the quotidian (8.11.14)

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

Summer colors.

Peaches: roasted and sun-kissed.

Earning their keep.

Garden jewels.


Why, yes. I do let my children use knives. What makes you ask?

Slay me.

More fencing. Always more fencing.

Back from wilderness camp.

A couple weeks ago, helping me run lines. 
 The best part: letting her sound out the swear words and then laughing at her shock.

Cat and mole.

A Sunday nap.

Saying goodbye. 

This same time, years previous: getting my halo on, there's that, a bout of snarky, sanitation and me, how to can peaches, dried fruit, and orange-mint tea.


  1. Haha, the part about the swear words!! :D

  2. Are your peaches on the way to something else or are you eating them as is?

    1. Some got added to smoothies, some were eaten plain,some were blended up and added to buttermilk ice cream (the reason for roasting the peaches in the first place), and the rest were enjoyed with homemade Greek yogurt.

  3. You guys could have made your own puppy calendar.

  4. I was going to comment on the roast peaches, but those puppy faces!!!

  5. Buttermilk ice cream sounds scrumptious. Ever since I started culturing my cream before making butter out of it I've been shopping around for new buttermilk recipes. I've become quite obsessed really ...

    These photos are amazing.
