summer holiday

What I did on my summer holiday:

*complained about the heat A LOT! Justifiably so since last week saw record high temperatures in Japan!
*ate a fair bit of ice cream
*finished 2 books (reviews forthcoming)
*watched a lot of Prison Break (24 episodes! The characters and scenes from the show are now invading my dreams!)

Even though we didn't go anywhere this year, and I didn't end up getting much done that I'd hoped to, it was still nice to have a week off.

A nice end to the holiday was being nominated by Nymeth for a Thoughtful Blogger Award.
Thanks Nymeth! H asked me recently why I spend so much time online. It's because of all the thoughtful, interesting bloggers that I read! I always have a hard time choosing who to pass these on to so if you're reading this consider yourself nominated!


  1. Hi, Nat

    Congrats on the Thoughtful Blogger Award, you so deserve it!!!

    You have made some wonderful changes to your blog, I am loving it!

    I look forward to the reviews of the book you read on vacation. Glad you had a nice one and that you are back!

  2. Congrats on the award!!! I love your blog and I think you so deserve it. ^__^

  3. Thanks Lotus!
    I'm slowly trying to tidy things up a bit and post a little bit more. Thanks for noticing!
    We didn't actually go anywhere but it's back to the usual routine this week.

    Thank you! Saying you love my blog- you made my day! :)

  4. Congrats, thoughtful blogger! A well deserved award indeed.

    And yay for ice cream! Although, I have to say, record high temps are not so much fun.

  5. LOL. Thanks Andi!
    Yes, Ice cream good, high temps. very bad!

  6. Congrats on the award! You definitely deserve it. I know what you mean about having trouble choosing. I love being tagged, but I always feel like passing the awards on to everyone. I can't choose! It's so difficult!

    Well, you know I've been complaining about the heat. :) I can't wait for October! Or, please God, an early cold front? Please, please?

    I guess I should be happy we went to Michigan, but I feel like I didn't get a vacation at all, for some reason. I think it might have to do with the fact that hubby went to two really terrific places I've always wanted to go, without me. I need to be reminded that I did go to a place I love. Okay, so slap me, would ya?

  7. Congrats on the Thoughtful Blogger! But definitely earned!

    Any week when you don't have to work is going to be a good one! When Prison Break first started, I watched it religiously. It's filmed fairly close to me, and my best friend did a lot of extra work! I have some great pics of him and Dominic!! I really need to find them and post them!

  8. Thanks Nancy!
    I'm right there with you wishing for an early fall! October still seems so far away.
    Hey, I'd be jealous too about your hubby's trips. Heck, I'm jealous about H going to Paris on business! :P

    Thanks. We watched it so intensely last week, I'm quite addicted at the moment. We're about a third of the way through season 2 now but will have to wait until the weekend before we can watch any more. That's very cool that your friend did extra work on it. Those pics would be fun to see!
