Lol get it? Okay probably not as funny to you, but around here there’s a town actually called Newtown where a bunch of lizards always run around. Ironically, i don’t think i’ve actually seen a newt there…

I enjoy photoshopping more than i ever imagined i would. It’s what i do when i’m stressed out or just want to relax. Is that strange?
Been working on a lot of “sexual harassment in the workplace” courses lately so this guy has been popping up on almost every post-it note i’ve got. Gave this lil buddy to my coworker who had a rather good laugh after the joke sank in. Two cheers for dark humor! Hip hip… horaaay…?
So I was having a bad week (year) and things were really starting to crash down hard. Then, while on my way to work, i randomly glance over at the field - separated from our parking lot by a fence and a gaggle of untamed bushes - and i saw a baby deer sleeping in the meadow O_O
THAT BABY DEER IS DOWNRIGHT MAJESTIC!
^ First thought that ran through my mind when seeing it. With THAT much enthusiasm.
After getting out of my car, running silently to the fence and taking a few crappy photos with my super old android, I pointed it out to a few coworkers who also come in early. One guy said, “Wow how’d you catch that? That’s not something you would see if you weren’t looking for it.” I wholeheartedly agree, which is why i’m convinced the Lord sent me a baby deer this morning so i could genuinely smile for the first time in quite a while. Thank You, Lord, for the gift of downright majestic baby critters who bring us unexplainable joy.
(By the way, it was adorable watching all these guys pull out their cameras and phones like “aww it’s so cute and little and sweet” lolol men.)
(Oh! And it IS alive because we saw its ears twitching. I thought it was dead for a sec at the beginning… But it’s totally not XD)
