Best of Luck to You!

I have always wanted to visit Ireland… The green hills… the cottages… the pubs… the music…

so… the closest I can get right now is the little decorations I have for “St. Patrick’s Day”…

May you be blessed always with.

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you.

A sheltering angel ,

So nothing can harm you.

Sometimes I think my life is Mundane…           

Dull and Ordinary…

Wake up…

have coffee or hot tea…

talk/play with cats…

cook Bobby’s breakfast…

watch the TV (NEWS)…

but, the more I think about it…

I’ll take that!…

Irish Fun With My Seniors

I feel “my life” has definitely taken a turn… and it’s all my doing…    k15264122

My job is getting easier all of the time… getting to know all of the adults and their “ways”…

also the other workers… such sweet folk!…

“Routine” may never happen… my days change “a little” every week…

Maybe that keeps me from getting stagnant… boredk1496315 … complacent…

The weather was so much warmer today… around 75 degrees

We walked or pushed most of the seniors outside…k4670503

We have a great picnic shelter area…with about a dozen picnic tablesk8119293 … Also benches… They enjoyed it immensely!… “Us” too! k13829488

There is also an attached deck on the side with a ramp going to it!…

We will eat outsidek3934543 in warmer days… play BINGOk12834083 … and have craft time

We can’t wait… but, for today… just sitting in the warm air was enough… as we talked about whatever came to mind…

We all come up with ideas and activities to do… with our wonderful people…

Today we had Irish Cream” Coffee… and Shortbread Cookies bottlek63197050003010054094_180X180to commemorate March and St. Patrick’s Day

They truly enjoyed that!…

I have found that as you age you crave “Sweets”  k14876324

No cookies were turned down!

I had made Shamrock Trees with them last week for “Good Luck”…sshamrocktree

We will be having an Open House next week…k16188886

Mine will be doing a craft with the seniors and their families…

We will also have door prize drawingsk6183884story time… food…etc. …

It should be fun!

“Chocolate Centerpieces?”

Gift…

We had the best time at our little Valentine’s Luncheon given by the “Y” … It only cost $3.00 … so we immediately said, “That’s for us!”… It was held at a church within 1/2 mile of the “Y” itself…so very handy!… We could hear music as we got near the door to the auditorium… Guitar playing and singing by a volunteer playing just for us…very nice!… Tables decorated with candy and candle centerpieces... Iced tea, coffee and water waiting for us to help ourselves as we found a seat at one of the tables and waited for all to arrive… We had left a few minutes earlier from our swimming exercises … as did other people… As we entered and looked around… one of the coordinators immediately came up and introduced herself… and asked our names…very friendly… putting us at ease… We know no one except for faces we have seen… but, today some names were attached to them… Some of us are newcomers and some old “Y” friends… a great mixture!… The person in charge of activities began to introduce herself and thanked us for coming… proceeding to let us know of upcoming events… A St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon  in March, a bus trip to a casino  and a trip to the IMAX Theater and Museum in downtown Louisville… welcoming any suggestions we had… Prayer was said  and we proceeded to get in line for our lunch of  spaghetti with meat sauce   or marinara, rolls and crisp salad  with a variety of dressings… Served by friendly volunteersDessert was our choice of red velvet cake/cream cheese frosting, yellow/cherry cupcakes and Valentine cookies … All was delicious… Simple and perfect!… I heard no complaints!… Afterwards we looked under our plates for the heart meaning we had won the door prize of the small box of heart-shaped chocolates  that had been part of our centerpiece… We played Valentine Bingo with real “Conversation” Candy Hearts for the game covers/markers… We had several winners and resumed talking to our new-found friends… I believe we all left with a feeling of simple pleasure and enjoyment… A “Sweet” afternoon!
