I seem to be at a loss for words these days and pressed for time to blog. Not that there is anything really to blog about as it feels like I'm in a same old, same old pattern right now: run, eat, work, sleep, repeat. That's fine I guess.
I think of myself as someone who has a pretty good vocabulary but last week I learned a new word via a photo challenge that was going around on Facebook: quotidian. Here's mine.
A hole that developed in our downstairs carpet, right in the middle of the floor. We have no idea how. The local branch of the company we bought it from was so rude when I contacted them about repair, that I wrote a letter to the COO at the corporate headquarters and complained. We received the full amount we paid for the repair back in a refund check, along with an apology.
Mr. Helen's birthday cake, which was a four layer chocolate cake, with mousse filling and frosting, and a chocolate ganache drizzle on top. When I went to get it to put the ganache on it, it had imploded. Have no idea why... it sure did taste delicious though. Mr. Helen named it the cow patty cake. (Pictured without ganache or candles.)
So many pretty sunrises while I'm out running in the morning. One morning I even saw a moon set, then a sunrise. I love running this time of year.
This made me laugh so hard!
Another running delight - spring flowers, which are done blooming but now we have honeysuckle!
It took me longer than usual to get the patio set up this year.
In May, we had a couple of freak warm weekend days and I actually got to the beach a full month earlier this year.
What I've been practicing.
One of our favorite local restaurants has Soul Food Sunday. Mr. Helen had the Southern Fried Dinner and I had the Soul Food Sampler. Delicious and a nice break from cooking. Plus, leftovers.
Our gorgeous niece on her Senior Prom night. She's beautiful inside and out and she's really smart. Was President of her class and so involved in her community.
She's headed off to Temple University in August so I made this basket of goodies as her graduation gift.
Of or occurring every day; daily; ordinary or everyday, especially when mundane.
