My Word Of The Year for 2022 is Happiness. This post is to look at what, if anything, caused me to feel happy during the month of March. March has been a great month with very little stress, and much happiness.
I’ve had many happy hours both on my ebike and my trail bike during March and feel very happy with the way my cycling is going and the way my body is holding up, now that I’m much older than I ever expected to be.
I decided a while ago to buy an ebike rack for my car to transport the bike, but I’ve had trouble deciding on which brand would be best. Finally I made the decision, and it arrived just a few days ago. As the ebike is very heavy, it’s not possible to lift it into the back of my car, as I often did with my road bike. I can now load my bike up and take it where ever it is that I feel like going to ride. There are many bike paths around Bendigo and surrounds waiting to be explored.
Two weeks ago, I called in to say hello to a good friend, who I hadn’t seen since Christmas. Her exciting news, was that she had bought an ebike. I’m very happy to now have an occasional ebike buddy. We were both talking hard and fast about the rides we will do together. I’m now looking forward to our first ride, coming soon. This had me smiling all day and is huge on my happiness register.
The April AtoZ Blogging Challenge is now only one week away. This year will be my eighth year participating, and as with last year, I am participating in this challenge on my other blog Tracking Down The Family For some silly reason I have chosen a theme that requires a huge amount of research. I have been researching and drafting posts since November last year. This is the reason that I have only done two blog posts on this blog since my February Happiness Update. Besides, the amount of work that it generates, I really do enjoy the AtoZ challenge, so I don’t mind the work. In actual fact, planning for this challenge always makes me feel happy.
Out and About
Elvis: We have an exhibition of the Elvis archives from Graceland in Bendigo at the moment. This week went to see it and had a fabulous time. More to come on that soon.
Van Gogh: Lume Melbourne: This was a digitally enhanced exhibition of the art work of Van Gogh. More to come on that also.
These two events were held on consecutive days and were the most crowded events that I’ve attended since covid struck. It did feel quite strange to be surrounded by so many people, but it was held in a covid safe way and I was really aware of staying covid safe. As strange as it felt, it also felt fantastic to be out and about and attending events again.
Now for the really exciting news that causes my happiness register to go off the scale and my heart to sing. I have finally made plans to go to Queensland to see my grandchildren! Can you believe that? Finally, after over two years, I am going to see my son and my three grandsons. Even though covid is still with us, and it looks like the cases will be increasing in the next few months, I’ve decided that I can’t wait any longer. So, I’m very happy to say that in August, I will be in Noosa for one week, visiting my family.
The other happy 😆 news is that on the way to Noosa, I’m making a side trip to Norfolk Island for seven days, for The Australasian Family History Congress. I will be going alone, but will have many friends there to meet up with. This will be my first trip to Norfolk Island, so I’m sure it will register high on the happiness scale.
