The Pretty in Pink Weekly Link Round-Up

It's almost as if the weather has been apologizing for mudding me out of the pool for a week. We've had storms almost nightly for the past seven days, but if it rains, it does so at about 3 AM and doesn't make much fuss. A few gusts of wind, a couple of bolts of lightning, a little rumbling, and some rain. More like how monsoon season used to be before we turned the area into a sweltering heat island.

I think I'll leave you with a pretty before heading out to the corral to round up all the links. They're getting restless!

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. Oh, that 'photo is lovely, Cathy! There's nothing like the way the desert blossoms when there's rain. Gorgeous! Now, I've a chariot race to explore - and then a shipwreck *rubs hands.* Thanks as ever for the great links!

    1. You and I gravitate to the same sort of archaeology! LOL
