the quotidian (3.23.20)

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

Quick thaw.

Green rice: a good idea needs more salt and maybe a hit of lemon.


When the crust is so packed with butter that it pools on the oven floor, oops. 

And then I got smart: no drips and a perfectly browned bottom crust. 

How did I ever manage without this island?

The trail I leave.

Churching with Ted and breakfast.


A cyclical breathing demonstration.

Beer tasting: when your houseguest has a passion and wants to share it.

A new job for gardener girl: season's bounty

Who let the cows out, moo.

Preparing to run errands.

Blowing off steam.

Perks of zooming.

She's quite fond of her two-leggeds.

Family gathering.

Coffee drinker. 


  1. I am jealous of that island in ways that defy description. Also, my kids loved Jonathan wrestling the cow for church yesterday.

    1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that may have been the first time a live cow's made it to one of our services.... (Also, we sent in two versions of the scripture: a regular one and then one of us just messing around. And wouldn't you know....!)

  2. OK, putting that pie in a cast iron skillet was genius. I may have to try that. And my mess is always huge in the kitchen; more horizontal surfaces, more mess, but that island is perfection! As my husband says of my kitchen, "it's a very active lab" - LOL! You and yours stay safe!
