Not every day is exciting or thrilling. Some days are just get the job done days and all about the mundane, humdrum tasks of life.
Yesterday I filled up my mundane tasks calling card with a couple loads of laundry. Sheets and towels in addition to the one load per day that I do, regardless.
Having a small child also necessitates daily laundry. Kids get messy, period.
A few other mundane tasks included:
taking out the trash and recycling cans
getting the mail
scrubbing 4 toilets (we have 4 bathrooms. Don’t ask me why there are so many bathrooms for a small urban rowhouse. I wasn’t the builder.)
putting the sheets back on the bed
grocery store run for some produce
organizing my silverware drawer
cleaning my shower
organizing and making Skylar’s books neat and orderly. All 200 of them that were a big hodgepodge and mess.
I could go on and on but won’t bore you with the humdrum tasks of my life. You have your own.
I will move on to food. That’s more exciting.
Pair them with Cinnamon Sugar Chickpea “Peanuts”
Or Pair With Sesame Ginger Maple Tofu
Dessert/Snack: Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter and Oat Snack Bars (Vegan, GF, 5 minutes to make)
From my last post on Pretty and Not So Pretty Pictures, I am glad you enjoyed the food styling book review. If you’re at all interested in food pictures or food styling, I highly recommend it.
Also, I’m glad to know I am not the only one who feels like certain subjects and certain food just do not photograph well. I liked hearing about your tricky shots, too.
It was also great to read that you have plenty of not so pretty pictures on your blog. Misery loves company. As I said in the post, we all start somewhere and I am not proud of about 90% of the pictures on my blog but I am trying to do better! I am glad you liked my photography tips. Again, I am no expert, clearly!
1. What non-thrilling, lackluster, mundane, humdrum tasks have you accomplished lately? But doesn’t it feel good to get them done?
went to the bank and cashed a couple checks
filled up my gas tank
researched a couple things online
did tons of dishes. I was in the kitchen creating a new recipe. That was the exciting part. The dishes? Not so much.
2. Did you get a workout in?
Yes I sure did!
Need any ideas?

3. Bake Sales!
Secondly, go Bbd on Katie’s Vegan Blog Bake Sale for Japan items. Dozens of bloggers donated vegan goodies and the bid proceeds go to the people of Japan.
I am donating Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
