the quotidian (11.25.19)

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

What in the world is wrong with people?

The organized baker.

Homemade frosted cornflakes: a first (and maybe last) draft. 

Habaneros, cleaned and frozen: a wonderful addition to chili. Also, cocoa powder.

And then all the fire alarms went off. Repeatedly. 

It was pretty bad.

Loyalty: I will wait while you pee. 

TMJ: the pain is real. (She's seeing a chiropractor this week.)

It's so strange, the things that soothe us: her beloved childhood spit rag.

Plank your sister.

The neighbors got a husky and we stole/borrowed it.

Horizontal for a week.


This same time, years previous: the quotidian (11.26.18), curried Jamaican butternut soup, in my kitchen: 7:35 a.m., candid crazy, how to use up Thanksgiving leftovers in 10 easy steps, a big day at church, a Thanksgiving walk, right now, cranberry pie with cornmeal streusel topping.


  1. You are such a tease! There are no answers, only riddles. And that _is_ a beautiful cactus. I hope you Thanksgiving week is going well.

  2. My night guard was a life changer. Begone, daily headaches and limited diet. Hello, bagel sandwiches.

    1. She's had a night guard for a couple years now, and it no longer seems to be helping....
