What an absolutely glorious day. The relentless heat finally broke, and we were able to turn off the air conditioner this weekend. Our day at the lake held crystal clear blue skies and no humidity. The heat is supposed to build again this week, so I guarantee that the air conditioner will be back on tomorrow afternoon. However, the break was wonderful – even if I discovered that my allergies are acting up again. This spring was the worst I’ve ever experienced for allergies, and now it appears that this fall is going to be just as bad. I’ve already started doping up with my prescription meds from last summer to be on the safe side.
I was able to finish one book this week, in time for my blog tour stop with said book on this upcoming Tuesday. I’m hoping that my free day tomorrow will afford me time to finish at least one other book so that I can move out of this slump.
I was in a rather reflexive mood this week as I discussed the truth behind my reasons for blogging, my issues in parenting, my need for more reading time. In addition, I joined another challenge – my favorite one of the year. As for what’s coming next week – I really hope it includes more reviews. It means I’ve finally been able to finish another book!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day tomorrow and enjoys the end of summer!
I enjoy the heat as well, but it has been SO hot and SO dry for the entire month of August that I was more than ready for a break. I sincerely hope that the allergy thing is a false alarm as well. It was such a bad spring that I am now more than a little gun-shy about going outside and enjoying the outdoors!
Sounds like wonderful weather, though I have to admit that I do love the heat! Allergies are not fun though, so I hope it's not as bad as it sounds like it will be.

My son is really bad, and he's never reacted to allergens in either spring or fall before. I agree that I would rather go around in a haze if it means getting fresh air.
I've started sneezing as if on cue. Allergies are killer for me in the fall, but I'll deal with it if it means I get to have the windows open for some fresh air on a beautiful day again!
Hope you have a lovely Labor Day, too! 🙂
