happy pi day!

Nobody believed me when I said I was going to make a pie cake.
"No, really, what are you making?" they asked.
"Really, I'm making a pie cake," I would reply. They only laughed.
Then I finished it.

"Ohhh," they chorused. "You were saying 'Pi Cake.'"
Happy Pi Day, everyone!


I feel like my blog posts are always an amalgamation of various different "topics"; for instance, the beginning of today's blog is a Happy Pi Day thing. Right now I'm talking about separating my topics into specific "personal blog" and "DIY/art blog" blogs, and in a little while, I'll show you some DIY patching and a few random pictures from today. Even as I type this, I'm thinking the separation wouldn't work, because I'd struggle to figure out what goes where. "Photography" would go in with an art/DIY blog, but what is photography and what is just pictures of my siblings? So yeah - it has been suggested before for me to have a separate blog for separate things, but I think that's just not going to work.

Besides, my blog is a good reflection of me: random and everything.
Which reminds me that I haven't updated it yet. Oops.


Earlier this year I picked up a stuffed robot from the discount bin at Target for Josiah. He liked it so much he took it around with him, including outside - where it promptly fell victim to my two puppies' ever-present teeth. They seriously eat everything. Here's the robot's poor head:

Patchwork was in order! We ran it through the wash (the photo is from after the wash) and I stuffed it back up. I didn't have any suitable yellow fabric (I had some with flowers and some I wasn't willing to use for a patch), so he got an upgrade with white polka-dotted orange fabric.

It sorta looks like he got a skull graft.
Also orange:

These things rock.

Lastly, I went on a walk with my grandma tonight just a bit past sunset and got these budding trees silhouettes.

Ack, I just sneezed.

You say that oranges rock, but I also have evidence that says that you are not a fan of oranges... One part of you is lying! :-p

Hey, I can't help it if I'm a walking contradiction. These are mandarin oranges, and they're acceptable. :D

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.
