The Almost Overbooked Weekly Link Round-Up

I've gotten too used to having appointments strung out over several weeks, but there's always an exception, isn't there? This week has been busy, busy, busy-- and not with the usual laundry, etc.

Tuesday, we had (1) a grocery delivery, (2) a lawn spruce-up, (3) pest control (sounds a bit better than what I usually say-- "the bug guy"), and (4) a new windshield to be put on the Jeep. I have to admit that I was a bit worried about it because I thought the chances were good that no one would pay attention to their scheduled show-up times, and they'd all be out in the cul-de-sac fighting over the same parking space.

Huzzah! Although half didn't show up when they were supposed to, there was no fighting for prime parking, and everything went like clockwork. Denis's two doctor's appointments on Wednesday slotted in with everything else that needed to be done, and that day went smoothly, too-- with the added bonus that Denis received nothing but good news from his doctors.

This was all just lovely, but you know what I'm worried about now? That if we try to do all that schedule-everything-on-the-same-day jazz again, it will turn into one big mess. Why? Because that's how my luck usually runs!

Speaking of running, I'd better scurry out to the corral before those links stampede. Head 'em up! Moooooooooooove '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. Yikes!!!! That's a lot to try to get accomplished at once, Cathy! My head was spinning just reading it. I'm glad you got through it, though. And now, I'm off to check out that sunken ship...

    1. Don't forget to check that air tank first!

  2. Lots going on - glad it all worked well and I'd be like you in thinking that lightning wouldn't strike twice. Had to take a look at the Texas book list. I've read 2 and own 2 more. The rest are probably too bleak or Western-y for me. Also enjoyed the list of crime writers telling which books are them - 'perfect' crime novels. Very nice!

    1. I really enjoyed that last one you mentioned, too.


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