Spring Has Sprung at the Manor

Yep, that would be my mom. Did I tell you she absolutely loves where she is living? Mama loves the staff, she loves her friends, and she loves all the activities. She really enjoys doing things for people and she enjoys bringing a smile to their faces. I am told she started her day off today by wearing these sunglasses my nephew gave her - throughout the building. Gotta love it!

Everywhere you look there are signs of spring and of Easter. Above, Mama is blowing bubbles from an Easter carrot at the front desk. All the countertop toys belong to other lady - lol!
The nice lady in the middle is the activities director. She's a hoot! Such a fun lady. She always decorates the Manor very brightly and makes it a fun place to be. Mama loves her.
Mom and I walked the halls and checked out various spring and holiday door decor. These were my favorites.
I just happened to catch mom doing her arobics class. I hadn't actually seen that before. It was pretty cool how they all stayed in time. They looked so graceful.
I walked around the grounds a bit and took a couple photos there also.
The Manor is beautiful this time of year - both inside and outside. Flowers are starting to bloom, the grass is green, the water in the ponds are up, and the geese are out in full force :O). Tomorrow I will post another set of photos to show you some of the lake area.

Hi Alice. This is my official response to your recent note. Aren't you impressed with me that it is only 100 years late?? LOL

Send me an email and let me know the next day that you have some time to "come out and play" with cameras in hand.
