Not. Gonna. Happen.
At least on my watch.
That is me trying to relax. If I am not in the car traveling somewhere, then I am in a meeting, or putting out some political fire I honestly have nothing to do with.
Life is never boring.
Never, ever, ever.
I guess this is what I always wanted, right?
To be super involved and in the thick of it.
Well - Be careful what you wish for. The grass is not always greener on the other side.
I have totally gotten away from my writing. For that, I completely apologize. Maybe the formatted thing just isn't going to work for me. It feels too much like a deadline when I have to write something. Perhaps my silly little blog will continue to be exactly what it has been for the past 6 years - just a little place to drop my thoughts off, catch up with my friends from all over the world, and give the rest of you a "nosy" fix on what my life is really like.
So I mentioned I was busy, right? Oh yeah. Crazy busy. Mixed in with moments of good.
We did the typical beachy things.
I took time to sit under an umbrella with boat drinks, while the girls played.
My niece is now a First Degree Black Belt.
Yeah.. we are a bunch of over achievers.
I went with my friend, Stephanie, to check out the NEW Tubman Museum. It is really lovely. I'm proud of my friends and old co-workers.
I finally went blueberry picking on my SG's farm. They are organic!!!
You may know this already, but I am a bit of a cheese snob.
AND - I've found my people.
We had a first gathering of cheese snobs! It was sooo much fun!
Finally - some Southern Heritage history that is positive.
We have a column that needs to be restored.
We're doing it - thanks to a grant from the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Speaking of Southern...
I was asked to be in a project for a journalism camp. They asked us what it meant to be Southern.
Of course, they pulled my quote that dealt with the question - What are some of the negative stereotypes of being Southern. *smh* AND - my quotes were chopped up and put together.
Regardless - here it is:
I hope you are having a great summer!
