Saturday Snapshot

This is my first time participating in Saturday Snapshot, which is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. This week, we decided to take advantage of some wonderful delivery services we have available in our area.

On Friday morning, Doorstep Dairy & Desserts delivered milk, eggs, butter and cheese from local farms right to our door! The milk was in plastic this week, but it will be delivered in returnable glass bottles in the future. How cool is that?



Then this morning, we received another delivery from Marie's Cauldron. Marie is a local resident who grew up in France. She bakes bread and delivers it right to your door! The miniatures were delicious for breakfast this morning. Some are filled with chocolate! And I'm looking forward to the baguette with dinner tonight.



I know these services aren't available to most of my readers, but I couldn't resist sharing. Have a lovely day!

  4. Love the home deliveries - better tan the supermarket! And your pictures show how you can get really great photos from everyday things. My Snapshot is at http://chriscross53.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/recreating-medieval-abbey.html

  7. Welcome to Saturday Snapshot, I'm sure you'll love the experience. It's fun seeing photos from around the world. I don't know where in the world you live, but you're so very lucky to have such amazing products available- and delivered! It would be very dangerous for me to have such delicious baked goods land on my doorstep!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

Book Review: The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett

Peter Byerly is distraught over the loss of his wife nine months ago. He has retreated to their cottage in the English countryside, hoping to return to his love of collecting and restoring rare books. But when he opens a book about Shakespeare forgeries and finds a Victorian watercolor of a woman who looks just like his wife, Peter is soon on a search for the origin of the painting and the truth about Shakespeare's real identity.

The Bookman's Tale: A Novel of Obsession by Charlie Lovett is a wonderful journey for anyone who loves books. It follows Peter's search in 1995, which turns into a bit of a thriller at times. But Lovett also takes the reader back in time a bit so we can learn the story of his relationship with his wife and how he came to be a bookseller. He does a beautiful job of expressing Peter's feelings about the rare books he encounters, and his feelings are contagious.

And then he takes us back even further to the history of one particular volume, whos…
