“Ah, August. It’s Absolutely Charming, Really!”

Hey peeps! August is here…er…well it will be on Friday. But the August calendar is here! Thank you again for all of the suggestions! I used em all, of course!

The baroness was addressing her new husband named August after she stepped out of her carriage and looked at her new home, a castle. “Ah, August (she pronounced it Augoost). It’s absolutely charming, really!” Can you tell I like that movie?

I took this photo at Perkins Beach, a little beach off of Edgewater Beach in Lakewood, Ohio a few years ago. The sand, rocks, trees and water (and fog) were just asking for a photo opportunity.

  1. The pic looks hauntingly beautiful. I luv Ever After! The retelling of the Cinderella story was awesome; as was Anjelica Houston. It made me appreciate Drew’s acting so much more. Her acting certainly got better since her Poison Ivy days.

    The calendar looks great. Everyday is daydream day for me :)

  2. Evil-E: Good pun!

    Eroswings: Thanks, I’m glad you like the photo, and I’m glad you enjoyed “Ever After”. I watched it for Dougray Scott (Prince Henry), but it’s a great romance and very quotable.

  3. awww, I saw that picture and instantly knew where it was taken. :*( single tear.

    thanks for the great holiday list. look forward to the thirtieth when I can finally organize something. Hope they serve sloppy joes at the ballpark! :P

  4. Ksra: Yes, you can’t organize until that day. No earlier, no later. Until then, be as disorganized as you want. I’m sure Jacob’s Fie…er…Progressive Field serves sloppy joe’s in one form or another. It’s a ballpark, food is supposed to be sloppy and good.

    Laura B: Thank you Laura! Once again, couldn’t have done it without all of your suggestions!

    BabyBull: Yes you do! It’s gonna be a fun month.

  5. Abroad: Or hopefully the weekend will have nice weather for barbecuing.

    Manuel: Of course! That would just be insane. ;) There should be a Marvel VS DC Day. Maybe in September?

    RM: Hi! Okay, I will add it! Thanks and welcome back!
