When Your Friends Are Put Up For Sale

They auctioned Cindy to the highest bidder. This is shocking! I had to bid. When one's friends are put up for sale, one is obligated to help them out. Provide safe harbor. Give them a fighting chance so to speak.

Barry Schacht and Jane Patrick donated Cindy to the live auction at SOAR. Anne was the auctioneer. There was a stand-in, Flat Cindy....

as Cindy herself could not be present.

The bidding was lively. I was at the back of the room and could not see who I was bidding against, but I was determined. Maybe they could see that: people dropped out of the bidding and I bought Cindy!

She has been visiting this week: she took the time to see some of Sonoma County and the Bay Area too, it's perfect California weather for a respite from recent Colorado cold and snow. We have been kibitzing. Noshing. Getting up to no good.

This morning, in honor of all that is food, and since Cindy was not able to come this past Fall, I am making the quiche we all love from Granlibakken. Amy got the recipe for me from the chef: it starts with 90 eggs and 8 lbs. of flour! We have adjusted :).

And yes, it's noon, and we are still hanging out with Sophie the cat and in our pajamas:

Tonight, Cindy speaks at my guild. I hope she brought slides of the work she does: Cindy is a woodworker, cake decorator, felter and furniture make in her own right, besides being the Planning Manager at Schacht Products. She is the epitome of Renaissance Woman: she does a little of everything and she does it all very well. I am happy to call her friend!

Flat Cindy moved on to other households. I have not seen flat Cindy in the wild myself, but I heard she dresses up, and gets up to no good there too! Thank you Jane, thank you Barry!

Now, off to eat the quiche. If we eat it all we will be in a food coma.

Food comas are a proud family tradition.

The pajama tradition seems familiar. And my goodness, what a little sleeper in the family, speaking of pajamas.
