the quotidian (1.23.17)

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

Busy and productive: just how I like it.

A gift: honeysuckle—HONEYSUCKLE—jelly.

Company prep: candles, cookies, and and a task for when I'm running my mouth.

Keeping everlastingly at it: crackers, bread, and granola.

Homemade peanut butter: the boy got a bee in his bonnet and just had to make some.

Writing group: the remains.

Because tossing them on the floor is easier.

She teaches (and has openings!).

Cat cube.

This same time, years previous: blizzard of 2016, lazy stuffed cabbage rolls, the quotidian (1.20.14), world's best pancakes, rocks in my granola, and other tales, the quotidian (1.23.12), chuck roast braised in red wine, moving forward, peanut noodles, on thank-you notes, pink cupcakes, in no particular order, movie night, on not wanting, and capturing the moment.


  1. Honeysuckle jelly!? Is that as magical as I imagine it is?

    1. Light and ethereal---my kids devoured it. The process is unbelievably painstaking. It's fairy jelly, basically.

  2. come on John, get that kitchen island done already!

  3. The cat cube....what a beautiful picture! I don't even like cats (not even a little bit) and I almost want to buy a print off you and frame it, just so gorgeous.

  4. Do you have a recipe for your icebox cookies?
