The Quotidian (30. 3. 15)

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


Retiring this piece of artwork after about ten years of service.


Replaced by this canvas print ~ one of Calvin's from our trip.


Model of Big Ben put together by our Austin ~ it's a treasure.
(It lives on the shelf just below Calvin's print.)


All prettied up for studies.


Our dishwasher quit ~ it's fixed now...yippee!


A leak.


The temporary fix.


The paper carriers ~ taken in secret through the window.


After the match.


Always creating.


Just before moving it all out so Calvin could move in.
And, God is good.  Always.

Happy Monday!
With Love, Camille

I love Calvin's print! And Austin's model, you're right, such a treasure! Oh no, your roof!! Maybe we could set something up, I happen to know a pretty decent roofing crew. ;-)

Calvin's print looks fantastic and a perfect pairing with Austin's model! My dishwasher has been out of action for weeks and still waiting on the warranty people to make a decision on whether they will cover the cost of fixing the split component which is inside the machine .. the one my son found that the repairman said was just a split hose. They really don't like having to drive out of town. We are keeping up so far and getting plenty of practice for when we will be washing up all the vintage china for the family wedding in July. Almost everything for the 100 place settings has to be washed by hand! The price to pay for prettiness but our grandmothers did it all without dishwashers every single day and as I remind my children I grew up without a dishwasher and with only one sister was on the dishes roster every night in a tiny cramped kitchen!
Not long now and our girl will be boarding that plane to Canada. It has come around so quickly and this year is just going by too quickly for my liking!

I like Calvin's photograph and the Big Ben piece of architecure by Austin fits the bill to finish the scene. I am deciding what's going up next in our living room on the gallery wall. Oh so many photos to chose from. Have a blessed week and hopefully you'll get the repairs for roof and dishwasher done soon. Hugs!

Camille said...

Dear Melissa ~ Thank you, sweet friend. Hugs to you! :)

Dear Esther ~ Haha...the roof? I am sure your crew will be glad to be left out of this one. :)

Dear Ann ~ Ah, hand washing...been there, done that...but, not for 100 place settings! I am sure it will be lovely. I hope your warranty covers your repairs. We had ours fixed under warranty...yippee! Yes, your young lady will be here before we know it! :)

Dear Becky ~ It's so hard to choose the right photos to print and display, isn't it? Happy decorating. Hugs to you. :)

With Love,
Camille

Loved everything about this post. So wonderful you have such memories of things from Austin. Made me sad and smile all at the same time...if that is even possible.

Hugs and prayers my friend,
Connie

I love Calvins Print and so wonderful to pair it with Austin's model. They look perfect together. Such a mixture of feelings I am sure. Glad your dishwasher is back up and running; it is so nice to have these modern helpers. Loved looking back at your school room transformation, what a wonderful school room, and precious children and Mom/teacher.
Have a lovely week, and a blessed Passover and Resurrection Sunday.

Camille said...

Dear Connie ~ Yes, it is absolutely possible...that's how it is for us so often! Hugs to you. :)

Dear Pam ~ You are one sweet encourager my friend...thank you so much for your kind words. Hugs! :)

With love,
Camille
