It Can't Be Friday Already

This is a big weekend for us, grandparent wise.  Today is a Grandparents Day Luncheon at the grand's school, then #1 grandson has a track meet at 5:00 which I'm quite sure will end in a family dinner afterward. Tomorrow is Homecoming Day at SIL's school, so football game in the afternoon.  We will have #2 grandson after that because our daughter and SIL will be chaperones at the Homecoming Dance and #1 has a sleepover.  There's a brunch on Sunday with everyone and then a barbecue in the evening.  By Sunday night Ray and I will be exhausted from all that fun.  Hope we have some energy left for some fun of our own.

Saw this picture yesterday and it says how I feel about my recent trip. We have very dear friends and he has been given an expiration date.  It's hard watching someone you love wither away.  Several times I caught myself and my friends with leaking eyes. We also laughed until we cried because you accumulate lots of memories over forty-five years.  Hopefully, Ray and I will get another chance to make some memories with them when we return at the end next month.  Don't want this to be about sadness but I loved the picture and thought it was beautiful.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.  There will be a new story up on Monday.  It's another chapter of The Look of Love story of Erica and Scott Carson.  Monday, my new book "Living the Dream" will be released and if I have time after posting this, I will find a snippet and make a scheduled post for Sunday.

Until then, see you later on Aimless Ramblings.


  1. Hi Sunny, Wow, sounds like a very busy weekend! It also sounds as though it will be great with lots of family time. I hope you enjoy the luncheon today and the weekend with the family. Congrats on the upcoming release. Roll on Monday!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hold on to those cherished memories. I like the pic, very poignant.


  2. Hi Sunnygirl,
    It sounds like you have a very busy but fun weekend. It's so nice that you are so involved with your grand kids and get to share all of those moments. I can't wait for the release of your new book!

  3. I laughed at your title thinking it should be followed by, 'said no teacher ever!' Your weekend does extremely full, I will dedicate my Sunday afternoon nap to you.

    I'm glad you get to visit with your friends, your memories may include tears, but they won't include regrets.

  4. Your weekend sounds very fun and very full! Enjoy.

  5. Happy Grandparent's Day! That's not one that's been on my radar...guess we need to make some calls to the amazing grandparent's in our children's lives today:) So sorry about your friend sunnygirl. That's so hard, and I do hope that you get to make some more fabulous memories with him.

  6. Hope you have a great one and plenty of extra energy:) sorry to hear about your friend.

  7. SG,

    Sounds like a fun but busy weekend.

    So sorry to hear about your friend.


  8. Hi Sunny, hope you have a great weekend. Looking forward to the book

  9. Im so sorry to hear about your friend. Think of all the good times, and smile at the memories.

  10. Busy little bee, aren't you? :) I love the picture! Hope your weekend is great, too!

  11. I am so sorry about your friend. Seeing those you love slowly taken from you is so sad.
    It is nice to make happy memories with your grands and the family.
    Hopefully you will get a chance to make more good memories with your friends.

  12. Lol sounds like my life although they are my kids so I don't get to send them home lol...

    picture is so right..sorry for your friend I understand loosing friends its hard

  13. You have a weekend chock full of opportunities to make wonderfully fun memories with the grands and family! Ray and Sunny time sounds like the perfect way to cap it off. ;-)

    I love the poster - it's one of those poignantly beautiful things that touch the heart. I truly hope you can spend the time you want with your friend later this month. There is nothing good about an expiration date, but it's a bittersweet gift to have the opportunity to say proper farewells. Fill your cup with that warm friendship.

    Just saying "Hugs" sounds a little trite, but sending you big, heartfelt ones anyway.


  14. Thanks everybody. In the interest of time, I am thanking you all at once. Great time today but I am heading off to bed now. Too tired for fun. What a stick in the mud I am.

    I did post a little tease from "Living the Dream". It will be up on Sunday. Hope it spurs you on to purchase the book.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I know I will.

    Hugs to all

    Sunny Girl
