too tired to blog...

That could also be too hot and cranky to blog, but there you go. I'm having a hard time concentrating on much of anything lately except for reading, as long as it's not too taxing (thank goodness, because if I couldn't read the situation would be dire indeed!), and perhaps what flavour of ice cream to eat! Plus we're also off soon to visit the in-laws for a couple of days (where it's even hotter than Tokyo!! Gah!), so I'm going to take a little blogging break.
But before I go, I must thank the lovely people who have nominated me for blog awards lately: Jean Chia, Bibliolatrist, Iliana, and Stephanie. (I'm extremely behind on reading blogs as well so if I've missed anyone, please let me know). Thanks so much. It makes my day to know that you enjoy stopping by, and I'll try to return in an improved mood next week.

Bailey even got his own special award! He's so pleased with himself!

I think this one should go to Literary Feline's Anya, if for no other reason than as an excuse to see more photos!

As for passing on the other awards, that feels a little too challenging right now in my current state. I truly enjoy all the blogs in my blogroll and/or Google Reader, even if I haven't been by or commented lately. I haven't forgotten you though and the blog world wouldn't be the same without every one of you! So if you're reading this, please consider yourself awarded (take your pick)! :)

See you in a few days.


  1. Cute pics! Enjoy taking a little break!

  2. Have a great trip, and good luck staving off the heat. It's been miserable here, but yesterday was a surprisingly wonderful respite from the heat.

    And the kitties are adorable! They would make me sneeze, but I wouldn't care. I'd still wanna snorgle 'em.

  3. Enjoy your bloggy break. I know I'm enjoying mine!

  4. Hi nat =)

    If it helps, I have been soooo tired lately, instead of hoping to the laptop I rather read and eventually I post.
    For me this happens every time we get close to annother season.
    Right now i have the laptop on my lap on my bed after a nice shower which did not help.
    Take good care of yourself, You will be missed and rest before your trip
    your friend

  5. Such beauties! Anya is honored you gave her an award! She's purring quite loudly as a result. :-) I hope you enjoy the visit with your in-laws. And in the meantime, I'll work on taking more cute pictures of Anya.

  6. What is it with cats and boxes? Mine go nuts over them and have to squeeze in no matter how small. Your cats are lovely by the way!

  7. It sounds like you need to come visit us in Australia, where it is 5c and sleeting! Have a good trip. :)

  8. aww.. so cute!!

    oh, btw, you've been tagged! I know this will be just the perfect one for you! :)

  9. Me, too! I am a total slug. Fortunately for me, the weather has been horrid (as in thunder, lightning, buckets of rain) so I've had an excuse to unplug and read. Now, the problem will be catching up with other blogs and writing all the reviews.

    Have fun!

  10. That cool cat award is too cute!
    Have a wonderful vacation (even if it's to another hot spot!). Think of ice cream or read some books set in cold countries :)

  11. You have such a beautiful blog. I hope your break leaves you refreshed and smiling.

  12. Kim L- Thanks. :)

    Andi- LOL. I'll give them a snorgle for ya!

    Les- Thanks. It's been pretty good. I wouldn't mind a bit more time off work but I guess I'll have to make due. Glad you've been having a good break too!

    Madeleine- It actually rained and cooled off today which has been a very nice respite before it jumps back up again this week. I've managed to get some sleep during this break but I'm not looking forward to going back to work. :(
    Hope you and Oliver are doing ok.

    Wendy- LOL. I look forward to seeing more pics of Anya. :)

    Danielle- It's so true about cats and boxes. Jiro has just spent the afternoon happily snoozing in an Amazon box! And any new box that enters the house is immediately inspected! :)

    antipodeanowl- Oh 5C and sleeting sounds quite refreshing! :)

    Jean Chia- Thanks for the tag, I'll get to it this week. :)

    Nancy- That sounds like the weather we've been having this weekend. I'm so very behind on reading blogs now but it was good to have a little break from the blog.

    Iliana- We've had a fair bit of ice cream over the last week! And I am kind of reading a book about a cold place. :)

    Kelsey- Thank you and thanks for stopping by. It'll still be annoyingly hot for awhile but I am feeling a bit more refreshed and positive after the break.
