the quotidian (10.12.20)

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

For my birthday, I made my own cake: London Fog.

Breakfast of champions: a stale croissant, sliced, griddled, and stuffed with ham and sharp cheddar.


Sometimes I text my family photos of my working meals just to be mean. 

A little of both.

I'm having trouble keeping up.

Open-air study.

Fall days.

The kid wanted a bird-feeder so he put one up.

For my husband's special day.

The cake (made by my younger daughter) was delicious.

This same time, years previous: English muffins, the relief sale doughnuts of 2017, the quotidian (10.10.16), salted caramel ice cream, home, party on, old-fashioned brown sugar cookies.


  1. Happy Birthday! I read recently that October babies are the most successful people.

    1. Thank you! (But actually, my birthday is at the end of the September. My husband and older son, though, are both October babies....)

  2. That cake looks magnificent!

    Happy Birthday to all of you!
