A Hither Thither & Yon Weekly Link Round-Up




This has been one of those weeks that we all love, so this intro will be short and sweet and then we'll move right along to the links.

Beyond the usual grocery run and other weekly errands everyone is used to, Denis has had his doctor appointments, I've had my doctor's appointment, and-- most fun of all-- I had to get my driver's license renewed. I can't stand such excitement.

I'm being released by the great folks at the John C. Lincoln Wound Clinic and have been referred to a lymphedema clinic that's a half of a mile from our house. That's where we'll get down to the nitty-gritty in terms of what I'll have to do to get my leg healthy and happy again (and keep it that way). It seems there are all sorts of gizmos besides compression socks that are available, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

Now that all that stuff is out of the way, I think I'll go celebrate. After all, today is my birthday/anniversary! Head 'em up! Moooove 'em out!

►Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones◄

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!

  3. Happy birthday and anniversary, Cathy! That's lovely! I hope you do something special, even if it's small. It's good to know that you won't have to travel far to get the follow-up care you'll need for your leg. And now (as if I had a choice) those vintage books are calling me...

  4. Happy Birthday to you, Cathy! And also Happy Anniversary! So happy that you're able to get around a bit, even if it is to renew your driver's license (such a chore). Have a good day!

      I was in and out of the DMV in twenty minutes. I couldn't believe it!

  7. Happy Birthday and Anniversary! Good da for you and you even got to do some things outside, even as unexciting as going to the DMV and a doctor's appointment.
    Hope everything with your leg finally works out for you.
    Meanwhile, thanks for those links, even though my TBR list just climbed again.
    I'm reading Disappearing Earth, by Julia Phillips, set in Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia. Such different lives from ours there.

    1. Disappearing Earth is buried in a wish list somewhere. Let me know what you think of it.

  8. I'm rushing to finish that book, as The Hollows is waiting for me at the library. (And I have work to do, may have to ask a neighbor to hold the book for me!) My self-discipline with an anticipated book is about as good as it is for chocolate in this house.

    1. My self-discipline is lacking in some areas, too.

  9. Disappearing Earth is an unusual book. First of all, life on Kamchatka is so very different from that in the Western highly industrialized countries. People come from poor towns, and many are Indigenous. The Even people, key to the book, are still reindeer herders.
    After a crime is committed, the book them focuses on several women chacters and their lives. And several people get together to solve the crime that the authorities buried under the rug.
    It's worth reading. It sent me to google Kamchatka, the Even people and more.
