After breakfast today, I went outside to sit in the sunshine and soak up some rays with a couple of other residents. Actually, I took a walk circling the facility a couple ot times for exercise and then sat down in a rocking chair to enjoy the sunshine. I turned my face to the sunshine and thought of the old hymn, "Sunshine In My Soul Today" and began to hum it to myself. I realized how very thankful I was for the peace I have felt since being here without the stress of the past few months.
I began to whistle and spoke to one of the ladies, Hallie June, about whistling and we had a little contest of whistling like the whipporwill and the bob white. Then we talked about the poem that goes, "A whistling girl and a crowing hen always come to some bad end. The whistling girl never gets caught, and the crowing hen winds up in the pot." ha.
After awhile, we began talking poetry and how we memorized them when we were in school, and how children don't seem to do that anymore. We also talked about beginning school in the Primer Grade (first half of first grade) and how we learned to read from charts about Baby Ray.
We also sang some songs (very quietly) and talked about how we got our given names. It was a bery pleasant couple of hours that we passed, and I was grateful for the comraderie we shared.
This afternoon, we received a visit from my sunday school teacher, Charlene. She came bearing gifts and we were pleased to get them, but also very pleased for the visit. It was really great.
I have met some lovely people here at Terrace Estates, and I am enjoying getting to know them.
The Home Health nurse is continuing to come twice a week, and checking on me and my progress. I truly appreciate their care.
Well, not a lot more to report today. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. More tomorrow. Love to all of you. Bye for now.
