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…

Collage of Gratitude

Today's challenge on The Spark is to find five things you are most grateful for and take pictures of them to put on your blog.

The problem: I couldn't limit it to five!

Here is my collage o' gratitude:

From the top left, going clockwise: Easter lilies by my bed, my kids, my artspace, my kid making my laugh, my bed (NEW - we just got a queen-size after nearly four years sharing a double...aah... space!), Harry Potter books and all books, my folded book art, my two cats (they look identical so having a pic of only one suffices. This one is Harriet. If you change the color of the nose to pink, you have Hermione. So there.) Last of all, in the middle is my hubby, Brian. I think I'll keep him.

Let me know what you are grateful for.
