Wow, we have had record-breaking highs all week. I love the heat, but it was too hot for T-ball practice or playing outside until Friday. Even then we couldn’t stay outback long. I am lagging in the review department and have reached an all-time low in my scheduled posts. Yikes. I had to sit down and write some reviews on Saturday. Between my knee, vacation, watching 3 kiddos, and my work I am finding I fall asleep super early and I’m not power reading. Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

    We had several really nice days without the extreme heat but it didn’t last. It’s been hot the last few days. It’s getting ready to storm here and then we go back to the 70’s for several days. Believe me, that’s not the norm for June here! Rain tomorrow as well as I go for my last dental crown appt. I think I need to celebrate! Hope you all get a break from the heat soon!

  2. vidya

    it has been very hot here as well and going to be hot again in the weekend.. and hopefully this weekend will be a little better so we can head out to the beach..

  3. Tyler H. Jolley

    Summer is such a busy time. Especially since your grandkids are getting older. I hope it stays warm but not too hot. We were at 110 twice last week. Killer. Have a great week!

  4. Joyousreads

    It’s been an exhausting week for me as well. But that’s because I don’t stop moving, running, and work and kids. Sigh. I need a vacation. But that’s not in the horizon anytime soon, unfortunately.

    Well, I hope you stay cool, Kim. Happy reading!

  5. ShootingStarsMag

    You certainly have a lot going on! I’d be slacking on the blog too. Actually, I kind of am. LOL Ugh, that’s way too hot out. I’d need a pool or I’d be inside.

  6. Alysia

    Actually, I need to do some power reading this week. I (and Goodreads) feel like I need to be a bit further along than I am right now. Going to my TBR.

  7. Katherine

    I could take some of your heat! I was hoping to take Will swimming but it hasn’t gotten out of the 80s and is just way too cold! It is no fun when it gets too hot for everything though. Get some rest! Have a great week!

  8. MarthaE

    It is hard to be out in that heat. And I can understand that watching three children would wear you out. Take it easy and take care of your knee.
    I hope you get more reading and reviewing in. Have a good week.

  9. sjhigbee

    Urg. So sorry to hear about the intense heat – and the knee. Both tend to make looking after children something of an uphill battle, no matter how much you love them… I hope the coming week is an easier one, Kimberly:).

  10. Rachel

    It’s been super hot out here, too! Over 100 every day and it just drains me. I haven’t had much energy for reading or blogging either. Stay cool, Kimberly! 🙂

    We had record breaking, or almost record breaking highs here too. It is not my time of year. I prefer fall and spring. Oh well. It is summer I guess. I am supposed to be getting a copy of The Sound of Violet as well. Hope you’re able to get some rest and get back into the swing of things. But I think the heat makes me more tired as well. Have a good week!

    We finally had some rain here but it was still hot. You have had a lot going on so it is understandable that the blog suffers. Don’t feel guilty everyone will understand. (((hugs)))

  13. A Voracious Reader

    I don’t know how you manage to do it all. I have reviews to write for books I finished weeks and weeks ago. :~O I’ll get to them eventually. I have faith you’ll get yours done much quicker than I will. lol Take it easy and rest that knee!

  14. Jinjer

    There’s heat and then there’s TOO MUCH HEAT! lol I hope it is more in the “tolerable heat” range this week.

  15. Lola

    We had a really warm week here as well. It’s annoying when it’s so hot you can’t do much. That’s nice you got some reviews written. I hope you’ll have a good week!

  16. Mareli @ Elza Reads

    Hi there Kimberly! Life has been a bit hectic on my side as well and I don’t even have the heat to blame. Sometimes you just need to take a bit of a break, glad to see you are asking for book bloggers to help a bit! I’ll keep an eye out for your review requests.

    Take care of yourself!

    Lots of Love,

    Elza Reads

    I’ve written one… Maybe two, blog posts in the past month. My head just isn’t in it. Actually, I can mentally write the blog post but when I sit down to actually write it? Nope! Nothing. It sucks. Lots of luck on getting some posts written this week! I hope the temperatures drop a little to something more comfortable.

  18. Hannah

    I love how your lagging in the review department is much than I could manage in a couple months, haha. Hope you’re able to get a little reprieve from the heat!

  19. jessicabookworm

    Kimberly, with all that going on, it is understandable that your reading and reviewing has gone down! We also had a heatwave but it has just ended and the rain has returned! Take care and happy reading in the coming week. ?

    I hear you on the reviews and reading. I hope that improves for you this week. I’m having a hard time getting reviews posted, too. I have a backlog of notes for them. Maybe I can both can knock some out this week before my fiber conference starts.

    I’ve been seeing and hearing about the heat wave in the West and Midwest. It sounds awful. I pray the heat breaks soon, and you go back to more normal temperatures.

    One of my high school classmates moved to Wisconsin from North Carolina about two months ago. She loves cool, gloomy weather. Needless to say, she was not happy that they’re having record-breaking heat too. She posted that it was 86 degrees there recently and she doesn’t have air conditioning. I hope your temperatures drop to a normal range soon.

    Enjoy your week!

  22. Laurel-Rain Snow

    We’ve had hot days, too, and I definitely avoid going out. My blogging has fallen off, too.

    I hope you have a great week, and stay safe.

  23. Greg

    Hope you’re feeling better. It was hot here too for a few days then it kinda cooled down a bit. Hope your heatwave lightens up a bit!

    My reviews have been down too. Must be summer. 🙂

    Clare Mackintosh’s looks good… I had another of hers I wanted to try.
