Now y’all know this fall baby prefers summers, so I am not one to complain about the heat, but my goodness it was hot & sticky this week. With temps surpassing the 100s, the grands and I laid low, eating ice cream, watching movies and swimming at the Y. I am slowly catching up from my vacation. Mr. Caffeinated and I have been watching season 2 of Evil on Paramount Plus. He cannot binge, so we watch one a night. It works, as I work a little after dinner and then read or listen after the episode. The Disney rash came back with a vengeance this week on both legs this time. Did I mention aging sucks? LOL. Stay cool, stay healthy and Stay Caffeinated.

    Ugh…I hear you about the heat. It’s been pretty beastly.

    Sorry about that dang rash. I remember getting a rash on my thighs in Arizona during the heat of summer when I was a kid.

    Why can’t Mr. C binge? He CAN’T or he WON’T or he doesn’t LIKE to binge? Just curious as it is my preferred way to watch something. 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Thankfully, this rash is near my ankles, and has finally cleared up. Mr. C has the attention span of a gnat…lol He can’t sit for more than an hour. So, if we watch a show or series together, it is painfully slow. I prefer to binge the series or at least focus on only one series/show and only watch that until I’ve completed it. When the Harry Potter books came out, I would devour them, then read them to my kids or they would read them themselves. We’d all be done the month of its release. It took my husband a year to read each one.

      • Jinjer

        Hahaha thanks for explaining about the hubs. 😀 I prefer to binge as well, so, although this chapter-o-day buddy read I’m doing with Bellefleur is FUN and I’m enjoying it very much, some days it kills me not to keep on reading. But one chapter a day is our plan and we are sticking to it!

  2. Sophia Rose

    Yeah, a couple days last week were sweltering so I don’t blame you for holing up with ice cream and movies. Hope the rash goes away soon. Yay for getting back on schedule.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

  3. MarthaE

    I agree – you have to stay inside in this heat.
    Sounds like some fun with the grands.
    Sorry about the rash. I hope you find relief.
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  4. Wendy

    It looks like you and the grands are finding good ways to stay cool. I hope it cools off just a bit for you soon

  5. Terrie @ Bookshelf Journeys

    Thanks for hosting yet again – it’s a fun virtual get-together. The Boardwalk Bookshop sounds like a perfect summer listen – it’ll be next up on my commute book list! Happy Reading.


    I love summer too. It didn’t get quite as hot up here but the heat was nice as I fight off a nasty cold. Hope you have a great week!!

  7. Rachel @Waves of Fiction

    It’s been hot and then cold, flip flopping back and forth here. We were at the beach for a couple days and it was cold! We’re supposed to get really hot here in the next few days. I’m not a big Summer person, but I’ll survive. Still not as hot as down South, thank goodness!

    Glad to hear you’re enjoying the heat and ice cream makes everything better. Hope you get rid of that Disney rash!

    I am doing The Sunday Post for the first time. It was super fun. Thank you for hosting this amazing Book Meme.

  9. Patricia in New Mexio

    Yes, I totally understand vegging out during a heat wave! My dad says, “Growing old has a price.” So true, but he always laughs when I reply, “It’s better than the alternative!” 😊
    McGuire’s series sounds so interesting! I’ll have to share it with my grandchildren! Happy reading week!

    • Kimberly

      I got him to watch 2 episodes on Saturday. I complained a date out to the movies would be at least 2 hours….hehe.

  10. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    It’s funny, I’m a winter baby–although I guess technically I am a fall baby since my birthday is just before winter solstice, but I always considered myself more winter baby than fall, lol–and I love the winter! I loathe summer as it always starts around April and lasts until October around here and it’s just awful. I hate every day of it and we’re in real high temps here too. Upper 90s, but then you add in that humidity and we’re 100+! I’m longing for fall, but at this rate our one week of fall won’t be here until late October!

    I’m pretty bad about binging shows as well. I can do a few in a row, but when they’re longer episodes, I begin to tire of sitting still so long! Lol. My latest binge was Stranger Things Memorial Day weekend, though since Netflix decided to hold the last two episodes hostage after almost three years of nothing due to the pandemic, I was outraged. So I only watched 5 our of the 7 episodes that they dropped, because I refused to be left with another cliffhanger for a month! Lol.

    Nice new reads! Those are new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    I hope you enjoy Evil! We finally got Disney + in my country this week and it’s been binge season at my house

  12. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    I can relate to the extreme heat. We’re in the midst of it, too. On Friday I was standing outside taking family photos for a wedding and I thought I would absolutely melt. It’s “only” going to be 90 today and I find that I’m excited about that. LOL

    I hope your rash gets better soon.

    The weather here has been awful too. I don’t like the heat anyway though – I’m more of a cloudy, but bright with a warm wind kind of person!

    Have a great week ahead 🙂

  14. Lover of Romance

    I am looking forward to seeing what you think about that Jill Shalvis. And wow that is high temps, we haven’t had those temps here, we are still in the late 80’s which is just right for me. I hope that it cools down for you soon.

    Happy Reading! b

  15. Katherine

    We are in the over 100s here too and I’m not enjoying it. I don’t mind hot weather but this is ridiculous! I’m so sorry the Disney rash is back. I’ve never had it but I’ve heard about how uncomfortable it is. I hope this week is much better!

  16. Jen at Introverted Reader

    We were in the 90s yesterday and today. The air conditioner in our RV could barely keep us at 85, even with blackout curtains. Luckily we’ll be back in the 70s tomorrow. I hope you’ve cooled off and the Disney rash heals soon.

  17. Greg

    There is such a thing as too hot, and over 100 is it! I hope you get a cooldown! I hope the rash goes away soon- what a pain.

    I’m really curious about the McGuire’s, I haven’t read her in a while.
