Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
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…

I've been doing good things in my long blog absence!

It's just too hot to be in the mood to do much, but after a couple of weeks vainly attempting to write the Free Form Folds tutorial, I decided to take a mental break and work on a book my sister asked me to make for a friend of hers.

It's made using Segoe Script - a free font. It's easily readable and so pretty!

In other news, I've been busier in the evenings now that I've taken up a martial art. Yeah, me. Girly-girl Heather is doing Kung Fu. My husband, Brian, is a Kung Fu Master (yesI'mPROUD) and I'm finally ready to be taught by him. I've been taking lessons now for a little more than a month and am getting more fit and more confident in my ability to defend myself. :)

Oh, the Pain!

*snark alert: This would have been worse if they were able to spell! All the same, I AM bummed! I thought this would have been the perfect venue for my book art.

I can't help but think about the Sound of Music and the words in the song about when a door closes, another window opens. I wonder if that will be the case here...

In other news, I'm working on my Free Form Folds tutorial... The introduction is done as well as a few other pages. I'm struggling with words right now! I can show people how to do things, but writing the instructions? YIKES!

Prayers for the loosening of my tongue would be much appreciated! :)
