A Doodle a Day—This past eight day’s spread!

There is so much nutty stuff in here. I have discovered that the day’s events usually influence the daily doodle; therefore, I have tried to hold off doodling it until the evening(I used to do it in the morning).

One of my Β great accomplishments this past week was getting my office organized. I mean REALLY organized, which included culling dozens and dozens of my beloved toys out of it. There were just so many I couldn’t quite function in here. I hated to see them packed up, but they haven’t gone far—my favorites are in a bright orange tub under one of my desks.
I am slowly learning how to purge and focus more on art and writing than collecting. It’s a lifetime habit I am trying to curb.
Anyway, another task I completed this week was getting my address book situated. Before, my book consisted of a small looseleaf notebook that had about half its addresses entered in neatly and in ABC order—that was done about five years ago. Somehow over time I started just scribbling people’s info on little colored pieces of paper and simply shoving them in the book. I could remember what color of paper people’s info was put on, but their addresses were just scattered willy-nilly through the stack of paper. Finding an address meant unpiling the whole stack and boy was I sick of it. I was not ABOUT to recopy every address, so I got a big looseleaf notebook, filled it with paper, and taped all those colored pieces of paper into it in ABC order. Then all the previous book’s addresses got taped in, too. I am sure that was much more than you wanted to read, but hey, it was a victory on my end!

This weekend, Steve and I also watched the new Beauty and the Beast live action movie. I found myself really enjoying it, even though for the first thirty minutes I just kinda felt as if we were watching Hermione’s Continuing Adventures in France or somesuch. The characters that were “objects” got a little grating on my eyes until someone in my brain said “hey, that is probably what they would actually look like if they were real”, and I stopped focusing on them so much. I especially enjoyed Ian McKellan as Cogsworth. And I ended up liking the Beast quite a bit, too. Anyway, I was trying to draw the Beast from the old animated movie, from memory. Ergh.

This is a screencap of the homescreen of my phone. I love my little alien friends!

And my beloved The Purple Stuff Podcast returned at last, with an episode all about sharks! Β Β Β Shark week is just around the corner, so it was perfect, perfect timing.
