the quotidian (11.5.18)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace
Tomatoes in cream, with toast.

To sweeten knobby, bitter carrots, an oven-roasting does wonders.  
Words become her.
Squashed.

A countertop facelift.


Practical love, rain or shine.

When jokes backfire.
I stick a beet tail in the trap and no one notices. Days later, my husband says, “Look what we caught!” I glance down, see my handiwork right by my bare toes, and scream bloody murder. 

This same time, years previous: old-fashioned apple roll-ups, meatloaf, musings from the coffee shop, awkward, bierocks: meat and cabbage rolls, cheesy broccoli potato soup.
