I was on a roll, I was enjoying reading and writing and then May exploded. In a normal year mid May to mid June is crazy for anyone working in education. When you throw in COVID restrictions coming to an end during the same time period my final weeks of work were exhausting. I had a May Read of the Month selected and had intentions to finish the book and review it, but life got in the way.
Once my school year ended on Friday June 11th I was simply mentally and physically exhausted. I had no desire to read or write that much. I decided to give myself the month of June off to truly let my brain relax (I did not take the month off physically, as I walked twenty-eight of thirty days in June.) So now that it is July I am mentally well rested and ready to get back into reading and writing more. I did not finish my May Read, The Girls I've Been, so I am sorry there is no review. I did like the book when I started, I just never found time to finish it, maybe one day I will go back and pick it up and try again. I do have a new book for July that I will introduce shortly, it was dropped off by a friend and so far I am enjoying it (I am nearly halfway finished as of this morning.)
This is not a post trying to explain a lack of posts, it is a post to stress the importance of taking time to rest your mind, just as we do for our bodies. So bring on July and bring on more posts. Have a safe and Happy 4th of July everyone!
