the quotidian (10.30.17)

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


Experiment: Almond braid. 
Verdict: Too much almond paste.


Lemon and sugar: to counteract the Sunday slump.


Collaboration.


Hooded.


Caution: makeshift riding ring.


Worn-out toys end up in the oddest places...


Frosted.


A dehydrated, malnurished, and motherless calf: ours for free if we could keep her alive.  



Girls' night out.
(Despite around-the-clock feedings, and an all-nighter by my older daughter, 
the sweet little thing was dead in less than 48 hours.)


Making jerky.
(NOT THE CALF.)


Wind-whipped.

This same time, years previous: reading-and-ice cream evenings, apple farro salad, the quotidian (10.19.12), quiche soup, under the grape arbor, dichotomies, applesauce cake.

  1. There is no such thing as too much almond paste, actually.

    And I'm sorry about the calf (and relieved she didn't become jerky).

    1. One POUND of paste for one braid? It was a little overwhelming. I think we would've liked it better with about half that amount. The rest of the braid was delicious, though.

      Re the calf: me, too. There were tears...

  2. I am going to have nightmares about that monkey head.
