Day 1- recent picture and 15 interesting facts…

1 Interesting Facts… I don’t find myself interesting. I love to read. I can read a book a day if I wanted to. I can speed read at that.
2 I am left handed but cut, play baseball, bowl, throw balls and many more right handed. I can bat either way though… my secret weapon!
3 I love purses.
4 My favorite color is fire engine red.
5 Speaking of the color red…. I want to be a fire fighter or go into paramedic training. It is my secret career…
6 My favorite number is 15. Is that interesting? NO! Growing up in elementary school they always assigned us numbers. I usually was 15 thus it became my favorite number.
7 I am a hopeless romantic and cry in TV shows and movies VERY easily. I cry during reality TV also. HOW EMBARASSIN’!
8 I talk in my sleep… Full on conversations.
9 I like to do creative things… like cut paper and glue them together. I love picture frames!
10 Besides my favorite number… I do not like odd numbers! It is my little OCD moment… I like walking an even number of steps…
11 I love Phad Thai and Mussaman Curry.
12 I want to travel. I crave traveling because I love history… I want to see the world.
13 I am afraid if the dark, drowning, and squirrels.
14 I am deathly afraid of losing my memory like the people at work.
15 it is hard to think of 15 things about myself… I am smart, caring, wild, and crazy… I love checklists and will add things on my list JUST to check it off.

Oh my residents!

Last night one of my residents send me a picture message! Made me laugh! Those silly old people! She sent me a picture of the gingerbread tree she made… SUCH AN EMERGENCY! It was cute she was excited about it. Only bad thing is that I dreamt about ARBOR VILLAGE ALL NIGHT LONG!

Today we made pies in a jar. I used baby food jars instead of canning jars. On the way to work I ate 4 jars of baby food. THAT STUFF IS FILLING!!!!! Anyways, the pies turned out delicious. I took the directions from a blog EVEN though one of my corworkers learned about it at 3:00am on Martha Stewart. I seem to have troubles attaching links so I hope it works… if it didn’t I will leave it in a comment!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… at Arbor Village

Today I started decorating for Christmas at Arbor Village. I have to do it when I have time and today was one of those lucky days where I had a couple hours I could run as fast as I could to get everything done. I didn’t take the residents shopping today so it was a more or less easy day. I tried a new design scheme this year. I like to call it Dollar Tree Chic aka I purchased JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING at Dollar Tree. I think it turned out pretty cute and HEY it is possible to design on a dime. In case the pictures do not load in order… my favorite is the table/wine cabinet with the red and green grass…. there is a picture of BEFORE I finished decorating it and after… ENJOY! Comments welcome!

P.S. I guess i should mention these pictures were taken on my phone AND this is not all the decorating I did today… This is all I had time to take pictures of…
