6 Green Things I Love

This is my first time participating in a Small Talk Six on Saturdays. It’s hosted by the lovely ladies at MomDot. This week’s topic is to name 6 things you love that are green. Here are mine:

1. Money – I wouldn’t mind having more of it, in fact. It might be the root of all evil, but it’s also the route to most of my favorite things like food, shelter, Internet access and magazine subscriptions.

2. Grass – When the grass isn’t green, it’s pretty depressing. Then snow usually happens. But when you open the door one day to find the grass is not only visible but green – it’s a great feeling.

3. Kiwi Fruit – One of my favorite fruits, since I was little. My grandma actually has a kiwi fruit plant and I’ve always loved raiding her garden and picking a fresh snack.

4. Marzipan – It comes in lots of colors that all taste the same but for some reason the green is usually my favorite. Inexplicable, I know.

5. Being Green – I had to say it – I love all ways that I’ve found to be green, like shopping with reusable grocery bags – that’s probably my favorite green habit.

6. Spinach – It’s true. I’m one of those weird freaky people who loves spinach – cooked or fresh in a salad, etc. It’s good stuff!

What things do you love that are green? Be sure to link up your responses at MomDot if you play along!

Happy Pi Day!

Pi (pi) is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Pi = 3.1415926535…

Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts everywhere on March 14th.

If you (or someone you love) is a fan of Pi, here are some fun ways you can celebrate the Big Day (thanks to piday.org for these ideas):

  1. Bake a Pie with the symbol Pi on it, measure its diameter, calculate its circumference, and eat the Pie.
  2. Use a piece of string to “prove” Pi by measuring other circles’ circumference & diameter.
  3. Recite as many digits of Pi as you can as a team taking turns, or have a memorization contest and the winner gets to eat Pie first.
  4. Send your friends Pi Day eCards to remind them it’s Pi Day.
  5. Give everyone a “High Pi” instead of a high five.
  6. Get creative and write a song about Pi, or listen to music based on Pi.

Are you celebrating Pi Day in another fun way? Tell me about it in the comments section and be sure to mention it to PiDay.org, too!
