I haven't had a whole lot of exciting foods lately. I haven't really even had any impressive grocery store hauls as of late either. So in the way of food it's been pretty boring. That is part of the reason I haven't posted much. Another reason is that I am keeping busy. Normally I would post about what has been keeping me busy but I decided long ago that I would try to keep My Blissful Journey free of politics. Having said that...I will explain...
About a year ago I started asking questions and attending events that our local League of Women Voters put on. The more I participated in things the more I wanted to be a part of just about everything they did. A few months in...I decided to officially join. I absolutely LOVE it! It's probably one of the BEST choices I have ever made. I have become VERY active and I just know that 2017 will continue to be just as interesting to me.
I'm going to continue to try and NOT make THIS blog about that but a while back a few of us started a private blog and I'm thinking about blogging about some stuff there - in a SAFE place. I know a few friends have had issues with online bullying and political bullying and I don't want to open anyone up to that. My Blissful Journey is a positive space. And with the old private blog where I feel like I can open up about that more - it's just that - PRIVATE - and a bully free zone. All like minds welcome, tho! If you are interested let me know!
A few other things that have been keeping me busy is work, Sororitea Sisters, submitting recipes to Global Love Project, my involvement with a local Impacting Poverty Group, and County Fair stuff, PLUS, family stuff! My sister is doing well and about half way thru her 9 months! It looks like she will be having a girl!
I like keeping busy. It actually makes me feel better. That goes back to my high school days, too! The more involved I was the better my grades were. Now that I'm in my upper 30s - the busier I am the more focused I feel.
