the quotidian (6.20.16)

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

The job that takes FOREVER.

More weeds!

To live off of: quinoa, feta, kalamata olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a light dressing.

Bacon from our pigs, eggs from our chickens, lettuce from our garden: MY lunch.

How my younger son makes toast: defrost it in the microwave till it’s hot, chill it in the fridge, 
and then toast it.

Growing feet: the ten-year-old versus the fourteen-year-old. 
My son is going to be enormous.
Gettysburg: we made like good homeschoolers and went on a field trip.

Creek envy: at my aunt and uncle’s.

Family extended.

Getting her “round.” 
(Apparently, it’s a big deal.)
After the accident, one of my first questions 
(after learning he sustained no long-term damage, of course) 
was, “How long until he can do dishes?” 
 I didn’t ask it out loud, but I thought it.



The man hates it when I get in his personal space so I do it all the time. 

This same time, years previous: the case of the slipping snood, in recovery, magic custard cake, walking through water, the quotidian (6.19.12), refried beans, this particular Friday, what I got, cabbage apple slaw with buttered pecans, swiss chard rolls, and sour cherry crostatas.
