wah wah wah wah wonder

i drew things i was thinking/dreaming about
i have been having a lot of worried thoughts lately, but also a lot of hopeful ones too.
also, hey i am in a rad art show tonight! 

i swear i am going to get better about talking about all the neat things i am doing. it's a lady group show at guapo comics. it will be up for about a month or so. sadly i am not able to go to the opening because i am sick again. ugh. BLERG. on the bright side graham and i are going to draw comics together, drink hot tea and be cozy.
ok comics and rest time.
love, rebecca

bitter butter better

lately: strawberries overload and flowers are blooming. i can see them from my window and every time i see them i have a mini joy fit! also i have claimed part of our room with a flag. graham does not seem to mind as long as his taxidermy turtle has a place to stay.
in other news, i am feeling better and stronger lately. i can sit up and paint again for a few hours at a time! it feels so good. it's nice to have goals and plans again that do not revolve around medicine or a doctor visit.
sighs and rhubarb pies,

cosmos and soup on my brain

i made curried butternut squash today and was surprised that it was so easy.
i put yogurt in it too (when i ladled it into my mug) because it's delicious to do so and because i do what i want. here's the recipe:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (2 1/2-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 5-6 cups low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 3 lil bay leaves 
  • a pinch of fresh chopped ginger root, a small thumb size
 heat up the oil, garlic, and onion until they get a little soft, then add the butternut squash, curry powder and everything else. cover and let it boil for a bit. when the squash gets soft (about 15 minutes into the boiling) turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves, and pour it into a blender. blend. when you pour it back into the pot i recommend grinding in a little pepper and a sprinkle or two more of salt, it brings out the flavor a little more.  hooray, instant winter soup that is good for you!
also i am very inspired by this lately:
