Date Change!

Hi Everyone,
I totally forgot that Sharon and I had talked about changing book group to this Thursday, the 27th as there is no school on Friday and Sharon already had plans because of it. Please let me know if that works for you. If not, we will try the first Friday in March.

Book Club Night!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are enjoying "The Screwtape Letters."  I've been marking and highlighting so many great passages that I'm looking forward to sharing with you!

I only heard from one person about what night to meet so unless several more of you have conflicts let's plan on this coming Friday, February 28th at 6:00pm at my house. Please let me know if are coming or not so I know you saw this post. If I don't hear from you I will send you a text so I know who to plan for.

Since the book takes place in England it might be fun to have food for tea time. I will get a couple different herb teas and make some hot apple cider.  Here's a link to a Pinterest page that looks yummy:

I found this also:

"The Afternoon tea traditionally starts with savoury finger-sized sandwiches filled with smoked salmon, cucumber, or egg and mustard cress. These are followed by scones with jam and cream (clotted cream in Devon and Cornwall), and finally, a selection of cakes served on tiered cake stands. Variations on the menu may include the serving of English Muffins , thinly sliced, hot buttered toast or crumpets. "

So be creative and have fun! Maybe let me know what you are planning on bringing so we have a well rounded teatime with sweets and savories. Please feel free to bring whatever you'd like - this is just a suggestion.

Hope to see you all Friday!

Kris
