the quotidian (12.21.20)

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

Christmas shorts.

We devoured nearly two full loaves in one evening.

Leftover candied oranges from the diner: what to make??

My younger son stepped up for gingerbread duty.

My get-off-the-phone-now-and-hurry-up-already face.

Car colors.

Nearly ready to transition from field to freezer (and yes, I’m a little verklempt).

He fixes things, yay, hooray, and hurry up please.

The NPR buff (guess who!) wants to make sure not to miss anything.

Perched and chattering.

Little One likes his trucks.

This same time, years previous: rock on, Mama!, ludicrous mashed potatoes, 2016 book list, the quotidian (12.21.15), on my to-do list, toasty oatmeal muffins, Christmas pretty, middle of the night solstice party, lemon cheesecake tassies.

    Your Christmas shorts cookies look so festive! I looked for them in your list of recipes, but couldn’t find them. Will you please share the recipe, or tell me if they’re sugar cookie bars? Thanks Jennifer!

    Your posts stopped showing up in my Feedly when you switched your site over and I was so weirdly worried something had happened to you guys? Very relieved to have finally come to the source and found you all safe and sound and surrounded by baked goods. Happy holidays, Jen! Thanks for sharing here.
