Wishing I were here ...

Quite a while ago now, Les tagged me for a photo meme, but I forgot about it for a while, then we moved and with all the packing and unpacking... well, let's just say that it's been a very long time. Sorry Les!

Find your 5th photo file folder, then the 5th photo in that file folder. Then pass the meme to 5 people.

I'm not going to pass it on since it's been so long, but looking up this photo made me smile so I thought I'd share, even though it is so late.


The 5th photo within the 5th folder within the 5th folder ... is a shot taken in October 2006 at Cadboro Bay in Victoria, BC. I would so rather be there right now instead of sweating it out here in Tokyo!!

1. When will this hot, humid weather finally be over?

2. Beyond the Blossoming Fields by Jun'ichi Watanabe was the last good book I read. The Namesake was the last movie I watched. The last episode of Dexter Season 3 was the last tv show I watched.

3. Everything has its beauty but I'm still not a fan of insects.

4. 回鍋肉 (hoikoro, or twice-cooked pork) is what I had for dinner.

5. I'd like your recommendation of a great summer read.

6. Somewhere cooler, preferably near water (see above) is where I want to be right now.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to bed and my book, tomorrow my plans include maybe going out to take some photos for the first time in ages and Sunday, I want to read and maybe watch a movie!

What are you reading or watching this weekend?


  1. Oh, I wish I could step into that photo! That looks like such a beautiful place to be right now.

    I'm not a fan of insects either.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Nat!

  2. man, that hoikoro looks delish! I recommend The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson.

  3. I would like to be on Vancouver Island, too. Hope your weekend turns out as planned.

  4. Mistress L - Dexter is a great show, definitely one of our favourites!

    Wendy - Thanks, I hope you're having a good weekend yourself. I wish I could take a stroll along that beach right now too! Oh well, I'll just have to imagine myself there instead. :)

    Janet - It's really easy to make so it shows up as a meal pretty regularly in our house.
    I should've known you'd recommend The Gargoyle. One of these days I really will get to it.

    Booklogged - I didn't get as much reading in as I would've liked but we did get out today for a little while. Man was it hot though! Wouldn't it be so nice to be on Vancouver Island right now?

  5. I'd forgotten all about that meme, Nat. Thanks for playing along. That's a gorgeous photo of Vancouver Island. Makes me long for another trip out there!

    Hope it cools off for you quickly!

  6. Les - Sorry it took me so long to do it! It'll be hot here for another month or so, but looking at the photo does help. :)
