Weekly Wrap-Up #102

Posted July 30, 2016 by Kathy in Wrap-Up / 12 Comments

My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.


Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week.


These last 2 weeks have been busy so I haven’t had a lot of time to read and blog. Work has been crazy as usual and our weather has been in the 100 degrees. Normally I’m ok with the heat but lately I’ve been feeling awful. I’ve lost my appetite and feel exhausted by the time I get home. I drink a lot of water to stay hydrated but I feel sluggish lol. The weather is supposed to be cooler this week (only the 90’s) but hopefully the heat won’t bother me so much. Because of the heat we haven’t been walking so I haven’t caught any new Pokemons. That’s another reason why I hope the weather cools down lol.


I’m really excited about a new post on my blog called Get 2 Know. My daughter gave me the idea for the post and we will be working together on it. This post introduces characters I’ve grown to love and brings them to life with a look at their style of fashion and their Instagram (which is created by my daughter). It was a lot of fun to put together so I hope you’ll check it out. I’m working with Michelle @ Because Reading (Limabean Design) on the feature/meme image and I can’t wait to see what she designs.

  1. The heat is wearing on me this summer too. I’m not sure what exactly it is but I’m just done with it. I loved the Get 2 Know post! It was so interesting to see everything really laid out like that and really fleshed out the character. I haven’t read Cream of the Crop yet but I’m looking forward to it. Have a great week!

      I’m done with the heat too. I can’t wait for winter lol. Cream of the Crop is a fun read and I hope you get a chance to read it. Thanks Katherine for stopping by. Have a great week!

  2. Get 2 Know sounds like a great feature! Can’t wait to see what you come up with. Very original. And I hope you cool down- it’s been hot here but not THAT hot. You guys have it worse than us… hard to catch Pokemons in a heat wave. lol

      It has been cooler so far so hopefully this will last. Thanks Kim for stopping by and have a great week!!

  3. I hope the weather cools down there soon! We had a week like that here as well were it was so warm I felt sluggish, it was nasty. It’s a few degrees cooler now and much more doable.

    Congrats on your new feature, it sounds fun! And I am looking forward to the logo Limabean will design for it, I love her designs. She designed most of the graphics for me blog and my tour banners for Lola’s Blog Tours. I hope you’ll have a great week!
