Sunny’s “Be Happy!” Comedy Video ~ Tip #4

“Be Happy!” ~ Tip #4 ~ Make a Favorite Meal

As we wrap up this month long commitment to improving our happiness by adding more laughter into our lives, I hope this video will give you a laugh for the day and help boost your happiness quotient.

With the election coming up next week and all the divisive rhetoric that inundates us all, I think this might just be the week we need joy and laughter in our lives the most! I hope my videos this month have given you a reason to chuckle. I do believe sharing a laugh has a way of bringing us all together, even if for a short time, and reminds us that we do have a lot of things in common. I have seen this in the poler opposite groups of people who have enjoyed my videos and it is encouraging and makes me feel better! Laughter can be a unifier.

And, make sure to join me later this week for another “Be Happy Hour!” and lets celebrate another reason to share a laugh! ~ More info. coming soon ~ stay tuned!

Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy! ~ Sunny

SUNny DAY POST: Diary of An Introvert During the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020

smoke on grayWhen I first heard that we were being asked to practice Social Distancing, by not gathering in large groups or going to parties, to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, it had no effect on me whatsoever. I, being an introvert and mostly working from home anyway, have always practiced keeping my distance socially although I just thought of it as needing my own space. I absolutely avoid parties and people if at all possible. So it was all fine with me, no problem.

And, then when I heard that they were closing all the schools, it still didn’t bother me because my children are grown and on their own. And, when they started closing all of the businesses and asked people to work from home I didn’t think anything of it. Since I already did that it would not impact me. However, what I did not anticipate was that my husband would suddenly find himself at home, our home, the one we share, with me. What is an introvert supposed to do when everyone is staying at home with you?

Well, here are some of my journal entries for a little insight into into how I have been handling the days of captivity.

*Have realized that hubs is going to be spending a lot more time here with me. Have sent him out to buy milk and bread.

*Ordered Chinese food. It’s always enough for three meals.

*Cooked pizzas.

*Realize that I am already eating poorly so I go for a power walk. Everyone in my neighborhood is out walking, the sidewalks are shoulder-to-shoulder. Need more distance ~ thinking of going to the mall.

*I keep seeing my husband in the bathroom mirror. His new home routine is in conflict with my well established routine. Must set us a schedule.

*Husband’s music is beginning to invade my quiet space. I realize that I am grinding my teeth. Must start using my mouth guard during the day.

*Heard about a panic on toilet paper. Maybe I underestimated this virus. Send hubby out to scavenge for some. That should keep him out of the house for at least a few hours. #smartblonde

*Made a mistake and watched the news. Realize that I need a long term plan for being stuck at home together. #thinksunnythink

*Baked a pie. #sunnyssweettooth

*What’s for dinner?

*My Fitbit shows my activity level is down. Gym is closed. Parks and sidewalks are crowded. #sunnythesloth

*My phone shows that my screen time is way up. Am now addicted to social media @itsreallysunny

*Decide to eat healthy. Add lots of fruit, spinach and veggies to the grocery list. And, chocolate bars. And, T.P..

*Son shows up with friend. They have escaped New York. Realize we need more T.P. Send hubby to the store. #dontcomebackwithoutit

*Trying to write. Son’s music is too loud. Wishing for husband’s music again. #allmanbrotherswhereareyou

*Made a list of inspiring books to read, funny movies to watch and motivating podcasts to listen to.

*Watched CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg and FOX news. Feeling down. Have sworn off news.

*Decide to get productive. Make a list: Clean out closet, organize pantry, spring clean the patio.

*Spend the day taking pictures of my dog. #lovemelovemydog

*Daughter came by. Accidentally gave her a hug and she freaked. #sunnyandsad

*What’s for lunch?

*What’s for dinner? #allithinkaboutisfood

*Ate all the chocolate bars. #mustgetmore

*Looking for toilet paper and Clorox wipes on the dark web. #willpaytopdollar

*Forget about T.P., I am out of lip balm! Must venture out alone. #priorities

*Hubby and I wave to each other across the room. Agree to kiss again on June 23rd. #fingerscrossed

*Wishing I smoked.

*What’s for dinner?

*Wondering why I couldn’t be quarantined with my hair colorist?!

*Need a drink. Send hubby to the liquor store. Wondering what is taking him so long. Wish he would hurry back, already!!

A Bea-u-TEA-ful Birthday Celebration!

You’re Invited……… A custom invitation always makes it a special occasion.

Screen Shot 2019-04-12 at 1.51.03 PM

This post is for my fellow tea party lovers out there. As I have mentioned before, I love the whole idea of Afternoon Tea. And, if I can combine it with a visit with a girlfriend then it’s made even more special. I recently got to do just that when I threw an Un-Birthday Tea Party for my girlfriend, Vicki. We have been friends since we were two years old and went to nursery school together all the way through high school graduation! So, can you imagine my disbelief when I realized that I mistakenly wished her a happy birthday ten days after her b’day?! I got the wrong day! This called for a very special make-it-up-to-her party! So, I threw her an Un-Birthday Tea Party

I enjoy any reason to entertain (on and off the stage!) so I had great fun planning all the details of this very special occasion for my very special friend. I hope you enjoy this little gallery of photos I took to document the festivities. And, maybe it will inspire you to celebrate one of your special girlfriends with a beautiful tea party. Just don’t wait until you miss her birthday!!

*This lovely Tea Party would also be a perfect way to celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day!
