The Herding Dust Bunnies Weekly Link Round-Up

There actually hasn't been much going on around here this past week. Taking abrupt stabs at spring cleaning may be necessary but not very interesting. (I think the "abrupt stabs" are an attempt to scare my herds of dust bunnies into submission....)  Hmmm... cleaning, cooking, stocking up on groceries, dodging raindrops, knitting, a trip to The Poisoned Pen, and reading. That pretty much sums up the week. It makes me sound too much like a domestic goddess-- and boy howdy, is that steering you folks off on the wrong track!

I did mention herds a minute ago, didn't I? Well, I've got a herd of links here for y'all. Head 'em up! Move 'em out!

Books, Movies & Other Interesting Tidbits

Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones

The Happy Wanderer
  • A family is hard at work restoring an abandoned French chateau. (I've been following their work on their Facebook page.)
  • The 20 least-visited national parks in the western United States. (Location has a lot to do with the number of visitors. Fortunately Denis and I have been to some of them.)
  • 13 experiences you can only have in Arizona.

Channeling My Inner Elly Mae Clampett
  • Sometimes being the winter caretaker at Yellowstone would suit me right down to the ground, even with my aversion to cold. You'll see why!
  • I learned two things when I followed this link: (1) I never knew there was such a thing as a peacock spider, and (2) I never thought I'd say that a spider was pretty! (And they're so tiny!)
  • Contrary to appearances, this weasel does not have a ticket to ride!
  • Two llamas on the loose reminded me of the time I looked out the window and saw an ostrich in my yard.

I  ♥  Lists

That's all for now. Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure. 

Have a great weekend-- and read something fabulous!


  1. Cathy - I have to chase dust bunnies of my own around this weekend *Sigh.* But not until I check out those great links - thanks. There are a couple of really interesting ones on art theft. And I'm a Maggie Smith fan too :-)

    1. She's the only reason I watch "Downton Abbey"!

  2. So many fun articles to peruse!

    1. Thanks, Alyce-- I hope you enjoy them!
