This is the time of year caregivers are recovered from the holidays and can’t quite get outside due to the weather. Having only the chores to do is very daunting; however we can get a head start on the spring planting. Using paper cups (not the waxed cups) or using the peat moss cups we can begin our gardening inside. Whether it is flowers or vegetables there is nothing like giving them a healthy start in the Northwest.
We can do this together with our friend, as this will be a change from the same old day we are use too; and having started this inside, if it becomes a prize project from for both. Our friend whether they remember all the time put in setting up and planting, will remember the joy spent together doing the work.
Or if that is not for you, how about the scrapbook or picture album we have been putting off. This is a great time to spend together. And look at the memories, which we can pass along to other family members. Adult children away from home would enjoy hearing about and when visiting seeing the album or scrapbook, these are the good memories.
Take the time to just enjoy the good things of life, and then share them with others. When one member of the family is not feeling well, others are many times feeling helpless. This is a good way to share the best of times. Making small albums for each (adult) child will provide a tangible memories of pleasant and good times.
