the quotidian (10.17.16)

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

Such a marvelous food.

This is what giving up looks like.

Nobody was a fan.

Her eyes were bigger than her stomach.
I made this salad (which I love), and my husband said, 
“All butternut squashes belong in pies.” 
Debate entertainment.

Anything to distract from Algebra.
Stunned: window-crash victim.

Sideways thinking: I bought the game for my husband because I knew it would 
make the kids happy, which would, in turn, would make him happy, and I was right.

Post (no-Jennifer-and-therefore-very-fast) run, cool-down strip.


This same time, years previous: a list, the adjustment, grab and go: help wanted, that thing we do, apple cake, and pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting.

    Had to laugh out loud with "All butternut squashes belong in pies". I totally agree! Don't see the appeal AT ALL with ANY KIND of squash but put it in a pie and somehow it's magically transformed into something decadently edible!

    Wow, that's a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker! Poor thing. Did it collide with the window where you guys found that little House Sparrow a while back? Some stickers and shiny objects to break up the window's visual transparency may reduce bird collisons. Hope this little guy was ok afterwards!
