Quotidian: daily, usual or customary;

She's got a plan and I approve.


Tamalitos!


Our personal guacamole chef.


Doctored Ramen.


Birthday pies.


You know you're a Mennonite when...
you bother to salvage the plastic bags in the midst of making 12000 donuts.


With my older son: running lines.


Braided.


Toot-toot.


He's on an experiment bender.


He  built a house.


Never too old for dress-up (though she did have to alter the dress first).


Post-shift.


Window washing: cat's got her back. 


Can you guess what he's making me?


Blood pressure checks: our version of dinnertime entertainment.

This same time, years previous: o happy!, salted caramel ice cream, contradictions and cream, the quotidian (10.8.12), clouds, green tomato curry, the quotidian (10.10.11), and pie pastry with lard and egg.

  1. A new kitchen island with drawers and inlets for knees/feet on stools?

    1. Yep, a kitchen island! It's been the plan for 10 years, but he's just now getting around to it. Stools on one side. Six custom-made cabinets. (So now I have to figure out what I want....)

  2. I vote for kitchen island, too.

    My aunt puts her drying bags on the clothesline. A whole row of them looks rather odd.

  3. That doctored ramen looks killer! What's in it? Kitchen island, I think. Boy I would love for him to make me one of those!

    1. Basic ramen, plus peas and carrots, then a fried egg and hot sauce and cilantro. Lots of black pepper. It was a cold day and I ate it on the porch steps, sitting in the sun.

  4. My favorite pics: horse braids and girl on horse. She looks like the cover of a romance novel (I don't own any books like that, but I've seen them in the bookstore).

  5. I totally want to come for dinner at your house with that list!

    I second never being too old for dress up. It's spirit week at the high school and the old dress up box came out of the attic for the week.
