It was a picture perfect Minnesota day! We spent the whole afternoon in the garden (after enjoying some delicious ice cream sundaes with coffee!)
While some enjoyed walking the path and tending the flowers, most of the residents sat and talked about the good old days-- life on the farm, working in the bakery, flying the skies as a flight attendant, chasing little kids around as they grew, and more. We marveled at the sky, savored each gust of breeze that came our way, and just enjoyed our time together in such a beautiful and peaceful setting.
Before dinner time, residents requested a concert be shown by Andre Rieu. One person commented, "What could be better? How could we have spent our time any better than we did today? Wow!"
Happy Tuesday! We had a lot of musical fun today! This morning, we had All Saints come to sing a few hymns and sing-along songs outside! Then in the afternoon, we had our music therapist, Jennifer, and her intern, Claire, come to sing more favorite classic sing-along songs out in the garden! It was such a wonderful time!
