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…

Dum de Dum de Dum

On the way home from work yesterday I pulled over so I could take this amazing picture. It's like a supernova (or the Death Star blowing up).

Okay, this whole Lent thing has made me moody and introspective. Therefore, no art. I was overly optimistic when I said I'd post about the new book I'd folded last week.

In other news, I'm on Instagram now. My 16-year old son was given a Galaxy Player last year for Christmas. It's a tablet that looks like a phone. Unfortunately, he kept making poor choices on the Internet and it was taken away within a few weeks. I've been holding on to it in my dresser drawer, hoping he would learn that we, his parents, mean business when we say certain things are not allowed in our house. Unfortunately, he used up his last chance and I've spent the better part of a week trying to clean up the garbage on the device. I've learned more than I want to know about my son's taste in women. Oh my.

So, I'm putting it to a better use now as my portable camera and wi-fi device. And I Instagram (rhymeswithmagic). Please feel free to follow if you enjoy funny library books and art. :)
