A new batch

I have ticked a few things off my To Do List for the day and can now settle down to read a bit.

I need, inter alia, to make some more notes about Augustine’s commentary on 1 John, which we will be tackling here on the blog as a Patristiblogger Project.

But before I crack the books, it is time to start a new batch of Mystic Monk sun tea!


As you can see, it is just getting under way.

Which I shall drink it on ice, as Preserved Killick would say.

Don’t be a Puir Slow-Witted Gowk.

Refresh your coffee and tea supply before you run out.


After a couple hours in the sun…

    Don’t let your little tree have too much tea it will be up all night!

    Right’you are father! Only a flat-footed, landsman would be caught up short without a right healthy supply of Monks’ brew! Bear a hand then….

  4. UncleBlobb: Belay there! We have no grass-combing coves in this combox!

    For a second, I thought Fr. Z had written “Don’t be a Pu-erh Slow-Witted Gowk”.

    Father, as an avid reader, retired English teacher and principal, I almost fell out of my chair, when you referred to Killick, of the 19 books of Master and Commander. Maybe I’ll get them all down for summer reading.

    Mr. Flynn,

    Have you ever had Pu Erh? (yuk!)
