Mid-Summer Already!

My gosh! I have 3 more reviews scheduled, 4 drafts in progress, and two books that I've just finished.

All of those scheduled and in progress were completed in June. A little minor surgery and a thyroid imbalance slowed down the physical activity in June so it turned into a reading marathon. When I wasn't too tired to keep my eyes open, I was reading, but as usual, not reviewing. So the first week of July will be reviews of June books.

My only crafty activities (besides the ever present embroidery) were these flowers for Calamity Kim's Fabric Flower Flickr Group.
While I was in my "too tired to do much" state, I attended only Marcia's morning restorative yoga classes. Last week when I began feeling more energetic, I went to one of the evening "fitness yoga" class and...injured my shoulder. Duh!


  1. I can empathize with the thyroid imbalance ... happens to me, too. Hope you're feeling better!

  2. Sorry you haven't been feeling well. I think the heat is really starting to slow me down. Every time I try to read, I end up falling asleep. Eeks! Hope you feel better, soon!

  3. Betty and Boo's Mommy - I never realize until I'm exhausted! Things are much better now, thanks!

    Bookfool - Oh, the heat! Hasn't it been something lately? The heat and humidity are a taxing combination.

  4. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, Jenclair, but glad to hear you are improving.

    Your fabric flowers are beautiful.

  5. Oh no! I hope your shoulder is feeling better soon. At least you were able to spend some time reading while recovering. Of course, reading is the easy part, isn't it? I need to work on a review, but I'll probably put it off until tomorrow now.

  6. Sending you lots of good vibes so your shoulder heals and you regain your energy. I agree with Bookfool, the heat is probably no help either. I've been so sluggish all week. I've gotten a lot of reading done, which is good, but that's about it.

    Love the flowers by the way! are you going to use them as brooches or for something else?

  7. Booklogged - My energy levels are improving, thanks! About time, too :)

    LF - Oh, yes, reading is the easy require more effort!

    Iliana - Thanks for the good vibes. The heat does make you sluggish, doesn't it? But we actually got rain and cooler temperatures on Sunday and more today!
