Community Meals, Deepening Friendships

Read more...In February of this year, residents of Myrtle Terrace decided to start a community meal once a month in their community room.  Together they decide what food they would like to order in.  So far they have had Chinese, Swiss Chalet, pizza, and who knows what they will have next!
It is has been a great opportunity for everyone to get out of their apartments, deepen friendships, and share a meal together.  After a good meal everyone plays a fun, and sometimes competitive, board game!
Future plans include eating on the roof top garden of the apartment building, to enjoy warm summer nights!

Serena was laughing the whole time and couldn’t believe she beat a staff member at bowling. Serena says she can’t wait to go again!

Amalgamation: An Adventure of Discovery

Read more...Its spring and May is around the corner and at my house early May means hunting for Morels. These are wild mushrooms and the places that we go to find them are apparently an age old Jordan secret. The thing about Morels is that they are hard to find, in the beginning, you search and search and pay particular attention to the sandy patches where they love to grow. Then all at once you find one, and then another and suddenly they are everywhere you look. I am not sure what this phenomenon is called but it is like you suddenly are looking at the same area with a different lens and it is one that makes Morels easy to spot.
