the quotidian (7.17.18)

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

(one day late, shhh)



New cuts.

Surprise birthday breakfast: success!


Because some people care: World Cup.

New arrival.

New group.

New friends: spoons

Outage, grumble-grumble.

This same time, years previous: the quotidian (7.17.17), in which a pitt bull bites my butt, ouch, this new season, Saturday nights, roasted beet salad with cumin and mint, Jeni's best ever vanilla ice cream.


  1. Happy 17th birthday! May it be a very good year! :-)

    Ah, spoons. Fond memories of playing Combat Spoons in youth group. In most ways, it's the same game; just put the spoons in an entirely different room... preferably without anything breakable on the path. I'm not 100% sure I can recommend it, but it *was* fun, and I don't remember anyone getting any major injuries...

    Are the birthday dog biscuits for the local friendly dog, or is there some other thing going on there? Also: wow, that is a lot of twizzler-ness.

    1. Combat Spoons sounds hilarious!

      The dog biscuits are for the local dog, yes. (We've already bought dog shampoo for that same dog, at the girl's insistence.) And yeah, it's a lot of Twizzlers, but we've all been happily helping to eat them....

  2. Hi Daryl!!! (He told me he saw you guys and that he was going back again!)

  3. Happy 17th Birthday!

    We have Twizzler lovers here, also, though some prefer the bites and some the straws. No one likes the pull aparts though.
