It’s time once again for E.M. Kingston’s The Sunday Ramble. Her prompt is based upon a certain topic about which she asks five questions. We are invited to ramble on about that topic however we wish. Today’s topic is “Sunday, Monday, Happy Days.”
1. What is at least one thing that makes you happy today?
It’s still relatively early on Sunday where I am, but it’s a beautiful, sunny day and it’s supposed to reach the mid-seventies, so I’m planning on going for a bicycle ride on my ebike, and that makes me happy.
2. What is one thing that happened last week that made you feel positive and happy?
Let’s see. There was nothing specific about this past week that comes to mind, but I am getting more acclimated to my hearing aids, which I got about three weeks ago, so that makes me happy. No, I’m not happy that I need hearing aids, just that I’m getting used to them.
3. What is your positive personal mantra? (Mantra means “a statement or slogan repeated frequently” via Oxford Dictionary.)
I suppose it’s “whatever floats your boat,” which essentially means, “you do you and I’ll do me.” That is the way I live my life and the way I wish everyone else would.
4. What is the nicest act you secretly did for someone?
The word “secretly” makes this a tough one. Maybe it was when I surprised my wife with a trip to Hawaii for one of our anniversaries about a decade ago.
5. What is one hobby you would like to try?
Right now my only “hobby” is blogging. I might like to try painting, but I don’t think I have the patience or skills (i.e., artistic eye) to make it worthwhile investment of my time and effort.
Bonus Question: What is your go-to song to belt out in the shower?
I hate to disappoint, but I rarely sing in the shower. Instead, I do my best thinking when the hot, steamy water is falling on my body.
