the quotidian (11.17.14)

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

Round one: needs more work.

Dealing with her beets.

Soaking up the sun.

I wish she were this pliable. 
(No, not really.) 
(Well, maybe sorta really.)

11 am on a weekday. So, um ... recess?

Because a normal walk to the park is boring.

It used to be she wouldn't speak to me. 
Now she won't stop.

Trying to make rainbows, inspiration courtesy of Cosmos.
(Though I don't recall Neil DeGrasse Tyson suggesting using a cake stand to do so...)

He waited so long for me to teach him that he fell asleep.

Sunday night, 9:00: washing the dishes.

This same time, years previous: lessons from a shopping trip, official, why I'm glad we don't have guns in our house, so far so good, in which I ask a lot of questions, and homeschooling and socialization.  


  1. that final photo of the post is simply the best!
    is it a window reflection?! Q.

  2. As always, love these posts. Hugs to you! :)

  3. Is the experiment chocolate and peanut butter or pumpkin? Ah yes, the niece we share...all I have to say is "Amen"--and I'm thrilled!
