Okay technically we should be celebrating that magical oh-so-long number that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. While we settle for the lazy notation of 3.14, in 2009 pi was calculated to 2.7 trillion digits. 2.7 trillion! Makes my head spin, and it’s enough to make me want to eat pie.
Which is my preferred homophone in case you haven’t guessed.
Knowing that I covet the vintage tin toy with the pop up crows, a friend sent me the next best thing – a crow pie card. Makes me laugh in delight. And it was a chance to use the crow stamps I carved . So now I have a nice little flock of crows to happy my heart.
But pi day also reminds me that it’s time to mention my really favorite pie day – Pino’s Pie Day run by the uber-talented Katherine Dunn of Apifera Farm. It’s an annual event, held this year on June 15. Do go read about it – it involves donkeys and goats, pies and love and aprons, and elder animal care and adoption. And did I mention love?
Wonderful, no?! And doesn’t it make you want a slice of pie right now to celebrate all the goodness in the world?
So tell me, are you more of a pi person or a pie person? Maybe share your favorite equation or favorite recipe – they’re all welcome and I’d love to hear.
