the quotidian (5.21.18)

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

Snack: freshly-picked, underripe pomegranate.

A supper delivery, from the pastor and his wife: mapen (breadfruit) and fish stew, so good.

From Olga’s daughter: the best tres leche cake I have ever eaten. 
Playing hostess: our first real sit-down meal with Puerto Rican company.

Coffee and scones: with the Puerto Rican project engineer.
And with the state-side engineer.

Office work pile-up.

IKEA.

My younger daughter woke up with one of these nasty critters crawling on her head.
A stray cuddle.
Leryann’s Mother’s Day gift to me: her out-of-home business has quite the reputation.
Me and mine: El Dia de la Madre.
Birthday party brunch for a newly-minted ten-year-old.

Complete with an art class for everyone (such a good idea!).
I ruined our one shot at Polaroid fame.
An ordinary Saturday afternoon.

Touching base, constantly.
(Also, I have an office!) 
(And look at me wearing jeans I’m acclimating!)
From my (!!) instagram (puertoricomurches) post: 
“My front porch feels like we’re in the Caribbean. Oh wait  WE ARE.”

This same time, years previous: the quotidian (5.22.17), chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookies, campfire cooking, after one year: Costco reflections, the quotidian (5.19.14), the quotidian (5.20.13), the quotidian (5.21.12), baked brown rice, the boring blues.

    Wearing jeans in hot, humid weather–at first I thought I could never do that and then I found out that I could. Yes…acclimation.

      It's a mindset, I think, and an acceptance of the fact that feeling cool just isn't going to happen, no matter what.
