Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

A Tree Grows in Bakersfield, Jackpot and a legion of beads...

I put up my Christmas tree in my office and hung my ornaments on it. All the little old ladies from the Friends of the Library oohed and aahed over them. They're so nice. And they give me money for my library. Love and money - what more could I want from a job?

We got another huge donation of great paperbacks today. I love the old-fashioned romance books - the chaste and not-so-chaste ones. I call them "Lust in the Dust" books, but my co-worker calls them "Heaving Bosom, Throbbing Member" books. Oh my. Anyway, they should make some nice ornaments, too. It's just such a shame that I only have a little bit of time at night to do them. (I've recently started a goal of exercising five days/week and it really cuts into crafting time!)

But I was able to finish much of my special order beads. Hurray! It always feels good to finish big projects. I will be glad to start work on some other bead phrases I want to do. Many pirate things and book-related phrases, too. Tee hee.
