WHAT? You don't like Cinnabon? It is a real guilty pleasure for me. I buy a mini bun maybe once a year. Home-style bakeries have disappeared into the American past. I can't even find a donut that isn't pre-made in huge batches in some factory then shipped to the local donut shops for, I guess, a final fry or something. In WA good french-type bread doesn't exist. After 6 years here I did find the real deal, and in my town, a few months back. Shortly thereafter, the bread disappeared from the shelves. The baker of this 1-man tiny bakery had died. Wow.


I love looking at the world through you eyes! What a cool gift from nature to show up in your driveway, looks like it belongs in a dollhouse. I just starteed a blog and wish I'd had my camera with me on my walk yesterday...I saw a squirrel that looked like it hafd a tennis ball sized goiter under it's chin...WEIRD-O! You would have loved it!

Oh! Oh!  I'm so glad you've got a blog now, Dusti!!!!
I'm soooo disappointed you didn't capture Goiter Squirrel at its finest.  They have some nasty crazy nuts, though, so keep your zoom primed for that.

Man I have got to get a job that doesnt require 14 hour days so i can keep up with all the good blogs! LOVE LOVE the cracker jack boxes, i hope they have them in publix! (do you have publix in Texas? Maybe not....)
THAT is an awesome Shlotskys. You are right-i have *never* seen one that looks like that! Lookit all the windows and wood + food = PERFECT NIRVANA. And, do you know i have NNEVER eaten a cinnabon ever? Just never appealed to me...
The wee little pumpkin fairy came and gave you a gift! What did you decide to do with it, I wonder?
PS- Yes CDC is a job hazard not my health hazard hee hee, i work for dept of health headquarters in florida, but besides from being prone to job stress i am healthy! But thanks for worrying! XOXOXOX ♥ Roo

I KNOW!!!!
Small batch bakeries are almost a thing of the past.  When you do find one, though, it makes my heart sing.  By the way, I wanted to comment on your 'perfect slice of toast with butter and apricot jam/preserves' post.  YES!!!! That is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts, down to the jam.  I was wanting to bring some Irish butter back from Austin, but I didn't have cooler space and was scared to transport it in the summer.  SHOOT!
I DO hope you're having a lovely time in California.  That sounds like such a fun outing.  Things like that always kick me into high gear.   I loved the skeleton/glass display case thing tutorial....was that offerred at your workshop?
How sad to lose your local baker.  A one man bakery?  Impressive.

More later,

FOURTEEN hour days??? Are you crazy, woman?  That sounds hideous. 
I used to work a LOT when I was with a gallery, but having my daughter Violet really made
me slow down.  I have less money, but I just couldn't keep it up.  The hours were too much.  You sound like you have an internal caffeine drip, though, so no worries.
No Publixs, by the way.  Just Satan-like Walmart.  And I live in the sticks, anyway, so I have to drive 30 miles to the grocery store.
