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…

If I Fits In It, I Sits In It

When my mother-in-law died, she left behind a lot of really wonderful things, one of which was a leather satchel/suitcase thing. The other day, when I was preparing to go out of town, I found the satchel held my watercolor stuff perfectly. Like it was *made* for it. I showed Brian what I'd put in the case and his face kinda fell. He was jealous that I'd grabbed it first... hahahaha! It has a certain steampunk feel - all leathery and old-fashioned looking.

So, I was sitting out on the patio last night, as I am wont to do in the still-sunny evenings, with my new-found portable art studio case and had set up my little painting area when I went inside the house to get something.

I came back outside to find this:

What is it about things that cats think to themselves -"I fit! I sit!" So sweet Ginny kept me company while I painted.She drinks my paintbrush rinse water, too.

Ginny looks just like a kitty I used to have named Aja -- tawney orange.
