New Projects

First of all, let me say a huge THANK YOU to all my lovely commenters who were so supportive of my last post (and of all my previous whiny posts)! I feel much better today and a large part of that is down to you. It is so great to be reminded occasionally what awesome friends I have!

Now, on to a more pleasant post today. I have recently started two new online projects. The first one is pretty much a solo project, but may prove useful to some of you :D I've started a new recipe blog called Notes From a Wistful Kitchen. It currently has only two (delicious!) recipes on it, but I'll be adding more over time. I LOVE to cook and am even a Certified Catering Specialist and Line Cook, so I think I do a pretty good job, even if I do say so myself, lol! So, I thought I would share some of my very favourite recipes with you.

The second project is a more widely reaching project. Recently I've seen several posts about meet-ups that bloggers who were local to one another have had and I was feeling very envious of the face-to-face support they were able to give and receive. I was chatting (read whining) to The Hubs about this and he suggested I start my own local meet-up group for those in the Southeast Georgia vicinity. Thus was born Southeast Georgia IF Bloggers. So, if you're in or near the Southeast Georgia area and would be interested in meeting up with fellow IF bloggers face-to-face, head on over and join us! So far there are two members: myself (of course :D) and Kym from I'm a Smart One. We'd love to have more members! Right now it looks as though we'll probably try to arrange one meeting per quarter next year (more if enough people join and want to meet up more often) and we'd love to have you if you're near enough!

Okay, so I feel I've offered more than a rant today, lol! Maybe its because Christmas is right around the corner or perhaps I'm just a little light-headed from the flu I feel coming on (again - I had it over Thanksgiving and I can feel it starting again.....btw, did I mention I had a flu shot?!?!), but I more light-hearted than I have since the fall through of our adoption. Maybe the wounds are starting to heal a bit.

Anyway, I hope you're all having a great last few days before Christmas. I'm hoping to leave work early tomorrow and then I won't have to be back until Monday, yay! What's everyone else's schedule looking like this week?

That is cool that your going to have your own meet up group. I wish there was a group closer to me. I am going to check out your food blog ;)

Cool I'll be popping round your recipe blog a few times. I like to cook too! I like easy recipes though ones that don't take to much work lol.

Blessings to you for the new year.

Hugs, and ICLW...

I know this is an older post but I came by and just kept reading.
How awful about the comment. It is so hard to lose weight. At one point I was working out over 15 hours a week for two months and when I went in I had actually gained 15 pounds. My ex-dr was so rude and hateful. He didn't believe I was trying. Thought I was lying. Some people just don't get it.
On the Southeast GA meetup if I move back to GA this year I might ask to join. Although I will be up in ATL I welcome any excuse to head towards Jeykll Island. Love that place. Or Barbara Jean's on St. Simon's for the best crab cakes ever.

Please be sure to let me know you dropped by! I love comments and I'll definitely try to get back around to visit you :D
