the quotidian (5.4.15)

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


Spring rain.


Freckles.


False alarm and dashed hopes. 
My daughter discovered that Jessica was, weirdly enough, producing milk. Could she be pregnant? We thought not, but then we counted back and, sure enough, pregnancy was possible. But days passed, there was no baby lamb, and we were left to wonder: do sheep have false pregnancies?
Do they produce milk when ovulating (or something)?


Tasty art.



I don't even know.


Doing studies while babysitting: because his mother is a taskmaster.


Any time, any place: in his own world.


A leaf crown: because springtime makes us feel royally grand.

This same time, years previous: carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, depression mayonnaise chocolate cake, creamy avocado macaroni and cheese, baked-in-a-pot artisan bread, the definition of insanity, take two, burning the burn pile, rhubarb daiquiri, green smoothie, how to get your bedding/house/kids clean in one day, roasted rhubarb, strawberry cheesecake ice cream, and classy rhubarb pie with cream cheese pastry.
