Happy Pi Day!

“Mom”, Mimi said urgently, “Can you bake a pie for me to take to school tomorrow.”

“What one earth do you need a pie for?” was my astonished reply. 

“It’s 3.14, National Pi day” she said, as though it was the most logical thing in the world.  (and I suppose, if you are going to celebrate Pi, you would be one of those logical types that already knew this.) Of course, I was perfectly willing to provide a pie in the name of science.   Time (nor inclination) didn’t allow me to bake a pie, but fortunately our local grocery store happily provided us with a freshly baked pie.

I had to laugh when she turned to me and said, “Oh, and I don’t think I’m going to need a lunch because almost everyone in my class is bringing a pie”.

Happy Pi Day!

    Nice job of crust decorating! Looks yummy—is it apple?

    By the way have you ever read the book “Life of Pi” ? Great book!

    Ooops, I forgot to clarify that this isn’t the pie that I bought. It came from a math web site, that obviously got it from somewhere else, so I don’t know who to give credit too. I just thought it was really clever.

    I’m actually in the middle of “Life of Pi” it’s very interesting.

    Well you know how I love pie. Not a big fan of pi though, requires too much thought, but pie … love it! Who knew there was a day for it … I’ll have to add this to the calendar so I don’t miss out next year. The Life of Pi was a great read.

    Your grocery store put the pi sign in! Wow! Could I have some vanilla ice cream with mine?

    haha, she would be pie’d out then!

    Suse, when you’re finished with “Life of Pi” I would like to talk to you about it and see what you think. It’s one of those kinds of books that you need to talk to other people about once you’ve finished. Loved it. Very thought provoking.

    And here I was thinking you were brilliant at crust carving! 🙂

    Too funny. It really proves how mathmatically deprived I am. Never occured to me that this is pi day.
    Creative thinkers nowadays.

  7. Becky says:

    I so want a pie now.

  8. Second the liking of Life of Pi. I took a math test today and pi was nowhere to be found–and I was ready for it!

    We celebrated with Pi Pie’s today too. Not nearly as pretty as yours though 🙂

    Hey Susan! I only knew it was Pi Day yesterday because I received a quirky Happy Pi day e-card from my friend the computer scientist. I wish I had thought to make a pie to celebrate… your’s looks so yummy!

    I was popping by because I wanted to invite you and your readers to visit a new website that a friend of mine is launching. The website is BudgetArtists.com. My friend Tricia is a freelance writer and mom of 4 who has felt a serious calling to do SOMETHING to help everyone that is being so hard hit by the economy right now. BudgetArtists.com is her way of helping. The goal of the site is to provide tools to help families live well during hard times.

    To launch, she’s having giveaway drawing for each day and also hosting all kinds of free seminars… from ones about job hunting to car maintenance to home management. I hope ya’ll will help me support her by dropping by to visit.
