I was a middle school Activities Director for 20 years which means I did lots of crazy things.
One of our "go to" websites was Brownie Locks.
Looking through the list of monthly, weekly and daily crazy celebrations provided my Leadership class with a lot of fun ideas.
One of my favorite Crazy Days was Hagfish Day when everyone wore ugly outfits.
As a former math teacher and a long time dork, I decided we would celebrate Pi (3.14) Day on March 14 at our house this year.
I invited JP and his girlfriend to come for pie and they requested strawberry - easy in our area where strawberries are a year round crop.
The kids were busy today so they asked if we could celebrate Pi Day on March 13 pointing out that this year the entire month is 3.14.
The table setting was dictated by the colors on the pitcher ( a vacation memory from a week in Taos, New Mexico) and the sweet blue hydrangeas I picked up when I was buying the strawberries at the produce stand.
The table was only set for dessert because JP insists on going to our favorite Mexican food restaurant whenever he comes to town.
Simple blue place mats, favorite yellow napkins. yellow handled flatware and of course the numbers 3.14 all made a festive table waiting for the slice of red for my primary color scheme.
Alas, there are no pictures of the slices of pie topped with vanilla ice cream - it was dark when we ate dessert and JP took the second half of the pie to his friends who got a kick out of the concept of celebrating Pi Day.
If you notice on the list of "days", tomorrow is National Quilting Day so I should do a post about the quilts I have made.
Or, the little quilted pillow I am making for a blogging friend, but
tomorrow my volleyball team has their first tournament and I will be in a gym all day and later there is a St. Patrick's Day party on the lane so I won't be posting.
I also noted that tomorrow is True Confessions Day so I will 'fess up' and admit that
I have been avoiding work today
I am way behind in responding to e-mails
I have been putting off going to the gym today
my Creative Space could be better described as Chaotic Space.
