the quotidian (12.21.15)

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


Not there yet, but getting closer.


Soup for the soul: another double batch.


Trimming the tree: no longer my job.


To the kids: To Kill A Mockingbird.


A shelter for her prego (we hope) sheep.


Cutting roof.


He wanted new clothes so he went to town.



Clockwise: knitting, writing an essay, reading a novel, listening to a podcast.


Saturday morning running buddies and the photobomber.

This same time, years previous: on my to-do list, how to have a dunging-out date, toasty oatmeal muffins, self care, the quotidian (12.19.11), chocolate-dipped candied orange rinds, middle-of-the-night solstice party, and walnut balls.

  1. I am assuming you are reading Mockingbird in preparation for Watchman?!?!?! It was so so so good!

    1. I haven't read it yet, but I want to! Is it something the kids would enjoy listening to? Mockingbird is one of my favorite read-alouds.

  2. I would think so. It would provide lots of good conversation opportunities along the same lines as Mockingbird. It is from the adult voice, but your well read kiddos wouldn't mind that I am sure.

    For me it was one of those put is down, walk away for a minute, reread the last paragraph several times, take a break and grab the tissues kind of book. I wonder too for curiosity sake if being a born and raised Southerner affects how I feel about the book. After reading it I wish I could meet her and ask a thousand questions. Knowing that Watchman was written first I have all sorts of theories as to why Mockingbird came out of it to be published instead. I could go on and on. After you read it I vote for a post and discussion!
