Book Club Night

Tuesday night was the book club meeting at my house and with Easter around the corner, it seemed appropriate to set a springy type table (though our first day of spring still had over a foot of snow on the ground and it didn't get above 16!). 

This month's book was Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.  It was a good read and based on 2 factual stories that the author weaved together.  The building of the World's Fair in Chicago and a serial killer who lived in Chicago during the time.  Did I like it?  Yes.  Very interesting.

This past week was quite busy for me so I did not make a dessert - gasp - I stopped at our local pizza place called Mr. Pizza for some slices of their cheesecake.  But, ask anyone, they do make the best in town and my friends did not complain!

I did have fun though with the table setting.

I bought 5 different kinds - this one was German Chocolate...

And some festive candy

Book club will be meeting again on May 1st and our new book is:

And yep, I already read it!  Stayed tuned for my review in May

Lastly, so much for the prediction of an early spring!

Calgon take me away!
