It is time, once again, for the August Happiness Challenge! Thanks to The Gal Herself!

Here's a brief explanation of the 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."

8/1: Today my book group met to discuss The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. We had lunch at a nifty bistro and talked for over an hour steady about the book. What makes me happy is the variety of people in the group. We never all feel one way or another about anything. So many diverse opinions. It made for a very lively discussion. And it made me happy to connect with my colleagues and friends.

Oh, your icon is indeed a happy lad, isn't he? Usually clowns scare me, but not this one. I think the glasses make him look smarter than the average clown.

Sounds like you had a lovely afternoon! I'm glad you were able to connect with people who get you. That's so important.

Variety is fun! After I finish the Harry Potter's I am going to read that one. I am on the second book now.
