“[Hours Ago] Me: Do I have a scary street sweeper shuffling through the scary scene in the Square of Salt?
Me: I DO!
***
[Now] Me: Do I have Deirdre walking around in a ridiculous bathrobe while she is guarding Grace?
Me: I DO!”
— I make a great team with myself #OTP

This is a Deirdre that I just drew on the inside of a cereal box. I was just excited because in the morning when I decide I drew her totally out of proportion, the fact that cereal!Deirdre currently looks exactly like the Deirdre in my head will disappear.

  • my future kid: mom do we really have to watch this again???

Today I found the tiniest baby painted turtle ever in a cul-de-sac near the lake where I live. Sometimes they get taken by birds, sometimes they get lost and dehydrate on the way to the lake from their nests – in this case, because it was uninjured, I’m inclined to assume the latter – oh, the perils of being tiny. So I picked it up, thinking, “Oh sad, it’s dead.” BUT THEN ITS TINY FOOT MOVED so I ran back to the lake and brought it where I know all the young painters seem to congregate. When it smelled the lake, it started running around in circles on my hand and I watched it paddle four or five feet to freedom until I couldn’t see it anymore. It was so adorable. It kept looking back like, “This is what I wanted, human.” I really hope it survives. It was so adorable and so, so tiny. It had a lot of personality for a creature that did not expect to live and between the running in circles and the majestic paddling, it reminded me of Luisa.

I made this. Happy Easter!
