I can't believe it is already August!
Tomorrow is my 22nd birthday and it is incredible how quickly time flies.
Tonight for dinner I made delicious heirloom tomato and cucumber salad. I am Greek Orthodox, and from August 1-15th, we have a period of fasting (no meat or dairy) in honor of Mary, the mother of God. I cut up the tomatoes and cucumbers, mixed them with some sea salt, olive oil, and chopped basil, and ate outside, enjoying the summer evening.
Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within as on the state of things without and around us. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte
