The Circus Has Left the Town Weekly Link Round-Up


This week brought something Denis and I both needed. Badly. Some serenity. Some time to recharge. Since Denis was discharged from the hospital, this place has resembled a three-ring circus with one healthcare professional after another coming in and out. And in and out. And in and out. It was exhausting for us both, but we knew it was necessary in order to get everything Denis needed in order.

With no circus in town, the two of us have been able to relax and catch up on some badly needed sleep, and although he has yet to race me up and down the driveway on his scooter, Denis is getting up and moving around a lot more. Things should improve even more today when he finally gets the correct dosage of his pain medication-- something that has taken entirely too long.

It's been so good to see him getting around the house that I'm almost ready to challenge him to that race.

Enjoy the links!

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.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. And don't forget to curl up with a good book!


  1. So glad Denis is improving and you both are getting some sleep, free of constant visitors. This is a good omen for the future.

    Glad to see the links, but am again seething over book bans. What a dastardly scheme to teach children not to think.

    But so many other good links I'll read today.

    1. Every single day there seems to be news about more book bans and censorship.

  2. Ah, isn't it great to finally get some time to yourselves, Cathy? I'm so happy for you that your place is more or less yours again, and I hope you'll take photos of that driveway race! Now I'm going to check out that Viking settlement, and then those paintings!

    1. I'll have to hire a race photographer... ;-)

  3. I wish you both a lovely and relaxing weekend! :D

  4. I'm so glad you are both finally getting some rest and peace.

    I really enjoyed the link to Beatrix Potter's artwork. I would love to get prints of some of those!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. So happy to hear things are calming into a new normal for now! And thanks for some fun links!

  6. Exciting books in the Crime column in the Sunday NYT Book Review. But especially outstanding is The Bangalore Detectives Club set in the 1920s. It's being called a cozy, but it sure sounds good to me.

    1. I'll have to look that one up, although the title is vaguely familiar.


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