Teatime Snacks

Today the HBP Society met in our home at Wisteria Cottage, and Elizabeth and I took advantage of having access to a well-stocked kitchen to make these delicious treats:

Chocolate pockets on the left and plain pockets on the right, a sort of modified croissant. As they were baking in the oven Elizabeth thought they looked kind of like raviolis. I thought they looked kind of like books. Book Club Pockets!

Later in the afternoon, we settled down with our morsels, cups of healthy Immune tea, and dove into discussion on the wilds of Isak Dinesen's farm in Africa.

The Blog Bug!

Hello fellow bookworms! Since a return to blogging yesterday, the blog bug has bitten me. I had just finished posting on my own blog, The Fairy Bookworm, and reading a beautiful post from Wisteria and Roses, when I remembered poor Mr. Pricklepants. His blog is so neglected it seems. He himself is neglected. I keep forgetting to bring the Mr. Pricklepants ornament that serves as our table-sitting-mascot to book club! I'll put him in my purse right now. There we go.

Today the Harold B. Pricklepants society will be meeting for lunch at Summer Thyme to finish discussing A Town Like Alice, and we will have the exciting event of choosing the next read. What shall it be? Gone With the Wind? The Great Gatsby? Out of Africa? War and Peace?
