This comment is from one of my readers and it’s one of the reasons I love blogging. Thank you Chante! I get SO excited when I hear from you all about something I’ve posted that’s inspired you.
“I read this post around eight this evening and I downloaded a sample of the first chaos book to my nook immediately after. It’s now eleven thirty and I’ve already downloaded all three books and I’m about four chapters in. I am totally addicted and now I have to recommend this series to all my friends so that I”ll have someone to discuss this with too. Thanks and I really love your BLT posts. I’m so glad you decided to bring them back. Now i’m off to find out what the eff the “quiet” is about.”

Just wait until you find out what the “quiet” is!!! You’re going to love these books. And I’d love to chat with you about them. I’ve been dying to talk to someone who’s read them…
Which leads me to this weeks BLT!!
Got another book for you. I’ve been plowing through audio books lately. I wish I could just sit, read a book and sip a cup of tea but I think those days are over for a while. As soon as I sit down I start feeling guilty and thinking about all the things I should be doing (laundry, dishes, and other equally tedious house hold tasks). But I can do all the afore-mentioned and listen at the same time. Guilt Free!!! Win-Win all around.
So now I’m completely riveted to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shafer and Annie Barrows. It is the polar opposite of the Chaos books and exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for. My aunt recommended it and when she recommends a book I run to get it. I don’t know which of us has a bigger appetite for the written word. And this book is the word at it’s best. I was laughing from the first chapter. I’ll keep ya posted as I progress.
Since this book is set in England (I swear I lived there in another life) and the island of Guernsey I thought it fitting to have some appropriate munchies to accompany me as I listen. My rear end would love it if I skipped this part but who can resist.
What’s interesting is just after the war (WWII, the time in which the book is set) making these would have been very difficult. Food coupons, rationing, etc. And to have the clotted cream…almost impossible. For those of you who have never had clotted cream (sounds a bit gross, I know) you haven’t lived. It’s worth being the sole reason one travel’s to England.
I’ve been inspired to create a tutorial after seeing this PERFECT BABY GIFT on Pinterest. I just fell in love with it, rushed to buy the PDF but it’s sold out. So I’ll get to work and see what I can come up with. No idea when that will actually happen but I can dream…you never know….
What mom couldn’t have used one of these at some point? Very smart…
So there ya have it!! Another BLT for a week filled with inspiration!!! Till next time.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
