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…


Read. Every day.

We just found out today that our County's budget for the library only allots $.31/person in the county.

The state average is about $6.75/person in other counties.

Our county has no understanding of the importance of libraries.


p.s. Sorry the tutorial is taking so long. Between working full-time at the library, working part-time at the College, doing Etsy and being a mom, I'm a bit swamped. This is not an excuse! I love my life! I am also experiencing horrible writer's block with the tutorial... I have made it bigger than I can handle, so I'm going to have my husband help me. He is a natural writer and has helped me tons before. Thanks for the patience!


Wow, .31. sigh.

Your books, as always, are beautiful.
