Green Acres Manor News - March 2010
Hello to all,
Well, Spring is in the air, as March 20 signaled in the official beginning of this great season. It truly feels like Spring as flowers and trees are blooming, the sun is shining, and we have more daylight hours into the evening. We have all been getting outside more this past couple of weeks as the weather has been pleasantly warm and comfortable. This time of year also signals the time of lots of extra work in our gardens and property. Plans are in place for our vegetable garden, the vineyard has already been pruned, and our landscaping crew has already been hard at work. We are looking at increasing our production of certain vegetables this year. Each year seems to bring an additional learning curve to what works well in certain areas of our property, and makes these decisions easier to make.
We celebrated a couple of birthdays this past month. Vern Stokes celebrated a milestone of turning 90 years young, with a grand smile on his face and the twinkle in his eye that endears him to all. We also had two employees celebrate birthdays. Debbie celebrated hers on March 1 and Marilyn on March 7. Please help me in congratulating them on another great year of life experience! April has three more employee birthdays in store including April on the 2nd, Josy on the 19th, and Lizette on the 27th. Don't forget to wish them well on their special days.
Easter seems to be coming so early this year as it falls on April 4th. Please let us know if your family has any special plans to take out your loved one that weekend. We will have a traditional Easter meal including a fresh baked ham and all the fixings. Let us know if you would like to join us.
Over the last two months we have had an available room where we haven't been able to find that right person to come in and join our family. I believe this month we will have that certain someone join us, and possibly even a second new resident bringing our total to 14, our maximum. We'll see how it all turns out, but I am confident that we will be welcoming someone new. This is always exciting for us as we are able to get to know a new family and extend our care to someone who needs our special brand of love, devotion, care and attention.
That about covers the Green Acres activities for the month of March and what we are looking forward to in April. Take care for now and we'll see you all very soon.
