May 29-June 5
Hope everyone out there had a good Memorial weekend, and hopefully got to spend some time with family and friends.
The hubby and I spent some time camping with family. It was very cold, however. Definitely had to dress in layers when we went fishing. The fishing wasn’t the greatest, but we had fun anyway. We checked out Amnicon Falls, which was very pretty, if you like waterfalls. We also went to look at a lighthouse on Lake Superior. Wherever we went we had to be careful of the poison ivy. It seems to grow well in that area. Dennis managed to catch a fish that we never heard of before. It got thrown back because we couldn’t figure out what it was. When we got back to the campground, the kids started searching their phones and decided it was a bow fish.
We appreciate the American Legion for coming to Glenhaven on Memorial Day, and thank you to all the veterans out there who served our country, and to those currently serving for your commitment and courage.
We spent some time this week planting flowers that we were given from the seniors at the Community Center. We are using them to fill in some empty spaces where plants have died or are not thriving. I understand that most of them were donated by the seniors who frequented the center over the years. Marge Quale and Connie Warner are greatly appreciated for helping dig them all up.
Church was watched on Youtube again this week, but residents are looking forward to our live services here at Glenhaven, which are starting next week.
We were able to gather together for Bingo this week, after a week of doorway Bingo last week. The new piggy banks are working out great. Several people bring them along to Bingo so they don’t lose track of their quarters.
Since June is Dairy Month, we have dairy treats planned for the month on Fridays. Thursday we did dairy trivia, which seemed to be very popular with the residents. Does anyone out there want to take a guess at how many licks it takes to finish a single ice cream scoop, or how many squirts of milk it takes to fill a milk pail? It was a fun afternoon talking about cows, calves, the chores involved, the price of milk, and a whole gammut of things that lead to some great conversation. Residents did a lot of great reminiscing about the way they milked, how they kept the milk cold, how they transported it, who their milkman was, etc. Even some of those stories about falling in the gutters and cows switching you in the face! You could tell they had a lot of great memories, and all agreed it was a lot of hard work.
Beauty shop was moved to Friday morning this week. Popcorn was also enjoyed by many in the morning.
The afternoon turned out to be a little toasty outside, but we went out for a little while anyway. Our dairy treat was chocolate or strawberry malts-they’re always a hit with the residents. They had to eat them fast or they were soup in a hurry!
We have John Dale’s birthday coming up next week. Trinity Lutheran, St. John’s Catholic, and Christ the King Churches will all be here next week for services.
