I’ve been working on new projects at home but this one is for Grandpa! When my grandparents moved to assisted living in 2007 I created this board to help my Grandma recognize family members (with her Alzheimer’s a visual clue was helpful to her memory). In the fall I removed the board in order to update the photos now that we’ve added spouses, great grandkids & everyone is older.
At my house, I have a few random projects going on, like finally growing some of my tulips and daffodil bulbs. Indoors of course.
It started with the tall glasses I bought over the past few months. I added a bunch of small river rocks and then the bulbs:
Once the bulbs are done they’re ready for a cool, dark place for a couple of weeks. Mine are on top of the extra fridge outside. Already the roots are growing down and the bulbs are starting to sprout!
Another unexpected project was getting a new to me bed! Grandpa just moved to a new room with a hospital bed (easier for him to help himself up) and we had to move the family queen bed and headboard. After some discussion I decided to take it and replace my guest room twin bed.
Last night was busy with moving furniture in and out, rearranging bookshelves and I still have a lot of cleaning and organizing to do! I’ll have pictures to share soon!
p.s. If you haven’t seen my new photography project check it out here. Pretty simple: one pic per day, one word to describe the image. Just for funsies.
