August Happiness Challenge -- Day 30

Sunday's Happy Cone goes to JAKE ARRIETA! The man threw a no hitter. Nine innings with nary a hit. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

I don't recall ever before watching a Cub no-hitter start-to-finish. Oh me, oh my, it is exciting! It occurred to me around the 5th inning that I might be watching history.

The man struck out the side in the 9th. Awesome.

What's that you say? What's the August Happiness Challenge?

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy chocolate cone. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.


  1. And he's a fine figure of a man! ;-)

  2. I remember the Happiness CHallenge, but I forgot to do it this year! I like the Happiness COne aspect of it. Also I think the WHite SOx also won their most recent game, so I guess it was a good day for Chicago!

  3. A game like that definitely makes your day happy!
