East Sooke Park, September 2011
So sorry for my long absence here. If you wondered where I disappeared to over the last while, a combination of illness and travel is what has kept me away from the blog for about a month. (I swear, where does the time go?) I was struck down by a nasty flu halfway through Book Blogger Appreciation Week (which made me sad that I couldn't participate fully), and then came my annual trip "home" to Victoria. I hadn't quite got over the flu by then and it decided to follow me to Canada where it turned into a lung infection. So fun! (Not really!) But even though I was a bit under the weather the whole time I was there, I still had a great time visiting with friends and family, some of which I hadn't seen for a few years! Now I'm back in Japan, mostly over the jetlag (and the lung infection), and getting back in the swing of things.
