There’s a lot to be said for taking time off the j.o.b. for this. I had all three pies done or at least baking by 7 pm. AND i had most of the dishes washed!
The focus on art continued today as Roger Hayes came by for open studio this afternoon to work with Shane in his studio. The two of them were busy down there, I could hear banter and launching and periods of silence and machinery and the compressor, I have not been down there yet tonight to see the results, but they were hard at work earlier when I stopped down to visit a few hours in.
Meanwhile, the pies just seemed to go along, though adjustments were made here and there.
Sally, Roger’s wife and also an accomplished artist, was next to arrive. Roger and Sally live literally around the corner from us, but we almost never get to spend time with together. Roger announced to us this was his first ay as a gentle of leisure, so perhaps we will see more them. Hopefully.
The next knock on the door brought Bill with his daughter Emily, they are our staples of Nine Days of Pie, which is really nice. Almost like having family. We were all enjoying pie, even Emily liked the chicken pie, which is a big compliment from a 13-year-old! Then another knock brought Lila from over the river with her friend Jeff. They enjoyed a variety of pie and were soon as stuffed as the rest of us. When they arrived we had nine different pies on the table! I think Lila’s friend was a bit overwhelmed by the absurdity of the event.
We all enjoyed conversation about everything from art, to the madness of the election, DNA tests, secret family members, and we pondered the vast differences of people in various parts of America. What I am saying is, another perfect day!
I must say, Nine Days of Pie 2016 has been really stupendous so far. Tomorrow is another day and I don’t want to get cocky with 6 more days to go!
A merry Nine Days Of Pie to all and to all a good night!
