Yes, Good stuff happening everyday! This week has been another busy but very good time together! We have been enjoying our beautiful fall door decorations that we each created last week and now are displayed on the apartment doors of all those who joined us in this project! We have played word games to keep our minds active and enjoyed a few rounds of BUNKO with our new extra large dice. Jim won three rounds and the rest of us only won a total of one each, but a good time was had by all. We played host to a couple of awesome young ladies from the Happy Up Store here in Edwardsville.
They introduced us to 5 new games that we have never seen before and we all enjoyed the time together. The Residents voted on which games that they liked best and we purchased 3 for them to have here as their own to use here in our Community. We exercised using Chair Yoga, Nia Dance and our usual Senior Services Plus exercise class. We spent time outdoors in our courtyard playing bean bag toss and a couple games of washers. Several stayed longer to just enjoy the fresh air, visit with friends and enjoy a glass of lemonade.
Book club this week included a short story full of humor and another longer story about 2 young boys and the influence that a special elderly mentor had made in their life. We will enjoy hand massages today followed by a trip to Culver’s for frozen custard! This is extra special to one of our Residents who has a Grandson who works there! Good Stuff happening everyday!
