Saturday Morning Coffee with Biscotti and A Good Book

 
While browsing through an Italian grocery shop this past week, I couldn't resist picking up a package of biscotti.
 
These traditional Italian cookies are the perfect pairing for with a morning coffee. And I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Saturday morning than with a cup of coffee, a Cappuccino Dipped Biscotti and a book I picked up at the library yesterday.


 
My Hyacinths are still in bloom. These are the second blooms.


 
These biscottis are the best I've tasted in a very long time. They are perfectly crisp, but still hold their own when dipped in coffee. These are Cappuccino Dipped with Almonds, but I also tried the Chocolate Chip Dipped in Chocolate. They were delicious as well!




 
The book is called Simple Country Wisdom by Country Living.
 
 
It's "501 old-fashioned ideas to simplify your life" and as you can see from the table of contents, it covers just about everything.

 
I wasn't the only one enjoying the treat. He snuck in and knew exactly what to do!
 
 
Willen absolutely loves our trips to the library and loves to read. This is one of the things I love about him. He can pick up a stack of books and easily sit for an hour, quietly reading to himself. It's something we've really tried to encourage. His closet in his bedroom is his Library.
 
 
The last of my Daffodils are still blooming as well.
 
They've almost finished, but they've brightened our entrance for a couple of weeks.
