This month is shorter, and it's only 4 days left for it to finish. Time is flying... So... Are you still in the race (after all... there is still time, right?) or will you only reach the minimum amount next month?...

Sunny Shores @AutumnSnow We have a traditional dish here in the southern US. We eat collard greens (bring in wealth) and black-eyed peas (for good luck) and cornbread (the pantry remains full) and roasted meat - there's debate on which meat to serve. The meat is mostly a...

Although the last day of 2016 is not here yet, you no doubt saw Valentine's Day candy, cookies, cards and more in stores near you. It is funny how quickly the "holidays" are shoved on us. If you celebrate New Year's Eve, you can...

Sunny Shores Valentines - another corporate holiday creation - sometimes it's fun to play along. The US corporations must have 'got it right' as they don't constantly expand the holidays as they do in South Korea. There's friendship day Nov 11 because 5 friends is the...

We are winding down 2016 - just a few more days until we welcome in a new year. When I was young New Year's Eve was a big party time for sure. Lots of them I don't remember much of I will admit...yes, I did my share of drinking....

No doubt you have noticed, Facebook has made some "subtle changes"... One is to "suggest" things you might find interesting. Based on what, I have no idea!! No doubt they got some algorithm going.. Though lately, this algorithm...

Sunny Shores I recently discarded my entire FB account - it was highly invasive and I didn't like the way I was being compartmentalized and diced out to companies for commercial view space. Mention cookies in an email in gmail & see FB ads for gourmet cookies for days....

It took a lifetime, literally, for him to say it and it took another just like him to realize what I've gone through since he was born. My oldest has ADHD and is bipolar, something I didn't know when he was little, but just the...

Sunny Shores Having a great connection with your son like that is fantastic and a reflection on some solid parenting.

I spent a lovely day lounging at our pool with my husband. No, he was not fired from his job. He retired early and so did I. That's why we are in Florida for the winter. I phoned my decorator in Connecticut who had to work....

Sunny Shores Merry Christmas! Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. I've just been a'visitin' - going from house to house of close friends, enjoying homestyle traditional dishes and lots of sweets - I hear you on those 6 pounds - oyie! We've been fortunate here in the...

I found this interesting video about how people are so quick to judge that they don't consider the story behind the 'supposed slight'. Please watch the video and ask if it applies to how we see things sometimes. The video...

Sunny Shores @marguicha instincts of a natural mother - hugs! there's nothing like the adrenaline of those unexplained calls "to talk" with your child. We instantly worry - "what's happened? - how can I help?. What a relief it must be to know that your daughter simply...

Sunny Shores @katsmeow1213 I'll probably eat pizza & ice cream (despite the winter cold) and watch a movie. This was our traditional NYE with my son when he was little. I always felt like he was the best NYE "date" I could have. He's been gone 8 years now. Late night...

Some will ask which essential oils that works for you, tell us, and some others will say, don't do that its dangerous, and the skeptical will say I am not sure it really works. So for all those kind of questions, I do have...
Sunny Shores Thanks for the advice. I like to use essential oils too. Knowing how to use the oil properly for the ailment you wish to treat -- that is where most folks don't know HOW to use them properly to get the desired result. Then they are frustrated or have a side...

I was doing some research on science and came across this shocking statistic. Imagine something that kills 3,287 people per day and injures 20 times or more that number every single day? What do you think it is? Yes, the...

It's been a great and fantastic day today. I woke up super charged and ready to get up and go and get as much done as I could. My plan was to be out of the house by 7:30 AM - that didn't work. I needed to eat and do my Bible...

Sunny Shores Today is laundry day ^_^ I guess that is reason to celebrate - fresh clothes on stuffy winter days. I like having fresh warm laundry - that fresh clean scent when you first bring the clothes home from the laundry or if you're lucky enough to have a washer at...
