We really got into the Christmas mode this week.
Monday was National Monkey Day, so we made monkey bread and served it with the residents and tenants supper meal, as it took a while for it to raise and bake. I’ve heard good reviews on it, so it must have been worth the effort. We also made 3 loaves of fruitcake with the recipe we received from the Munkewitz family. We were unable to find the candied cherries in any of the stores, so had to substitute some dried ones. Haven’t tasted it yet, but hopefully it will be good.
The residents did a lot of crafting this week, making hangers with their names on, a couple more gnomes, and gingerbread houses.
We also made Christmas gifts for the birds by making suet for them. Everyone got to get their hands dirty good with that one. The birds will love it!
Church services were enjoyed by many on Tuesday. Once again we would like to acknowledge our local churches for being so attentive to our residents and their needs during this season.
Jen, our beautician, was back on Wednesday, and put in a full day. Many of the residents needed haircuts, as you can imagine. Hopefully everyone stays well so she can continue to come on a weekly basis.
Residents also enjoyed manicures on Thursday.
The Christmas cards are pouring in like crazy. What a great way to make them smile when they hear from their loved ones and friends! Several residents have them hung up on doors, etc., which also helps to Christmas up their rooms.
We have also had some awesome people in our community who have brought in gifts for residents and staff. Thank you all so very much! We will try to get a list together after Christmas with all our contributors.
Here’s wishing all our readers a very “Merry and Blessed Christmas.” Enjoy the time with your families, and as always in this year 2020, stay healthy. Hopefully the New Year will be better than the last one.
