in honor of summer ~ 7QT (vol. 14)

I'd like to take a moment of silence in honor of Summer 2013 (especially June and July).  We loved you, and we are so sad to bid you farewell.

Okay.

HOLY CRAP, people!  It's August!  I'm having some major difficulty wrapping my mind around this tidbit of information.  Where did the time go?  It was good time, sure.  But did it have to go so quickly?  I guess it's true that time goes faster as you age.  Sheesh.
Sweet Clare of Come Further Up wrote a beautiful piece on Monday called Seeing Gratitude in the Mirror, and I'd like you all to go read it, please.  Sneak peak: "Forget about the modern ideal of beauty that will die before you do. You have the things that you criticize. So many people don’t. Is it really so bad to be able to see, to walk, to hear, to dance? Does it make sense to be so harsh on what gives you so much?"  I love this girl, y'all.
My gal Friday - I mean - Maria and I had a grievously overdue girl's night on Monday.  We went to see The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  I won't deny some of the action sequences were a bit extreme and unbelievable, but the rest of the film was so enjoyable, that part was easy to overlook.

Annnnnd, I have a new favorite movie.  Seriously, I love it.
As is the unfortunate case in almost all movies made after the 1950s, it has those token scenes and language we could all happily go without, and it is definitely not suitable for children, though it was so delightful, down to earth, and relatable to me in certain ways, I was able to overlook the negative aspects.
My wee little {simple saturday} link-up is happening forever, if you'd like to pop in!  Every Saturday, keeping it simple.  Be there, or be square!  (What does that even mean?)
