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…

And the Rains Came Tumbling Down

It rains so rarely here in Bakersfield that I thoroughly enjoyed today's downpour. After the rain, the sun came out and everything was so clean and bright. It was warm (enough) for the rain to steam off of the fence. Very pretty!

I love the look of this sap oozing from my nectarine tree (which I get to have fruit from this coming year!) (I hope).

When I was little, I wished fairies were real. This looks like a place they would have played.

That's a bit of the pretty in my otherwise plain old backyard.

Fairies playing in the woods always reminds me of Jim Christensen.
