the quotidian (4.13.15)

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

Scrambling to keep up.

Deluxe lunch: after an Indian-feast supper.

My husband is committed to his nuts.

He wanted to iron = wrinkle-free napkins.

He bought himself a new set of wheels.

You know your girl is growing up when she uses both hands to wash the dishes while talking on the phone.


Garbage disposal, country style.

After only three weeks, moving the pigs to fresh pasture. 
 Just look at that turned soil!


Sunday feet.

Two peas in a pod.

This same time, years previous: Mr. Tiny, deviled eggs, on fire, lemons and goat cheese, flour tortillas, my prego husband, in all seriousness, and Easter chickens.      


  1. May the kids should grow sunflowers this summer in the old piggy playground. They could set up a roadside stand.

    1. Except their old pasture is in the sheep/chicken pen and they will eat anything that pops up. But nice idea!

  2. Fun post. I enjoy peeking into your *ordinary* days. I see some similarities to ours and major differences, too. Variety is the spice of life...right? Have a lovely week! Hugs, Camille

  3. It must be beautiful up there right now!

  4. Tell me about the almonds: are they soaking in salt water a la Sally Fallon? Will your husband roast or dehydrate them? I've got a bucket of almonds in the basement; we usually roast them with soy sauce but I'm getting the stirrings of religion about soaking.

    1. a whole BUCKET of almonds?

    2. Yes, a 5 gal. bucket. That's how I store all my bulk stuff: beans, flour, sugar, pasta, nuts. I'm not a planner so having the ingredients always at hand saves many a supper uproar.

    3. Rebecca, the almonds are soaking re Sally's directions. And then I put them in the dehydrator till crispy. The problem is, they take awhile to dry and I'm feeling like maybe just buying the plain, salted, crunchy almonds at Costco instead. Is soaking really that much better?

      Don't your almonds get rancid sitting in a bucket for so long?

  5. You can freeze almonds, too ☺️
    Loving your captions!
