This afternoon we held our monthly lima bean auction. Everyone starts with 10 lima beans, and they use those to bid on items. The high ticket item was a package of sugar-free vanilla wafers. It went for 8 beans! Everyone left with at least one thing they especially wanted. Always something fun happening at Bickford of Wabash.

The weather is HOT, HOT, HOT here in Wabash today! Everyone is staying in out of the heat and enjoying nice, cold lemonade and water. Can you believe there are actually people out golfing in this heat? We have been making sure they are keeping cool and hydrated as well with cold bottles of water. This afternoon our Bickford Family Members were treated to Dairy Queen Buster Bars to cool them off before heading into the heat to go home for the day. No outdoor activities today but everyone enjoyed indoor exercises followed by a nice, relaxing foot soak. Usually we would also have a visit from the local animal shelter but it is even too hot for the animals to come out. Speaking of animals, did you that Bickford of Wabash is one of the only assisted living homes that allows pets? We love pets so much that we have donated $73 to the shelter to be used towards pet adoptions. Our BFM's pay $1 every Friday to wear jeans to work; this money is then donated to the local animal shelter. This is something we hope to continue and hopefully will be able to sponsor more adoptions; who knows, we may even adopt our own pet!

Sea turtles are the ultimate in hang loose, take it easy critters. All you need to make kiwi fruit sea turtles is two kiwi fruit and a green grape. (Why do I insist on calling them kiwi fruit? Because New Zealanders consider themselves Kiwi and insist that the fruit, which was originally called a Chinese gooseberry, is a kiwi fruit.) See that? You learned something.

Hellooo Spring! The sun is shining today and it is warming our hearts! Front porch is getting a "face lift" and will soon be ready for all to sit outdoors and visit. The grass has been mowed for the first time this year and is such a wonderful smell! We invite you come and sit for a spell, enjoy some homemade lemonade and freshly baked cookies while visiting with your loved one or just watching the golfers tee off for the season.

What a great day! This morning the stylist was here, so we're all looking great. This afternoon was dedicated to mushrooms. We made some, then we learned about them. How did we make mushrooms?

What a great day! This morning the stylist was here, so we're all looking great. This afternoon was dedicated to mushrooms. We made some, then we learned about them. How did we make mushrooms? We put white dot stickers on red plastic bowls, then we hot glued cardboard tube stems into the bowls. Tada! Mushrooms! We displayed some of them in a tray with gravel. Others we put in the windows. Always something fun happening at Bickford of Wabash!
