President’s Day was celebrated with a presidential trivia contest. We awarded prizes for the top 6 winners. Ruth Huber and Eldin Stevens were our first place winners, Christine Vanish and Bev Thompson were 2nd, and Martha Hjelm and Paula Standaert were 3rd. Great Job, everybody! Puzzle books and candy were their prizes.
To celebrate Mardi Gras, since we were unable to get together, we used necklaces to do a necklace toss game onto a peg for horseshoes. It was a little challenging but everyone got at least one over the peg. We did two rounds with each one in their rooms. Bev Thompson scored the highest with 4.
Since it was “Fat Tuesday”, we also enjoyed ice cream sundaes and grasshoppers for afternoon snack.
Pastor Brad did face time with the members of his congregation on Tuesday morning, and many residents watched church on Youtube. A few also watched Ash Wednesday services on Wednesday afternoon.
In-house beauty shop was held on Wednesday morning, with comb outs in the afternoon.
Since we need to stay in rooms right now, we were unable to do Bingo this week, so we did some Valentine sweethearts questions. How many of our readers know what fruit is known as the “Love Apple”? That one was news to me!
Exercises and Valentine questions continued on Thursday, with coffee and cookies in the afternoon.
Friday, as always, was popcorn day. It’s also clean the aviary and water plants day. In the afternoon we had our wet tee shirt contest. There was a lot of mystery beforehand from staff who couldn’t wait to see what we were going to do. Our version was to take a bunch of tee shirts, get them wet, and they had to make a basket with them in a laundry basket. I certainly got a lot of strange looks when I asked them if they wanted to enter the wet tee shirt contest! They had fun with it. We have a lot of good basketball players in our midst. Anna, Bev, and Paula all managed to get all 10 of the tee shirts into the basket. Other participants were Martha, Marilyn, Olga, and Emma. Prizes will be handed out on Monday, as it went kind of late in the day.
Torg Frank will celebrate her birthday on the 20th.
Our thoughts and prayers go out this week to the family of Orville Wittmer. Orville was a great fisherman, as witnessed by the many pictures of his giant fish. He was also our biggest Bingo fan, and the first to be there to play. He will be missed.
We also remember this week Doris Herdahl, who wasn’t a resident here at the present, but was for many years, and friends to many here at Glenhaven. She was a very soft spoken and kind lady, who was loved by many. Our condolences to her family.
On a brighter note, it sounds like the weather is going to be turning into spring. Not a bit too soon for me!
