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 3: Chocolate Buttermilk Bread

This is a strange bread - only slightly chocolate, but kinda sour-tasting (the buttermilk). I used it to make french toast. Yummity yum yum.

Chocolate Buttermilk Bread

1 1/4 C water
3 T butter
1/4 C buttermilk powder
3 C bread flour
1 1/2 T cocoa powder
1 t salt
2 T sugar
1/2 T yeast
3 oz chopped dark chocolate

Put all ingredients (minus chocolate) in bread machine on sweet bread setting. At the beep, add the chocolate. Make french toast with the end product:

I got a free bread maker when I leased my last car. I have yet to use it but I just might have to take it out of the box after seeing your posts.

Car = bread machine?

I think they were doing their best to give you "dough" for your dough, huh?
