and just like that...

july is waving good-bye, but before she runs away, i captured what she's leaving behind
fading colors and bees and berries and an unexpected heart
tell me you see it


simply summer

there was a segment on the today show recently that questioned how effective our memories are, due to the fact that we don't have to remember anything like we used to, since everything important to us lives in our phones. one of their questions pointed to the fact that most of us can remember our childhood phone numbers from years ago, even though we probably don't know the numbers of those closet to us that we call daily or weekly. luckily, this is not me…i actually have a ridiculous memory for numbers. 

this past week, three movies threw themselves at me and i have to say, i really liked all of them. they are all very different from each other, but they all held my attention. 1} THE BEST OFFER with geoffrey rush 2} WORDS AND PICTURES with clive owen and juliette binoche 3} THE JUDGE with robert downey jr.

have you seen any of these movies? tell me your thoughts?

i'm reading an elizabeth berg novel, forgetting how much i love her and will devour "tapestry of fortunes" if i'm not careful.  i also just finished "outside the lines" by amy hatvany, a book about mental illness, which was so incredibly good.

i'm not really counting, but there are twenty two more days until i turn fifty one. okay, maybe i'm counting.

all i know is that this means our summer is going by way too quickly and that makes me sad. i love having the windows open, the air conditioning off and the 3 days a week farmer's markets. speaking of farmer's markets and well, fresh tomatoes…is anyone else out there a lover of bruschetta? i've declared bruschetta my "summer pizza" and honestly i could eat it everyday. thankfully my hubby loves it, too and is the king of tomato slicing and dicing. 

i hate to admit it, but i'm still watching the bachelorette train wreck. anyone else care to admit this, too?
