Monday Mishmash 6/27/16


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. After Loving You  Things are coming along quite nicely for my October 3rd release, After Loving You (an Ashelyn Drake NA contemporary romance). I love the cover so much and can't wait to share it later this summer.
  2. Reading  I've been sneaking extra reading time lately and I'm loving it. I'm reading two books right now, a mystery and a thriller. Really enjoying both. :)
  3. New Planner!  My old day planner ran out of pages. The horror! But I've replaced it, and I'm loving the new one. The inside is so pretty. It has pockets, color-coded sections, plenty of space for notes, and each month starts with a list of important dates for me to fill in. 
  4. Blogging Break Coming Soon  I've decided to take a blogging break. One week off, starting July 8th. Why? It's summer and we all need a break every once in a while.
  5. Summer injuries  I was proud of myself for all the exercise I've been getting between running, walking, tennis, and swimming. But I got a terrible calf cramp on my last run and haven't been able to run since. It's a huge knot in the muscle. And…I have tendonitis in my ankle too. *Sigh* So I'm walking and swimming for now since those don't hurt too much.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. I hate those muscle knots. I can't wait to see your next book. I already have my 2017 planner and wrote some things I'm planning to do next year.

  2. Good idea to take a break. Apply ice and heat to the leg in turn.

    1. Yes, I'm trying to take care of my legs. Sitting still isn't really my thing though. ;)

  3. I love a fresh and empty planner. It makes me feel like all is possible and I have no mistakes to regret.

    Enjoy your break.

    1. I laugh at myself every year because I write neatly at first. That lasts about a week and then I'm scribbling all over my new planner. ;)

  4. Enjoy your break! I can't recall if I ever remember you taking one, you busy bee, you. ;) Sorry for the leg problems, swimming definitely is a great low key exercise. Except it always makes me ravenous afterwards!

    Sorry to hear about your injuries! :)

  7. I probably won't replace my planner inserts with a new set, but I have to admit that in the past year it did come in handy with all that I'd gone through. I now use it to look back at some of my progress. :)

    My mom had tendinitis in her elbow and she put a couple teaspoons of gelatin ( the raw packets, not the jello stuff) in her coffee every morning and after a few months, no more tendinitis!

    1. Wow. Never heard of that remedy. Very interesting.

      I can't live without my planner. We are attached. ;)

  8. Always wise to nurse the injuries first before going back to exercising. Swimming is still fine, I hear. Get well soon, Kelly.

    Planners always get me excited, too. Getting one is my favourite thing to do at the end of every year. And this year, I got 2 (one I got for myself, and another from a friend). I love them!

  9. Swimming turns out to be the best exercise for many back and joint injuries. But make sure that the water is sufficiently heated, with your muscle issue.
    We'll miss you on your blog break.
