Cereal for dinner at 11 pm.  I’m totally an adult.

Today was a pretty good day with my grandmother.  For most of the visit she had some idea who I am, although at some point she told a PSW that I was her mother who had come to visit.  We sat for a while and she told me about her paintings again.  She’s losing her grasp on some of them, but for others she can still tell the anecdotes I remember from when I was a kid.

On the topic of paintings…The long term care home she’s in is participating in Toronto’s Nuit Blanche art festival. Art by residents is going to be shown in a gallery downtown.  I haven’t gone to Nuit Blanche the last few years, but this is something I cannot miss.  Kevin wants to come with me which is really wonderful; the support will be needed, I’m sure.

“When the Japanese repair broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”

We put out calendars in 2012, and so many people have asked for more!  I didn’t have time to put out a flip-book type calendar, so I thought I would make a poster one!  In the style of those tea towel calendars.  If I can source some tea towels, I’ll do that.  But a poster is good too!  I will let you know when it is in the shop!

I made Red Riding Hood sketches along these lines a while ago, and I like Dorito Person Red Riding Hood.

Just a little dorito, going to Grandma’s house.

I would like for my left wrist not to give out.  That would be nice.  

Also my hip.  WTF.  I’m genuinely concerned that my arthritis is spreading because walking at my grandmother’s pace was so painful.

So many good books out this week: The Fade Out (Brubaker/Phillips Hollywood Pulp!), Ghost Rider, Ms Marvel, Adventure Time, Little Nemo (art by Locke & Key’s Gabriel Rodriguez!), WicDiv and Sisters (new book by Smile author Raina Telgemeier!). We’re lucky people.

Had a really hard time deciding between the standard and magazine size Fade Out editions… can’t wait to read it though.
