I'M SENDING YOU a minor Manor grab bag of photos today, beginning with a detail from the garden beds outside the front doors. The plan was to have marigolds in yellows and oranges, but God interfered and here and there, one can see a Johnny-jump-up, volunteering from last Spring's planting. I love that kind of surprise. Thank you, Father-Mother God!
Because we're lucky enough to be in the independent living area of the Manor, we've really not much idea of what goes on over in the Health Center and were surprised to see this scene on our way to our car in the parking lot. It must have been Wheelchair Laundry Day.
Friday afternoons wine and cheese are served. We like it best during the summer when we can sit on the patio. Jack Frost plays his harmonica, the musical among us sing, "D" sometimes can't keep from dancing; the music in her soul cries to express itself and she does an inspirational job.
Speaking of the Frosts, this is Jack and Joanne's dog, Lola, our only resident dog. She guards their quarters fiercely (at least the bark sounds powerful from the other side of the door) and gets to go for walks throughout the day, garnering treats along the way.
Dulcinea is the only bird within our walls. When Mr. Bob first met her, she nipped him, but Mama Nancy convinced us it was just a kiss. In her previous life, Nancy taught Special Needs kids and ESL.
The last of today's offerings...... treats.....available every day in our tea room. Temptation lurks and I try to look the other way, but sometimes give in to the delicacies. Alongside this case are coffee, tea, ice water and juice as well as a bowl of fruit.
Aren't we the lucky ones?
