Sunday Snapshots

Food & Drink featured prominently this week:

IMG_3527I’ll try anything once; even chocolate-covered maple smoke bacon soda.

Yes, you read that sentence correctly.

First Impression: It’s not that bad.

Second Impression: Just a tad sweet . . .

Third Impression: I’m drinking carbonated chocolate syrup.

Fourth Impression: Oh dear Lord, that aftertaste!

Final Impression: This is vile; the bottlers should be charged with crimes against humanity.



A former student now living in Maine brought me a 12-pack of Moxie!

With patience, I can make this last for six months.

For the record, I still have 3 of the bottles I received on July 4.

Slice of Apple Pie

I baked three apple pies this week.

My apple corer/peeler/slicer no longer cores or slices.


My mother called to confirm I’d bake one for her and Dad when they visit.

I’d count that as a success.

ChipotleI went to Chipotle for the second time in my life.

I don’t normally photograph my meals, but this one just looked so good on the tray.

Mine is the one on the right.

I ordered the steak bowl with black beans, vegetables, mild salsa, sour cream, and cheese.

I’m not a fan of guacamole.

I like avocado and mayonnaise on their own.

Together, not so much.

I walked downtown

By now you know I took pictures of bricks:

Of course, I also made time for books:

Casual Vacancy NotesI found this relationship schematic in the front of A Casual Vacancy. I’m sure it will make sense at some point, but I’m more concerned with the fact this was written in a library book.


Package from England (Blink of the Screen)Another package came this week!

Royal Mail and USPS delivered my copy of A Blink of the Screen by Terry Pratchett.

My TBR continues to grow.

Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you . . .

Also, I finally caught up with my Reading Challenge!

Goodreads Challenge


It feels good to be back on track.

Except – as of today – I’m already behind again.

I’ll make it up this week.


Probably not.

Don’t forget to follow me on:

Facebook – where I share news stories, articles from other blogs, and various and sundry miscellany that happens to catch my eye. It’s stuff you won’t see here! Well, mostly.

Instagram – where I show you my Life in Motion and share quotes and such. The widget only shows my last three photographs – don’t you want to see them all?

Twitter – where you can see my thoughts in 140 characters or less. Also, funny retweets.
