the quotidian (10.16.17)

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

Asparagus beans, from a friend.

Tied into wreaths and then lightly steamed.


Sometimes my husband complains there isn't enough granola. For his birthday, I shut him up.

Marking time.

Fallen ones.

All day long, dark and dreary.

My people. 

This same time, years previous: a list, the adjustment, the quotidian (10.15.12), grab and go: help wanted, three vignettes: my husband, how to have a donut party, part one, apple cake, 2008 garden stats and notes.


  1. your people know how to pose for a picture.

  2. except for that glum one in the back.

  3. You have a lovely family. I like the picture of your farmhouse in the fog. That would be a nice black and white print.

    I like to read back through your same time last year links. Couple questions...why did you go to Nicaragua the 2 times? Was that part of a missions trip? I saw the building of the fort in one post and then in another later I saw the burning down of the fort. ???

    1. 1. The house: Thank you!
      2. We volunteered with Mennonite Central Committee.
      3. Forts, they come and go!
