HNT - Vacation 2 2007

I'm off work again this week. I took a week off in July and a week off in August. I like splitting my time off in the summer into two separate weeks. Typically, for a vacation, we don't go on any big trips -- we just enjoy family time together and do a day trip or two during the week.

This week has been all about doing some work around the house. Mostly yard work and re-working our den -- we replaced our computer desk for a beautiful new one and had to shuffle around the bookshelves in order to fit the giant new desk in. It was a lot of work, taking all the books off a set of eight book shelves in the den so they could be relocated. But it was worth all the hard work because we were also able to fit in a comfy reading chair in the corner which is perfect for this mini library in our basement. (That and every time I re-alphabetize or re-organize the books, I rediscover some wonderful book I bought years ago but that I still haven't had a chance to get around to reading . . .)

We also managed a return trip to Port Dover, a visit to African Lion Safari as well as a few days of fun in our pool.

Here's hoping that everyone else's summer has been just as fun. Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday to you.
