Pi day and Sketch Fest and Guppy photo

Yesterday was Pi Day (3.14.15...), but poor planning meant I didn't have ingredients for any of our usual types of pie on hand. You can't have Pi Day without pie, so we scoured the pantry for anything that could become pie, and found some frozen cranberries (meh), dried mangos (doubtful regarding successful reconstitution...), and a can of pineapple. A quick google turned up this pie, which is arguably the greatest pie I have ever made. I may add nuts next time, but the consistency, flavor, and flaky crust turned out just PERFECT. Yay, Pi Day.

This morning I woke up about the time the alarm usually goes off and decided I needed another piece. No one else is up, so I'm taking a leisurely morning to myself and doing a quick blog post while I enjoy another slice. I may do a little writing next, or another sketch or two for Sketch Fest, which is going on for another several hours! (I may also head down to the basement and get some orders together - I have coloring books to go out, and a giant print service order.)

Have a photo of Guppy from last week.

We went for a long walk in the very cold, yesterday, and saw many of the 'armaments.' It was 20 below, but we bundled up very well. I have a replacement phone coming in this week, so there will be more photos to post again, probably. I realized as I was hemming and hawing over a phone upgrade that I had been paying for some fancy 'out of warranty' insurance on my phone that covered a replacement. Horrah! There was a deductible to pay, but it was way less than a new phone, and instead of '21-35 business days to ship [which, WHAT?]', is shipped via FedEx express and should be here on Monday, having been ordered Friday morning. Yes, please!
