Happy Monday! It was a wonderful start to our Monday with devotions with Pastor Mari. We sang hymns together including, "In the Garden" and "Jesus Loves Me" and she shared a very nice message with us. Then we all went outside in the garden and enjoyed funny true stories and stretched and flexed. This afternoon, we had a good time playing lots of games of bingo and we learned some fun trivia all about elephants and watched a couple YouTube videos of an elephant that's an artist and a "talking" elephant in South Korea. They were all fascinated by it.
It was a great weekend here in The Willows. We spent time outside in the garden, reminisced, enjoyed funny stories, exercised, sang songs, watched a polka band and dancing video, and played bingo!
Happy Friday! We had a great and busy morning outside in the garden with trivia, singing, and stretches and flexes. It was so nice to be out to get some fresh air and sunshine! This afternoon, we enjoyed a wonderful performance by an acoustic guitar player. He was amazing and everyone really liked it! We spent the rest of the afternoon playing the balloon toss game and watching adorable baby videos. It was a great day!
Happy Thursday! It was a lovely morning spent outside on the patio. We enjoyed some funny children's quotes which all gave us a good laugh. Then we had a fun August quiz and learned a bit more about what happened this month. The morning ended with exercises, beginning with stretches and then a fun beach ball game. Our ice cream social was this afternoon. That is always such a good treat during summer! Then it was Music Safari with Jennifer. We had a great time listening to lots of music, including Elvis Presley, playing instruments, and stretching. It was a great time!
Several residents had a wonderful Wednesday evening with Rachael. They sang songs outside in the shade with the nice breeze and chit chatted and relaxed with hand massages. They also did a few mind joggers and poems. The residents also watched Wild Alaska which they were fascinated by.
This morning we enjoyed an inspirational and informative presentation entitled "The Master Painter". It was about Warner E. Sallman and the art for which he is most famous. Mr. Sallman was a master painter, and painted Jesus Christ, the Master. It was most enjoyed. Next, some residents gathered in the Chapel for Rosary and Communion with Deacon Jim. After lunch we gathered for arts and crafts for very sparkly door art. They are still drying- so they wont be up for a day or so. We then enjoyed Musical Moments. What a wonderful Wednesday!
It was a great Tuesday morning spent with lots of fun trivia and finish the song lyrics. We also got some good stretches in which helped to make us all feel a little better. Lastly, we enjoyed a couple travel videos, including to Italy. This afternoon, we split up into two groups for games. One group played community Scrabble and the other, Jenga! It was a blast! We also had a nice time chatting and singing songs at the end the day.
Happy Monday! It was a wonderful morning spent outside on the patio. We sang a few hymns together and enjoyed some hilarious poems that gave us all a good laugh.
