Joy To The World off-key


 I don't know when I've had a more enjoyable evening than I did last night.

Only 5 of us showed up for the caroling.... guess the cold weather kept the rest in their apartments.

So, we 5, along with our Director/Manager (Christel) and our Life Enrichment Director (Sarah), just settled in on the couches and started singing. It was quite obvious right from the start that we'd never win "The Voice". We were so off-key!! But, we really had fun and it put us in the Christmas spirit.

We munched on cookies and drank mugs of steaming hot chocolate.

 I took mine plain. The rest topped theirs off with marshmallows and whipped cream. I didn't want to end up with a white mustache.😀

And, laugh!! I knew our Directors were sweet, kind and all that. But, what I didn't know was how much fun they were. I don't know when I've laughed so much. Christel get's giddy and silly when she gets tired, according to Sarah who has known her for years.  Christel had had a very long, hard day yesterday and she was TIRED. On the fun Christmas songs like "Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer" she'd add silly stuff into it and we would just crack up.

I came home, crawled into bed and just lay there thinking about how much fun it all was. I couldn't go to sleep!!

I feel so blessed to be living in a place like this (55+ apartment complex) and to have our new staff who is so caring and fun-loving. Joining with Thankful Thursday

  1. Fabulous! Wish I could have been there with you - my voice is no longer great but I would have loved to join in! A shame more didn't show up - they missed a great time.

  3. What fun! A singalong boosts the spirits no matter who sings but your director sounds like a gem!

  4. Age and lack of talent have morphed me into a sly lip syncer. Seems like you had a really fun time and you make such complexes sound appealing.

  10. I wish so much that my mother was still living. She was always going and making it her business to laugh and have a wonderful time whenever possible. She lived to be 96 and still drove in her late 80's, and so did my grandmother. Mama would have enjoyed being with your group so much and I think you two would have been good buddies. That is meant to be a high compliment to both of you!
    I miss her so much. I'm sure you miss yours, too. Don't we all feel kind of lost without them!
    Keep laughing and aging backwards!
