Boh and I returned from my parents’ house to find a package of treats waiting for us: two books from Jodi over at A Caffeinated Yarn, in celebration of her blogiversary. I spent about an hour flipping through them last night (ignoring all the little things I should have been doing), and I can’t wait to spend more time with them. The Gentle Art of Domesticity is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It strikes me as a thoughtful and very personal set of intelligent insights on crafting, filled with inspiration ranging from the colors of hard candy to more obscure examples of European painting depicting the domestic arts. Mocha is filled with instructions for drinks, breakfast treats, and desserts, and I can’t wait to try out these recipes. (My friend K. has a milk frother/steamer, so we may have to try these at her house.)

Thanks, Jodi!

  1. My first thought when I saw your photo was that you were about to spill your mug in the bottom right corner — then realized it was a cover photo… lol

    I have The Gentle Are of Domesticity. It wasn’t quite what I expected, but I really enjoy it. :)

  2. How cool! The Gentle Art of Domesticity has been on my wish list for awhile…I think I’m going to have to just bite the bullet and order it.

  3. Speaking of books in the mail… I got one! Picked it up on my way to the shores of Augur Lake, then laid wet on the dock reading it until i fell asleep (it wasn’t long, admittedly). Looking forward to the rest of it! And I will put your music on my new iPooper Shuffle (i caved!!)

    THANK YOU!!!!
