the quotidian (7.30.12)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace 

Bits of a supper.


Rain drenched: lately, so many storms!

Beans, beans, beans!

Making more of my new favorite pesto (and taking pictures this time).

The pesto: it’s good on pretzels, did you know?

Boys and sticks, a classic combination.

Lugging in yet another load: anybody want some?


Corn! It’s what’s for supper (again and again and again).

Leftover mortar: from a chimney repair.

Stocking the newly-built bookshelves.

When the wind blows, the kids panic.
They huddle by the door with all their blankets
and beg me to take them to the basement.
(To be fair, there was a tornado warning.)

Afternoon snooze (with his tooth fairy present close at hand):
he was scared of the wind and wanted to be with me,
but I didn’t want to be with him,
so we compromised and he took his rest time in the hall.
Which, in retrospect, is kind of pathetic.

Napping: he claims that he can’t snooze laying down. 

This same time, years previous: shrimp, mango, and avocado salad, experimentingsummertime pizza
