Month: February 2018

Leo February Visit

February 28th, 2018

Leo visited all day and spread his love to everyone. We started off the day singing hymns with Norma on piano and Judy leading us in song. They did a great job! In the afternoon, when yoga started, I think Leo was too tired to care when we did our cat and cows, but I did catch him doing his “ball pose.” It’s amazing how he lights up the day for the residents and staff.

Residents gathered to listen to the live music of John and Paul. One of them is our resident’s brother. They were terrific! It was great to see everyone having such a good time and singing along to some of their favorite tunes.

New Toy

February 22nd, 2018

We finally received a new toy… a karaoke machine! It was so much fun to play around with, especially during manicures. Lee had all the ladies listening and applauding him! We can’t wait to get more CDs. February may be coming to an end, but Trudi helped us continue to celebrate with “The Day of Love.” She is an inspiration to all the residents, and they just love seeing her and Frank each month.

Yarn Bowls

February 21st, 2018

Residents got a bit messy and made yarn bowls. Piece by piece, they put on strings to create a masterpiece. The hardest part will be waiting three days for them to dry, but it was a lot of fun. Donnie was pretty creative and gave his bowl a face with hair.

Valentine’s Day 2018

February 16th, 2018

Leo, the dog, visited once again and spread some furry love. He played balloon ball in Garden Cove, too! Elon was surprised when he stole the balloon! We also celebrated Ash Wednesday in the morning and Valentine’s Day later in the afternoon. The wonderful treats, tea, and music with Jill made this party so much fun. The room was filled with the LOVE of friends and feelings of beauty within everyone!

Batik Art

February 14th, 2018

Residents learned the ancient Indonesian art of Batiking. They colored shapes and patterns on color-resistant paper. Then the unimaginable happened; they had to crumple them up! Many just looked at me thinking, “Why on earth would I do that?”

Once they finally did it, they painted, blotted, and ironed the paper. We finished it with some lamination. They turned out great! Someday, we will do fabric Batik. It is always fun to learn ways of a different culture.

Polka with Dan

February 12th, 2018

Dan played some wonderful polka music for us at Shoreview Senior Living. I think our favorite song might be the Pennsylvania Polka. Even Pat stood up to do a solo dance!! It was a great time and the room was filled with love. No judgments, just fun!
