, first in C household, and then D. Cookies and coffee were enjoyed afterward. Thanks to Bobbie Berends for donating some more quarters for Bingo.
Carol did in-room exercises and manicures on Thursday. We also had care plans that day, and found a couple more plants that needed attention, and took care of those.
Friday was our usual Popcorn Day, and since the weather was a little cool that day, we played a game of shaker box instead of going outside. Chuck is a real pro at shaking the dice. You can tell he’s done it a few times! Probably with the Bus Buds?
We had several outside visitors this week, which is going well. Families are to call and make an appointment with Ashley Bol. Remember to wear your masks, practice social distancing-at least 6 feet apart, and limit your visit to 30 minutes. Window visits and virtual visits are also encouraged.
Enjoy the great weather that’s forecasted for this week, and see you next time. Keep Well!
