the quotidian (5.18.15)

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

On my kitchen sill.

Tart art.

For this recipe
I liked it, but no one else was a fan, and this recipe, I think, has greater flavor fireworks. 
(But the addition of peas was lovely.)

By the handful: how I take my poison.

Rhubarb leaf armor.

Bucket of Dobby.

Tatters: proof that another season is ending.

Because she wanted a turn: into the field for a driving lesson. 
My husband reported that she laughed hysterically the whole time.

Never send your husband to the hardware store for corn seed when there is a tool show going on.

(Any guesses as to what?)

This same time, years previous: my favorite things, talking points rained out, and cinnamon tea biscuits.


  1. Love that rhubarb leaf armor! I still remember my oldest, as a 12-year-old, staving off winter boredom by making himself an entire suit of armor out of tinfoil. He was the lucky one, growing up without any Internet.

  2. I love the armour! Tatters is also a lovely photo. I guess a shed or house for piggies?

    1. Good guess, but nope. It's a jack for raising up the walls of a house. He says it worked.

  3. We used rhubarb leaves for tea party dishes. Quite the thing to have done an entire armor though.
