Spring Comes to the 3rd floor!

Today Judith and I brought in daffodils and forsythia
 and set them up in small vases on colored cloth. 
We showed images of paintings of those flowers and 
then drew quick outlines to get them started. 
They all dug right in with only a little 
"I can't do this"or 
"I don't know what I am doing"!!  

Barbara got right in to the yellow and couldn't stop. 

Louise was new today and such a pleasure! 
I hope she keeps coming! 

Frances is another one who really enjoys this class. 

I have been away so we haven't had the class 
in over three weeks.
I was worried that we might 
lose some of the "momentum".
Then Peggy asked me when I was going to be away.
So I guess it doesn't matter.    

Ray snuck in at the end of class 
"with no intention of doing anything!
I'm just going to watch."
Well, then look at this! 

They were all very relaxed today and cheerful.
When I walked in Ann was giving some of them manicures. 
At one point, a friend of one of the gals came in 
and played the harmonica.
After everyone had done their painting, 
I brought in Cello, my 5 month old lab puppy
and that just made the day!  

Sorry the images on this blog are so dark. 
Thank god for I Phones. 
I won't even go into my camera issues of late. 


  1. What fun and the paintings are wonderful...I'm sure Cello was a big hit!

  2. You will have stars in your crown for all the wonderful work you do with these patients.
