the quotidian (6.1.15)

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

My midday cup of joe: hot weather has struck.
Contented absorption: a rare moment (for this child).
Snap snap.

Ready for the homeschool evaluator.

Breaking all the rules and then capturing it on camera for me to see: so smart.

Planting trees pays off: the summer house.

Thanks for all the eggs, m’cluckies!
The field got a haircut.

Gardening in the buff, or so it would seem.
Our Work To Eat Program.
To go with potato chips: evening snack.

This same time, years previous: in her element, the race we saw, a bunch of stuff, on the subject of grade level, showtime!, small pasta with spinach and bacon, down to the river to chill, three reds fruit crumble, barbecued pork ribs, open-faced radish sandwich, and fresh strawberry cream pie.

    LOL…work to eat…that's what my kids do, too! We do piles like that for our evaluation visit as well. And…Charlotte really looks interested in the goings on. 🙂 Have a lovely week!

    "work to eat program" – you are brilliant. I am always looking for phrases to throw at my children to explain why they are doing what they are doing.

    these are all such interesting, excellent photos. love especially how you captured that peony.

    I wonder how many hours I spent with a hoe in hand when I was a kid. The worst part of summer! We live in total shade on our property so did not have a vegetable garden when our where coming up but I made them work by carrying in and putting away all the groceries. Let me tell you that it was a shock when the last left home and I had to do that chore myself!

    I like that work to eat program idea. What a concept. Oh, wait. about 25-30 years ago I wasn't that excited about it.. hmm. Great summer shots!
