Someday’s you just have to make your own Sunshine.  I mean really, this is the best you can do today Mother Nature. It’s noon and it looks like 5pm. Well that’s okay, I’m making My Own Sunshine Today.

When I think of the sun I think of plants, when I think of plants I think of bee’s. So that thought process lead me to this. WOW it is the Bee’s Knees’. You can so taste the honey in it.

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, Always bring your own sunshine.

It doesn’t matter for how long the room has been dark;For a day, or a week, or a year, or for ten thousand years.The moment you bring in a candle; darkness vanishes like it was never there….. Spread Joy, Happiness and Peace…..Enrich Lives…

Between breakfast and lunch I did a 30 minute elliptical workout. I really didn’t have any big workout plans today, I just did what felt good.

Lunch was easy, I have a container of sprouts and they do not stay fresh long, so hummus, sprout, cucumber whole wheat pita it is. To add an extra protein punch I had a hard-boiled egg.

Cocktails are a must for me. I enjoy a cocktail on Saturdays when my husband and I are watching a movie or playing a board game. I think it gives the evening a little spice. So here’s what I whipped up.

Special Saturday Cocktail


  • 2 oz. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
  • 1 oz. Premium Vodka
  • 1/4 oz. Orange Flavored Liqueur


Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lemon zest.

I fell in love with this Pomegranate liqueur last year and have tried it in several recipes, it has a great flavor and I love that it’s not too sweet.  Checkout the Pama website for drink and food recipes. There are a few food recipes I want to try. I will do a post on one in the near future.

To change the subject, I love tuna. Not something I would have said growing up, but I never gave it a chance. As I got older and started to try new things I realized that I loved tuna. So when I found this recipe, I had to try it.

Game Night

Tonight my husband and I have a rematch game to play. I love this board game, it really is fun and challenging. I’m obsessed with this series on AMC. I have an odd obsession with zombie and apocalyptic movies. I’m a huge fan of the Horror, Zombie, and Apocalypse Genre.

zombie apocalypse is a particular scenario of apocalyptic literature. In a zombie apocalypse, a widespread rise of zombies hostile to human life engages in a general assault on civilization.

In some stories, victims of zombies may become zombies themselves if they are bitten by zombies or if a zombie-creating virus travels by air, sexually, or by water; in others, everyone who dies, whatever the cause, becomes one of the undead. In some cases, parasitic organisms can cause zombification by killing their hosts and reanimating their corpses, though some argue that this is not a true zombie. In the later scenario zombies also prey on the living and their bite causes an infection that kills. In either scenario, this causes the outbreak to become an exponentially growing crisis: the spreading “zombie plague” swamps law enforcement organizations, the military as well as health care services leading to the panicked collapse of civil society until only isolated pockets of survivors remain. Basic services such as piped water supplies and electrical power shut down, mainstream mass media cease broadcasting and the national government of affected countries collapses or goes into hiding. The survivors usually begin scavenging for food, weapons and other supplies in a world reduced to a mostly pre-industrial hostile wilderness.

Horror fiction also Horror fantasy is a philosophy of literature, which is intended to, or has the capacity to frighten its readers, inducing feelings of horror and terror. It creates an eerie atmosphere. Horror can be either supernatural or non-supernatural. The genre has ancient origins which were reformulated in the eighteenth century as Gothic horror.

Question of the day: What’s your favorite Movie Genre? Do you make your own Cocktails at home?
