Caregivers, I know it can be really difficult to have your loved one help with tasks, it can make the whole process much longer and tedious but sometimes it can really help YOU too! But the important thing is that it is such a benefit to your loved one to help and feel needed. We all need to feel accomplished in life. We all want to feel needed. The simplest of tasks, like cutting coupons, sorting socks, or even being the taste tester can give your loved one that feeling of belonging. This obviously doesn’t work with everyone, as not everyone with dementia will want to engage with these activities, but I think it is worth a try! I have met several men who had never cleaned in their lives and once they were in the mid stages of dementia they had become obsessed with cleaning! I’ve often heard the wives say “Oh, NOW he cleans!” 😝 you never know!  You may have a huge helper you never knew you could utilize and simultaneously give them purpose! Let me know how it goes!!!

Confidence isn’t walking into a room thinking you’re better than everyone, it’s walking in not having to compare yourself to anyone at all.  #beyou #bestrong #beconfident #iamchallenge #identity #MAXOUT #imworthit #youareenough #umatter #worthit #positivevibes #platinumchic #platinumbossbabe #aarp #greyhairdontcare

Just Quit Already: Day By Day Through Year One Of Retirement.
Day 235, Sat Feb 20: Enid and I went to a free “Companion Planting” gardening seminar at Squak Mountain Nursery. We decided to take a couple of free gardening classes offered by our local water alliance, so I signed us up on Brown Paper Tickets to reserve a couple of spots

The presenter from Seattle Tilth was really good and her info was just right for us. It was about how to plant, say, carrots next to tomatoes for their mutual benefit. Or how to plant certain flowers that repel bad bugs and attract beneficial insects. How it all connects to ladybugs and bees and mason bees.

Came home and I used my little air compressor to fill the tires of two wheelbarrows, then picked up sticks around the yard while Enid worked in the garden. It’s a beautiful day with headline news: the garlic is up!

The garlic gets planted in October or so, overwinters and then is harvested in July. We either hang it up to dry on clotheslines in the studio or just cut off the shoots and store the heads in mesh bags. Like almost everything else you’ve ever stored, it does best in a cool, dry place.
