the quotidian (8.10.15)

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

Sunday morning leftovers.

Cutest corn muncher.

Loaded: one friend said the plants look like they have udders.

Waking up slow.

Charlotte’s (very large!) baby came back for a visit.

Fierce hugs and wet eyes: when friends move away.

Equestrian therapy: both the girls volunteer at a camp for people with special needs.

Fresh Air week is over: stories to come!

The man can fall asleep anywhere.

PS. A couple weeks ago, I was interviewed for a local podcast! If you’d like to hear me prattle on about blogging, parenting, and cooking, go here. (Other local bloggers were also interviewed, so, to Harrisonburg residents: be sure to check out those podcasts, too.)

This same time, years previous: a new friend, cheesy herb pizza, babies and boobs, the end, corn crepecakes, best banana bread, the quotidian (8.6.12.), and crunchy dill pickles.

    I really enjoyed the podcast – very fun to hear your voice. Love your point about writing for yourself. So important to remember when blogging. Thanks for sharing your art with us, you're such a gifted writer and photographer. Always looking forward to see what's next.

    FUN to hear your voice!!! Interesting that you were a blog *skeptic* before you launched your own blog. I suppose you might say that was my story as well. I enjoy reading your varied posts and visiting here with you. I feel like we are real-life friends. And, as far as this post goes…you know these are some of my favourites. That last photo is too funny. My poor hubby cannot sleep as easily as that…..does your hubby give lessons? 😉 Hugs to you! Camille

      He has a terrible time sleeping at night, though. It's weird. (And it's not because he naps during the day—he goes days with poor night-time sleeping before he will finally take a brief nap. I think he should see a doc.)

  • Karen

    I've always wondered what your family thinks about your blogging, since they are apart of the conversation and esp. now that you have teens. That wasn't mentioned in the interview.

  • Suburban Correspondent

    Ha! I've been sleeping on the floor for the past week (for some reason, shingles make my back ache and my mattress seem too soft). At least I'll be hardened up for camping…

    You did great! Very coherent {not that you aren't normally}, but… being interviewed can be tough. I started to sweat a little when he brought up Dr.P. 🙂 Love it!!

  • Rebecca

    I just listened to your interview while I cleaned the kitchen. You did great! I would run right out and read your blog if I didn't already.
