Happy Friday! We spent the morning outside enjoying the gorgeous weather! It was also a good time listening to some favorite songs like "Que Sera Sera" and Frank Sinatra songs like "New York, New York." We also had a nice walk around the garden and enjoyed hearing funny stories about students and teachers. It was great to start the day with exercise and a good laugh! We had a delicious snack, shortcake and berries, in the afternoon and chatted with one another before some games of bingo! There were many winners and what a fun time had by all!
Happy Wednesday! It was such a beautiful morning that we just had to spend it outside in the garden! We all enjoyed watering the flowers (either watching or doing) and dead-heading the geraniums. Nurturing a garden really does feed the soul. One resident, while watering a potted plant, asked me if I would like a shower... then playfully waved the sprinkler head in my direction- Ha! Ha! It was great fun and lead to many fun stories about summer fun! Our afternoon was just as joyful, ice-cream sundaes for social hour delivered by the ice cream truck! Video to be posted soon!
It was a beautiful morning spent in our garden singing beautiful songs! Many thanks to our fabulous volunteers from All Saints Church! Our afternoon was a laid back one, coffee and cookies for Social Hour. We even had a few laughs with the Abbott and Costello bit, "Who's on first". That never gets old!
Happy Monday! It was a wonderful morning spent outside feeling the lovely sunshine and breeze. We enjoyed taking walks around the garden while we admired the beautiful flowers. It was also a great afternoon together having a tasty ice cream bar. That hit the spot and what a good day for it! We went outside for a little bit after that for some more fresh air and sunshine! It was great day!
It was a very nice weekend! We exercised our bodies with stretches and a short walk in the mornings. It was also a lovely Sunday morning singing our hearts out to songs/hymns like "Jesus Loves Me" and "Amazing Grace." We had wonderful afternoons spent together with great conversations and coffee and cookies. There were stories shared about what everyone enjoyed when they were younger. One of the residents mentioned how much she loved ice skating and she was always on the rink! It's wonderful to hear those stories! We also enjoyed more music in the afternoons including beautiful classical concerts and swing music and dancing.
Happy Friday! It was a wonderful morning spent out in the garden before it got even more hot! We enjoyed listening and singing to a few summertime songs like "Summer Wind" and "In the Good Old Summertime," among other songs like "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree." We also had a nice time going on a short walk together! It was a lovely afternoon spent together visiting with one another and having our tasty snack of shortbread and berries. We then watched some fun videos of swing dancing! What a great day!
Hello and happy Wednesday! It was a busy fun day today! Our morning was spent with a few different activities, walking in the garden, morning stretch and flex exercise class, plus some twist dancing to some great 50"s tunes! After lunch we enjoyed some arm chair travel to Italy- Tuscany, the Alfami Coast and Florence. Our favorite of the day was our Ice cream Social at 2pm. I just love our social hours each day and I know all of the residents do too! It's a great time to enjoy a treat and connect with all of the neighbors! Many residents enjoyed the garden in the afternoon also, then a fabulous concert by Barbara Streisand!
Happy Tuesday! It was a lovely morning that started with a sing along of our favorite songs like, "You Are My Sunshine." We also enjoyed one on one time visiting and reminiscing. It was a great time together at our social hour enjoying some fresh baked cookies and coffee this afternoon! We also had a nice time listening to Andre Rieu and other orchestras. Residents loved the beautiful music! It was a wonderful day!
Happy Sunday! We enjoyed watching Ebenezer Worships Church Service first thing in the morning and then residents had the option to watch the Hosanna! Worship Services or join us outside in the garden. It was a lovely morning- lovely blue sky and the perfect temp outside- much cooler than yesterday! After lunch and some individual visits we gathered for some fun. We had a lovely snack of fresh berries and cottage cheese add to that some great conversation, and sunshine it was a recipe for a perfect afternoon.
