All Ready for Sunday!

I'm ready for Sunday's program at Shore Pointe Assisted Living's monthly tea, with a couple days to spare.

Book read, movie watched, script written:  

Printed faux boarding passes for residents:  

Purchased treat bags and candy bars:    

Only 100 Grand candy bars would be good enough for the wealthy passengers traveling on the luxury train!  The cute railroad crossing treat bags came from Oriental Trading Company.

Assembled treat bags:  √  

Ordered, sampled and approved the tea to serve on Sunday:     

Engineer's hat and scarf purchased and ready to wear on Sunday:  √  

In actuality, an Orient Express Engineer would have worn a fine uniform and hat, but mine will at least put the residents in the spirit of train travel.  I'll let you know how Sunday's program goes.

This will be my 43rd program at Shore Pointe Assisted Living since I began in October 2014. During that time I've covered a wide variety of subjects and never repeated one. It's been a great learning experience for me, and hopefully for the residents as well.  

September's theme will be The Three R's - Reading, Riting, and Rithmetic!  Perfect for the 'back to school' month in Michigan.

With this post, I've written 1,597 posts - just three away from 1,600.  It hardly seems possible! I've been thinking what I could offer as a giveaway when I write #1,600.  Keep reading to find out!


  1. Your programs sound so amazing. The time and effort you put into every detail is tremendous. I wish I lived closer so I could be a fly on the wall! Not that a fly would dare to venture into these elegant events.

  2. Awesome! I’ve enjoyed finding your blog and reading it ever since!

  3. I love the boarding passes and cute treat bags. I wish I could be there for your presentation. And WOW on the number of posts - I have enjoyed each one!

  4. I am amazed at how much time and work you put into these presentations! I'm glad you enjoy them.
