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…

BREAD 2: Four Orange Bread

Here's another bread I've done for my 101 goals. If I were able, I'd eat the whole loaf.

Four Orange Bread

1 cup mandarin oranges (I used 1 small can, drained) (don't eat any) (really)
1/4 cup orange juice
1 egg
3 cups bread flour
1 t salt
1 T butter
1/4 cup orange marmalade (I had apricot preserves which I used)
1 1/2 T orange zest
2 t yeast

Put all ingredients in your bread machine. Keep an eye on it to see if it needs more flour. If it looks too sticky while kneading, throw in another 1/4 cup. It all depends on *how* sticky it is. Bake it on the regular or dark setting. That will let it bake a touch longer.

You don't even need butter to eat with this.

Looks yummy. How many more of the 101 are left?

I think I've done six or seven of the 50 breads... Don't worry! I won't post all of them... :)
