August Happiness Challenge -- Day 1

Look at my happy kitty
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.

Today I'm celebrating a fresh, homegrown cucumber.
I live on the top floor of a building that doesn't even have a yard. So I  joyously received this lovely giftie from my boss, who lives on acres and acres in a far western suburb.

Tonight I upped my fiber content my enjoying a few cucumber slices with salt. It made me happy.

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 cat. 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. I bet that cucumber was great. They taste funny around here. We have yet to find a good tasting one.

  2. Kitty does look happy. A fresh, homegrown cucumber is always great. The ones you get in the store out here are kind of yucky. Have a happy day.

  3. Not sure how I have missed your posts, but found you today and will do my best to join in the challenge for August Happiness!! Awesome.
