the quotidian (5.13.19)

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

The younger daughter bakes. 

Her recipes rarely work out for me: not sure why I keep trying....

A mean trick.

Helping her create a budget spreadsheet.

Planting tomatoes.

Chopped-up tree + power tools = dream playground.

Full throttle.

Hamburger in the making. 

Girl and her goat.

Studying (haha) for his Kaplan exam.

Surprise! While cleaning out our cupboards (for my Mother's Day present), she discovered a stash! 

Edith Frank and Peter Van Daan.


  1. Great Mother's Day Present!!! (Did she get finders/keepers?!)

    1. I know! Cupboards and drawers (silverware, plastics, canning lids, measuring cups, spice, etc) organized and washed down, shoe shelf straightened, fridge sorted, etc. It was my older daughter and my younger son (and then the next day he came downstairs, noticed that the microwave was dirty, and washed the whole thing!)

      The kids are still actively lobbying to each get a hundred, but my husband and I haven't decided yet. We may need to be the boring adults and put it into savings....

  2. so who was hiding money?

    1. That's the great mystery! (Though we're pretty sure it was either John or me --- we're claiming that cash!)

  3. Maybe a visitor put it there for you to find.

  4. Maybe they wanted to see how often you clean out your cabinets

    1. Haha, no. But it’s a nice idea, isn’t it?
