A She's Here! Weekly Link Round-Up

The time I've been cleaning like a madwoman for has finally arrived: our niece, Daisy, is here for two weeks from the UK. Denis had to work, and as you can see in the photo, we had a car and driver pick our niece up at the airport-- a very posh way to arrive at your final destination. Unlike previous times when we've had visitors or when we've taken holidays elsewhere, I didn't manage to get all my blog posts written and scheduled for this block of time.

Guess what? It feels strange, but I'm not going to worry about it. If I have time to write posts, I'll write them. If I don't, there may be some gaps here and there during the next two weeks. The nice thing about it is that I'm sure you will all understand. Family is coming first, over blogs and books, which is as it should be anyway. What makes it different is that I made the decision not to attempt to be Superwoman and make everything perfect.

Daisy is so much fun to have around, and with all the things we have planned to do, I know that I'm going to be taking tons of photos, some of which I'll be sharing with you. So forgive me if there's a gap or two in my posting. And now I'll head out to the corral. Head 'em up! Mooooooooove 'em out!

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. Have a great time with Daisy! You'll all enjoy this time and the adventures ahead. Can't wait to hear about places you visit and see photos.

    Don't worry about the blog. I still have so many round-up links to read I'll be busy for days catching up. Have to watch out for more book ideas.

    1. On our first all-day adventure, Denis and I wore her out-- Daisy went to bed at 8:30 PM! Although it's good to know we've still got it in us, we were knackered, too. LOL

  2. I hope you'll have a wonderful time with Daisy, Cathy! And please don't worry; we'll be here whenever you get the time to post. I'm going to be busy investigating a shipwreck, anyway...

  3. Have fun with Daisy! Hope she likes her visit to the States!

    1. Among other things, she spent almost two hours zip-lining all over the Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde today. She was all smiles!

  4. Zipling? She is braver than I am. Good for her.
