Day 21

On Your Plate

My mother offered to come over and cook dinner! 
We had pork loin & onions, green beans, mashed potato, apple sauce, & croissants with carrot cake for dessert. YUM!

I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of the meal on my plate.... so I took a picture of the plate, leftovers, and dessert.

The Weather

This was taken right outside my front door. The sun was just starting to come up and the clouds were moving fast. It was a chilly day but overall a good one.

What Am I Reading? #28VDayPhotoChallenge

Day 19

What Are You Reading?

Validation Techniques for Dementia Care

is the book I'm currently reading to provide better care for the residents at the nursing home that I work at.
Validation Technique is a way to confirm a resident's thoughts and feelings as well as redirecting them.

If a resident says "I want to go home"
it is not ok to say "you can't go home." 
The correct way to respond might be to ask them about their home. "what was home like?"
They might respond with something about their family, their kids.
Ask them a question about their kids. "What do your kids do for work?"
They respond.
"what did you do for work?"

See how we started at "I want to go home" and are now talking about work?

Validation Technique is a more subtle way to redirect without further agitating the residents.

Or so I'm learning.

Day 18

Your Art

I used to love drawing. Now, I don't have much time for it.
Showing off my previous drawings and art never gets old though.

Jessica Rabbit

Then I moved on to pumpkin carvings.
Brian - Family Guy
What's sad is I never got a picture of the best pumpkin carving I have ever carved. It was a fairy silhouette that took over 4 hours to carve. It looked stunning. Perhaps I'll attempt it again someday. 

Then I got a hold of Adobe Photoshop and I started dabbling in Vector arts. I'm not too good but this is the best thing that I've made.
Made this rose from scratch

Now, I can fix photos, and do all sorts of crazy things with photo shop!
There are only 2 tattoos here that are real.

I made my brother as a zombie!

I even won a contest that turned my distorted zombie pictures into a book cover!

All My Friends Are Great! #28VDayPhotoChallenge

Day 17

A Great Friend

What makes you turn into a great friend? 

A great friend is loyal, trustworthy, and true.
They know the difference between venting and drama.
No matter how mad you get at each other, they would never tell things that were told to them in confidence.
A great friend is considerate and kind.
Someone you can have fun with and let your guard down around.

The gang at Chelsea's Birthday Bash!

Hawaii Theme!

 I'm so thankful for my friends. They are all great! Hence why I couldn't choose.
