2022: Month of Celebration

Quincy_0-1668436194135.jpeg

 

Hi everyone!

 

It’s that time of year again where we hold our 6th annual Month of Celebration here on the Community Center.

 

For the newcomers to the CC, we’ve been running this festival every year since 2017 – it works a little bit like an advent calendar. For each day of December, a different community member posts a new topic about something positive or inspirational. We cover both hosting and non-hosting related topics: from nice stories, personal experiences, helpful tips, milestones, traditions, fun facts, and anything else that brings a smile to someone's face! Every year, we’ve shared some great conversations, laughs, and celebrated our wonderful community.

 

Last year, we had some wonderful topics, including Robin4's with Life is full of coincidences and a festive treat from Huma0 with Christmas: What will you be cooking? The possibilities of writing topics are endless. You can take a look at last years' here, for some inspiration.

If you would like to get involved, please reply to this thread and let us know which date (or dates) you would like to post a topic. I hope you will all enjoy this dose of positivity, whether you get involved or just read and share your thoughts on others' posts. 😄

 

Enjoy!

I am keen! i love to write stories, and include photos of course. We are packing up and moving 3000km to our farm in early December, that could be topic: how to survive moving house, with kids + pets, haha. Or I have other ideas, so i could take anywhere from the 20th.

@Gillian166 look foreward to the photos, safe travels moving and as @Cathie19 said watch the potholes some are like mine holes with the ground subsiding. Take care.

@Laurelle3  oh this is going to be a huge problem in december, with all the driving ppl do. my daughter and her partner are driving from SA to sydney for xmas, if it's not potholes i'll bet there's so much road works filling those holes , she'll need 2 days to do, better tell her to book a motel now.

@Quincy  we've done it before, it's not quite the romantic instagram road trip you might be imagining. We are doing it in 2 days, to minimise the time spent in accomm with the animals. 

 

oh and my bad, it's 2200km, not 3k. sorry. I did some rough maths. Anyone who has ever travelled the Hay Plains will know it feels like a million miles.

Been there, done that @Gillian166  when we moved from Adelaide to Darwin many years ago! That was 3000a!

 

We crossed the Hay plains last month and that was before the latest water inundation. The roads will have you travelling slower with the pothole damage so take care.

@Cathie19 

I  have looked hard and can't see you name on the calendar. I am sure you can give another Auzzie story from the Top End.

The same goes for @Robin4 who could give us a view of his garden or view from the summit. You will add more of an Australian influence from Downunder.

Being “on the road” is making it a bit difficult to respond to stuff, as time and signal can be limited.

@Cathie19  thanks for the heads up. Hubby just did the journey from Adl back to Qld, and managed to hit a roo near Moree and damage the car (first time that's happened in over 20 years of road tripping - I told him it's cos I wasn't there as co-driver), and the floods impacted the repairs... the car still isn't fixed.

Quincy, if I wont change my mind until then,

I'd like to write something about sanctity of 'Guest Rights'

throughout history and in different cultures' 

 

I also want to bring few good words about Mongols - I know Quincy I know, that's how life is ... misbehave once & people wont forget for 7-8 centuries. To this day -  I feel they have less of a GOOD PR, than let's say Airbnb ... . 

 

C U in Dec.
