Book Club Tea: Schaeffer

Book Club ladies  are celebrating Francis Schaeffer's Centennial with discussion  of his  short book  on The Mark of a Christian today  and  a tea. 

We skype in a dear friend who is in Austria ( with Wycliffe Bible Translators) so the workings of the TIME with the 6 hour time difference is sometimes very hard. This tea is no different! 

I am making cucumber sandwiches and egg salad. Eggs are from a policeman who works with my son and raises hens. 
Bread is from Trader Joe's and Great Harvest Bread. Strawberries in the cucumber sandwiches  are from our trip to the mts. Not sure if there is mint growing in my garden so I may have to tweak that. I do have lemon balm from my sister's garden that I recently planted. Mint grows and grows but I don't think it has come back yet. 

        "...Hallo!  Why all these cups?  Why cucumber sandwiches?  Why such  reckless                 extravagance in one so young?"

-Jack, from Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest

It will be a yummy afternoon.
