The Domestic Goddess Weekly Link Round-Up

You know... like many of the rest of you, I just love to clean. In my case I love it so much that I'd rather take a beating than have to do it. I have a friend who used to have a cleaning woman come in once a week to take care of things, and I'd love to be able to do that, but there's something that bothers me about bringing in someone else to do something I should be doing. Does that make sense?

I wish I could be as funny as Carol Burnett whenever she played the cleaning woman on her television show, or as alluring as Melanie Griffith in "Working Girl," but I'm not.

However, there is something about spring-- and spring is fully blown here in the desert-- that gives me a minuscule molecule of incentive to freshen the feathers in my nest. I'd better take advantage of it before our greatly anticipated house guest arrives. 

I hear those links out in the corral. They're gettin' mighty restless, so I'd better put down the mop and bucket to take care of those critters. Head 'em up! Mooooooove 'em out!

►Books, Movies & Other Interesting Tidbits◄

That's all for this week! 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. There is something about the coming of spring, isn't there, Cathy? It makes you want to air things out, if that makes sense. Now, I've got a 7,000-year-old town to explore...

    1. We've been having glorious weather-- perfect for all those visiting us from col climes to go to Left Coast Crime!

  2. The 27 products for book lovers, just wow! I want almost all of them :)
    Enjoy your Left Coast Crime event. Wish I could be there too.

    1. I want most of those 27 things, too! Left Coast Crime has been absolutely fabulous; I wish you could be here, too.

  3. If ever I get the urge to clean, I lie down and let it pass!

    Good luck with your spring cleaning and the coming of bird families. I know that you and Denis do a lot to help out the parent birds.

    1. The Tombstone roses have begun their bloom. My backyard smells heavenly, Kathy.
