the quotidian (1.27.14)

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

White stuff fell, temperatures plummeted, and life-as-we-planned-it screeched to a halt.

The best snow in ages: it stays!

Pogo dog.

NOT a good landing.

Even when happy, they fight.
(Okay, so I'm exaggerating a little. But only a little.) 

My niece who won't talk to me but she looked at me so I think we're making progress.

What happens when we finally get out after being snowed in without fresh library books.

I see you but I don't hear you. Is that a problem?

Enlightening the leggy sticks of plastic.

Learning to iron, thanks to Grandmommy.

Eight of the ten ruffians at Friday's supper table.


  1. "Leggy sticks of plastic"! hahahahaha

  2. Great shots. Great commentary. You made me smile. Happy week to you all! :)

  3. I thought you often get snow! At least, it seems like it from where I sit. And I DON'T WANT TO TALK about the library fine I just paid, due to snow and ice and Christmas and New Year's and what all. ACK.

    1. Since we've been back, I've paid less than a dollar---ONE DOLLAR---on fines. Keeping my fingers crossed...

  4. Glad you all had fun in the snow. I always enjoy these Monday pictures. Like your new blog design by the way.

  5. The picture of your niece is the colors so much. And I love your stack of library books!! That's good stuff!
