A Nesting Weekly Link Round-Up

It's an overcast, drizzly day here in the Valley of the Sun-- a day that many of us who live here would describe as a lovely day. Only those of us who live with a surfeit of sunshine could get away with that description. It's also a bit chilly here in the house, but I'm not about to turn on the furnace. Nope, I'm going to gather together my nesting materials: books, tea, and afghan. Once I'm finished here, it's off to curl up with a good book.

But I'll share a photo first. It was taken at Sand Harbor Beach, Lake Tahoe. Personally, this is the way I like my beaches. Uncrowded. Peaceful. The lifeguard station is closed. You can tell it's fall in the Sierra Nevadas because of the golden color of a few of the trees. But... you know what catches my eye most on this stretch of beach? It's that tree stump. First of all, I think it's a bit odd that they left it there. (Health and safety and all that jazz.) But that dead piece of wood catches a corner of my imagination. Doesn't it look as though it's making a run for the water?

On that silly note, I'll head on out to the corral. I have some books calling my name on this quiet, contemplative Thanksgiving weekend!

  • With the death of another Navajo Code Talker (George James Sr.), I thought I'd share the website with you. Lots of fascinating history and stories-- including interviews with some of the Code Talkers themselves.

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. I know just how you feel about the weather, Cathy! It's the same where I live. Enjoy the weekend. Now, if you'll excuse me, there's a Celtic tomb to explore...

    1. You and I certainly enjoy exploring tombs! ;-)

  2. If I ever visited the wolf sanctuary, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to leave! Sounds wonderful.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
