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…

Ready for the Games and I've Made a Friend

Up until 12:20am last night making the rest of the stuff for the Scottish Games to be held here in Bakersfield. I decided to empty out my shop of all its non-moving stuff and offer it for a discount at the games. Maybe it will be different when people see the jewelry in person vs. the Internet. Yes, I know that's ALWAYS going to be different... Anyway, if I'm able to divest myself of the old, I can start anew. Fresh is good!

A mosquito hawk has been flying around our house for the past couple of days. Last night it fluttered all around my work table. And then it settled on me. There's something comforting in the fact that an innocent creature of God trusts you.

Even if it is a bug.

I have to thank you. Since moving to the mountains of PA, I have been swarmed every year by these. I didn't know what they were! I assumed they were male mosquitoes on the prowl. But your description, 'mosquito hawk' led me to the wiki on Crane Flies, which helped me understand why our lawn is covered in these huge buggers. They feed on the roots...aha! Thought they were harmless, but now I feel better knowing for sure that they are not taking part in breeding mosquitoes. THANKS.
