We cooked the hamburgers and hotdogs on our grill for the folks who decided to sit out on the patio (extra tables and chairs were set up outside so we wound up with seating for about 35 out there). The chef also prepared barbequed chicken, baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad, chips and ice cream and watermelon for dessert. We were all ready to go at 12:30 and had our folks fed in about 10 minutes time. After checking to see if anyone wanted seconds, we took our burgers and dogs inside to the serving line there so everyone could enjoy true "picnic fare", instead of burgers and dogs off the flat top grill from the kitchen. We had many compliments from folks who had our grilled items that they were very moist and really yummy !
At 8:00 this morning our yard sale started so that involved a lot of set-up yesterday and tear down today after the picnic. All of the proceeds went to the Muscular Dystrophy Assoc.There were also a number of really great prizes that folks could buy raffle tickets for and that money also went to MDA. After Linda and I helped gather up all the leftover yard sale items, we had to get the room ready for a birthday party and dance that is going on tonight from 6 - 9. Needless to say, we are exhausted tonight. Our day ended around 5 p.m. but it felt like we'd been run over by a herd of elephants....as we were walking to our room I'm sure we looked like some of our residents going down the hall.
Sunday and Monday off.....no plans at this point. Stay tuned...
