31 Beautiful Things, Day 25: Book Club
I love my book club. A friend started it a couple of years ago, and it has become one of those things that I never, ever want to miss. Last night we had an honest-to-goodness tea. Our book for October was The Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society, so a tea seemed appropriate. One of our members is gifted with the giving-tea gene. She a dozen different china cups from which to choose, a few pots of tea, and lots of delicious and dainty cookies and such.
Our husbands think book club is just an excuse to get together and socialize, but in truth, we do talk about the book (which had absolutely nothing to do with tea, by the way). Only one of us really loved this particular novel, but so we discussed all the ways we would have made it better. And we ate a lot. Oh, and we did talk about many, many other subjects besides the novel.
I am so thankful for this group of women, and for books, and especially for gingersnap sandwiches with lemon curd filling. Now that is a beautiful thing!
