the quotidian (8.23.16)

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

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes!

For the bruschetta.

Leftover toasts.

My  younger son's corn: he planted it, harvested it, husked it .... and then shared it.

My  older daughter's mind tends to wander....

We  ran out of salsa couple months ago. It's been sorely missed.

Light bulb moment!


Ten-hour workdays and the dirt to prove it.

Built for reading.  

Off to the fair: all four kids, by themselves, yes!!!!!


Feeling a little insecure there, son?

They asked if I'd like to try some samples and I said yes.

How in the world....?!

PS. Prepped this post yesterday but didn't get around to publishing it until today. My excuse: Life.

This same time, years previous: sun-dried tomato and basil pesto torte, kale tabbouleh with tomatoes and cucumbers, stewed greens with tomatoes and chili, and grape jelly.

  2. Awesome sunflower photo! Very beautiful!

  3. Jennifer Jo, I just was reading your salsa recipe and was contemplating it as tomatoes have taken over my counter. You say Sure-gel. Sure-gel the pectin? or Clear-gel. Thanks in advance for a speedy answer.
