A Have Pool Will Read Weekly Link Round-Up

It's not been the kind of week to write home about. A good friend has undergone surgery for lung cancer. Another has just been told that she's no longer in remission, and that she has to start chemo all over again. The weather has also been good at fraying the tempers of even the most cheerful and mild-mannered of humans. (Daily temperatures of well over 110°F./ 43°C.)

Little wonder that I've found myself escaping to my shady end of the pool down by the waterfall... and into a series of good books. The sound of the water and the words on the page work wonders on focusing my mind on the positive.

Of course, if I'm spending a lot of time in the pool, that means that I'm not tracking down links. Ah well. We should all have such paltry things to grump about!

Let's get on to those links, shall we? Here's hoping that you and your loved ones are all safe and in the best of health... and that you all have a glorious weekend. Enjoy summer to the utmost!
