Four For Friday

I must confess, I am in love with Daylight Saving Time (that's right, the proper word is Saving not Savings, as I just learned this week and now you know the deal, too).  I am thrilled that there is sunshine right now at 6:45 pm on a Thursday evening in Western New York as I …

Sunny Tastes

I must confess, I have always wanted to be a judge in a food competition.  Sadly, no one has ever asked me to do that, but that isn't stopping me. I'm doing it on my own.  I think my favorite thing in the world to eat is pizza, so I decided to conduct a taste …

Thanks for the Memories

I must confess, it's been a looooong time since I purchased a dining room set - thirty years to be exact.  I bought my first set as a young wife and mother while working at a part-time job to save up the cash.  It  was a beautiful oak set that was Amish made and included …

Time to Celebrate!

I must confess, I'm celebrating my Bloggiversary!  This week marks the six month anniversary of my blog, and I've done a little updating since you last visited.  Since beginning this endeavor back in September of 2017, I envisioned my blog as a way to amuse my family and friends with my 'sunny' observations and interesting …

Three For Thursday

I must confess, I’m thoroughly enjoying the ‘number of the day’ themed pieces I’ve been doing lately.  It's so convenient to get two, three, four, five or six items of interest in a post with the days Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  So, dear readers, I submit to you this week, the Three For …

Five More For Friday

I must confess, it’s been incredibly challenging to look on the sunny side of things lately with myself and most of my family being sick for such a long time.  I’m hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel soon by getting past the used tissues, cough drop wrappers, half drunk cups …

Five For Friday

I must confess, I’ve been feeling a ‘little’ ‘amazed’ lately even though it’s still January (see my recent rant on January) and still winter and I’ve been recovering from back to back illnesses the last two weeks.  I’m prepared to slap winter with my flip-flop and tell it to move on already.  But in keeping …

January, I Really Wish I Liked You

I must confess, I really have never been a fan of the month of January.  Of all twelve months, this one in particular stands out as one that I simply cannot wrap my arms around and give a big squeeze.  We need to have a few words… January, You are not dear to me, so …

Waiting Joyfully

I must confess, I get swept up in the holiday season and not always in the best of ways.  My love of autumn, as I've written about previously, gives way to the post Thanksgiving checklists and the busy nature of the Advent/Christmas/New Year's season.  Decorating for Christmas, shopping for presents, baking cookies, planning dinners, and trying to …

All’s Fair in Love and Shopping

I must confess, when I started writing this blog I never would have believed that my love letter to Aldi post would have been the most popular one so far.  I guess people take their grocery shopping seriously.  In all fairness, I am also a huge fan of Wegmans, a local grocery store chain in …

Saturdays Mornings Just Aren’t the Same

I must confess, Saturday mornings are little more quiet around our house.  And tomorrow will be no exception.  Each and every Saturday for as long as I've been married to my husband these mornings have always begun with the 10 a.m. radio program Car Talk on NPR.  The show recently went off the air and …

I Was Going to Write Something Amazing…

I must confess, I was going to write something amazing, but I'm saving that for my next post.  In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a few facts about me, the Sunny Side of Me... as I am just starting this new endeavor and thought we should get acquainted.  I have always been …

Movies, Movies, Movies

I must confess, I watch certain movies over and over again.  Now you would think with all the streaming options, and You Tube, and free network viewing that I would have more than enough movie options to choose from, but I somehow find re-watching a favorite movie both comforting and enjoyable.  There are even times …

The Never Ending Battle

I must confess, my love of food has caused me weight issues over the years.  I seem to lose and regain the same fifteen pounds over and over again.  Most everything I like to eat isn't really good for me and I blame my mother for my insatiable sweet tooth and affinity for baked goods. …
