Book Club

Book club was a very small group, tonight. There were only 5 of us. Which turned out fine because that made all the wine and food for us. We discussed Mary Oliver's Blue Iris. Mary Oliver is the group's favorite poet. We read some of our favorite poems. I was surprised to find out that I understood a poem better, when I heard it read.

Our hostess, Cindy had some different food: stuffed grape leaves, cucumber dishes, different dips and home made pita bread. The wine was a Chardonnay--very light. Afterwards, we had tea and desserts. The desserts were made by a former bakery chef, from Mike's in Boston. Mmmm.

Next month, it's my turn.
