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…

Christmas Baking- December 21, 2019

I only had one thing I wanted to do today:  make cookies for my family Christmas presents. We didn't get home from errands until after 2pm (where does the day go?) and everyone was mad at everyone else - I have trouble keeping my mouth shut. 

But the mood eventually lightened and I got into the kitchen, cleaned it for the first time all week (I'm not really sorry) and made 1, 2, THREE batches of cookie dough and two batches of candy. It was like magic. 

I watched TV (I never really sit down to watch, but I get distracted when others are watching) and then drug myself into the art room. 

I made hearts. I'm a bit lost with watercolor right now and practicing with these pre-drawn hearts, using 2-3 colors helps me feel like I'm doing something.
