Piece of Pi
So, as I was saying yesterday, I decided to make this little mathematical frippery. What, you say, is it? Think back to your geometry class in high school. Think circles, think circumference, think area. Yup, it's pi (taken out to eight decimal places). I couldn't help myself. I've been wanting to make one for ages. It's one of those pieces that probably only I will ever like, but I do like it. Before you know it, I'll be making conic sections jewelry. Sometimes I have to follow my inner geek.
Plus, the Husband, who is an engineer, finds it amusing.
On other fronts, we made pumpkin squares at the SO's Mom and tot cooking class today. With cream cheese icing. I have to say - we both really enjoy this class, but I am finding, given that most of the stuff we make are baked goods, that it's quite detrimental to my waistline. The old equator has definitely been expanding over the past month and, for once, it's not because I scarfed down leftover Halloween candy. If only I could find it in me to NOT EAT SWEET STUFF when it's in the house. This is the reason I hardly ever bake anymore. I would appreciate finding a little willpower in my Christmas stocking this holiday season, please.
Believe it or not, I have even more new work tomorrow. (I should mention at this juncture, however, that I am going to be taking next week off for Thanksgiving.) Thanks for stopping by!
