Happy birthday, Keith.

We ran another relaxation session for our wonderful residents. This time we added some nice lighting with some tea lights and fairy lights to create a nice dim light atmosphere.

The residents really enjoyed the session, and we feel it brought some variety to the weekly group sessions.

We made some bird feeders to help feed the birds in this freezing weather we have been having.
