the quotidian (10.17.16)

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

Such a marvelous food.

This is what giving up looks like.

Nobody was a fan.

Her eyes were bigger than her stomach.

I made this salad (which I love), and my husband said, 
"All butternut squashes belong in pies." 

Debate entertainment.

Anything to distract from Algebra.

Stunned: window-crash victim.

Sideways thinking: I bought the game for my husband because I knew it would 
make the kids happy, which would, in turn, would make him happy, and I was right.

Post (no-Jennifer-and-therefore-very-fast) run, cool-down strip.


This same time, years previous: a list, the adjustment, grab and go: help wanted, that thing we do, apple cake, and pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting.


  1. Wow, that's a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker! Poor thing. Did it collide with the window where you guys found that little House Sparrow a while back? Some stickers and shiny objects to break up the window's visual transparency may reduce bird collisons. Hope this little guy was ok afterwards!

  2. Had to laugh out loud with "All butternut squashes belong in pies". I totally agree! Don't see the appeal AT ALL with ANY KIND of squash but put it in a pie and somehow it's magically transformed into something decadently edible!
