    My cats love to kill - socks, underwear, tshirts, and anything else they can find when my son leaves the drawers of his dresser open. The cats "hunt" in the drawers and bring us their "kills." Thankfully they only like clean prey.

    You are so kind. Thanks for sharing my brownies! They've seriously been my breakfast/lunch/dinner/late night mega indulgence ever since I made them last week. So delicious. Hope you enjoy!! Congrats on the article, by the way. So awesome.

    Love your interview! So that was what you meant by baking donuts while being watched :-D. Now I get it. Appreciate the slow cooker tips too. I use it enough every week to need those pointers. Have a great weekend!

  • February 2, 2013

    thank you so much for the shout out, tracy!

    Seeing that Frida exhibit would be such a dream come true...

  • February 2, 2013

    1. that Frida link was fascinating.

    2. THANK YOU for posting that kitty research. I'm a conservation biologist, and my cats are indoors (since I know all too well what havoc they wreak outdoors), of course. The other day I was laying sideways on the couch, husband at the other end, kitty cat perched on my hip. I said to husband: "Do you know I have a killing machine on my hip?" "Yup." They just ARE. AND I love them. An interesting relationship.

    3. Superb set of links, today. I can't BELIEVE what Victoria's done to her place. I SO don't have that vision, so super appreciate it when other people do. V. inspiring. Thanks!

  • February 2, 2013

    Yay Tracy for your Marin IJ article!! I just started working in San Rafael this past fall and I can't tell you how many times I've crossed the GG bridge to and from work, giggling along to the JtB podcast.

      Oh that's awesome! Thanks so much for listening. What a nice reverse commute you have!

  • February 2, 2013

    Congrats on your interview! Honestly, I think I'd feel WEIRD if a mini-me was running around in my childhood home - props to you for being able to share! How does it feel to have Cooper in your house that used to be your space? I guess when you are a mom you learn to share...I MUST get a doughnut pan, because I REALLY want to make all the ones you blog about. Aaaah doughnuts are so good.

      For the first few months of living here, it felt really creepy. Especially when I would call him from the bottom of the stairs like my mom would call us. Now that we're settled in and our stuff is here, it makes it less creepy. It's bizarre how many flashbacks I get from my childhood!

    Wow! Five years- congrats! I love your blog. The pics are so beautiful and content is so interesting. Don't stop!
