the quotidian (5.9.16)

After watching the Air episode of Cooked: feeling virtuous about my sourdough.


For the crisp.

Sharing: one of the recuperation gifts for her (generous) older brother.

One of the best gifts ever: after my son’s accident, my friend gave us
the gift of her two cleaning ladies for the day. 

Pump it up.


Time for shots: captured.

Waited on hand and foot.
(But only occasionally. Most of the time we ignore him completely.)
Study buddies.

How we entertain our Sunday guests.

This same time, years previous: the science of parenting, rhubarb crunch vanilla ice cream, how it is, immersion (lots of good book suggestions!), so far today, black bean and sweet potato chili, the family reunion of 2012, rhubarb cream pie, “that’s the story of Mom and us”, naked pita chips, warts and all, going to work, and kind of a joke.

    (A quiet belly chuckle here.) As a not-far neighbor, I wondered the same thing. At least open fire restrictions have been lifted here.

  • Mama Pea

    LOVE your eldest daughter's new haircut. Suits her to a "T!"

    Burst out laughing at your comment regarding helping the walking wounded. To my mind, a very healthy way to handle the situation. (Bless his little hard head. And mending spine.)
