This has been an up and down week at the center. We always start with our exercise class and games to keep our bodies and minds sharp. Winters Park delivered our delicious lunch to nourish our bodies and keep well for the afternoon of games.
Tuesday we were to tour and have lunch at the Broadmoor Medical Lodge, but had to postpone it until next month. This turned out to be a plus for us, because Angela came in and fixed homemade Chicken Noodle soup and Angel Food Cake Delight on this rainy gloomy day and it was all delicious. Line Dance was cancelled for the day, our instructor was out-of-town. The computer class met in the afternoon.
Wednesday we did our exercises and played games. Once more Angela fixed our nutritious seasoned chicken salad and Jell-O cake for us on this rainy gloomy day and it was all delicious.
Thursday was balance class and games to get the day started. Janelle arrived in the morning for story time and she related the life and antics of (Jim Nabors) Gomer Pyle. They were so intertwined that Jim was never taken as a serious actor. Only his beautiful voice was taken seriously and he did play on stage in the King and I. We dined on Goulash, salad and turtle cake. A big favorite and not a spoon full left anywhere. Texas Hold’em and bridge was played in the afternoon.
Friday the exercise class got us started and then the book club met and discussed their book of the month. Games were played and we had our second fun night.
Now for next week. We will be closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day. We will be here bright and ready for Tuesday. The balance class will get us started and the practice bridge class filled the game room. Garnet Hill Health and Rehab will bring lunch and our computer class will meet in the afternoon.
Wednesday will get the chair exercisers out and about followed with games of all kinds. Josh Young of Edward Jones will be here to provide lunch and visit with us. The Mah Jongg group will meet in the afternoon.
Thursday will dawn with our balance class and games. Dignity Memorial will be here with lunch and we will learn about our final preparations. This is a subject none of us like to face, but it is something we can’t avoid.
Fridays are relaxed, bring you own lunch and enjoy games and socializing. Remember to live your life and forget your age. Until our next visit I’ll keep the door open.
