Family Time...

I just love this photo of an unknown (to me) little girl. I have posted this before and unfortunately know not where I came across it so no credit is given...however, thank you. Somehow I relate so much to this little girl sitting patiently. I always wonder what she is thinking...

For me today is about the last minute cleaning and grocery shopping for you see company is coming. The fresh flowers are set out in the guest quarters. All appears ready for a nice relaxed visit. I will be welcoming my sisters as we have a reunion of sorts this weekend.


We may take a walk along the NID canal and do some laughing and chatting...



We may stroll through the back yard and do some remembering. Maybe we will sit by the pond and blow some bubbles and tell more stories.

We will definitly do some eating and reminiscing.

So if I am quiet on the blogging scene I shall be the noisy one in sister family time. I have always been the noisy one who gets shushed a lot.

I look forward to seeing my sisters and getting to visit. Let us hope "family dynamics" have taken a far away cruise and won't be here this week. As I age I find time with family is so very precious. Let nothing spoil this time together. Lets laugh and cry and share our love together.

May you each have a wonderful weekend...

Please be safe in the extreme heat some of you are experiencing. Keep hydrating...

Now I am off to finish up the last details...

  2. Hope you have beautiful weather for outdoor activities. It's hot here all year round so if I waited for cooler weather in order to crochet I might never get anything done. :) Enjoy sister time. Best wishes, Tammy

  3. Sherry, she is the cutest little girl. Somehow she reminds me of my sister but then she's not so patient but posed for an angelic photo once. Have a super blessed time and we, your blog sisters, will try not to get too far ahead! LOL

  12. I hope you have a wonderful weekend of family time. You are so right about setting aside family dynamics, especially as we all grow up and older.
    And I do love the bit about bubbles - I think perhaps today I shall buy me some as the rain has stopped and there is sunshine...
