The Spirit Is Moving Slowly Weekly Link Round-Up

Which spirit is that you ask? The Christmas decorating spirit. Part of me wants to haul out every little smidgeon that looks remotely Christmasy and decorate the house to a fare-thee-well. The other part would rather my minions did it all while I point and supervise. The problem is... I don't have minions (although I've always wanted a few).

But hey-- my desk is decorated! (And I'll have you know that I only had to remove one tiny hill of paperwork off the desk before I took this photo.)

While the pro- and anti-Christmas sides of my personality duke things out, we're still dealing with doctor's appointments. They're not the two-per-week for two months I had through all these eye procedures, but still! At least my dentist is the last one I'll be seeing for a while, and now it's Denis's turn to trek to his doctors. And may I just say that I wish the rest of me was as in as good a shape as my teeth!

I'm still enjoying my new peepers. We've been bringing out DVDs of favorite movies that I've never seen with good eyesight, and it's almost like I'm watching them for the first time. Lots of fun!

All righty then. I can see those links out in the corral are up to no good, so I'd better get myself out there. Head 'em up! Moooooooove '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. That's the best news about your eyesight. How nice to really see your favorite movies. That is a holiday present!

    I love your computer nook with the holiday lights and the way it's set up, very cozy.

    Am going through the links, and have to write something today, but I'd rather spend the time looking at the links. (sigh)

    Hope your pre-holiday time is fun and you don't work too hard.

    1. Enjoy yourself this holiday season, too, Kathy!

  2. So glad to hear your eyes are doing that well, Cathy! And the desk looks very festive!! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a stone axe to grind... ;-)
