the quotidian (8.12.13)

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

Good, but not great: chocolate cookies
She made bread.
Hard at work: the artists.
Our house: from the sketchbook of the lead artist.

Lazy: the plan is to sleep under all the folded-up blankets 
so as to eliminate making the bed in the morning. 
It never works.

Dresser drawer beds (for rest time): because a regular bed is too boring.
My older son reading a Nicholas Flamel book to the youngers.
Because…after I took a whole bunch of movie minutes away for bad behavior,
I told them they could earn them back by being exceptionally kind to each other.
A cut-up foam mattress: what to use when there is no saddle.

Our new country reps (that’s MCC lingo for our in-country bosses) came to visit! 
They have little girls!
My phone’s been bugged.
(My younger daughter carries it around on her shirt
—its prickly legs make it stick like a bur—and calls it her pet.)
(Don’t worry. It’s dead.)

    Great post of the *everyday* that doesn't look very *everyday* to me! What memories you are creating…some I am sure you will one day look back on with fondness…some, I am sure you will want to forget. But, all of them are treasures. 🙂

    Blessings to you!

    Oh, goodness. That bug is gross! And here my mother complained all weekend because my house seems to be invaded by crickets. I'm going to show her this!
