On this day I always celebrate Pi Day by showing you my painting
Stand back for the pie. I know that Pi day is about the numbers.
Today was all about numbers in every respect. Our clocks jumped
ahead by one hour at 2 in the morning, leaving us feeling unbalanced
We actually forgot about Pi day, but somehow knew instinctively that
pie must be consumed. So we had delicious pizza last night, and the
remainder today. Steven quite often bakes a pie on Pi Day, but
instead we indulged in takeout pizza leftovers.
Here's what I wrote about Pi Day last year:
"I'm lucky to be married to someone who enjoys science
and math -- just like my mother, the bacteriologist did.
I love science too, but am not always the best at math.
According to the Huffington Post Pi Day is named after the
Greek symbol π which is the ratio of the circumference of
a circle to its diameter. The first three digits in Pi are 3 (this is the
third month) and 14 (the fourteenth day) = 3.14 or Pi. What
better day to eat pie if you get the urge. Or even a cookie
pretending to be pie if you want to. And any way you slice it
you will not be alone in your pie indulgence."
I went to bed early last night trying to work with the new time, so I wouldn’t
be so tired today. But I think it takes our bodies more than a day to adjust.
Our cats, and our dog will know in one day that it is 6 o’clock in time for
supper exactly on time. So maybe it takes us one day too.
This painting is living in our favourite flower shop on Avenue Road. We
just came out of Lockdown on Monday, so we haven’t had a chance to
visit yet, but I’m sure my painting is still happy there. I hope you had
some pie to celebrate Pi day. And I hope you make the time change
Have an adjusting to the new time by eating pie day.
