the quotidian (11.11.12)

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

Destined to become brownies: (a part of) the Halloween haul. 

My candy getters.
They did me proud.

Squash, ready for pies and muffins.

Her turn: learning to make Dutch Puff.

Everyone told him it was broken and wouldn't work; he made it work. 
(Even if it lasted for only a short time, it was still a thrill.)

My old mums, reincarnated in the Maya ruins.

Dog sledding in Virginia.

With stuffed animals.


This same time, years previous: a boy book, chicken and white bean chili, peanut butter cream pie, my apple lineup, horseback riding, my year of homeschool torture


  1. LOVE the dog sledding in Virginia!

  2. Your dog is so dang cute!

    When my son was about 13 months old, we tied the sled to our dog and let him pull my son around, except the dog went on a RUN, through the woods and across a frozen pond. I nearly died. It was absolutely the STUPIDEST thing I've ever done. So glad my son has made it to nearly 13, even with his brainless mama.

    Tell your kids to stick to the dog pulled a sled of stuffed animals. :-)

  3. Was the littlest boy a cook for halloween?

    1. Yes, a baker. He put flour on his face.
