the quotidian (8.6.18)

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


Good morning, Puerto Rico!


A twelve-year-old's version of a breakfast of champions (snort).


This is more like it.


Green veggies aren't too popular here: doing my best to catch up.


Matchy-matchy.


Café colao: simmered coffee grounds, strained, and then added to hot milk with sugar.


I miss juicy tomatoes.


Happy Birthday, Nilda (a couple weeks late)!: cake made by the boy.


Domplines: my new life goal is to eat these once a week (at least) from now until we leave.


Meanwhile, down on the ground at our feet....


Swirls and loops.

Pretty.


Mr. Yellow Ears came back!



Topping it off.


Funny business.


Worn out, down to the tips of her toes.


Him, too.



Down by the se-ea.

Tiny entertainment.

    1. New York-style bagels? I wish! These are from Sam's Club but they're actually fairly decent, all things considered...

  2. Tomatoes have been terrible this year. We cannot find a decent one anywhere.
